"Booster" flag/zones.

There is High Speed. There is Quick Turn. There is Linear (physics). There is Spin (physics). is it possible to combine the two (sorta) and make physics that will boost tank speed AND/OR make it turn faster (left or right, unlike spin, where can turn fast only one way). here's gameplay with physics ...

Re: Different Maps

personally, i like more realistic maps (like overdose by temvss, or any of louman's maps for example). yes, they do take forever to load, but in the end one can really appreciate all the work a mapmaker put in the map. it's kinda sad that maps like that are not the most popular ones, yet the ones th...

BZFlag 3.0 server

heard that in 3.0 most things will be done by server, and client won't be responcible for "got shot" type messages. in 2.0 most things are done by client, and server don't do much question: if server is 2.0, and client is 3.0, how will that work? from what i understand, server will expect client to ...

Re: Un f5-able wall?

sniper, it depends on tank speed. at _ts 100, the wall will have to be about 30 units thick. of course for slower speeds, it won't have to be that big. _tankSpeed 10 --- wall thikness 2+ (size 1 * *) _tankSpeed 20 --- wall thikness 2+ (size 1 * *) _tankSpeed 30 --- wall thikness 4+ (size 2 * *) _tan...

Wind would affect your tank most while you are not touching the ground, (since while your tank is on the ground, it is affected by friction). Whereas physics drivers would on...

also ya'll can edit the textures themselves. go to "c:\program files\bzflag2.0.10\data\..." (default location in WinXP) instead of 2.0.10, it might be 2.0.12 BZFlag version (depending on what you got) open a texture in MSPaint (simplest) or any other immage aditor, and start editing! :) as you migh...

nice that you (don't look like u do, anyway) don't use alot of textures/meshes. That will make this map load alot faster.
