Night textures

Is it possible to make textures that change when it becomes 'night time' on a map? So far the only thing that changes is lighting.

Re: Castle Garden, my first map

Would it be possible to adjust the 'draw distance' so not as much is rendered at any given moment?

Re: BzFlag is dying

First of all, i appologise for not playing in so long! (don't have good internet any more) Second: TF2 (Team Fortress 2) and games similar to it (even those little facebook games) are so popular cause one can upgrade their stuff, like llrr pointed out. Don't know about 2.4, is it still client-based?...

Re: Material not loading

One more thing: BZFlag blocks most textures (safety thing,i'm guessing). By default you can only use textures off "images.bzflag.org" To use textures from other sources you need to locate "downloadAccess" file (in "My Documents/My BZFlag Files" on Windows), open it with your favorite text editor, an...

Re: Different Settings for different zones??

wish there was a way to make a drivethrough box with physics that work while one is in the box. think water: you jump off a high point on the map, land in the water, sink a bit, and then are slowly pushed back to the surface...

Re: World Weapons

i believe another way of doing the SW is in "base". Example:
base
position 0 0 0
size 10 10 3
color 1
oncap SW
end

Re: Humpty Dumpty Capture The Flag!

nice use of curved walls, Yrogirg. most map makers try using only boxes/strait walls, which makes maps boring. Yours, on the other hand got some curves, making rico more interesting. great layout, too.

Usergroup helper

Had an idea that should make setting up usergroups (groupdb) easier. since i have no experience with html, i have only made the "form" part of the script using an online editor.
all that's left now is to make it output a text file (a groupdb file) using input from checkboxes.
