That one's nice.

I thought up an idea for the Useless flag a while back, which would turn it into more of a bad flag: It makes all of your kills not worth anything. You don't get any points for shooting other tanks.

Let's not let my idea hijack this thread, though.

Yeah, that's a pretty weird flag idea. I could see a turret coming out in the back but under the tank, sorta like an exhaust pipe.

Just for future reference, that's not called a "Superstar". It's actually a Starman. Well..at least the power up is a Starman. The kind that you collect in SM64 are just plain old stars.

I found this diagram of how to make mario out of lego - this might help if you are looking to build him out of meshboxes. http://www1.odn.ne.jp/asobo/Lego-jpg/lego-mario.jpg I think you should go for the original pixelated mario - it's just more funky and retro, plus it will probably look cool in 3...

Grassroots, or greengrass or something. hepcat used to host it by itself, then they mixed overlord with it, then they took it off... then they put it back on recently (early this year). I need to get those. *edit* Silvercat used to host it too and the ground was all... steel looking with a cat logo...

Actually cosmos, that's not the one I'm talking about. It wasn't Overlord or Pillbox, either. This was one way back in 1.10.8. That map and Two Castles used to be the only two maps I went on back then.

I'd like to see one of those really old Hepcat map. I don't remember exactly what it was called, but it had jumping, rico, and superflags, and it was a red vd. green CTF. If someone can post pics of it, it might help me to remember it.

I had this happen to me before. You don't need to screw around reinstalling BZ or anything.

You should get the laser color back...

Yo, holla to my fellow BZFraggas! w00t, w00t! I mean, um....hi. :lol-old: Last week I had an interesting idea. I'm pretty sure it's possible to do.

If I'm on higher platform and the GMer is on a lower platform, i usually try to tease him into shooting at me, then at the last second after he fires I back up on the platform. it's pretty fun to do.

Heck no. That would ruin the gameplay on servers like Hide 'n Seek Hills, Mofo, Twin Peaks and others.

I like Wings the best, but GM, SW, laser, SB, and high sped are also pretty high up there. I mainly like Wings because of maps like Hide 'n Seek Hills that use WG to really get a unique style of play. Plus there's WG fights, which are awesome on servers with a lot of _wingsJumpCount and also have _s...
