I have suggested this before: http://my.bzflag.org/bb/viewtopic.php?t=9391&highlight= Great minds think alike. :) Of course, I was only concerned with accidental spawn-kills. Hepcat, for example, has become very popular again and it's a real problem there. Especially because when you are killed by ...

Spawnkill Prevention

It would be nice not to get killed immediately upon spawning. Perhaps for a short time period after spawning, the tank should be able to move, but not shoot or pick up a flag and that during this period you cannot be shot. This would give you enough time to manouver and avoid incoming shots. I'd say...

I like this idea but I think it should only be possible to damage the base by getting close to it. Otherwise someone with a laser can sit in comfort, far away, and wreak havoc.

By the way, I initially thought a countdown sequence sound would be a good idea (i.e. "3, 2, 1, GO!") but decided against it because it would require a server mod to delay the timer reatart and would not be worth the effort since it adds nothing to the user experience. Also there is already a server...

Timer Sounds

It should be possible for the following timer events to have an accompanying sound: Timer started : Perhaps "Go!". Timer Stopped : When the timer is stopped, for whatever reason during a match, often players continue to shoot because they haven't noticed. An appropriate sound would help prevent this...

Ricochet Enhancements

An option I'd love to see, is a bullet that only activates after a ricochet . This could be a server option of perhaps a bad flag (RA - RicoActivated - Your bullets only kill after a ricochet) Secondly, a spin option, which would put spin on a bullet after a ricochet . This would effect the bounce a...
