Re: 20 minute matches? Your feedback please

The reason I suggest the log function instead of simply 2/3 is because generally the team leading at the 20 minute mark is more likely to still be leading at the 30 minute mark. So it should get a percent of the points closer to the standard 30 minutes. Same premise as if hour matches were allowed,...

20 minute matches? Your feedback please

I'll make it short and simple. Should we allow 20 minute matches? If so, then in what way? It would probably result in more activity etc., so for the most part there is agreement among admins that this is a good idea, but there are differences when it comes to how it should be implemented. This is w...

No I'm the original pillbox.

Re: Another league Tourney.

How about a 24 hour match, with a minimum of 2 Vs 2. You apply to play, giving a time-range that would suit you, and you are randomly given a team. You co-ordinate with the team captains (number depends on how many required to cover all 24 hours) to let them know when you will be available to play. ...

Re: Riker's!

Congratulations to Kierra & R3lax and the U.S. team.
A well deserved win.

My inexperience in Rikers was obvious. I never dreamed it would be so difficult to send a message to an individual. It took a minute just to find their name in the list. :-)

Unless you want multiple observers, so that you can see what your enemy sees and circumvent ST flag etc.

800m? I didn't realise that we dealt with real-world measurements in the map. Thought it was just arbitrary units in 3 dimensions. Oh well. It was fun while it lasted.

Re: Cool little link I found

If you take player lag into account, light is still faster ;) You're forgetting that the BZWorld is actually viewed in scale and that the HIX map is almost 45 light-seconds across. Frankly I'm amazed at the acceleration of the tanks. If it wasn't for their minuscule mass, they'd explode just by mov...

"that stuff" that has been reported to apparently travel faster than light are some type of neutrinos (actually, a minuscule proportion of them), and there are serious doubts in the scientific community that the experiment is correct. And there are good reasons to think so. We already have faster-t...

Re: BZFlag 2.4.1 (trunk) - compile errors

try skipping the autogen step.
just run ./configure and then make after unpacking the sources.

In general the first error is the important one and the following errors are collateral damage.

I agree with you JeffM, but FangUp said it was for his own map that he wanted this exploit for, so in this case the map developer wants it.

A plugin can not convert a player to an observer. But you could spawn them in a spectator area, where they can do no harm. Or they could continually be spawned in "Hell" where they are killed by a World Weapon. After which it would be more fun for them to voluntarily go to observer mode. Another op...
