Each have their ups and downs. Wings is easier to use, Blender takes a while. Blender and Wings each have some commands the other does not. Blender is more powerful than Wings. If you wanna go beyond BZFlag map making, you can make movies(I think), games, animated models, and on top of that, can mak...

My favorite is the "/poll set (callsign)'s pants on fire" :twisted: :lol: Someone actually did that once, right? I read about it somewhere...

Re: How Long Does It Take To Get Good?

For the sake of the noobs who feel it's a long way to the top... Unlike most games I find, there is no "top" in bzflag. Sure, you might be able to get the highest score quickly, but usually there is someone who can do it faster than you(and I don't mean cheaters) Getting into the end of my first ye...

Not to mention there's a new low gravity flag. :) Is that a bad flag or a good flag? It seems like staying in the air longer would give people more time to gather under me and wait for me to land, rather than help me get away or give me an advantage. Hmm..thats a very good question. I guess it woul...

Changing what teams are allowed might fix the problem.

OK. I have an alternative. What if we have a rico flag. Instead of shooting you get the flag and when someones near you, you press fire and it rebounds their shots back at them. That'd be more like a reflector. Though, it would be pretty funny if someone tries to shoot you, you reflect the shot, an...

The (+) sign means that player is registered.
the (-) sign means the callsign is registered, but password is incorrect
(or that player is having trouble with global registration)
the (@) sign means that player is a server administrator.

Note: there is no shield,ST, or CL properties. get him with a SW or GM or L, or just corner him.

Also note: they are all slight adjustments, not everything piled on.
