This isn't quite BZ related, but I thought it was cool :)

That tank reminds me of a forwarded email I got one time; "balloon fashion show". Dresses made out of balloons. They were quite pretty, actually. Anyway, I would really hate to have a tank like that in the middle of a bunch of nice, sturdy metal ones that are shooting at me.... ;)

So THAT'S what my tank looks like when I run over the "BOUNCY" flag in BZ!

If you scroll through the gallery, you'll see that it didn't last long.

Come to think of it, I don't think that tank would last outside at all -- and if it DID it would blow away at the first gust of wind :shock:

Actually, that's what the developers are going for with the new Low Gravity flag. ;-)

you know it would be cool to have a flag that you could use to drive on water or even go under

Certainly would be one heck of a carnival game!
Almighty and most merciful Father, we humbly beseech Thee, of Thy great goodness, to restrain these immoderate rains with which we have had to contend. Grant us fair weather for Battle. Graciously hearken to us as soldiers who call upon Thee that, armed with Thy power, we may advance from victory to victory, and crush the oppression and wickedness of our enemies and establish Thy justice among men and nations. -George S Patton

Awesome tank, but I think that someone must have too much time (and balloons) on their hands.

P.S. Wouldn't this be better off in the Screenshots & Artwork section?

Ummmm but the only problem is what if your server doesn't have water... and how far would it go down and what could you find in there and what would happen if you dropped that flag?
