you can add custom flags using plug-ins, so they can name a flag whatever they want.

They write code in a plugin that defines a flag named that. My guess is they are trying to use world weapons to fake the other 2 shots. It will have lots of problems.

It actually works surprisingly well, though there is a little lag between the main shot and the WW shots. Makes me interested in what other flags we can make..

They have an ASS-CANON flag too that shoots from the rear of the tank.
Also holding your team-flag gives you GENO power.

First time I joined, i thought there was somebody cheating. :-)

Like how I just shot myself.. :|

I haven't checked this out but I doubt you get points for killing people with the world weapon.
Lag makes me miss all of the good stuff.
And random bans..........

Lol me too. It's sorta like what mdskpr did with flags on his lavender town hix he did stuff like "Bedrill" (double shots). It really cool in my opinion.

Yes, you do get credit for the kills made with the extra shots provided by the world weapon. You get credit and a scored point for each kill made with your ass's cannon, the extra two shots of the triple barrel, and all the other shots fired from the Death Blossom. It might tell the kiled player he was hit by the world weapon, but the server scores and credits the kill like all other kills.

Aim carefully and make those shots count!

You can not kill yourself with the extra bullets from the Triple Barrel either. Only your enemies!

Of course, it was buggy at first and you could hit yourself as well as team mates with the extra shots. Not no mo'! Got it fixed and the extra flags are a welcome addition to the server. We have some extra goodies on the backburner that will, again, be game changers. Stay tuned.

you got 1 shot only, so you had to make it count, it kicked the person it hit off the server, almost impossible to hit people with one shot at mofo though, lag act funny there compared to other servers it seems like, and the flag was impossible to find, so it was fairly balanced.

There was one server i found once, (though i haven't seen it since) that had no normal flags but a whole bunch of custom ones. Didn't realize it was possible to make new ones with plugins. :D

Was it Lavender Town, the Pokemon-themed version of HIX?

The plugins were not released to the public. You will have to write your own.

I'm hoping we have the fifty point flag with a one-shot-limit soon.

And i've been lobbying for this one for awhile... Useless rampage.
After four kills with the useless flag, every new kill counts five points.
After nine kills with the useless flag, every new kill counts ten points.
Take a look at my Defender game mode concept.

Thinking is not an automatic process. A man can choose to think or to let his mind stagnate, or he can choose actively to turn against his intelligence, to evade his knowledge, to subvert his reason. If he refuses to think, he courts disaster: he cannot with impunity reject his means of perceiving reality.

The kicker flag sounds fantastic. Add it everywhere.
