Wings HELP

Post by nzalvin » Thu Feb 10, 2005 12:50 pm

Hi guys.
Its a lot of time I have a server on the BZFlag public list, but mine doesn't have a thing I want. :( Why on my server when I have wings I cant jump multiple times? Is there a command to allow it?

PLEASE ANSWER!!!

Thanx,
nzalvin

On the bzfs command line or in your .conf file

Code: Select all

-set  _wingsJumpCount  3
will get you 3 extra jumps. This can also adjusted in-game with the "/set" server command by someone with the correct permissions.

*correction bryjen "it is 3 jumps TOTAL not extra so if u did zero wings would be a no jumping flag basicly."*

or in game if your an admin with setvar permission do /set _wingsJumpCount #

The average player (me) likes wing jump counts to be around 5-10 jumps.

That seems far too many for me, unless you're playing a WAY too vertical map. 3 seems like a good number.
And then, as we aimed at each other, in the moment of truth, I knew...

that someone had stolen my wallet.

Hum...
IMHO, Wings with more than 1 jump is totally annoying. You already have the ability to drive while in air, which is a *huge* advantage. Why would you power the flag up a level by adding flaps?
Hepcat became a lot less interesting when the number of flaps increased :cry:

I agree totally, especially when combined with vertical component shots.

Wings should just be 1 jump, unless the world is a wings world (like ocean) where everyone can get a wings flag with out much effort

Wings vs GM

Post by tadd » Thu Feb 17, 2005 6:17 am

Wings isn't all that powerful if there are GM flags around.
On my server you can jump 100 times before having to land. I put a limit on the number of shots a wings user gets before the flag goes away. You can get up to about 1800 high before you lose it. It's nice to drop down behind somebody and shoot them if they aren't paying attention. GM kills wings though. The WG flag is rare. GMs in my game are about 25x more common than Wings.
