in bzedit? that function doesn't even work.

in the bzw groups define a group of objects and you can do

Code: Select all

group <name>
end
to duplicate it.

for example:

Code: Select all

define thingy
box
position 0 0 0
size 10 10 15
rotation 0
end

box
position 0 0 0
size 15 15 5
rotation 0
end
enddef

group thingy
end

group thingy
shift 50 0 0
end

group thingy
shift -50 0 0
end

group thingy
shift 0 -50 0
end

group thingy
shift 0 50 0
end

you know, if you actually read the http://www.bzflag.org/wiki/MapMaking you can learn alot.

I also recomend that you tare appart other people's maps to see how they were made.

It will be alot more rewarding than posting hedre, and then waiting half a day for a reply.

you know you can rotate in all 3 directions with the 'spin' function.
