Yet Another Flag Suggestion: Gravity Control

Post by Palomides » Fri Jun 01, 2007 2:26 pm

Okay, since so many other people come up with new flag ideas, I want to also.

My idea: this flag, Gravity Control, lets you control how fast you fall in mid-jump. While in the air you can hold down the jump key and it will make you drop more quickly.

Any thoughts?

That would be fun to use :)


Yeh, people are coming with all sorts of flags, but how many of them have you seen been chosen for actual development?

The more I think about this flag idea, the more I like it. The strategic possibilities are endless. Imagine jumping to dodge, and then falling straight down again to return fire. Or, dodge that pesky Wings guy. Also, drop off a platform with less risk.

I like it. Simple, not too overpowered, but it would open up a lot of new possibilities. Almost like a reverse WG.

and bzflag is mostly based on the human feeling, to change the gravity would be destruct the sensitivness.

I think this would affect the gameplay in a slightly negative manner... and, while it *seems* relatively simple, I'm going to have to say it could be too powerful. What if you had a player just dropping and jumping really really fast all over the place? Do you have any idea how impossible that would be to hit? Worse than shooting at an 800 lag person ;)

Otherwise, I'm inclined to believe with sussi, but it's an ok idea.

Perhaps it would have a "shot limit".
Every time you dive it wastes a shot, shooting does too, as normal/
The Pen is Mightier Than the Sword.

Okay, you get a Bic, the orc gets a long sword.

He cuts the Bic in half.

Then he cuts you in half.

Oops, I meant quarters.

its uses are limited what if your drop in someones face to shoot them while someone lasers you from behind? and you might get glitched when you jump off REALY high spots your tank sinks in the ground. what if you sunk and landed nowhere? just flying slow and fast shhoting a llil bit for all eternity.

....do you even know how this game works? There's no way to know if it would actually glitch the game until you try it.

Besides, if someone lasers you in the back, there's not much you can do about it, flag or no flag.
