(TS) TEAM SAFE flag

Post by OU812 » Tue Mar 04, 2008 8:43 pm

I would love to see a flag that would only kill tanks that are not on your team. The shots should be standard cannon shots. I would have loved this flag back in BOXYWAR or even now in Castle War Laser and GM sniping.

What other effect would that flag have? Just normal shots that only kill enemies? How about just not shooting your teammates? I think that'd be a whole lot easier.

Create complete thoughts tony, complete thoughts. Sentences start with a capital letter and end with a period. Keep on trying, you'll get it.

You mean like this? (Search for Friendly Fire)

In theory, this should be quite easy to develop, and I think I even saw a patch that added this flag, but it never got integrated.

(Gosh, now I think I might have to develop it now!)

I don't have any problems not killing my team-mates. But like I said I would like to be able to shoot thru my team-mates. Especially in a close quarters base. Idealy the flag would be zoned so it would only respawn in the base.

An option has been added to 2.99 to disable friendly fire completely. I don't think a flag was added for that ability.
Optimism is just a milder alternative to denial.
