New Depth

Post by TheFish » Tue Dec 01, 2015 6:01 am

Wouldn't it make sense to have a feature to be able to use the mouse to look up and down along with aiming? I think I remember it being mentioned before a long time ago but it was dismissed. This is one of the things that I find frustrating in this game, the inability to even look up or down when playing on maps that have multi levels. Most maps are designed around bzflag not having this feature, but having this ability would give map makers much more room. I know that this games engine is also the big limiting factor on this as well. Any other thoughts?

This isn't a limitation but in fact a design decision. The game is designed to be simple, and adding the ability for the tank to tilt on uneven surfaces or to rotate/tilt the turret would make it much more complicated.
