New flags?

Post by carerra » Sat Mar 05, 2005 6:48 pm

I had an idea for a bad flag and good. One bad flag would be one that slows you down and you cant shoot. But when people, even if they DONT have steamroller, may run you over. Roadkil maybe?? And for the good flag, not sure if this is good or not :roll: , but have shots that zig zag? So when someone trys dodging your shot, they cant cause they get caught in lost in fire. Site admins may change the settings for speed and depth (how many zig zags and how wide the spray is). I dont know about them, just an idea? :?:

huh? :shock:

So this bad flag slows you down, you can't shoot and you can be steamrolled by every tank ?? even if it's a bad flag, you still should be able to do something, rather than being totally powerless. :wink:

The idea of bad flags is to hamper your ability to play well, not completely destroy you. Going slow, not shooting, and being very fragile would be an instant-death, almost too deadly for a bad flag.

How about a "Sitting Duck" flag.

haha ok, then the flag could allow to shoot and you can turn quicker? that would take advantages away while giving you a new ability. makes it fair but still a "bad" flag.

i got an idea for a good flag: how about a Sniper flag?

you have one bullet that goes really far and goes extremely fast but your reload time is much longer, leaving you vulnerable for attacks (reload after one shot)

I took this idea from the Tavern server

so, what do you guys think about this?

This has been thrown around before, and we decided that laser is that "sniper flag". If you want to have a sniper flag, just set the bullet speed of Rapid Fire to something enomously high.

Or there is the posibility that you can take laser and subtract the ricochet.

nah, that's just the downside of laser: a long line that destroys anything on his path but the ricochet makes it risky as teammembers can be killed too. otherwise it would be too powerful

No, because you can also increase load time and remember, you can limit the shots of flags.

Hrm... A bad flag idea... Bullet Magnet

Anything shot in your vicinity has a tendency to arc toward you to some degree. Making shooting you a bit easier while your carry it.

And of course you could also turn it around and make a good flag.

Bullet Repulse...

Anything shot at you has a tendency to arc away if it's not squared up on you real good.

hmmm, the only problem with this is I dont know if they can create an arch shaped pattern for regular shots. It is defying gravity on the game and the only shot to do this is GM. Which is basically the same thing. A repulse is difficult as well. Talk to the creators to see if its possible. This game is simple and I dont know if this would complex the game to the degree that they dont wanna go.

How bout the bad flag would be slow motion, and the good flag's bullets zigzagging won't work I don't think.

I think we need to start replacing some of the old good flags with new good flags. Adding more good flags would make too many good flags.

Nope... bad idea. Sure add more, but don't take any out...

Haha. Well if we dont take any away, wed have to add more bad flags orrrrr the server admins could limit the number of that particular (mainly older ones) so its seems like the new ones overtook the old ones.

How about a *STAR* flag...

Anyone ever play Super Mario Bros. ? Or better yet, Super Mario Kart (for the old school SNES) ??? Remember picking up the Star on Mario Kart?

Flag would give you High Speed, Steamroller, Quick Turn, Agility, Sheild, AND Super Bullets... but only for, like, five seconds... Invincibility, essentially... but for a short time.

Sorry for two in a row, this one just came to me....

Also, with alot of servers adding water and tanks being killed by drowning (or what have you) - How about a Scuba Gear flag, one that'll allow you to "swim" through the water... dynamics could include altered/less gravity... Possibilities could include entire underwater worlds, comeplete with -sat _rainType bubble... and that angular velocity bullet option, so bullets float too...

I'm just FULL of....


...ideas today.

The problem with the first one is, it cant make you invincible. Shield only works for one shot. Second, you cant have more then one "effect" to one flag. That is a hard design.

Second idea......impossible. The water is basically 1 dimentional meaning theres no way to have it "flood" or to drown. Its just a texture added to the land like the grass. That is definatly out of the question

How about flags that alter the jump height?

Good flag: Afterburner -> jumps twice the regular height

Or another funny one: Levitation
Levitation works this way: you don't fall. You just don't. But the levitation device is very sensitive, so whenever you shoot, try to jump by pressing the jump key, or back up, you fall on the floor like before. Of course, if you jump you don't stay in the air like with the Wings flag. Levitation only works when you drive off a cliff or something in the air.

Levitation = Defensive flag? Jump to avoid shots... and then you just hang in the air. I like Afterburner better.
