search option

Post by Sharpshooter » Sat Nov 19, 2005 9:53 pm

When you click on find server, in the upper right hand corner there could be 2 search options. The first one, you would type in a server, and as you type, the related searches come up on the server list. The second searh option could search for players, and as yo type, the related searches come up, and it shows the servers with the player you type in. So this way, if your trying to find someone, you wouldn't have to go down the server list just to find someone.

There is already a function to search for a server (in 2.0.5).

A Player search shouldn't be hard... they just would have to re-configure the tracker a little.

Why does player search have to be in the game?

There's a perfectly good player list right now at
http://stats.bzflag.org/currentplayers.php

And player search at (it even finds unregistered players!)
http://stats.bzflag.org/playersearch.php

and a really useful RSS feed generator at

It should be in the game because:

1) It's less of a hassal.
2) It saves time
3) You dont' have to go to your browser, search it, then go back to bzflag.
4) It would be very quick and would take seconds for you to find that person, then go to the server.

well, if you do, also include an exclude command,
for example, displaying all servers, that Mr_Molez is not on.

But, yes would be a great feature, but a luxury one, since it can be done differently.
