New flag: Backwards (BW)?

Post by L4m3r » Sat Apr 22, 2006 5:20 am

just a random idea for a slightly goofy flag... when you hold it, your tank appears to be facing the other direction.

It could have some tactical uses, especially on crowded servers.

Interesting. Would it be affected by seer? I think it should be.

I never make stupid mistakes. Only very, very clever ones.
It is not the fall that kills you. It's the sudden stop at the end.
Always remember you are unique. Just like everybody else.

What would it look like when you shoot? Would tank rounds be issuing from the tank's hindparts? Or would shots also apppear to be reversed as well? It would be kind of similar to invisible bullet.

No, it would appear to shoot from the rear. It would be like CL in that shooting gives you away.

There billions of flags if you look, like there's even one for driving up slanted walls! I think it is a really good idea though. How can you create flags for a server?

Here are some of the flags:

Long Reload (LR)


Reloading weapon takes twice as long.
Antagonize(AN)
This bad flag causes your tank to automatically send out mild insults and taunts to opposing players. Especially the good ones by name.
French Fries (FF)

(Goofy) Other tanks are attracted to the french fry and will turn to it if they are facing it within 90 digrees.It automatically moves toward it. Other tanks can still turn around (slowly) until it gets out of the magical 90 digrees.
CoW launcher (CW)
(Goofy) Launches a cow along a parabolic trajectory.
Vegas Mode (VM)
-
(Goofy) A giant neon sign points down at your tank with a bright yellow arrow, attracting attention from everybody, reading "[callsign] is right here."
HoVer (HV)
-
Tank hovers one tank-heighth above the ground. Jumper fodder.
Fly Swatter (FS)
-
Your tank is equipped with a gigantic fly swatter, which falls down when you fire. Swat tanks, bullets, GM's, etc
Delayed Shot (DS)
-
Shots wait some prescribed amount of time (2s?) between clicking and actually firing.
Fighting for peace is like screwing for virginity.
-George Carlin

If you can't beat them, arrange to have them beaten.
-George Carlin

Nobody goes there anymore. It's too crowded.

Better a broken promise than none at all.

Man...how dumb do you take us for?

EDITED DUE TO NEW FEELING MODEand some jeff influence: You probably just thought that becuase you saw that as a suggested plugin in one of the various topics....

those are just sugested flags from the wiki. they do not exist. you can only add flags by modifying the game code on both the server and all the clients

'Tis a good idea for a flag , even though im not a big fan on 'bad flags'. Perhaps call it something different , because noobs may think Backwards would be driving your tank in backwards , like the 'Reverse' flag.

or, how about the tank simply being round... no front or back, period?
