How do you like this idea? Black Peter Flag

Post by Skeeve » Wed Jun 28, 2006 9:58 am

A Black Peter flag is a really bad flag, but maybe fun to have nevertheless.

It's a flag you can't dropp. It's even not timed. You have to either die or pass it on to someone else in order to get rid of it.

While you're Black Peter you are as fast as a Thief.

You can't be shot except by Super Bullet or Shockwave like a Phantom Zoned tank.

You shoot llike a thief. This passes the flag to the shot tank.

lol i love the idea! :idea: being able to deprive someone of a power flag and lend him the black peter would be extra cool! even more sinister than thief. :twisted:

Yeah, I think that's a nice idea. I'm not entirely sure it keep BZ a simple game, but it's noneheless a good idea, IMO.

@ THIRST VERSION WONT ABLE TO MAKE THAT FLAG.
I tried to make server on BZFLAG 1.10.8 with map and config of BZFLAG 2.0.8 and what i saw a lot of problems. There were everywhere mistakes and it didnt runned.....

well, it could be coded into 2.2, which would solve the issue of it not working. but it doesnt neeeeeed to be BW Comp. with other BZs, so some things may work, some may not. but i dont know if i like the flag, though i suppose i'd get it just to piss off the other team, hand it off to one of them when they spawn, reload, take out the base, steal the flag and pray i get away before the other guy realizes what happened:)

1.10.x is not compatable with 2.0.x by design. They use difrent network protcols.

In the same line 2.1.x is not compatable with 2.0.x.

this flag has no counter, and is just a munchkin flag, it does nothing much to add to the game, just make people go "hehhhehhheh.. I P0WNZ0RD J00" and that is not what bzflag is about.

I gotta agree with Jeff...

This flag like all flags will break protocal.

Meaning it will have to be implemented in 2.1


I think it would be cooler if theif could have a server setting where that if somebody steals a flag that the other person gets the flag.


You could steal GM then somebody steal it back.

Like tag.

This would also be a good gameplay style.

Everybody but one person has a flag, you can pass your flag to the person... anybody with this flag does not make points and anybody without the flag makes points.

So basically rabbit... :-P
