That would make it way too complex. Like win xp said we have radar for things like that. Plus it would be confusing to see a mirror at the top of your screen that also blocks your view of things upward. If you're going to add this, you should add side mirrors and back-up lights too. Ummmmm.............................no.

And a bbeping sound when driving backwards and maybe a park radar to so that you don't hit walls ;-)

Just kidding...

BZ already is "too" complex -- this is a typical player using radar and 3d at the same time :D

Oh my word! I am cracking up and can't stop laughing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Btw I use radar for everything... but when I need to shoot, I use 3D.
Simply, you don't end up like that guy if you learn to trust 3D...
Radar is good for *everything* except ST's.
(and if you play a map enough... you get that "hair on your neck feeling when an ST is about to getcha... or you get teamtalk like on Lasermania...)

Good suggestion though... I think it would be better like racing games though to hit a key and see what's behind you... very helpful...

I mean in a real tank you can see behind you... this would change ST tactics a whole lot... experianced players that get ST can slaughter n00bs... Go onto a server and get slaughtered by an ST... feels like the person is cheating... I think a "look behind" key would be easy to use, and good for people starting out... this would be a good idea for a protocol update (like 2.2)

And bzflag can't always stay the same, then people will get bored and bzflag will fade into nothingness... we need some updates... like 2.0.0's WG flag and all that...
