2.2 will have a low gravity flag that lets you jump higher, and fall slower.

Ahhh. Maybe a high gravity flag would be good. It would make good players almost impossible to kill unless they were caught in cross fire.

You could turn the Low Gravity flag in a high gravity flag just by changing the _lgGravity constant of your server. The _lgGravity constant is the gravity of the Low Gravity Flag

JudaS (JS) ?

I think this idea might be frowned upon... Your'e often surrounded by teammates in a team game. If somebody picked up this flag and started killing everyone around him, but we can't kill him back, he is basically an invincible tank.

To put it mildly.

What if you wanted a LG (Low Grav) as well as a HG(High Grav) flag on your server...

Then I think you would make it a bad flag called "Heavy"

this can be demonstrated in current servers by modifying variables.

As to the flag, all you would do is add those options into the flags parameters *I think*

Though I'm not entirely familiar with the flags coding...

this isnt a joke guys, read about other flags that have been suggested before you post here. BZFlag is not some silly little kids game with tails and dirt hugging. get real...

Silly kids game? Two words for you: jumping tanks.

Anyway, some of the ideas the kids come up with are good, or may lead to good things. Let them yammer on- you don't have to listen.

Geez, I was just joking around with those names. And to the guy above me: Get offa my head! Uh, I mean, keep in mind that we younger players don't have to listen to you older players either, so stop acting like what we say doesn't mean anything just because we happen to be a little below the typical BZFragger's age. It's offensive. I'm not sure if I'm understanding you right or not, but I'm just being clear that you shouldn't be talking like that.

Admittedly, the tail idea was a stupid one. I wouldn't like to have kangaroo tails stuck on tanks in BZFlag, and I really don't know who would.

I think that people should be able to discuss things the way they wish and make up funny names for flags. Its fun and lighthearted. There is nothing wrong with it. OK so maybe a few KB somewhere get eaten by that post but thatas OK with me. I'll give a few KB to someone if they need it because someone else has enjoyed writing a funny post.

I am officially a figment of everyone's imagination.

Hey, cool it. He's been here longer than you, and he's more experienced. And he's right.

This isn't a place for idiotic ideas that aren't even half thought through. And it's not a matter about kbs....(that's just stupid), it's a matter of common sense. I could make hundreds of garbage posts, each one of them dumb, but even though one of them might be good, they're virtually useless. If you want to talk about unintelligent ideas, then you should either tell about via private message if it is so important, or tell them another way.

As for flags...

Low Gravity and High Gravity flags are very good ideas, and they could be used on all maps, which all flags should be able to do.

A flag to kill your teammates? That's just cruel.

High jump, Fast Fall: Meh, it's okay, but I wouldn't use it much.

High/Low Gravity is in 2.1 already. Is there really any need for further discussion..?
