There is a search function in the BZFlag Server List. Press / and type ice. Then press the return key.

It's a random map with some modified BZDB variables. The shot speed and slide amount seem a little excessive, but still playable. Can't really determine how much fun it would be, since I was the only one on at the time.

K I was on there, and like blast said, I couldnt really tell whether or not it would be fun to play on, since i was the only 1 on at the time.
I do like the aspects of the map though. Where is the server hosted by the way?

If 1 could get control of the ice, they could kick some serious...! Especially at the speed the bullets are set at :)

The server is located in Sweden. :roll:

There is another server that is up occassionally during the American evenings, "Speed Skate by Tedius," which has similar settings concerning friction, but is not a random map.

I played there a couple of times, it's lots of fun!

My main strategy was to just keep moving as fast as I's also not a bad idea to jump, since you'll most likely either land behind an obstacle or so far away that the person who you are running away from can't turn fast enough.

I was just on it then and my opinion of the map has changed a little. For instance, the reload time for the bullets is a little fast, its as if you've always got machine gone or FF I think the other one is. There's also not many places to go, you should extend it, making the floors in the sky etc., or even make it a CTF. :)

It IS fun though I enjoyed it, but it wasn't to long before i changed servers.
