Is there a server setting for what happens when you explode?

On vipers I always seem to explode upwards wereas I go into the ground on Planet Mofo

Thanks

You always go upwards in a parabola unless you hit a teleporter or wall.

The height of the parabola is determined by _explodeTime. On most of the Planet MoFo servers, _explodeTime is 0. Thus, there's no "hang time" in the air, and you just stop exactly where you died.

Physics drivers can also affect the inital velocity of the tank fragments in whatever direction, but they also affect gameplay, so you don't want to do that. ;)
