i think i fig'rd this out...whats happening
not how to fix it...

i did not see anything similar here so
i'll throw it out in the open.

after editing a map and the having it
put on a server...we kept seeing these
little pyramids at the bottom of the HUD....

i finally fig'r what it was bzflag was
creating a shadow of pyrs already on the map
so which ever one your near it "reflects"
on to the ground near you..

you can see it in this example where the
real pyr's are in the small building...
but then reflected on to the ground
in front of you...look at the JPG

it changes dependign on which pyr your near...
be it 1 pyr or more....

has this been addressed before or something new..

i kno!!!

thats could be pyramids or anything at a below the map (a negative Z scale)

the ground isn't filled in the z buffer so yes anything below Z0 will show thru. It's in the map, the map needs to be fixed.
