Football Map ideas

Post by Mudsquisher » Sun Oct 04, 2009 10:59 pm

This came from louman's football map wich is amazing. But i have an idea to have another version of that. Defiently keep that map up though. Anyway, unstead of having the whole colosieum and seats and things like that, just make a huge football feild and have the touchdown zone the bases. You could make more of those statue tanks scattered and like a little defense thing in the endzone. IT would be awseome, i think. The other idea is a little more advanced and may not be possible, yet, but it would be similar to the huge football idea but have a like an actual score to it as in football. I was thinking as in football, you score 6 points for a touchdown, when somebody ctf, it will kill everybody but only count for the team who scored. And to get the 6 points, have the flag spawn right above the team who capped so it will land on someones tank and they will cap automatically. IT would do this 6 times and then spawn back to the opposite side's team. Also the opposite team will not go into negative score. For the field goal, it could just consist of a post wich the player must jump through and will land on a seperate base to ctf. I think this would be amazing!!!! Well, if anyone can do this, please do so, it will be so much fun. Thanks.

not sure why this is under fansites and not map discussions.

Anyway I lik the idea. Sorry, but the lack of my intelligence limits me to helping out only in the "playing" portion :D

Keep us updated on your idea. Good

nice job ahs! looking great

you know with 3.0 you could have a plugin that kept a live time score on a score board :D

maybe you might like to look into that. it would definitely add alot of awesomeness to the map :)

That's american football, did you mean that or soccer?

American/rugby is harder to do, unless you merged thief and steamroller and some random principle for tackle success rate.

Football would probably have to wait for moveable physics.

its American Football, the plan of action is short range shots. and the ball will be OO flag. I plan to have a concept test up soon, to show the full plan of action. But it will bz style of Football. BZFootball will vary but it will be just as hard-nosed and in your face action as the real thing.

i think this idea opens up a whole new style to bzflag with the need for some serious team-play!
i started a while ago a thread in the "Enhancements" section ::: pass team-flag to player
which is basically about the REAL football (that you guys call soccer ;-) ) and using a flag as ball that you could pass to a mate to make the run or keep passing it to your mates towards the goal! but watch for your opponents defense!
FiringSquad is working on a plugin to make it work and i guess could be used to a fabulous new style, tactics, game, teamwork and map-making experience to the bzflag players!
keep it going ::: this is what i would love to see in bzflag!

There is a concept test on bzbattleground:5900

Give it a try :)

beware its still needs work, just testing the settings, ideas and concept.
