Midpoint Operations - a Red versus Green CTF

Post by Spectre » Tue Mar 16, 2010 10:44 pm

First of all, I would like to thank the players and mrapple for putting up with my many test versions of this map. mrapple's nearly constant updating allowed my map to reach its best, and many players reported and commented on things I could improve. The result, you ask? It's ready! Midpoint Operations 1.0 is up now at bzbureau.com:5191. The goal is to successfully use the middle fortress to prevent and operate flag capturing. Also, the boxes and pyramids arrayed around the center allow for enough cover for a defensive screen of tanks. Thank you, and enjoy!

Just so the note is larger:

If you could post the actual map file here as an attachment, that would be best. The "save world" stuff in BZFlag doesn't save the raw map file from the server. It recreates the BZW format based on the binary blob that gets sent to the client, so stuff like comments and other various things will not match up to the original file. And some things get excluded completely, like zones.

the center... is impossible. Kinda. I did it twice, but i got it about 15% of the time.
either:
Shrink the upper platform,
Only make the bottom kill you, or
Make none of it kill you, and merely cause you to bounce to a corner.

Centre is too easy. Six jumps from outside.. Either make it impossible when there are less than five people, or remove geno (or both, put something like multiple CL/T flags up there).

The map is good, but there may not be enough deflectors or reasons to move around.

If you mean his radar background...that's grass.

If you mean th actual objects, that's his radar setting. It's "Fast Sorted", meaning that if an object is white, you are on the same level, if it is green, you can jump up on it, if it is purple, it is to high to jump up on.

Actually-- its Fast, not Fast Sorted
Fast (not Enhanced) is the best radar style... it shows the most layers and it color-codes them based on relative height to you.

And, given standard Gravity/JumpVelocity, anything Green can be jumped up to, whereas anything blue can't.
