PTF (Plant The Flag)

Post by trepan » Sat Dec 11, 2010 5:16 pm

PTF (Plant The Flag) is a new game mode where you try to capture the enemy
team bases by planting one of your flags on their base. The initial PTF map that
ahs3 and I have created has three teams.

The PTF map is currently running on bzbattleground.com:5585, courtesy of ahs3.

Here are the extra features available on the PTF map:
- your team flags make you go faster
- enemy team flags make you go slower
- the black hexagons are horizontal teleporters tunnels back to your base
- all players in a team's zone are teleporter home when that team's base is captured.
- bonus points are awarded for base captures
- each team gets two team flags


Map contributions

trepan:
- walls
- corner bases and ledges
- hexagonal teleporters

ahs3:
- the central structure
- gold trimmed pyramids


PTF Plugin and BZFS patches by trepan.


P.S. Credit goes to Dutchrai and his SandBlaster2 map for the gold trim idea.

P.P.S. The map license is public domain. The plugin files are not released yet.

Truly amazing map. Great job both ahs3 and trepan.
Soon we will be facing bots that we can't beat...

So it's for BZFlag 3, I suppose!?
Anyways, I like that Idea and that in fact some people are realizing it. Amazing job, keep it on!

The map and associated plugin/patch are designed for BZFlag 2.0

Nice job on the map, I myself find the concept to be interesting. Unfortunately I wasn't able to play with many yet, but I got a few people to join me and we had some fun.

I like the ideas and those were very fun.

(By the way trepan, I remember there was a veldrv test you had up for awhile, was that using a modified bzfs? I thought that was pretty neat.)

The veldrv plugin does not require a modified bzfs, but it will not work
on windows machines because of linking issues. The team flag speed
changes are based on the same principal, they just use a different trigger.
The flag based speed change technique could also be used to setup
different penalties and bonuses for any flag; you could have slow GMs,
fast JM, etc... You could also vary the _radarLimit variable per-player, and
possibly several other properties (although some you can't change per-
player because of gameplay consistency issues).
