How about a map where we're all playing on a huge Monopoly board?
...This has been a recording.

Amazing, simply amazing. Awesome job, LouMan. How many other "a" words can I use to thank you for the 'awe-inspiring', 'astonishing' work? :D

I second that idea! complete with houses, hotels, the stackes of money, the chance cards... The little tokens, the player pieces...

The WORKS!

I actually tried making the Monopoly map, but the modeling of the pieces was getting pretty hairy (especially the dog :wink: ). Also, I couldn't find a good image of the board and the whole thing was looking pretty stinky when I gave up. Perhaps I will retry the map sometime in the future...

I had a very very very quick tinker with the idea of a Monopoly board myself earlier... I tried to have one meshbox covering the whole floor and then letters which are about 0.0000001 units taller than the base...
I couldn't drive over them.
I tried increasing the bump height thing with /se from 0.33 to thinks like 50 and you still couldn't just drive over them...
If you kept pushing into them long enough, the tank jumped up on its own... But that would suck if it was all over the map.
So, the other opton would be to use a Modeller and I am still a beginner with Wings3D so I'm out.

Back to the BZ Bowl:
I played it today and it rocks. Keep it up, LouMan. :)

Yes, I've noticed this inability too. BZFlag doesn't seem to do this properly by design -- it's quite quirky. I've tried a number of different things, and for some very small objects at 0.2 units high or below, the tanks run up them, but other objects that are wider, tanks stick to them in the "sealed" mode.

I completely gave up with doing this for wide objects, like roadways, ramps, etc. I only do this for a few small objects (where a tank is wider than the object).

I found out, the bump thing works only with boxes, not mesh objects or meshboxes, etc.
But, If I make the drivethrough, it doesnt matter anyway. :)

This map is AWESOME!!!!!!!
I played it with my sister (Rabbit Chase) and it gets really crazy, especially with ST. I just LOVE making field goals!!!!

Yes, listen to CannonBallGuy. Just make the letters drivethrough and that solves all of your problems.
