Death From Above !

Post by RevSpaminator » Wed Aug 12, 2009 5:31 am

Does anyone know if is possible to combine the abilities of flags?

I have this crazy idea of a world that combines Wings with Steamroller and disables the cannon, for everyone. I imagine a world of about 200x200, making a column like world with lots of ledges going up and up...

In 3.0 there is some ability for this with a plug-in (combining flags) but not in the combination you specify. This also would not be any fun as running into someone if you both had flags would/should case you both to die. No fun in that...

SR v SR doesn't kill you both, do you mean you both die in 3 or with WG?

Rev it would be too much of a literally upper hand map, the higher person wins. Unless ledges sudennly disappeared, I don't know what's happening with interacting physics.

SR vs SR works the same way as SW vs SW.
The player that is moving away from the other will survive,

RevSpaminator this is a crazy idea that just might work, if done properly. I'm thinking a very small world size, maybe 50. Of course you gotta figure out a way to combine the flags. It just might be possible in 3.0.
Take a look at my Defender game mode concept.

Thinking is not an automatic process. A man can choose to think or to let his mind stagnate, or he can choose actively to turn against his intelligence, to evade his knowledge, to subvert his reason. If he refuses to think, he courts disaster: he cannot with impunity reject his means of perceiving reality.

A server-side plugin could do SR collision detection.

But 3.0 will not allow a WG/SR flag combination, if I understand the implementation of the flag/shot type changes...
So if you are saying that you could write a plugin to simulate an SR flag, then it would be doable but not in the way proposed.
