### Does anybody know....

The highest height a box can be, and still can shoot tanks on it. My guestimate is between 1.55-1.65.

Standard _muzzleHeight is 1.57. I would guess that box height >= 1.57 wouldn't work.

Probably. I would try 1.50 first.

Try this (perhaps):

Make building's height 1.0
Set the variable _muzzleHeight to .9

The _muzzleHeight of a tank on the building will then be 1.0 + .9 = 1.9. Since normal _tankHeight = 2.05, a tank on the ground 'should' be hit by tank on building, but not the other way around.

I have not tested this theory.

### Older versions

Many older maps designed for bzflag 1.10 need muzzleHeight raised slightly to operate correctly. 1.59 is enough
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.
