You will spawn on your base when you join, then in your spawn zone when you die. There is an option somewhere to turn that off...

A circle has 360 degrees... if you want a circle, you have to have weapons rotated beyond 113 degrees :)

Why do you use images for different transparency levels? The images seem to have no pattern to them - you could make them just 1x1 pixel. Or better yet, don't use textures at all and just use the diffuse thing with transparency.

If your image is textured, then just use one non-transparent texture and adjust transparency for the different materials.

Note that I did all this without starting a server to look at it, so not all of it may be correct...

trepan did this with a clock on a map download his map and see
how he did it....

s/b something like

rotation 1 degree
delay 1

rotation 2
delay 1

you'l have to do it how ever
smooth you want 360 times
for 360 degrees....

or break it into 60 peieces
of 6 degrees each...

Idunno about all that, but i loaded the map, and was getting AMAZING FPS numbers. Over 300 FPS on my intel mac, I usually get 100 to 140. So my textures really do work.

Try a sphere in the laser zone. it might work.
