It looks like something Spazzy McGee or A Delusion might have made. Did you accidently join a test server?

Whoever did it, I can't wait to play. It looks like fun.

Also, Paper Foil, just because the smileys are there there, doesn't mean you have to use ALL of them!

Oh! I remember playing on that map a few days ago. It had jump pads from the ships to the island and from the island to the enemy's ships. It reminded me of the Normandy map. I can't remember the name of the server either. :(

Not me: *Points at the american flag*

It looks to me like one of anomaly's, he's done those same palm trees before, and it has the same sort of polished look as his volcano map.

In any case it looks pretty amazing. Where did you find it, A Polar Foil? *cough cough*

I think I know what map your talking about. I was on that map a few times "briefly". From my "short" experiences with that map it has to be one of the coolest ones yet. To say that I like that map is an understatement, however it seems that the feeling is not mutual. Apparently, I must have offended that map somehow. Forget about artificial intelligence, the map maker must have stumbled upon artificial emotion. Every single time i signed on i get to play all of 3 seconds and then my computer freezes which results in the need to reboot. The worst part yet, it seems to lash out only at me. If any1 else manages to find and play on that great map, please tell it that I'm sorry for what ever I did to upset it. If any1 acquires that same problem, please let me know. I don't like to be that kind of special. Its difficult to admire at a distance. I hope to one day be able to fully experience that coolness that is known by some as Midway. Maybe I like that map too much, it is an abusive relationship, perhaps I should join BZ anonymous.

I didn't make it, but i know who did. I'm not saying. It uses my skydome.
It's now playing at bzflag3.norang.ca 5189

Seems like there might be a couple small bugs still need worked out, but they are the kind of bugs that don't show up until you get a few players on it, anyway.
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.

As some of you have probably figured out, this was an April Fools joke and I made the map. Discussion on the map is here.
