Then you should add at least 1 screenshot. (Server owners don't have the time to open/run all maps that were posted without a screenshot. Secondly not just few people don't know how to open a mapfile)

If the only issue is you just don't know how to make a server:

But be prepared, it's not a simple and fast done task.

Zhero is the only person here that's really helped in this thread :)

So, I hope you do consider what he has presented to you.



Becoming a map maker, is very simple if your willing to learn.
Although, creating a map that attracts a resonable amount of players to on a regular basis is on the other hand, very hard.

As a few map makers, like myself, have found out :)


Do test your own maps though and as you learn more about the structures of maps, perhaps stray away from ibzedit and check out some more complicated programs like Wings 3D and or Blender :)

When I say complicated, I do mean it.

1. You put the map on a server (could be your computer running bzfs)
2. Connect to the server with you BZFlag client
3. Find a nice vantage point (Generally using observer and roam) and hit F5
4. Get the screenshot out of your "Screenshots" folder of your "My BZFlag Files" folder

When you are editing your post:
Slightly above the submit-button is the "Add an Attachment"-button, in order to attach files (for example screenshots)

A not good screenie is still better than no screenie

Yes, he posted it... see the first post in this thread.

By "sponsorin," do you mean hosting?

First off, please try to type more clear. 2nd If you post the map without a license the map is free gain. Anyone can take it and do what they please with it. http://my.bzflag.org/bb/viewtopic.php?t=10575

Probably not, unless you can find it on the server list, seeing as he hasn't said so here.

First of all, no one must host your map. It helps to get your map hosted if it has good quality and is playable. (and also to the hoster's liking -given)
