2 tanks- now double the fun! check this out! :)

Post by Mudsquisher »

With the idea from Grumpy Smurf and help from temporal distraction and many other fans of two tanks, soon will be 4 TANKS!!!! I will be generating the map with help from the pros. This map will be a copy of 2 tanks but with 2 extra tanks and more features and flags to get around! It will be better than ever. There will be lasers-there will be capture the flag and there will be chaos! This should be the best sequal map that has ever been made!

I will try to put up 2 maps of wich have 3 tanks and 4 tanks as a test to see wich one gets more popular. Here you can tell everyone what you would like to see and your opinion on this creation. Please write back! I estimate it taking a couple of weeks for it to be generated and up due to the amount of tests and adjusments that will need to be played in. If you want to play on this map and think it will be lots of fun, please tell us!!! Also, if you would like to help with the creation or any cool ideas that you think should be in it, please tell! I should have screenshots up in a while to see a preview. Look out on the forums and bzflag to get more information on this new creation!

Why post when you don't even have it started? I think you need a blog.

Hum. What are you planning to do concerning cannons? It's not like you want to only be able to get to one teams tank from yours as I'm sure you've thought of.

hmm, wreckage has a very good point. lets say i want to get to a certain teams base. how am i going to do this with only one cannon. i think you might have to perfect this idea a little bit more mud.

Thats easy-- as I am the brain child behind the map I have all of the answers.
Since we can't make a moving turret, we will install bouncy pads to choose to jump to the other tanks.

I know a lot of you like to hate on Muddy but please give the dude a chance! This can be a great map which all of you will likely play. You have my full support Muddy -- lets all band together and make something sweet.

Peace!

I guess we could do multiple turrets also -- maybe that'll be better for the sake os sniping jumpers out of the barrels.

I will be a doubter here... I don't think the map will scale well at all. You will have your work cut out for you and I think you will be disappointed with the results.

Would it be scaled by 2 for both the length and the width? Or just the width? Are the tanks going to be two across? It would probably be good to draw us an arial view so that we can know what your talking about.

The tanks will be the same thing as scale but will be replaced to side around the place where the gm towers are. I will move the gm towers inbetween each tank. I am also thinking of a high speed pad across the map as it is now but would connect to each tank. If i can get some sort of drawing or anyting, i will do my best and post it.

Please, all i ask of you is to believe that i can do it. Iv learned much and done my research. I also have help from many people who know a lot. I do have other resources too.

Keep checking the forums and this topic to get more information on this creation! Thanks for the support! :D

Why don't you post some screen shots of the "map" that might work.

Sure anyone could put it together, there is nothing terribly complicated with that map. It will be mostly making some groups (if they are not already there) and positioning and rotating them. The real trick will be to make it playable... GOOD LUCK, you are going to need it.

Well i do not only need to rotate it, but first need to double check everything on the tank, to make sure im rotating the tank boxes but also need to change things so tht the tanks can fit there. Like jeovano said, i need to make it playable. And this does take time though.

People....
A few of you know I am not a fan of Mudsquisher
But give him a try

1) If he could do this map, then it will be an enrichment for the BZ community
2) If he couldnt do it, at least we have a new idea of map and maybe someone else will try to do it :book: .

And do not forget that he is freely contributing (I love FREE :) ... and other expensive stuff btw.... :oops: )

Another problem is that with more tanks nothing on the upper sides of base will be at all safe.

And make the rolling platform still useful for more than the nearest tank clockwise. And make the GM tower not too near, but still jumponable. But yeah, next time please bite, chew, swallow, then post (as Bambino said).

almost done with the first tank??? Aren't you saying that the map the map will be asymmetrical? That would mean that you flip them and reverse the positions, which would take five sec. In other words, why would only one tank be done at a time?
