Is this possible

Is it possible to make a plugin that lets you drive on walls, as in you can drive up an arc and drive on a flat wall?

no, a plugin can not change how tanks move. Movement is handled by the client. plugins affect the server.

tanks in bzflag will allways be flat to the ground, and not tilt up.

o thanks anyway. Im tring to think if there would be a way to create an illusion of a tank going on the wall. I guess it is possible but would be more hasle than its worth.

If a new release came out; rendered in OpenGL, I guess it could.

two things:

#1 Jeff is NOT the head developer, he pointed that out to me today.
#2 BZFlag IS rendered in opengl. lol

the reason tanks wont tilt is that it would fundamentally change the game, for example how aiming works.

I would like to see a BZFlag where tanks could tilt and roll over small objects (like real tanks) and anuther thought was what if you made the turret on the tank be able to move seperately from the tank.

Yeah, yeah I know its not going to happen but it would be very cool.
