questions about game mechanics

Post by compiler_q »

question list:

1. is it possible to get closer to a wall faster than someone else? (via tricks or something?)
2. can you dig into a wall forever? (assuming unlimited rubber or waiting for rubber to replenish then resuming digging)
3. are there any penalties related to digging, does speed affect the efficiency?

1. Yes, depending on server settings you can do so with a higher speed
2. Yes, large rubber and/or large brakes make it happen
3. See 1. Also, depending on settings, if I remember correctly, how quick you turn twice can affect rubber usage/depth progression.

That said I don't play high-rubber often at all so I don't know their settings.

In high rubber you can use settings like CYCLE_RUBBER_MINDISTANCE to create penalties for digging, or CYCLE_RUBBER_MINDISTANCE_GAP to make digging and stabbing impossible.
