Tank Battle Conversion

Post by vibesofecstasy »

I'm not so into developing because of all the dedication needed for it and i don't run a server but if you can control all the grinding and wall lengths then couldn't they be removed a maze map made the cycles converted into tanks and use guns???
then we the game could double up so we could switch movie packs to enjoy tank battles.

This mod already exist: http://www.freesoftwaremagazine.com/articles/bzflags.

It support:
1) network game
2) no trail after the vehicule
3) shooting
4) jumping

and also, the tanks are not bound to certain directions like the cycles are, which is basically all you asked and then some more.

Except that it is a free standing application, and doesnt share a line of code with us! But on the plus side, you dont have to wait for it.

Isn't bzflag's network based on Quake as well? They might share some code...
