Airspawn

Airspawn is a standard plug-in that is shipped with the source code. It allows the starting, or spawning position of a player tank to be somewhere in the air. Airspawn is included in v2.0.4 and later releases.

Usage[edit]

When the airspawn is loaded it can take an optional parameter that represents the maximum height variance that will be applied to a spawn position. The default value is 10 world units. With the plugin loaded, the height above ground of tank spawns will be a random value between 0 and the maximum value. The usage is:

-loadplugin "X:\path\to\the\plugin\airspawn.dll,<maxHeight>"

or in an already running game:

/loadplugin "X:\path\to\the\plugin\airspawn.dll,<maxHeight>"

Examples:

-loadplugin "C:\Program Files\BZFlag2.4.10\airspawn.dll,100"
-loadplugin "/usr/local/bzflag2.4.10/plugins/airspawn.so,100"

The "-loadplugin" syntax is used in the server configuration file or at the command line when invoking a game server.

History[edit]

Airspawn was the very first plug-in made, it was a proof of concept for the API.
