A material is used in a BZFlag world to define a new look for otherwise regular objects, such as meshboxes.

Code

To put a material in your map, first it must be defined:

material
 name example_material
 texture filename  # set the texture (don't use PNG extension)
 addtexture filename  # add a texture (again, no PNG extension)
 notextures  # don't use textures.
 notexcolor  # don't apply the color to the texture
 notexalpha  # don't use the texture's alpha channel
 texmat -1  # specify a texture matrix. -1 for no texture matrix.
 dyncol -1  # specify a dynamic color. -1 for no dynamic color.
 ambient 0.0 0.0 0.0 1.0  # ambient color
 diffuse 1.0 1.0 1.0 1.0  # diffuse (main) color
 color 1.0 1.0 1.0 1.0  # synonym for diffuse
 specular 0.0 0.0 0.0 1.0  # specular color
 emission 0.0 0.0 0.0 1.0  # emission color
 shininess 0.0  # shiny!
 resetmat  # restore default values
end

To actually apply a texture, you must use some sort of reference in an object, like so:

meshbox
 position 0 0 10
 rotation 0
 size 10 10 5
 matref example_material
end

History

Materials were added in BZFlag 2.0.0.

Editor Support

Materials are supported in Blender with BZWTools, pyBZEdit, and Wings3D with the BZW Exporter for Wings3D. Materials are NOT supported in BZEdit or BZFed.
