Phoenix is a standard [[Plug-ins|plug-in]] that is shipped with the [[BZFlag Source]] code. It modifies the starting, or [[Spawning]] position of a player tank so it will respawn where it last died. If the tank has not died ( first spawn ) the normal spawning rules for the server will be used.
 +
 
 +
Phoenix is included in [[BZFlag 2.0.9|v2.0.9]] and [[BZFlag SVN]] as of April 15th, 2007 and later releases.

==Usage==
 +
Phoenix is not a plug-in for all server types. It is intended for race type maps where the goal is to finish a course, and weapon use is just to slow your opponents down. Phoenix should not be used on maps that have [[Physics_Drivers|physics drivers]] that use the DEATH option, as tanks will respawn and just die again.
 +
 
 +
On a flag capture event, everyone will be reset back to normal spawns for their next spawn.
 +
 
 +
==History==
 +
Phoenix was made in response to postings on the BZBB forums about the desire for a non-lethal weapon that disabled a tank for a short time. By respawning where the user was when they died, they are effectively disabled for a death time.
