Physics, or Physics Driver, when applied to an object, will affect a tank touching it in some way. Physics can be applied to any 2.0 object, namely: mesh, meshbox,meshpyr,sphere,cone,tetra, and arc. Similar to materials, they can not be applied to the box or pyramid objects unless the server (bzfs) is version 2.0.9 or later.

The valid parameters for physics are:
|name||Name of the physics driver, for reference|
|linear||Cause a tank to move linearly at the given velocity (x/y/z). For example linear 5 0 0 would cause any tanks on the object to move at a velocity of 5 towards X+ (the side of the map with the highest value of X).|
|angular||Cause a tank to rotate at the given velocity,(Rotation velocity, x/y coordinates of the centre).|
|slide||Cause the tank to accelerate slowly during the time given. (i.e. Makes a 'slippery' surface.)(Time until max velocity (> 0.0 enables)|
|death||Causes the tank to die on contact. Player sees the given message|
A physics driver can be called by adding 'phydrv <name>' to an object, group or mesh face, like so:
meshbox position 0 0 10 size 10 10 5 phydrv example_phydrv end
There are currently no supported editors: physics drivers will need to be added by hand in a text editor.
The Physics object was added with the v2.0.0 release of BZFlag.
