Name Default Description
_agilityAdVel 2.25 Multiplies _tankSpeed (for short bursts) for tanks holding Agility flag
_agilityTimeWindow 1 Specifies how long the tank will have the speed specified by _agilityAdVel
_agilityVelDelta 0.3
_angleTolerance 0.05  ? src/bzflag/Player.cxx: if (fabsf(state.azimuth - predictedAzimuth) > angleTolerance)
_angularAd 1.5 Multiplies how fast tanks can turn while holding the Quick Turn flag
_avenueSize 2*_boxBase Space to leave between objects in random maps?
_baseSize 60 Width and Depth (bases have constant height) of the square bases for CTF games
_boxBase 30 Width and Depth of boxes on a random map?
_boxHeight 6*_muzzleHeight Height of boxes on a random map?
_burrowDepth 1.32 How far down tanks drop when they have the Burrow Flag. Making this much lower makes it below the floor, and impossible to kill tank!
_burrowSpeedAd .8 Multiplies _tankSpeed for tanks holding the Burrow Flag.
_burrowAngularAd .55 Multiplies how fast tanks can turn while holding the Burrow flag.
_coldetDepth 6
_coldetElements 4
_countdownResumeTime 5 This enforces a delay when resuming a paused countdown. If the argument is lower or equal to 0 then resuming is instantly, otherwise it is delayed according to the value (in seconds). Available in 2.1 and later
_cullDepth 6
_cullDist fog Far plane culling distance ('fog' uses the fog parameters).
_cullElements 16
_cullOccluders 0
_disableBots none Does not allow autopilot or bots on the server, equivalent to the old -probitbots command line option.
_drawCelestial 1 Draw the stars, sun, and moon.
_drawClouds 1 Draw the clouds.
_drawGround 1 Draw the ground plane.
_drawMountains 1 Draw the mountains.
_drawSky 1 Draw the sky pyramid.
_explodeTime 5 After a tank is killed, this is how long it takes to blow up, and then "respawn". Larger values translates into longer explosions and more client processor time. Note that an explosion is invisible if you are inside it, so large values may make it invisible up close, and extremely large values may make explosions entirely invisible.
_flagAltitude 11 The height that the flag flies when spawning or dropped.
_flagEffectTime 0.64 How long the flag effect time is.
_flagHeight 10 Height of the flag (not its pole).
_flagPoleWidth 0.025 Diameter of the flag pole.

_fogMode none Valid values: linear, exp, or exp2.
_fogDensity 0.001 Used for exp and exp2 fog modes.
_fogStart 0.5*_worldSize Used for linear fog mode, the distance where fog begins to occlude vision.

_fogColor "0.25 0.25 0.25" RGB or black, red, blue, etc... (alpha is ignored).
_friction 0 Zero is normal friction, the closer to 0 the harder it is to start and stop, and the higher the number the easier it is to start and stop.

_gmAdLife 0.95 How far guided missiles will go. Specified as a multiplier to _shotRange.
_gmTurnAngle 0.628319 The angle at which a Guided Missile will turn to follow its target. (Measured in radians)

_handicapVelAd 2 Player with handicap will receive this much more (_tankSpeed + _handicapVelAd) velocity than the normal _tankSpeed value.
**Note: These could be factors rather than additions
_handicapAngAd 1.5 Player with handicap will receive this much more (_angularAd + _handicapAngAd) turning ability than the normal _angularAd.
**Note: These could be factors rather than additions
_handicapShotAd 1.75 **Note: These could be factors rather than additions
