Please tell me you have flag passing in. Flag passing is one of the funnest bits of Tribes CTF. The way it moves in T:A is very good in my opinion. It floats quite a bit so you have good opportunities to catch it. The main problem is the flag bounces too strongly in that game. You try to throw the flag at your feet for a teammate to pick up and it bounces over their head. Flag punting is great too but it is too inconsistent in T:A. Half the time people screw up and botch the punt. Would be nice if punting worked 100% of the time like passing. I had an idea that if we needed to we could set it so if you suicide while holding the flag that is what causes it to punt. No needing to shoot the flag with your gun and miss it half the time.

Flag tossing is in. I expect that the values I'm using will need to be tweaked a bunch as I haven't had and good multiplayer testing. Current flag behavior tosses at near the same speed as the rocket launcher, has full velocity inheritance(of course), has a weak bounce and likes to slide. We'll see what changes make sense after a bit of testing. Punting isn't in in any form yet. Once projectile v projectile collision behavior is added, punting should be in in some form.

Woohoo!

Whenever testing starts I have a small community of tribes veterans that we could use. We have our own pick up game that we hold on Saturday nights as well as gathering at random other times. Should be easy to get enough for a ctf game to test PFF.
