I'd like to see wings be a server settable option for all
tanks. I'm not talking about allowing or dis-allowing the
wings flag, but adding a server option to give all tanks
wings capability all the time, much like the -j option
does for jumping.

Having this option would open up some pretty cool map
ideas (both CTF and FFA) that are only possible if you
can both fly and carry another flag.

I have no idea how difficult this would be to implement,
but I suspect it would require a protocol change. But
maybe it could be a "friendly" protocol change that
wouldn't break older clients - they just wouldn't be able
to use the new feature.

    I would love to see this in action--would make for some
    very, very cool maps.

    I should point out that I submitted a patch
    (http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?
    func=detail&aid=1158843&group_id=3248&atid=303248) to
    implement this feature. It should apply fine against the just-
    released 2.0.2 version.

    Note that the patch has both server and client components.
    So even though the patched client and server will work
    seamlessly with their non-patched counterparts, your tank
    won't be flying unless both client and server have the patch.

    That would be realy good but i think you would have to limit
    the height you can go but it would be realy cool to have air
    - air combat
