#556 Impersonate Flag

BZFlag (297)

Although rejected on the Flag wiki page http://wiki.bzflag.org/Flag_ideas/Rejected#Masquerade_Radar.28MR.29 , this flag should be reconsidered as it would work properly on maps that do not disable radar (a patch for that, to dequeue this flag from those maps could be done in the future).

This flag shows an enemy's flag on the radar as the same color as their own. It is useful to sneak up "in plain sight" on players.

    The patch file has a missing ';' so you need to fix that when you patch against your files :-(

    This flag was rejected because it's usefulness was limited to specific map settings in a non-intuitive way.

    It's nice that you felt the need to code it, but it is not something we want to do right now.
