Hello my freinds and mappers, i understand 1.6 is almost finished , but when i was 18 years old ,i went to this great rock formation called the devils marbles .here is a pic ...If you are interested . google devils marbles australia ... there an acient rock formation.. i only know how to make mud maps , but would imagine these wouldn,r be to hard to map , And we be alot of fun jumping around on them, perhaps have 1 blocking a gold mine, bandits need to blow the rock , to move on to the GOLD ..plus the name has a great ring to it .. cheers guys IAN :cya: just an idea :naughty:

Careful with that! It's been done before: Careless Code Reuse Causes Killer Kangaroos Mutant Marsupials Take Up Arms Against Australian Air Force The reuse of some object-oriented code has caused tactical headaches for Australia's armed forces. As virtual reality simulators assume larger roles in helicopter combat training, programmers have gone to great lengths to increase the realism of their scenarios, including detailed landscapes and - in the case of the Northern Territory's Operation Phoenix- herds of kangaroos (since disturbed animals might well give away a helicopter's position). The head of the Defense Science & Technology Organization's Land Operations/Simulation division reportedly instructed developers to model the local marsupials' movements and reactions to helicopters. Being efficient programmers, they just re-appropriated some code originally used to model infantry detachment reactions under the same stimuli, changed the mapped icon from a soldier to a kangaroo, and increased the figures' speed of movement. Eager to demonstrate their flying skills for some visiting American pilots, the hotshot Aussies "buzzed" the virtual kangaroos in low flight during a simulation. The kangaroos scattered, as predicted, and the visiting Americans nodded appreciatively... then did a double-take as the kangaroos reappeared from behind a hill and launched a barrage of Stinger missiles at the hapless helicopter. Apparently the programmers had forgotten to remove that part of the infantry coding. The lesson? Objects are defined with certain attributes, and any new object defined in terms of an old one inherits all the attributes. The embarrassed programmers had learned to be careful when reusing object-oriented code, and the Yanks left with a newfound respect for Australian wildlife. Simulator supervisors report that pilots from that point onward have strictly avoided kangaroos, just as they were meant to.

From June 15, 1999, Defense Science and Technology Organization Lecture Series, Melbourne, Australia, and staff reports. Item taken from Software Testing and Quality Engineering magazine, Volume 1, Issue 6 (November/December 1999).

-Ok this was a bit of an urban myth says the urban myth about the urban myth says that this really happenned but it was caught in early testing. The code was left in for two days just for fun and then the code for pulling out the weapons was also overridden.
