So I fixed a third flag skipping bug. This bug is in 1.11 and 1.40 servers.

Switch to Broadside, get the DS flag, and bring it back to the BE base. Go to one of the elevators and toss the flag on it. The elevator is now in the flag's contactList.

If you ride the elevator the flag will go up and down with the elevator because contactList.

Now grab the flag again before it is returned and toss it out on the floor near the elevator so you can watch it. When you ride the elevator again you will see the flag jumping and walking around.

If you keep a player riding the elevator after the flag is returned you can watch the flag hop off the stand and go skipping down the hallway.

If a flag "contacts" a vehicle something similar happens.

The fix is to clear the contactList when we setPosition or drop/throw the flag.

While we are on the elevator topic I never noticed this one before. Go to Broadside as DS, go to the top elevator, and ride it up.

I messed around this this for fun. I'm not sure if you also spotted this anomaly:

Basically do everything you already said (grab flag, ride elevator, toss it near elevator at the bottom). When you toss it close enough to the elevator, it will automatically snap to (what I assume) is the elevators trigger or contactList(?).

What's weird is that if you get close enough to the flag or pick it up, the elevator will immediately activate instead of waiting a few seconds like it normally does.

Just an oddity I saw.

Interesting. I will have to research two questions. Do triggers have contactLists? Can triggers get added to an object's contactList?

This reminds me of the air-to-air flag pass where sometimes the flag bounces off the recipient rather than getting caught. I guessed that perhaps the flag bounced off the player's weapon. So I need to check if the flag can get a player's weapon in its contactList. It would explain some weirdness if the flag was inheriting the motion of some player's weapon ROFL.

neat video thanks.
