Better Models & Textures

Model screenshots

A few of the old ugly placeholder models have been replaced with newer models. The models and their textures reflect the new style of the game. The comicbook style will be maintained, however it will get more serious and darker (a bit like the style borderlands). I hope you like the new style. Do note that the current level of details is still at the low-end. This will form the basis for Android and iOS. PC,Mac,Linux will have much better graphics. However this can only be done by a successful crowdfunding campaign.

  • The new flamethrower cannon model is completed and almost completely textured.
  • The new tesla cannon model is almost completed and it has some placeholder textures.
  • The tank hull model is almost completed and it has some placeholder textures.
  • The cannon (dual and single) have a new (Temporary) placeholder model to better reflect the style of where the game is going.
  • The scrapmetal armor model is almost completed and it has some placeholder textures.

The first test version for android has been made. The game works completely but needs optimization for the mobile devices. When the crowdfunding campaing succeeds, the development for android can continue.

Networking has been improved and will continue to be improved over time. You can help by testing this and report any (performance) issues.

Greenlight (Concepts) & IndieGoGo

Mini Tank Battle scan now be found on Steam Greenligh t(Concepts) and IndieGoGo! Since the game is getting bigger, we need your help to make this game happen. It is most likely that the game cannot be completed without a successful crowdfunding campaign (due to the cost of licenses, servers and more). If the crowdfunding campaign fails, you get your money back (details can be found at IndieGoGo). So either way, the campaign works, you get the perks reflecting your donation and the game can be released near 2013Q4 / 2014Q1, or you get your money back. Please support the game if you can.

So please help to make this happen via:


The Mini Tank Battles Website is all fresh and updated. Valuable information about the game and the development can be there. Let us know what you think: Minitankbattles.com

Thanks. The goal for the style is to make it a bit more detailed then it is now without losing the cell shading style. So its likely the turrets and HQ will get more detailed models (but not too detailed). One of the reasons is that this will most likely hit android/ios some day. The PVP arena is a good example of a bit more detail.

To anyone making feature request, modification requests or bug reports, I would ask to be as detailed / clear as possible. This makes it easier for me to respond to the post and give you all an idea if and when I am going to put this feature/modification in the game. Thanks in advance!

I will also soon post a rough roadmap of the future development of the game to assist in these posts.

The next update (or the one after that) will hold a character creation and loadout screen where you can select your default loadout. From here you can also access your inventory and discard items you no longer need. In the future this will be selling instead of discarding (since at the moment there is no currency). With the same update will also come the reset password feature. Every registered player will then have to make a character. Your inventory is cross character and can be accessed by all of your characters.

Thanks for the suggestion of the colouring of the game modes. That will surely be added.

Regarding some messages I received about server activity:

Since the game is in an early alpha stage, please don't wait for a random group to form. Lobbies in this stage of the game usually don't stay for a long time to wait for other players. If you want to try the multiplayer capabilities, ask some friends to try the game with you.

Hey Backdraft_3.5,

As you may have noticed, some of the points you address have been solved/added in the latest update.

Here are some comments about things that weren't in the update:

The laser (beam) tank you describe is going to be part of the missile launcher class. This is a slow shooting weapon with lots of damage. The normal Laser gun should become a part of the Engineer class. Another weapon is going to be the machine gun. This will most likely be part of the Engineer and Buggy classes.

There are no plans at the moment for the Drone, but these will be in consideration.

Some experiments have been done with showing damage with the hits. This however makes the screen pretty chaotic. There is going to be more experimentation before there is decided if they will be used.

There currently is a glow under the dropped item. Is it not rendering properly? If so, could you please make a screenshot?

There is an industrial map in the making. This has some factory like elements.

At this point there aren't going to be droppable powerups. However there is going to be talent tree and skillpoint system to tune your class further. At the moment it is also that some gear has impact on your character (e.g. certain armor gives you more health).

Some of the points that are currently not planned could change.

Thanks for your feedback and suggestions. Always feel free to suggest more or ask questions.
