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.

Model screenshots


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.

Model screenshots


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:

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.

Hey Backdraft_3.5. Regarding your comment:

The next first mob for the planning is going to be a Kamikaze vehicle.

The twin cannon mount was already added, but it never dropped due to a bug. With the next update the twin cannon will properly drop.

The Repair tank & Mortar tank are named the "Engineer" and "Missile Launcher". On the player side these two will become playable classes. Another playable class will be the "Buggy/Humvee". The class and character systems are being worked on now.

The current boss will self destruct near the base with great damage. However the self destruct range is still a bit too big in contrast to the slowing down of the boss when it nears your base. Have you already had your base destroyed by the boss?

There are no plans for combat planes. However the missile class will most likely get the option to summon an airstrike.

The next two towers to be added are the Tesla Cannon Tower and the Flamethrower Tower.

The weapons you describe are going to be parts of the new classes. The Repair Kit is going to be an ability of the Engineer. The mortar of the Missile Launcher.

PVP has 2 modes in planning.
Arena mode: Just you and the other players. No mobs.
Conflict mode: Two bases with two groups of players. Here you can buy mobs to send to the other base and build turrets to protect your own. The goal is to destroy the enemy base.

Hope this clears up a bit.
Thanks for the feedback and suggestions. These are always very welcome.
