Merry Christmas

Dear community,

as you problably noticed, it has been quiet around the development of Battle Tanks. The sad truth is, our time available for this project and our motivation to work on it are not what they used to be. So we were faced with a decision to make. Battle Tanks exists for almost as long as the Frozen Throne expansion of Warcraft 3 (which makes it almost 12 years old). So seeing it simply die is not worthy of the game.

So we decided the following:

christmas-928322_640We will make Battle Tanks Open Source

Ideally this would mean that everyone would contribute towards a new version by submitting his / her work to a central repository. The proprietary nature of the Warcraft map files makes this harder than I’d like. So for now, we will only make the map available for everyone, so you guys can see what the map looks like in its current form.

If anyone has questions or suggestions regarding this map feel free (and encouraged!) to voice them (Forum).

The aim – at this time – is to take the input of the community and maybe continue the development in a way that is feasible.
Of course, if someone wants to make a mod or use parts of the code for his own project, he / she is free to do so – it’s open source after all. But we would still like to get credit, if substantial parts of the map have been used (as you can see in the code itself).

Anyway, we hope the map helps some of you and maybe some of you help (the development of) the map.

Battle Tanks 8.63 Hacked and Mangled Mod by NarFlux

Now, after showing you the open source version of Battle Tanks, I’ll show you what can be done with it.

A few months ago NarFlux asked me for an open source version, which I gave to him. He wanted to realize his own vision of the map, which apparently involved a lot of explosions. He didn’t include a changelog, but he had to say this about this mod:

The Tanks I’ve added are the Destroyer, the Ancient, and the Monolyth. All more end game Tanks. And the Towers don’t go down easy at all. Plus I added the little Plasma Towers that attack very slowly, and gave most of the Building little Long Range Attacks, or the Headquarters has the 10000 Damage attack with 1000 AoE ever 60 seconds. Then I went nuts with the Weapons, Armor Combinations, and Support Items.
If I make a list of all the changes I will send it to you…it would be quite long though.

It takes me at least 1 hour to 2 hours to play it, rushing with never happen.

He also acknowledged, that there are still some bugs in the map, but since this is more a show of concept, it shouldn’t bother anyone too much. So, take a look at it and tell us what you think about it! Who knows, maybe some of the changes will find their way into the main map 😉
