I think Brians thread is starting to go off topic.
Yeah, I know... Its not my fault that uberpwnage said ,"Wht A Pimp." I just retalliated. But, I wish Mike even more luck, and that his "book" is good reading.

Edited for it being taken the wrong way and out of context.
I apologize, I didn't know normal users are allowed to act like moderators here.
If you and have nothing better to do and want to reach the highest posting rank within a few weeks by replying to every single post then feel free, it isn't my life.
Continue on with the thread being back on topic. I shall not post again unless it's a question straight to Brian or Mike themselves in which I would expect an answer from one of those two only.
Again, I am sorry.

Keep up the great work guys, nice icons and weapons thus far.

No but it is your fault that for some reason you feel the need to reply to 99% of every post that someone makes in pretty much every topic. You've been here since only January and have already racked up 700+ posts? Good God dude. You're not in charge here, lay off trying to make yourself and others think you are.
You're not a moderator, forum ***** would be a more appropriate title.
Seriously, look at your post history, no one can have an opinion, joke around or say anything without you feeling the need to reply to it trying to look superior.

Chill out, please!

Incorrect and wrong oppinion ...
We should post as much as we can if post isn't spam and some kind of nonsense ... And just tell me why are there post ranks ... and what the hell has moderators to do with high post count, you think that moderators should post much and we shouldn't !?
Why ?

Don't start a flame war .

Don't start a flame war .

There is nothing wrong with posting a lot, but to post a lot in the essence of replying to each and every post someone makes only to make yours look superior is a bit overboard.
Hey, if you feel the need to boost your post count to the highest rank level in a matter of weeks, feel free but in my opinion it just shows who has nothing better to do. Also, I never meant moderators have anything to do with post counts, I mean why are normal posters replying to a ton of posts trying to make corrections or point out their wrong doings when they are NOT a moderator. Go look at DemyX's post history, he replies to 99% of EVERYTHING trying to make it sound as if he's a know-it-all or "my opinion is all that matters" type of person. Honestly, do you use the internet to constantly debate with people you don't know on a post by post basis?
There is nothing wrong with having an opinion but if you want yours respected, respect others and know that you're only a normal forum user, not someone with higher status.
I post here to gain info on Pocket Tanks, not to reply to everyone's post with what I think is a much more knowledgable.

Now to nip the "starting a flame war" in the bud, because I only gave my opinion, I'll go back on topic.
Nice icons and weapons thus far Mike, keep up the good work, most of us have patience and can't wait to try them out.

Hopefully this clears it all up and the ball stays in the on-topic court.

Slade

I'm guessing that the tank who uses this fires a long glob of damaging 'molten' glue at the opponent.

Brian

Run'n'Gun added. Not deleting any posts. You can wallow in your shame. :)

Slade

Well I'm glad that I wasn't part of it:)

Interesting weapon! Thanks Brian:):):)

Brimstone
03-14-2007, 07:47 PM
Run n' Gun sounds like it should shoot them and then move you like turn and burn so like you get 1 bonus move then it shoots.

Xap
03-14-2007, 09:13 PM
Thanks for the info on the new weapon, Brian!:)

It does sound a bit like a tank-launching weapon though (as Brimstone pointed out), but it's good anyway!

@Brian - Well, I have nothing to shame for !
I just pointed and stated my opinion about first Testamens post,and I have cleared things up with him . :)

And Run'N'Gun sounds and looks like a very, very... mysterious and powerful weapon (and I like it very much):
1.It has mysterious icon
2.It has mysterious effect
3.It has mysterious name

Point:It is mysterious weapon !

Slade

A mystery soon to be exposed! (hopefully)...

Kaz21
03-15-2007, 04:38 AM
The glue gun still seems wierd, if it doent do damage you would be helping your opponent by shielding him with blue which would kill your cruisers, skippers and all.

Run'N'Gun sounds amazing!

Kaz21`

Edit: Oh yeah, has anyones idea been put in?

Everlast
03-15-2007, 05:30 AM
The first weapon in the list was Zwaken's idea.

Kaz21
03-15-2007, 05:48 AM
Oh ok that's cool, it would rock to have your weapon added into the game, none of mine will get added I don't think.

Brian
03-15-2007, 02:11 PM
Glue gun can also be used defensively. As for run'n'gun, I think the point behind the name is that, as the original "bullet" is flying, it is firing out smaller bullets. So perhaps, "Fly'n'Gun" would be more accurate, but sound stupid. "Drive-by" might be most evocative, but, a little TOO un-PC.

Brimstone
03-15-2007, 07:08 PM
How about gun flyer or hover gunner? It does look pretty good though.

Lob-o-Matic's brother?

I am guessing a cross of Lobo and Buckshot.

03-15-2007, 08:45 PM
More like Lob-o-matic and Lodestones.

blue_moon
03-15-2007, 08:46 PM
So its magnetic?

Slade
03-15-2007, 09:20 PM
Or lodestones because there are many scattered shots constantly emmiting from the main bullet?

Zwaken
03-21-2007, 10:47 PM
And is it just me or do the first 5 of those icons seem slightly pixelated?

blue_moon
03-21-2007, 10:51 PM
The first five do seem awkward... I think Mike needs to fix that.

I think we should give Mike a break he works really hard for us and we couldn't ask for more.

Brian
03-22-2007, 01:17 AM
Mike has been concentrating on weapon design rather than icons, and so he only has one other icon done, which he doesn't like and is going to change. As to the first five looking different, you've got me. They are. The other ones are the direct images Mike is using, the first five were taken from a screenshot ingame. Hence the quality difference.

blue_moon
03-22-2007, 01:18 AM
Ah... Can we have the name and the icon later?

Whoohoo! Looks neat!:)
I sure hope the pack comes out soon!

blue_moon
03-26-2007, 08:45 PM
Tractor beam looks a tab cheap. Does it always hit?

Xap
03-26-2007, 08:49 PM
Yeah, I hope it's not like that, I don't really want another easy-to-hit weapon.

Everlast
03-26-2007, 09:00 PM
It'd be cool if the weapon didn't hit the tank, it would pick up dirt and throw it. :) This next pack sounds ausome. I can already picture the tractor beam having that "green glowing effect"...............like every other tracter beam.

Sweet stuff...

Brian
03-27-2007, 02:25 PM
You have to be pretty close to the tank for the tractor beam to work. It doesn't proxy or anything, it just hits the ground and triggers the effect within a small radius of the impact sight. It doesn't pick up dirt, but it does have another effect which I'll let you guys find for yourselves if you get the pack. ;)

yen0652
03-27-2007, 06:19 PM
Tractor beam seems pretty snazzy...will it cut through ground to pick up the person? or will it be like phaser and stop when it hits ground?

Xap

And i know this has had to come up in the past but does anyone know if pocket tanks is ever gonna go online, because that would be a gr8 day.........

Soon, bunches... Soon. Expect it really, really, really late. I don't know what I am getting at. Nobody does. Nobody at all. Not even the guy sitting next to me. Online version will be awesome, because I'll show my dominance! The weapons may come out sometime this or next week (if we are lucky) because, they have been delayed quite a bit and we are all hoping! And hopping!

@people talking about online play: To those who hold high places, must be the ones that start. :D I just wanted to say something completely not-helpful.

We have no idea when online could come in hand. it's a time bomb, with no display of time. It'll happen, but no-one knows when...not even the SWAT or Bombsquad ;)

blue_moon
03-28-2007, 07:44 PM
Well, the could put the bomb in the ocean or space and forget all about it. I do agree about online play. Just wait for it. Its not out yet, so don't bother talking about it until Brian or Mike start it. Thats all for me.

Brimstone

blue_moon
03-28-2007, 11:55 PM
No, I think it would be pretty much the same... I remember playing runescape on a computer with 127 ram and dial-up netzero on an ME. It worked fine, until I followed a guy that was following me... But that is something else. But however, online play is in the far future, so why are we going on about it? Its not going to speed anything up.

I'm gettin a bit ticked about the constant delay, it's like wat happenned at skool about the snow tubing trip delayed 3 times then canceled. :(

blue_moon
04-01-2007, 02:33 PM
The thing is, delays are unaccountable. That is why the release date should have been early April from the start, it gets a little depressing to keep hearing that its delayed. What would be really exciting is that they had a late release date and released it early, however, the new engine I heard has shown to be quite stubborn.

Brimstone
04-01-2007, 07:39 PM

blue_moon

If I was him, I'd play pocket tanks to pass the time.

Brian
04-02-2007, 03:37 PM
The problem this time around is that Mike has been putting out weapons for Pocket Tanks for five years using the exact same v1.00b engine. The same basic mechanics for weapons, the same limitations to what can be done. Since the update, Mike et al. have been working with a completely different set of rules, and with entirely new possibilities for weapon design. Just about every weapon in the 15 pack uses the new code in some way or another, and that kind of branching out takes more time and effort, even some trial and error.

On top of that, Mike is, as always, a bit of a perfectionist. I don't think he's going to let these out until there's no chance of compatibility problems.

blue_moon

PS-Is the 5-pack done?

blue_moon
04-02-2007, 08:10 PM

Everlast
04-02-2007, 10:47 PM
PS-Is the 5-pack done?

Well Brian said (above post) that it is being delayed because nearly all the weapons in the 15 pack use the new engine, but he didn't say anything about the 5 pack to mabye. But they release them at the same time so I don't think it matters.

As I said before, even if the free pack is done, they won't release it untill the pay pack is also done.

Brian
04-03-2007, 02:49 PM
The five pack, to the best of my knowledge, is done as well. Last time I checked, there were only icons for 2 of the weapons, but I think Mike has rectified that.

Edit:

Scorcher added.

Everlast
04-03-2007, 05:30 PM
Sounds like the water bomb except it hits the ground first and shoots out fire. I think I remember someone suggesting a weapon like that, but I don't know who.

04-03-2007, 05:32 PM
Yeah, it seems that in Scorcher is part of my weapon Fire Splash, and I'm pretty happy cause of that ! :)

Slade
04-03-2007, 09:12 PM
Cool, but sounds kinda basic. You know, like an already made weapon but with a different main thing added.

The new ones won't overpower the old ones, will they?


edit: Also, everyone, just chill out. How often does everyone actually play the game, instead of going to target practice and looking at the weapons. Seriously, there are 165 current weapons. It just seems to me that things are getting too focused on the weapons, rather than the game itself. Go and play and have fun.

Kaz21
04-04-2007, 11:06 AM
Well I havent been here for a while so this the first time I have saw the tractor beam and scorcher, tracotr beam sounds cool as! Also I think scorcher was a good idea to put in because there are plenty of water weapons similar but no fire versions.

Anyway my favorites so far are:
Graviton
Fizz Bombs
Thor's Hammer
Run'N'Gun
Tractor Beam

There all so cool and I can't wait for there release but I'm still having fun the gold and snowball packs.

Brian
04-04-2007, 01:27 PM
Scorcher is slightly different from Napalm in a few ways. First, the area of effect is, as indicated, much larger. Second, it is, in my opinion, more liquid. It doesn't explode or bounce or anything like that. Third, it is much, much shorter in duration, i.e. though it doesn't require a great deal of accuracy, it won't give you much damage from a prolonged burn.

Brian
04-04-2007, 05:30 PM
Saucer Attack added. I believe that rounds out the 15 weapon pack.

Everlast
04-04-2007, 05:41 PM
That's the best one so far. Question though, does it do a lot of damage if the saucer itself hits the tanks or the blast from the sacuer? Either way it saounds cool.

....that was kinda a punch in the throat. :anirolleyes: Anyway the only weapon that they have taken from a "Weapon Suggestion Thread" so far that we know of is Graviton, which was Zwaken's "Juggle".

That is the only one for sure. I'm pretty sure that "Stampede" and "Tornado" came from the Weapons Suggestions.

So... Brian, 15 weapons are already ready. usually, you add to the expansion pack15 weapons to buy plus 5 that are free. Why not giving these free weapons now? So that we would not have to wait for the whole 20. We simply can't wait for them :) !

Ladies and gentlemen, I am pleased to share with you some of the upcoming weapons in our impending expansion packs. At the moment, only a portion of the weapons are done, so I will be releasing information slowly, at a metered rate. Don't expect more than one or two icons a week until more are done. As the release nears, expect the pace to pick up dramatically. Now, down to the crux of the matter!

http://www.blitwise.com/forum_pics/weapon_icons/hotcoals.gifHot Coals:
Hot Coals is a fun weapon that fires a round that, in proximity to the enemy, bursts into flames, showering the tank in fire. It's like releasing a box of doves, only, instead of doves, you have flaming death, and instead of majestically flying away, they plummet to the earth.

http://www.blitwise.com/forum_pics/weapon_icons/gravitons.gifGraviton:
Graviton fires powerful particles which circle the enemy tank, lifting it off the ground and pounding it for damage points. Similar to being abducted by tiny aliens, only no one believes you, no matter how many street corners you rant on or websites you start trying to alert the population to the UNSTOPPABLE THREAT FROM OUTER SPACE AND...HEY! Let go of me...you can't...oohhh...sleepy dart...

http://www.blitwise.com/forum_pics/weapon_icons/fizz_bombs.gifFizz Bombs:
Fizz Bombs fire from your tank and hit the ground, expanding to envelope a small area in tank-eating foam. Two words: Deadly AlkaSeltzer.

http://www.blitwise.com/forum_pics/weapon_icons/thors_hammer.gifThor's Hammer:
Fire a whirling hammer of the gods, striking your opponent with a blast of lightning and extra damage on contact. "Valhalla, I am coming!"

http://www.blitwise.com/forum_pics/weapon_icons/stampede.gifStampede:
Sends a line of cruiser style weapons that rush forward and hit your opponent's tank, forcing him backwards. "Cow tipping's not so funny anymore, is it, bucko?"

http://www.blitwise.com/forum_pics/weapon_icons/tornado.gifTornado:
Sends a spinning tornado cruising along the ground at your enemy. Munchkin weapon coming soon.

http://www.blitwise.com/forum_pics/weapon_icons/firefly.gifFirefly:
A shot that explodes into glowing and fading points of light which do damage to the tank. I've been telling people for years they were out to get us, man...here's the proof! HERE'S THE PROOF!!!

http://www.blitwise.com/forum_pics/weapon_icons/gluestorm.gifGlue Storm:
Simply put, it rains down sticky glue on the battlefield. For is it not said, yea, he maketh it to rain glue upon the just and the unjust.

http://www.blitwise.com/forum_pics/weapon_icons/deflector.gifDeflector:
Builds a thin bouncy shield over your tank, with a small opening for you to fire. Full power to forward deflector shields, if you would.

http://www.blitwise.com/forum_pics/weapon_icons/gluegun.gifGlue Gun:
Fires a wad of glue at your enemy. No...no...I'm not going to touch this one with a 10 foot pole.

http://www.blitwise.com/forum_pics/weapon_icons/rungun.gifRun'n'Gun:
Launches a shot that fires numerous spreads of bullets at the enemy tank. Like throwing exploding rice at a really interesting wedding.

http://www.blitwise.com/forum_pics/weapon_icons/tractorbeam.pngTractor Beam:
Pulls the tank high in the sky, where it takes damage until the beam cuts out sending it crashing back down. This one is bound to cause flashbacks in the alien abductee crowd. We should have our lawyer get ready.

http://www.blitwise.com/forum_pics/weapon_icons/scorcher.pngScorcher:
Fires a round which bursts open upon contact, spilling out quick burning flames over a large area.

http://www.blitwise.com/forum_pics/weapon_icons/saucerattack.pngSaucer Attack:
Two alien spacecraft rain down destruction on your opponent from either side of the screen. Big damage if one of these hits a tank!!!

http://www.blitwise.com/forum_pics/weapon_icons/smokebomb.pngSmoke Bomb:
Launches a canister which, in proximity to the enemy, explodes in a cloud of smoke, causing slight damage and obscuring their turret orientation. I use these when passing people who keep their blinkers on.

Note: While the icons are final, some weapon names may be undergoing moderate changes for aesthetic reasons.
More official weapons will be coming soon!

The Fuzz Pack:

http://www.blitwise.com/forum_pics/weapon_icons/burningrubber.pngBurning Rubber:
Flaming molten rubber that coats the terrain. Gummie bears meets Speed Racer.

http://www.blitwise.com/forum_pics/weapon_icons/blockade.pngBlockade:
Encase the enemy in a hollow shell, so they melt in your mouth, not in your hand.

I know Pyro, it is a bummer.

Mac-backers can't help but be excited after today's wonderful news and the 5 weapon shabang, but then again it only digs our hole deeper and elevates our suspense/curiosity levels to near-fatal.

CTSP I heard was going to come out with a complete new game before 1.1, and then they will have to do the expansions on top of that.

For those unfamiliar with the suspense scale, here....

Suspense/Level Scale (with increasing ferocity)

1. Bored
2. Intrigued
3. Curious
4. Slightly impatient
5. Starting to get frustrated, then sad, then mad again, then sad once more, then you take your bipolar medicine, then you feel emotionless
6. Obsession and Intense Suspense set in
7. Near Fatal
8. Fatal
9. Just past fatal
10. So incredibly lethal it feels like TWO of Brian's sleepy darts from the Graviton weapon taking you out in the neck as you stand in a bucket of pirhannas and watch the shadow of Harry S. Truman's Hiroshima nuke get bigger, and bigger, around you.

11. Vaporization, then Radiation, followed by Elimination.

ya, and what's up with "run'n'gun"?

-----------
"Run'n'Gun:

-----------

Wouldn't it make more sense if fired a shot, but then moved a little in either direction? Or the name seems to suggest some type of guerrilla warfare in which you run after you insult from afar.

Granite, under some circumstance it would be impossible to move (e.g. buried alive in dirt) but it would be very realistic if some future weapons or this one possibly had a 'kick' like that of a shotgun or handgun in real life.

Smoke Screen - creates a cloud of gray smoke that does no damage but changes its angle and power of the tank

I'm pretty sure that that Blockade was one, someone came up with also, but I'm not sure, I will go look. :)



Blockade: creates a tilted wall leaning towards the opponent where it lands

Hi guys...the Fuzz pack would be compatible with v.1.00b, but why on earth would you still be using that? :D

Mike keeps a list of weapons (and names) suggestions that he likes, but I don't know if he keeps a strict list of who inspired what weapons, if any. A lot of them are taken from similar suggestions, then paired with a name he liked, or just a name he made up. I'll see if he remembers though.

Im not demanding they come out now. I was kidding.

04-24-2007, 03:44 PM
I'll discuss release timetables in the other thread. To clarify, this thread is for discussion of the weapons and icons themselves. Any questions about the when or how should be in the other thread.

And Everlast is right. For the PC, there is v1.00a (generally only used now by pirates and people WAY out of the loop) v1.00b, v1.10, which is the current version, and a new minor update. I believe there was also a plain v1.00, which was quickly superseded by v1.00a, but that doesn't really enter into the discussion. There is also a v1.00c, but that is Mac only, and doesn't really have anything to do with BlitWise.

04-24-2007, 08:04 PM
Cool. I might just actually try and get all versions of PTanks. However, I can't believe I actually made a Blockade weapon, that kind of acts similar.

The wall leans towards your opponent. I'm guessing that this Blockade will too.

blue_moon
05-24-2007, 06:26 PM
No, in order to achieve a new weapon, the weapons would need to be coded ONLINE. It would be overall easier because there would be no limits, but you could use them online only for testing purposes. Also, you should have to pay maybe $2 for 10 weapons or something like that, or give them to Mike so he can put them in a pack. Its just that if the editor was not online, there would be remakes of all the weapons that you have to pay for. Remember all the testing the new packs underwent before coming out? Don't forget that. Some one with a career would do that, but it would drive the average user insane. The basic form of a glitched weapon would be sent to Mike to fix (if he liked the idea a lot). Besides, move this discussion to the already available thread for the "Weapon Maker." It just gets annoying to see that this thread has a few new posts in it, when it could be a recall or something when its really off-topic discussion.
