  • PUT your ideas HERE

    The some ideas:
    - Necessarily interactive objects (small lakes, flanks with napalm, shelters, a mines, a walls and so forth...). Interactive terrain objects would be SUPER!!!
    - Various layers of the ground: the more deeply, the it is more difficult to destroy
    - The snow should thaw from fire (napalm, a flame thrower...)
    - On a snow the tank goes little bit more slowly
    - Not necessarily all new weapons should be MEGA - powerful, should be and weak, giving there are not enough points
    - 4 move it are not enough, in options the amount of moves should be adjusted (and rounds)
    - Mode of tournament (if it is a lot of players) or 4 players hotseat
    - Mode of one player where the following contender will be more difficult with each level, and on the received points to buy the weapons
    - Better and smarter AI
    - Increase screen resolution (1024*76
    - Online (LAN TCP/IP) mode (I hear it will be in next version)
    - It is possible to release 3 weapon packs.1) 5 weapons free 2) 10 weapons 5 $ 2) 15 weapons 7,99 $ (More free packs :-)
    - The table of records on the main screen
    - Bugs FIXES
    - (Weapon) The radioactive stain (as a bouncy dirt for example) if to rise on it the enemy will receive points
    - (Weapon) Poison: Shell as Sniper Rifle at hit in the enemy, each round you receive 10 points (very good idea)
    - (Weapon) A high grass, having come in it you it will be invisible (as an rainbow dirt, but you can move and shoot into grass)
    - (Weapon) Super glue - the tank is pasted to a surface
    - (Weapon) Mighty porcupine - shells fly little bit further and everyone gives 20 points
    - (Weapon) Super Roman candle - 5 shots, everyone gives 15 points and destroys a few landscape
    - (Weapon) Teleporter - changes tanks places with each other (not so bad)
    - (Weapon) Random Chaosgrenade: Each time includes 5 different (Random) weapons (nice)
    - Mike is too much secrets, tell to fans more :-)

    Thanks for read this chicken-feed (But Poison, Random Chaosgrenade and Teleporter - good ideas In my opinion)

        1. Please remove the animations from the menu - its annoying
        2. Let us chooose how much rounds we want to play
        3. Please add that player can get minus points. Cause its unfair if player 1 has points and player 2 not and player 2 can do what he want cause he cant loose points. I think -100 points should be enough
        4. Add a volume bar. i can only choose 2 Options: Loud music / No music
        5. The Paddle Ball is a fail. Not working
        6. Blackout is rly black. Can't see it on the screen
        7. Game Options: Add "Random" to all settings.
        8. If I Exit a match please send me back to the menu and not to the start screen
        9. Lemon wtf?^^

          1. Is there something about the menu animation that you specifically dislike? It's not a bad idea, I'm just curious.
          2. That's a possibility, but could really throw off weapon balance.
          3. I don't think this will happen. Having 0 as the threshhold is a deliberate decision we've made, one that certain types of weapons (including increasingly more) are balanced around, (ie, Yo-yo, Mass Driver, etc)
          4. There is a volume bar (unless i'm just thinking of the alpha build for the next update). There are two, in fact, in the options menu, for Music and SFX.
          5. What isn't working about Paddle Ball? It seems to work the way we intended it to every time I use it. I grant that, to get a lot of points, you need to fire it askew in just the right way, but many weapons (Sniper Shot, Phase Missile, etc) require precision for big rewards.
          6. Again, that's a feature, not a bug. Blackout exists so that you can create dirt that your enemy forgets about, throwing off his plan and aim.
          7. Most of the settings do have random available. The explosion size and kick don't...and that could be fun to have randomized. The wind speed/variability/frequency options are, in themselves, randomizers, though not as spectacular as we'd like.
          8. I agree. I believe you will see this in the next update, at least for online games.
          9. Hey, when life hands you lemons...save them for when you're buried in dirt.

            1. It's the moving text. It needs too long to change between menus
            2. Whats about 10 and 15 rounds?
            3. Its because that the player with 0 points can play more aggressiv cause he has nothing to loose
            4. OK
            5. Often I have the problem, that paddle ball is doing 0 damage - Just bouncing around the enemy
            6. Ah, I see - good to know
            7. You are right. To randomize explosions and kick is a bad idea.
            8. Ty - LEEEMOOOOONNNNSSS^^ - Whats about a Super Lemon - Random Weapon? I love Random^^

            9. May u move the "Player Options" like Name and Color to the Options. I dont need to see it everytime I want play a Single Game.

            What do u think - How long have we wait for hte update??

              2. It's a possibility, though I suspect it would involve a deceptively significant amount of work.
              3. Again, I think that's a good thing. We will eventually be doing another artillery game where your performance is measured more in survival and less in points, though.
              9. That's probably a good idea. I don't know how much more UI work the guys want to do right now though.

              As far as the next update, it's still too soon to tell. I will say you likely won't see it for at least a month, but we'll know better by that time how long it will be.

                Hi, my next idea is: Chat in Weapon choose menu.

                EDIT: Lock Box BIG FAIL. Enemy isn't locked. He is in an undestroyable bunker and can't be killed.

                    Re: PUT your ideas HERE

                    Hi, I have a few new ideas.

                    1. Rename Yo-Yo to Yo-Lo (You Only Live Once) or YoYo YoLo
                    2. Weapon: Vacuum Cleaner - Sucks ground or stuff which the tank is coverd and forms a ball equal the amount of mass and shoots it to the enemy. Max Damage 50
                    3. Weapon: Storm Tornado - Spins the enemy around and blows him away. The enemy must be near to the tank. No range attack. Like Blowtorch. Max Damage 35
                    4. Weapon: Returnball - Like Paddle Ball but hits the enemy through the level and puts him randomly in the level. 7 hits 8dmg each.
                    5. Weapon: Grappling Hook - To pull enemy
                    6. Deflector - Guards tank 1 round against damage or reduce 50% damage.
                    7. Grab Bag - i thougt it's a good idea only play with Grab Bag cause its a random weapon but its NOT!!! - I got 6 times in a row firecracker and 2 same weapons and 1 other weapon. and my enemy only Piledriver and a water weapon. in 9 rounds we only got 6 different weapons.
                    8. I want sort the weapons in Game Menü ascending letters a-z
                    X. EASY^^!!! Map Generator

                      My ideas for pocket tanks

                      Hi all,

                      New member to this forum,

                      I used to play the Amiga version of this back in the day, so my suggestions are from there,

                      SHIELDS download as a weapons pack maybe?)

                      BOUNCY SHIELD: reflects general shots, but an be destroyed by others

                      MAGNETIC SHIELD: bullets get close , then veer off due to magnetic field, can be destroyed by acid rain, lasers, fire, snow, etc

                      REFLECTOR SHIELD: bullets bounce back to the sender, can be destroyed in same way as magnetic shield.

                      ABSORB SHIELD: Absorbs damage and gets disolved simultaneously. Different strengths avalable.

                      Many others I cant think of right now...

                      2ND IDEA:

                      DESTROYABLE TANKS: losing tank blows up at end of final round.

                      Amiga version also had tanks go grey from fire damage, tank floats away as a ghost and others. It gives added satisfaction to the winner.

                      Thats all for now.

                        Welcome to the forum, BT. Those features are all, or mostly, going to be in the sequel to Scorched Tanks, when we get around to making it. Pocket Tanks, though, will likely stay with the particular type of gameplay it has now.

                            I am new in this forum, and I didn't have time yet to read if anyone requested this:

                            - Sort the weapons alphabetically.

                            I have "only" 135 weapons and its really necessarry when I am in target practise mode to find specific weapon. I can imagine those with more than 200 weapons.

                              Yes, it has been suggested. There was once a large thread discussion on everything that the fans wanted in the game. I'm not sure where it went, but that, among many other ideas, and suggestions, was in there.

                              Sorry for the slow response, these forums haven't had much activity in a while. Usually only get posts when weapons are released, or something big happens. Until then its a grave yard, except that no one cares about the ones buried here enough to ever come and visit, or bring flowers.
