Here is a brief breakdown of the map making process for Pico Tanks. Our 3D artist, James, has a dedicated dev blog on the Pico Tanks Discord. So if you want some sneak previews of development, please join our community: https://discord.gg/rBHzEMd

First, our 3D artist models the cliffs.


Adds the floor terrain.


Then the vertex painted rivers are added.


The floor is painted and all the props are placed.

SXSW Gaming was a success! This was our first expo since we reached beta so it gave us a good understanding of our audience and allowed us to get instant feedback from players. Lots of tweaks to be made - new version will be out soon!

Can you please show us a screenshot of that? Pico Tanks shouldn't be on there.

Sorry, it was another tank-based game. If it's a clone you might want to know about it though:

https://flathub.org/apps/details/com.endlessnetwork.tankwarriors

It's actually really dubious, because it's proprietary and I can't find anything about the people who produced it ("Endless Studio")

Whatever that game is I am pretty sure it is just a straight up asset flip of Unitys multiplayer Tank demo. The assets are exactly the same. Undecided

The strongest team prevails! Abilities like the Cannon Turret and Attack Drone really put that extra stress on your enemies.

For a bit of fun we made an AR lens for Snapchat. Right is AR Pico Tank, left is 3D-printed Pico Tank.
If we made more Pico Tanks merch in future, what would you like to see?





To get the lens, scan the code or follow the link to open in Snapchat: https://www.snapchat.com/unlock/?type=SNAPCODE&uuid=3d03a48f3ca042f4ba899f0b06ee33be&metadata=1

The Throwable Repair Pack ability deploys a small repair pack into battle that can be picked up by anyone. How nice of you!




This new ability will be in Pico Tanks Beta Version 10.0 which will be out very soon. You can sign up at https://discord.gg/rBHzEMd

The blue bar around the tank charges up with energy which can be spent on abilities. Some things cost more than others and you definitely need a strategy in place to ensure you use the right abilities at the right time!





What are your favourite abilities? Do you save up for those Airstrikes and Repair Zones or do you prefer to just go crazy with cheaper abilities like the Throwable Repair Pack and Smoke Grenade?

While you're waiting for your friends to finish customizing their tanks for a 3v3 Battle, refine your skills in a 1v1 Showdown match!

We've uploaded the repo of this simple UI rays shader made in Amplify Shader Editor for anyone to use! Hope someone appreciates the share Smiley Have fun!

In this example, we've used this shader for the rays behind some UI in Pico Tanks: Multiplayer Mayhem, and we wanted to share this resource with our community.





This project was built using Unity 2019.1.0f2. The shader is created with Amplify Shader Editor (ASE v1.6.6 rev 00) plugin but you don't need it to run the project, edit or use the shader. ASE will make understanding and editing the shader much easier. http://amplify.pt/unity/amplify-shader-editor/

What is in the project? A shader that generates customizable rays from a single point based on a low resolution image. Here's the repo: https://github.com/PandaArcade/UIRays

The Homing Missile can be a tricky one to avoid!  Thanks to Cooper for his gameplay submission playing 1v1 in the Pico Tanks beta. The whole battle is worth watching:
