  • M18 Hellcat Final (please read description! A little more mobile friendly) 3.4 years ago

    This saved me a lot of work! It’s often not easy to remove a lot of detail and keep the same functionality (connections are a bit wonky, and the turret got stuck a lot), but it looks like you managed it! Nice work!

    Also, I appreciate the huge effort you’re going through to make sure that credit is given— a lot of players don’t do that. Don’t feel bad about accepting upvotes! You’ve put work in, and you should get credit for that.

    @BMilan
    Thanks for the upvote/spotlight! I used EternalDarkness's Armored Games map for both of the gifs— it's a great map for testing that sort of thing, and it's also one of the only maps that hasn't had its textures obliterated since 1.8

  • Panzer IV H 3.4 years ago

    This is a fantastic tank, especially for a first build! The detail is great, and the fact that it has real suspension is something I've not seen a lot of other people put effort into— nice work!


    I don't know if you were able to make this with the benefit of modding (XML or otherwise), but if that option is available to you, it'll greatly increase what you're able to do, as far as tanks go. There are two downloadable mods that are absolutely essential to players looking to build replicas— those mods are Overload, which provides in-game XML modding for selected parts, and Fine Tuner, which gives much more flexibility in nudging, rotating, and scaling parts. Another good one is Colour Editor, which allows you far greater options in paint colors. Hope these help!

  • New-Ardennes Republic RADAR tower 3.5 years ago

    @engineer40k Foxhole is one of those games which I wish more people knew about, even over here in the US— this is actually the first time I’ve seen someone else who plays it outside of the game itself, so I had to mention it!

  • New-Ardennes Republic RADAR tower 3.5 years ago

    Nice build— I don’t see a lot of ground structures on here!

    Also, the logo looks a lot like the Warden faction logo from Foxhole, which is a really nice touch

    @striker0911 Check out the successors, there should be one in there.

    @DepressedTortoise I’d be glad to help, as soon as I have more free time! Should be in about four days; I’ll let you know

  • M18 Hellcat 3.4 years ago

    @DuckMint Thanks! I’ve always noticed that a lot of the tanks here don’t handle properly (especially with suspension travel), so I put a lot of effort into making sure I got it as correct as I could

  • Panzer IV H 3.4 years ago

    @Mrshape No problem! Additionally, I don’t believe fine tuner is associated with XML modding— it just provides a better nudging system (along with so much more), so you should be able to use it without crashing the game!

  • Any tips for reducing lag? 3.4 years ago

    @BogdanX Thanks for the tip! I've set it properly for all of the detail pieces, and it has somewhat improved the lag, although it's definitely still noticeable. As an aside, do you know if disabling aircraft collisions for overlapping parts also decreases lag?

  • Any tips for reducing lag? 3.4 years ago

    Thanks for the suggestions and compliments, everyone! Here's an update on what I've tried so far, and a bit of clarification.


    First thing: I don't believe that raw part count is responsible for the lag— I have a few other vehicles with 200+ more parts than this one, and they run buttery smooth on my device.


    Second thing: Reducing settings doesn't seem to help much either. It gives a big bump to fps when driving forward on level terrain, but as soon as I start going up/down hills or over rough terrain, I get the same lag I had before.


    Third: I'm in the process of setting calculateDrag to false on every single part in the tank, but it's slow going, using just a combination of the overload mod and copy/pasting it into the XML file. I've finished doing the equipment (I've also set disableAircraftCollisions to true on everything I've done as well), and it does seem to have helped it to a degree. Does anyone know a way to add the setting to every part simultaneously in the XML file?


    EDIT: Lastly, with the new version of Unity in 1.8, it seems to work amazingly smooth in the beta. All lag disappears whatsoever! In the event that I can't get the lag fixed, I'll just hold off on publishing it until the release of 1.8.

    Again, thanks for the tips!

  • Flying(ish) Semi Truck 3 months ago

    @Tanksfly9847
    Good to know. Do you make a habit of sharing your remarkable critiques in 7 year-old posts?

  • M18 Hellcat 3.3 years ago

    @Vampface Thank you!

  • Kumamatanga Archipelago 3.3 years ago

    @MisterT Doesn't seem to have worked— I am noticing that the mod file that's left is only 791MB, instead of the 855MB download file. I'll try redownloading; my computer does odd things every now and then.

    Update: It worked! Looks like the issue was just in the way my computer unpacked the mod the first time.

  • Kumamatanga Archipelago 3.3 years ago

    @MisterT I can try redownloading it. For some reason, it seems to have loaded into my mod folder as two different mods. I don't know how that'd affect textures, but it's worth a shot

  • Kumamatanga Archipelago 3.3 years ago

    @MisterT Looks like it— here's another screenshot.

  • Kumamatanga Archipelago 3.3 years ago

    I've found an interesting bug— not sure what the cause is, but all of the terrain seems to be shiny and reflective. Image here. I'll disable all other mods and see if that fixes it.

    Update: Didn't work. Seems like all non-standard textures are not loading, including trees and decorative features.

  • M18 Hellcat 3.3 years ago

    @ChromeGamer25 Thanks! I was surprised that the part count ended up being so low— it's probably a result of the fact that my computer is 8 years old and won't run anything much higher than this

  • t-80UD [Platinum special part 1] 3.3 years ago

    I’m amazed that this can actually run smoothly on my phone. Thanks for the shoutout!

  • Map Mod Suggestions 3.3 years ago

    @DuckMint Fantastic! I’ve always loved that type of landscape, and to see it in game would be amazing! Looking forward to it!

  • Map Mod Suggestions 3.3 years ago

    I personally would really like to see more maps made for Player vs. AI tank battles, with a few preset AA tanks to test out ground combat.
    That being said, I have a landscape in mind. It's a small town nestled in a valley between the foothills of the Balkan Mountains, with 10 to 20-foot rolling hills filling out the valley floor, crisscrossed by thin hedges. For a comparable example in google maps, the coordinates 41.928164, 21.062812 should be a decent representation of that type of landscape.

  • Centurion FlaKpanzerVII 3.3 years ago

    @GeneralOliverVonBismarck No problem! It was definitely a fun vehicle to run with :)

  • Centurion FlaKpanzerVII 3.3 years ago

    Not bad! I could definitely tell right away that it’s a centurion, and for a 400 part build, the necessary details are all there! I don’t know if this is a fictional mishmash or a real vehicle (I know a lot about tanks, but I’m less familiar with SPAAs), but the build is believable enough that I can’t tell without looking it up on Google.

    As for functionality, everything works great— the gun goes exactly where it should at a reasonable pace, and the track wheels are nice and bouncy (so many people insist on making their tank suspension hard as a rock). The only issue I noticed was a slight drift to the right when driving forward. Probably caused by a missed engine connection, a traction error, or some other small oversight.

    Overall, very nice work!

  • K.Corp PRT-20 Berserk 3.3 years ago

    I am in absolute disbelief at the fact that the night vision actually works spectacularly, even at 23:00 during stormy weather— fantastic work!

  • M18 Hellcat 3.3 years ago

    @QingyuZhou Thank you! It was really tedious to get them to work right, so I’m glad that they’re appreciated!

  • M18 Hellcat 3.4 years ago

    @cedblox332 Thanks! I started out as an iOS player, so I know the pain of not being able to use a cool creation because it used modded parts. Because of that, I try and make sure that all of my creations can be used by anyone who wants to download them, which means that I can only use vanilla parts

  • M18 Hellcat 3.4 years ago

    @ChiChiWerx Thank you!

  • M18 Hellcat 3.4 years ago

    ?

  • M18 Hellcat 3.4 years ago

    @hobbitfrog Mobile-friendly version should be coming within a week or so, depending on how busy I am— in the meantime though, you’re more than welcome to make a version of your own!

  • M18 Hellcat 3.4 years ago

    @AdlerSteiner Thanks, that means a lot! I’m very pleased with the way it turned out, and I’m just happy that other people enjoy it too!

  • M18 Hellcat 3.4 years ago

    @Zanedavid Thanks! I tend to leave out a lot of the tiny details to cut back on parts, but I was surprised at how low it ended up being!

  • Paradise Island 3.4 years ago

    All trees seem to have lost their textures since 1.8— not sure if that's across all maps and devices, but hopefully, it's fixable! This is one of my favorite maps, and I'd love to see it back the way it was.

  • M18 Hellcat 3.4 years ago

    @Tank6376 No special ammo, just an XML-modded wing gun that does loads of extra damage. All of the other gun effects were done with modded wing guns, too.

  • M18 Hellcat 3.4 years ago

    @Destroyerz117 Thanks! It was a bit of a nightmare to put together, with all of the double (and sometimes triple) connections that had to be made via XML, but I'm really happy with the way it turned out!

  • M18 Hellcat 3.4 years ago

    @metallicplanes Second map is the Simple Race Track map— it's had its lighting messed up a bit since 1.8, but otherwise, it has a very nice landscape for getting realistic pictures, with lots of ground cover and foliage. Third map is Paradise Island. It's very realistic, with a nice bumpy topography and lots of trees. Unfortunately, since 1.8, all the trees have turned pink; it took me a while to get a screenshot without any.
    Hope this helps!

  • M18 Hellcat 3.4 years ago

    @CptJacobson Whoops! I didn’t put quite as much effort into the front part of the breech assembly (i.e. the cradle and recoil cylinders), since most of it would end up being obscured by the turret wall itself— looks like I missed it!

  • M18 Hellcat 3.4 years ago

    @Killjoy876 Thanks! It took a long time to even find a decent top-down picture of the turret— that was probably one of the hardest parts

  • M18 Hellcat 3.4 years ago

    Thanks for the upvotes, everyone!

  • Troop Transport Challenge - RESULTS 3.4 years ago

    Wow, I just now found this! Thanks for the recognition and for putting on a fantastic contest! (Even if I’m an idiot and didn’t find the results until half a month late)

  • Bismarck class Battleship mod. May 1940 3.4 years ago

    My decade-old computer could never hope to run this, but this is by far the best-looking battleship I've seen on the site! Really nice work!

  • Any tips for reducing lag? 3.4 years ago

    @DemonSniper8 It's all integrated, unfortunately— the computer is 8 years old as well, so it's definitely showing its age at this point

  • Any tips for reducing lag? 3.4 years ago

    @DemonSniper8 I'm on a mac unfortunately, so no changing power settings :(
    Thanks though!
    It'll be a little bit before I'm at a point where I can release it, even privately, but if I haven't fixed it by then, I'd be glad to have you give it a go!

  • Any tips for reducing lag? 3.4 years ago

    @ThePilotDude Weirdly enough, it works way better in 1.8 than 1.7! All lag seemed to disappear when I played it on a device with the beta installed.

  • Simple Tank Chassis 3.4 years ago

    @Pilothouston5 Lol, thanks! I rarely ever post anything (the double post I did a couple days ago almost never happens), so it’s entirely understandable that I haven’t quite made it yet, but I’m definitely getting closer! Slowly, at least.

  • Simple Tank Chassis 3.4 years ago

    @ColonelStriker I tried to make it as fun and sturdy as possible, since theM18 Hellcat in real life has a reputation for being the quickest, most maneuverable tank in WWII!

  • Repair damage in-game! 3.4 years ago

    @CrazyCatZe Alright, I’ll see what I can do

  • Repair damage in-game! 3.4 years ago

    @CrazyCatZe When you say smaller, are you referring to the bullet size or the gun itself?

  • Repair damage in-game! 3.4 years ago

    @CrazyCatZe Any preference for RoF, tracer color, or velocity?
