Some comments and feedback here would be appreciated.

This is just a spinoff from the original Battle Tanks map and it's only meant as a fun mod with super weapon features not found in the original. The league feature in this map has been removed. However this map is recommended for Ultra Rush 30k or Insane Rush 50k play.

    Sorry, but I don't release open source of the map which I don't have permission from the original author to do so.

    As for the open source I used, you find it here: Battle Tanks 7.55 Open Source

    Released a new version, and imported a new tank :D

    Steam Fortress - The Vapourizer by General Frank (+Rep given)

    I called the tank Battle Fortress ingame. It has 3 combat damage abilities, made for pure pwnage. This tank is very high class and expensive, and even able to intimidate Titan as well.



    Also the new version has several balance changes ingame and moving some tanks priceclasses. The most shocking is probably Hunter and Guard, they are much more expensive now. Also Gazlow tank has been nerfed (yeah General Frank made that one too).

    Also SWCP's has super weapon timers now. Support powers are AI controlled. There is a secret way to indirectly control where it fires :cool: ....

    New version, 1.23. Unfortunately I cannot host the map tp test the changes cuz for some reason my modem won't open ports even if I forwarded the ports. I think my modem is kinda messed up.

    The most noticeable change is that you gain 50 hp pr level regardless of what tank you pick, instead of 1% of max hp.

    If you use an AT&T 2Wire router, I feel your pain.

    I picked up a version of this on battle.net and found it amazing. -am was an amazing advent, and that coupled with the artillery control item creates a WMD combination... I played a few rounds of 5v5 using AIs, and they all lasted about 30 seconds, then suddenly wiped each other out with the combined firepower of about 4-6 simultaneus artillery barrages... amazingly fun destruction scenario. The artillery is one of the best features of the map. I haven't noticed the AI problem yet, but maybe I just haven't played enough of the newer versions...
    TKF, I think you may underestimate your skill at some things.

    Well the artillery is make from a smart combination of dummy usage with "cluster rocket" and "fan of knives" skills clones + triggering.

    I though this could fit into the "insane" theme so I added it.

    Nah it's the Thompson SpeedTouch 546T. I think I need a new modem.

    1. The AI tanks will not buy nonweapon items (f.ex. repair robots, hulls), while the AI in the more recent BT maps (f.ex. 8.60) will buy just about any item.
    2. A bug with the Strategic Weapon CPs:
    When the strategic CPs start, they are under the control of "Player 13", the nonexistant hostile AI. What should happen (because it did happen in some of the versions before 1.25) is when the guarding Laser Tower is destroyed, the killing team receives control of the Strategic CP. Here's the problem: on the Artillery Control Strategic CP (in the southeast corner of the map) does not come under one team's control when the laser is destroyed. It remains under the control of "Player 13", and what's more, CAN NOT BE CAPTURED BY EITHER TEAM. The capture trigger, timer, and alert start, but when the timer ends the CP does not change hands. This is a notable problem, but I'm pretty sure it's just a broken trigger, and therefore not too big a problem to fix. (I hope.)

    First, I don't know how to improve the AI. It was premade by the original mapper and I don't understand JASS.

    Second, that bug should be fixed. Capturing Strategic CP's does work 99% of the cases.


    Changelog
    1.30
    Reduced the Motherships hp from 32000 to 29000 (correct hp values for air tanks)
    Missile Silo does now create a tower ruin upon death
    Missile Silo can now prevent players from capturing a CP
    The Missile Silo is automatically controlled by the force when a player leaves or is afk
    Increased the upgrade cost of silo from 2000 to 2500
    Reduced the missiles hp from 3000 to 1000
    Missiles get more hp pr armor upgrades
    Missiles evasion reduced to 50% from 65%
    Missile is now immune to player weapons, but not abilities.
    Slightly changed the missile silo mana values (to prevent abuse)
    Updated the gameplay constants info about attacks types
    Changed hero attack into fire attack
    Napalm Tower does now do fire attack instead of siege attack
    In -st mode, the force does have 2 missile silos
    Added 3 new consumable items: Napalm airstrike, orbtial strike and artillery strike.


    The new version contain mostly balancing. Also it features consumable super weapons for a low price, only available at the artillery factory.

    If this map started as a breakoff from one of the slightly older BT maps (was it in the 8.4X versions, or was it in one of the 8.5X versions?), then can't you just get back in contact with Exilus5 or Bob666, and ask them for the configuration of the newer BT AIs? Or just talk with one of them and give them a deprotected version of the map so they can make the modification themselves, then reprotect it and fire off that update?

    {EDIT}
    I played another 3v3 round with AIs on 1.30, and when the team 2 AIs destroyed the Multi-Laser tower protecting the southern Artillery Control strategic CP, it remained under the control of Player 13.
    I think the problem could be in the -st gameplay mode, because i was playing with that mode active.

    Also: a minor bug:
    The AA Gun weapon at the center weapon shop states that it deals 300 damage, 1000 DPS, and the upgrade adds +300 damage.
    When I upgraded one, the new stats still said 300 damage, 1000 DPS.
    I do not know if the actual weapon's damage was modified, but it's something to check.

    Similarly, check the stats on the parallel weapon, Bombs (the weapon that should have the same DPS and range as the AA Gun, but be for air->ground). If there is a problem in one, there's the chance for a problem in the other.

    Well, it shouldn't be any glitches capturing the strategic CP's. I've to see on that one. When a player kills the tower, the CP should go under the control of the forces control.


    Also the info about upgrading AA gun is wrong. Instead of damage, it should be 300+ range.

    thank you for the AA Gun clarification

    As for the strategic CPs, i'll take a screenshot in my next game it glitches up, and send that to you as an attachment here.

    I'm not here to harp about rights to edit or anything of the sort. But I am here to warn you. I know that the original battle tanks has ceased to work since patch 1.24, seeing how yours is just a spin-off I'm assuming it doesn't work either. The warning: if it no longer works, you MUST find someway or someone to fix it for the patch (we can't just let Btanks die out).

    Just assuming eh?

    Both Battle Tanks 8.62 and Battle Tanks Insane 1.30 works in 1.24. Please verify before posting.



    I'll release 1.31 hopefully as soon as 1.24b is released. The main reason is that my map protection tool don't work with 1.24 version maps due to some major changes blizzard did in 1.24.

    I apologize, I had 8.61c when the patch came out, and I didn't know about the new version (Battle Tanks wont' show up in my search anymore, perhaps it mysteriously disappeared), considering Battle Tanks is one of my favorite maps and the first map I found out didn't work from patch, I was really worried that it wouldn't be updated and, therefore, lost forever.

    New version!

    Changelog
    1.31b
    Added a new structure: Shield Generator
    New feature: Healing rate is now shown on tanks
    Reworked the shield battery item. It does now work as a minor shield generator.
    Reduced the costs of super weapon consumables
    Missile Silo upgrade cost increased from 2500 to 4000
    Missile Silo total mana and mana regeneration has been increased by 6 times
    Cruise missile mana cost also increased by 6 times
    Effect of upgraded battery into Missile Silo reduced from 220% to 40%
    Cruise missile damage increased by 50%
    Cruise missile does now half damage against structures
    Cruise missile evasion reduced from 50% to 33%
    Fixed a mana cost bug with the root strike ability
    Reduced the cost on Jet Thruster from 2500 to 2250
    Minor bugfixes and balance changes...



    The missile silo was unbalanced when an upgraded battery was put into it. The silo does now cost more and cuz of that it does more damage. However the batteries affects it much less now and it's a waste of money putting a battery inside it now.


    The other major addition to this game is the shield generator which is a major addition. When you conquer a cp, it's way better than a bunker, but cost-wise it's better to choose a bunker when you cannot afford.


    Shield Generator
    Can be built on a ruin. Costs 3500 gold.
