Development Status #80

Dear Mechanics!

Welcome to our eighty Development Status update.
Let’s get straight to business.


Situation Report:

Due to few  major bugs reported in current demo version on Steam, with this development status we are going to update demo version to 0.9.44. If you encounter critical errors, please reset the data of the game by using the SupportPanel. If this does not help, write us about the bug 😉

Tank Mechanic Simulator is still under QA verification process. Be patient 😉


Art Progress:

We’ve already had a chance to show this tank on discord, but he didn’t have his five minutes of fame in our development posts yet. It’s time to make up for it. 😉

Development Status #79

Dear Mechanics!

Welcome to our seventy-nine Development Status update.
Let’s get straight to business.


Situation Report:

Another tank for the game is being implemented. Amazing PzKpfw. V Panther Ausf. A! Here are some in-game screenshots.

Code Progress:

During last few months we’ve sent few builds to you and PlayWay testers. This gave us more time to fix the game as we’re getting close to release.

Right now we’re working on expanding the contracts/job system, as well as implementing story contracts.

The purpose of story contracts is to, as suggested by our audience, introduce the game to the player more subtly and slowly than before. New type of contracts are going to be more specific in their tasks.

Example:

  • previously, each repair contract would differ only in tank mark and the % of required repairs
  • now, a sample contract: Please assemble the tracks of my KV-1, as well as renovate the engine. Another thing, fill the oil and run a test run drive to check if everything works.

Another thing the coding department is adding, are save files and Steam Cloud support. This is going to take at least a week or two, we’re going to report when this milestone is ready.

Development Status #73

Dear Mechanics!

Welcome to our seventy-third Development Status update.
Let’s get straight to business.


Art Progress:

We wrote a nice PDF with instructions of how to make Custom Assets and how to put them to the game.

With this manual you will learn how to prepare files such as tank camouflage, decals, posters to your warehouse which can be used in Customization Panel.

Also you can learn how and where to put your own audio files like music to be played in the Radio.

This PDF Manual as well as attached files will be stored in same place as your game is installed with next demo build update. But you can preview it right now!

Download TMS Custom Assets PDF v0.1

From the new in-game stuff we have improved the layout in the mailbox.

For easier reading we added different colors for example for finished, active or failed contracts.

One of the new things is also the ability to hide the legend.


Code Progress:

Last week wasn’t very busy – getting back to work after Easter is a hard job. We’ve made good progress to clean reported bugs, yet we still need at least a week.
