Do you want to develop your own tank? Do you also want to use that tank in battle? If so, you’re going to have a blast playing Sprocket Tank Design. A new update was just launched that introduces the new era switching feature. It also improves game performance across the board.

What’s New?

The biggest new feature is the ability to switch between different war eras. For instance, if you want to develop a tank from World War I, you can use that tank in a different era, say, in World War II. There is also a new cheat that lets you switch eras in certain scenarios.

When it comes to tank design, there are new HD textures and variations for the riveted applique panels. You can also spruce them up by adding new decals, such as the Japanese flag, the Polish Emblem, or some variation of the Red Star, among others.

Changes and Optimizations

The game may get bogged down, especially when you start applying a lot of tank parts. Fortunately, the developers have added optimizations to improve the game’s overall performance.

Some welcome changes can also be expected. For instance, the current era is now attached to every tank blueprint. This means that tanks made in an earlier war era can be used in later wars.

The brake mechanics have also improved, and should look and feel less twitchy now. The game has also introduced a new engine system where you will feel more resistance, especially when you’re nearing the tank’s max RPM. This should tell you when to switch gears correctly to achieve maximum speed.
