Ok, check it out. Would'nt it be awesome if we could customize the look of our tank? We could put little logos on them and pick different color sets (with exception of the team color). I dunno, i thought it might be cool... Anyone else think so? :wink:

it would be even cooler if we had advertisements put on our tanks. a few bucks for the time i play each day (hours) wouldn't hurt probably. smart eh? :roll:

dude, most of the ideas here have been brought up at least twice before. and you can go on ahead and code it if you want it that bad.

Yeah this is a pretty old request. I think they said they would never do it because it would make the game too complex. Plus how many people will end up abusing it and putting goatse on the side of their tanks.

1) noone ever said it would never go in, just noone has ever done it
2) there are ways to make sure images come from a trusted source ( like we do now for textures ).

the tank model just needs to be cleaned up and then it's not hard at all.

Yes, I think little logos would be cool. (colors could definitely confuse who's team you're on unless you want to make purple spotted red or something...)

Reminds me of Halo 2's system of having your own little logos and after awhile people know who you are based off of it. :)
