Objectives

World of Tanks uses a freemium monetization system that can offer extra vehicle customization options for its users. To treat their fans around the globe, Wargaming often releases various tank styles and emblems dedicated to national events. For instance, to celebrate the start of NFL 99th season the Client decided to realise a distinctive style and emblems for all available tanks named “Touchdown”.

Wargaming entrusted the creation of this and many other unique tank styles and emblems to N-iX Game & VR Studio.

Workflow

The project scope included not only “Special” tank styles but also historically correct camo patterns. Before the start of the production cycle, Wargaming provided our team with a theme and references nearly for every required tank-style.

To achieve a truly unique look of every tank style, our team used procedurally generated seamless textures created with Substance Designer.  This method allowed us to change the texture’s dimensions without losing its quality. To test the look of camouflage patterns on different tanks, N-iX team used custom software provided by Wargaming.

While Client shared his vision for every tank style, our team often had to research the most iconic symbols to create eye-catching emblem or to make sure that performed camouflage was as close to original as it can be.
