Never heard of tank wars, but from your description it sounds alot like a game called "Nukes3D" the Biggins (a coder from MIT) was working on a while back. His site is at http://biggins.mit.edu/ this game is in DOS, but if it''s similar to what you''re talking about he might give you the source code. Cheers!

heh, thnx for the link, this guy seems to have had a similar idea of what i had in mind, and he did a damn good job of making it a reality, but alas..there is no source, and the game must be registered

If tank wars is what i am thinking it is then it isnt very complicated, why not do a complete re-write: you might even learn something that way!!!!!

I remember that game as Bomb (maybe even Bomb 3D)... anyways would be very cool if someone did a remake in OpenGL, in full 3d and that you can overview the "battlefield" by flying over it ;-) just a couple of thoughts..
