Scraps is a vehicle combat game where you build your vehicle from parts, and where success lies just as much in designing a well-crafted vehicle as in your combat skills. Design from the chassis up, then pit your creation against humans or AI in a combat arena. When you take out other players, scavenge from their wreckage to repair or upgrade your own vehicle in-game.

Scraps lets you create a vehicle that’s great or a vehicle that sucks. Maybe your vehicle falls over when it corners or doesn't have enough power to fire its weapons – that’s okay. Maybe it doesn't need an engine because it moves by firing its cannons backwards. You decide what you drive.

Your design choices aren't just cosmetic - they're truly functional and at the very least affect the weight and balance of your vehicle. Battle in single-player against the AI, on LAN, or over the Internet. Easily host your own LAN or Internet games. Using the Scraps demo, your friends can join a LAN game even if they don't own the full game.

Currently in development for PC, Mac and Linux. Check out www.scrapsgame.com.

Blog RSS Feed Post news Report abuse Latest News: Scraps v0.5.1.0 – Assist points, Low Gravity mode, game balance, bug fixes

0 comments by Nition on Jul 28th, 2015

You can now get assist points for helping to destroy a vehicle so "kill stealing" is less of an issue. I've been thinking about potentially more complex solutions that would also help direct gameplay, and you can join the discussion here, but this should help for now.

There's also a new Low Gravity game modifier that you can select and apply to any game, and for the next 24 hours or so I'm also running an official Low Gravity game server (the LOW GRAVITY ZONE).

Full changelog:

2015-07 - 0.5.1.0
- Add Low Gravity game option.
- Added "assist" points for score and XP.
- Redesigned SMG to give it a little left/right movement.
- Balance: Increased engine efficiency multiplier a little. Cars with multiple engines will get a little faster.
- Balance: For Laser and Tesla, see Bug Fixes.
- Balance: Reduced Plasma rotate speed.
- Balance: Reduced Plasma and Large Cannon fire rates a little.
- Balance: Reduced container scrap capacity slightly from 2100 to 2000.
- Weapon damage spread stats look bigger, but the calculation has changed, and things now get knocked around a bit less in general.
- Some improvement for "teleporting" at high latency in multiplayer.
- Re-wrote the modal overlay (loading screen) system to poll state instead of reference count. I knew reference counting would be bug prone and lo, it was.
- Chat stays up a bit longer (you can always see recent chat by pressing T as well).
- Chat text and the round timer on the Build screen don't get in the way of each other quite so much.
- Updated fan translations for Russian, Swedish and Danish, and added a new French translation.
- AI players get a little (AI) designation by their name, and their full difficulty setting info on the leaderboard.
- Some changes to collision damage calculations.
- Started putting full-stops at the end of changelog entries.
Bug Fixes:
- Fixed laser and Tesla weapons only draining half the stated power, and laser also doing half damage. Balanced their stats a little after fixing.
- Remove some minor light halo effects due to an old, old Unity engine bug. Thought I had a workaround but apparently not in every situation.
- Fixed player scores not resetting between rounds.
- Fixed scrap and round length settings not applying if the field was still active when Deploy was clicked.
- End Of Round chat font now matches the in-game chat font.
- Fixed minor text misalignment on chat.
- Fixed server list jumping around in the background while entering a password.

Single-player and multiplayer. Single-player is the same gameplay as multiplayer, but against the AI.

It's not moddable at this stage but it's something I'd like to add one day if I can.

An idea similar to this came to my mind today and I'm glad that someone already started developing such a game. Keep up the great job!

@Aavak_ Although if it's worth more than the starting scrap allowance then you'd have to edit it down first. :)

@Aavak_ BTW if you make changes during a match the vehicle is saved in the !Autosave slot - so you can select to respawn with it if you like

@Aavak_ Hey, fantastic intro video. Probably a better tutorial than what I actually have in the game.

@SanatanaMishra It does impact sorting by rating, 'cos unless it's changed recently it puts each category in a group: T.co

@Highsight Thanks! I sent you an email. Let me know if you need anything else.

@manfightdragon Worst/best thing about those is day 2 is often "got up and immediately solved the problem."

Aug 2 2015, 4:04pm

@Nition To clarify, all of T.co redirects to T.co
