Your Tanki Online was an artwork-based contest centered around designing your own, customized interface for Tanki Online. Players had to redesign the UI (User Interface Icon info.png) of the game in 1 (or more, if they want) of 4 categories, Lobby, Garage, In-Game, and/or Total Concept. The winners were judged based on functionality, look, and consistency.

The following categories could be redesigned:

  • Lobby. The "Lobby" is the place player select their next battle, chat with others and read announcements.
  • Garage. The "Garage" is about preparing and selecting the equipment and supplies for battles.
  • In-Game. "In-Game" is all about the battle, the supply cooldowns, how full is the magazine, who is alive, who is destroyed, etc.
  • Total Concept. The bonus category "Total Concept" is about how well all three submissions work together.

Some examples of a valid submission are as follows:

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Is this a contest officially organized by the developers to gather ideas for interface improvement?
A: To clarify this is a contest solely organized by the Community Helpers, they are not in contact with any developers regarding changes to the game as a result of this contest.


Q: What kind of artwork is expected?
A: The contest was intended for digital art only, in other words, Photoshop (or alternative applications) and edited screenshots. But we may also accept hand-drawn art if it is of an exceptional quality. If you are not good in drawing or editing screenshots, you could also consider to create a webpage or even an application and submit a screenshot of that.


Q: Is it permitted to replace the Logos and Icons (assets) of the current interface?
A: Absolutely, using new or better suiting assets is a good way to create a well rounded user interface. Assets, like Icons and Logos should be selected with the style of your application in mind. For example if you decide to create a User Interface in Material Design, you should take advantage of simple icons instead of using text to indicate what the control is doing.
