Tanksim need a special engine with the appropriate capabilities. It makes no sense to license a general-purpose engines, they are not intended to simulate anything complicated.

unigen was designed for simulators, all further development will be up to developer once they license, but the base is there.

like how unreal engine 4 has basic stuff for fps games

Nope, this is not enough. Here "arcade physics", ie fundamentally wrong to consider tank mover and suspension work.
This is a typical lack of all "universal" physics engines. Rubber tracks instead of separate tracks, the lack of detail of the landscape, etc. In general, everything should be thrown out and re-do, normally.

It is not free, 5% royalty from gross - it is too high.

Sport car with poor tank skin, lol
Sorry of course, but "such as tanks" on a general-purpose engines look extremely baldly.

I think the folk just starting to ask for a multiplayer mode, more tanks, more battlefield area to get into the real action. Just to get into the real point.

reduce horizon distance to 300-500 meters, reduce area sizes to 500x500 meters, remove all active units except 1 user tank, adding crazy ping pong physics and fog everywhere...

and then yes

if it's done very locally, ie within only 10 meter radius you can see detailed deformation, outside of that simplified deformation, then beyond 100 meters no deformation visible, then there won't be much power issues.

that game won award for cpu threading. also part of reason why it was a smooth game
