Description:
Tread Marks is an Off-Road Battle Tank Racing and Combat game. Unlike most off-road racing games, in Tread Marks you can actually put holes and scorch marks in the terrain, which last for as long as the race does and don't hurt performance. With a suitably powerful weapon, you can even dig yourself a new canyon, or level a significant chunk of the map!
The terrain engine is a binary-triangle tree based dynamic view dependant Level of Detail height field renderer, taking complete advantage of fast 3D hardware accelerators, and allowing total run-time modification of the landscape. The desired level of detail can be adjusted on the fly to suit the performance of the system running the game, and the desired frame rate of the player.
Features included in the full game:

Totally destroyable landscape, with tank tread marks, small craters, large craters, trenches, nuclear blast craters, and even dirt-depositing weapons that add lumps and hills to the track.
20 different tank models to choose from, including 11 Steel Tanks featuring turbo-charged versions of the M1-Abrams and T-72, and 9 smooth skinned Liquid Tanks that will blow your mind.
23 different weapons and power ups, including 120mm shells, rapid-fire missiles, homing missiles, concussion missiles, flame throwers, plasma guns, plasma mines, air strikes, machine guns, chain guns, lasers, multi-fire missiles, diamond tipped ram drills, long range artillery missiles, cruise missiles, dirt balls, nuclear missiles, matter missiles, mass drivers, and the ultimate Evil Incarnate gun.

Easy customizability, allowing non-programmers to tweak settings, change images, add new tanks and weapons, design new landscapes, etc.
Booming 3D positional battlefield sounds.
In-game soundtrack featuring 11 professionally produced songs totalling over 57 minutes of music.
Full 3D hardware acceleration through OpenGL, taking advantage of Multi-Texture capable hardware for better performance.
Multiple single-player game play modes including instant races, ladder racing, and destruction derby style deathmatches against computer controlled tanks.
Networked racing and deathmatching, including one-click Internet game finding.
Accessible to the newbie, the average gamer, and the die-hard gamer.
Lots of fun to play. :)

Additional Info
Here is Tread Marks, the open sourced Tank Racer.

This game is a Linux port of the Windows game that has been open sourced (it was a commercial game).
It use gl4es for graphic, and can be a bit intensive, so you may need to go in the Graphic options of the game and lower the details.

The nubs are setup as Joystick on Left and Mouse on Right, Left/Right clicks are on the shoulder buttons.
You can change default nub assignment by modifying the 2 files ".leftnub" and ".rightnub" in the appdata/treadmarks/ folder.

You can find a video of the gameplay on a gigaherz Pandora by Ingoreis here: https://youtu.be/GdZB0muPOB4
