Project 1

CS 482/681, Dr. Lawlor

The idea for this first project is for you to write a complete end-to-end simulator of something you're interested in: similar to the homeworks, but in more depth, and on a topic of your choice. 
  1. Describe what you want to build in-class on Friday, February 13.
  2. Give me rough draft code (working, but not complete) on Friday, February 27.
  3. Present your progress in-class during the week of March 9-13th.  
  4. Turn in a final draft after spring break on Friday, March 27.  This version should work completely, and look good--carefully prepared textures, a nice user interface, etc.

Possible Topics (or pick your own!)

Choose any one of these topics, or pick your own topic. Remember you have about a month to finish everything, so keep it simple! If these seem too big, feel free to simplify them in your "topic" discussion.
Note that the above links are chosen purely on the basis of visual coolness; better links explaining the above techniques undoubtably exist!
