Robugs 3D


Robugs are 'robotic bugs' whose behaviour is controlled by user-designed circuits. It will be an educational tool as much a game, and provide a more complex/richer simulation than other similar programs. The project is being written in Java (JDK 1.5/Java3D 1.3).


The circuit editor is complete, and we're working on the robug editor and a 2d (flat) world to start with then moving into 3d after robugs can move around, bump into things etc. See the project page on Sourceforge for further details.
