Making Military-time Progress
Sketched out, on paper, the basics of the military piece. Basically, I'm going to try using some basic algorithms to simulate a tank battalion that goes after goals set by a "military leadership". When the goal is reached (or not), the results are transmitted to a general populous through a news-reel style communique, complete with Great Big Arrows showing progress and movement.
I was drawing this up during a class when a friend said "Hey, are you planning an invasion of Normandy or something?" That's when I knew that the overall graphics were appropriate.
Now, the questions is whether I do this in Netlogo, Processing - or something a little more heavy-duty...
