After being hung up on a coding problem (see ‘Thank you Viv Rajkumar!’) for a number of days we can now show off the new interface which allows us to simultaneously track and display information about all the inhabitants of Dinosaur Island. The status and energy levels for each dinosaur are displayed in real-time in a scrolling list on the right side of the window. Click on a particular animal to get more detailed information.
This interface is used in the program that creates the databases and tests the artificial intelligence routines for Dinosaur Island. Dinosaur Island, itself, will be in 3D.
