Air Traffic Controller
(a game inspired by a Linux Journal article)
At its current state, the game has a main menu in which one can choose whether he wants to play a single player, or a multi player game, in addition to quitting the program. The quitting functionality works, and selecting single player game takes him to a new game. A new game consists of a background, which is the navigation map. At this moment the command parsing routines are virtually non-existent, and therefore one cannot do much more than the heading and altitude of the planes.
Due to lack of time, I cannot really invest the time needed to really
develop this game. If you are interested, drop me a note, and I'll let you
take over the maintainership.
You'll need Python
(I use 2.3 or 2.4 on my boxes) and the Python SDL binding known as Pygame
. This program is developed on Debian
Linux, but was also successfully run on Windows XP with Python 2.3.
Some people have requested screenshots (people just love screenshots...interesting), so here they are! It doesn't look like much at the moment, but that's mostly because of the lack of good background image. If you want to help, let me know and I will tell you what you can help with. :-)
