Daedalus is an open source engine specialized toward mazes. It allows creating, solving, displaying, and analyzing mazes of many types and algorithms. It features a scripting language that can access and drive all its features and settings. Therefore "Daedalus" refers to both the program itself and the Daedalus programming language it implements. Daedalus is architected around bitmaps. Daedalus has a simple ray casting rendering mode that's defined by a list of bitmaps: Where blocks are placed is stored in one bitmap, the color of each block is in another, the height of each block is in a third, textures to display on the sides of blocks are in other bitmaps, etc. The Daedalus scripting language uses macros and events. Events call macros and are fired by the program when things happen, such as when the mouse is moved or clicked, or when you move the viewing point (e.g. your character) from one location to another. Daedalus scripts are plain text, and easily modified in text editors.

About Hunger Games Simulation (Daedalus) with 2 comments by Cruiser1 on Sep 4th, 2014


The new version 3.0 of The Hunger Games Simulation is downloadable here, and includes the following additions over the previous version 2.5 that was released in October 2013:

  • New Landscapes: Play in a "Catching Fire" style clock arena. Climb over rolling hills, and experience a gradual day/night cycle. Head downhill or dig deep enough and you can find water. Play in mixed terrain arenas, such as half sandy desert and half rocky wasteland.
  • New Customizations: Set number of Districts (1-13), and number of tributes per District (e.g. play games with over 200 opponents). Assign names to tributes (e.g. "Katniss"  instead of "District 12 Female"), and select hairstyles. Try out a special wraparound torus arena that goes on forever.
  • New Items: Blowtorch weapon can be used to dismantle the Cornucopia walls, burn down trees, or melt unwanted items. Guns and grenades are powerful weapons very rarely available from sponsors. Armor reduces damage from enemy hits, and nightvision goggles allow seeing in darkness. You can even reuse sponsor gift parachutes to glide through the air.
  • New Enemies: Some trees contain "tracker jacker" wasp nests. Chop down the tree and they'll sting whoever's nearby making them hallucinate! Feast events draw remaining tributes back together to fight. Rebel against the Capitol, and escape from the arena (if you can figure out how. :)
