I am developing a boat simulation program as part of my thesis to explore wave motions.
This project will be on-going and there will be further stages to the development, which I hope to continue with the successful coder.
For Stage One, I just want an application developed in C/C++ that displays a boat shape on screen. The graphics don't need to be fancy, and the boat shape can be a simple rectangle, to represent the boat.
What I would like is, using the keyboard arrow keys (up, left and right), to be able to direct the movement of this "boat". For example, if I press the up arrow key then the "boat should move up the screen. If I press the right arrow key as well then the model should start to make a right hand turning circle just like a real boat would do if the rudder was place overto the right.
To make the boat start moving I would like to press the "A" key, to make it slow and stop I would like to press the "D" key
Basically I should be able to control the movement of the boat across the screen by using the arrow keys and the "a" and "d" keys.
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.
2) Deliverables must be in ready-to-run condition, as follows? (depending on the nature? of the deliverables):
a)? For web sites or? other server-side deliverables intended to only ever exist in one place in the Buyer's environment--Deliverables must be installed by the Seller in ready-to-run condition in the Buyer's environment.
b) For all others including desktop software or software the buyer intends to distribute: A software? installation package that will install the software in ready-to-run condition on the platform(s) specified in this bid request.
3) All deliverables will be considered "work made for hire" under U.S. Copyright law. Buyer will receive exclusive and complete copyrights to all work purchased. (No GPL, GNU, 3rd party components, etc. unless all copyright ramifications are explained AND AGREED TO by the buyer on the site per the coder's Seller Legal Agreement).
Needs to be coded in c/c++. If graphics are required it needs to be openGL. Executable file needs to be run on a windows XP machine.
