Calcopoly!
« on: March 05, 2014, 08:31:41 am »
For those that might frequent Cemetech, you might have already seen this topic there.


For those that don't know or haven't guessed, this is my take on a Monopoly like game for the graphing calculators. I've redone things so they are more calculator related than what would normally be found in a game of Monopoly. Things like the following:


:: Money is counted in bytes
:: Colors belong to authors, individual properties are projects
:: When you own all the projects of an author, then you can put up 4 beta releases, then the final release (houses and hotel, respectively) for each project
:: Utilities are designated via USB symbol and battery symbol, for connectivity and for power
:: You don't go to jail, your project crashes, if you have a 'get out of jail free' card, this is actually a 'fresh backup of your project' card.


I started this out on Cemetech, and used the members there as a start for this game. For the authors and projects, I've chosen:



Colors (Cemetech edition):

Dark Blue - Iambian: Cadan, E: Sor

Light blue - elfprince: FrogRPG, BattleField 83+, and Croquet

Pink/Purple - merthsoft: TokenIDE, Snake, Block Dude

Orange - benryves: Brass, Fire Track 2, BBC BASIC

Red - KermMartian: DoorsCS, Tetric, Invalid Tangram

Yellow - calc84maniac: Steins;gate, TI-Boy, Chip's Challenge

Green - tifreak8x: Age of Darkness, BTetris, TIFC

Blue -  Patrick Davidson: Pheonix, CMonster

Now, I'm going to go ahead and put this up on here, so maybe some decisions can be made on who gets what colors for the board, and what projects should be featured in this game. So, here's the list again:



Colors (Omnimaga edition) :

Dark Blue - 

Light blue - 

Pink/Purple - 

Orange - 

Red - 

Yellow -

Green -

Blue -  DJ_Omnimaga: Illusait, Ruben Quest

What I'd like from you all is who should go where? What projects shall we post up?  I'd also like to add all fresh names to the board, beyond what I myself am keeping in green. I figured there should be enough of a programmer base here that we should be able to fill the slots up without needing to duplicate others from the other edition. :)


Now, here are some screens of what we have going on:


83+ edition:


CSE edition:


(Please note, the board itself was drawn by myself, the logo was set up by KermM, and Weregoose polished it off. Weregoose also gave other options for the center, found here: http://www.cemetech.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=9996 )

For the 83+, it's not going to be as graphical as the CSE edition, so no spots will show up where the player is and such, because of size constraints of the screen. The picture of it is as far as I've gotten with the game so far for that model.


The CSE version is 'playable' to the point that you can choose how many players you have, can choose your colors, and you can see who goes first by roll of the dice. :) I'll be starting in on the movement of the player for the blocks sometime this weekend, hopefully.


So, thoughts? Opinions? Names/projects? :D

Looks nice. I'd say that one of the blue should be DJ Omnimaga and the projects should of course be Illusiat, Reuben and his other masterpieces. ;)
Also pink for Netham45 obviously.

I could definitely drop DJ there on Blue, no sweat. Does Netham have 3 calc related projects to use as the properties?

I don't know at all for Netham since I barely know him actually. :/

Yeah, see, that wouldn't work very well, since the whole idea of this is to showcase projects and such in a way people will see them and be curious about them to investigate. IF he doesn't have any, then I can't put him on the board :<

Hopefully others will be curious enough to check in on here and offer some suggestions.

I saw this a while ago and I love how it looks, but I didn't know there was a 83+ version until today. Does it use Celtic2CSE or BASIC images?

Also, another idea for the jail would have been Hays games stealing your code, but sadly most people nowadays have no clue who were Hays. :P

Hays was a 'group' that stole code, wrote horrible code, and was just all around jerks about things. And no, don't want to taint Calcopoly with their name. :p

Thanks! Though with the apparent interest levels going currently, there may only be a Cemetech edition. Hopefully more people will see this and offer up suggestions, as I'd love to include other authors and projects in this.

I like the idea a lot! Look forward to seeing it released. Regarding the amount of replies, that might be related to the fact that most users don't (yet) have a CSE.

Oh, and an idea: you could make the railway stations linking programs, because they also transfer stuff? You could make it graph link, TiLP, ti-connect and the nspire linking program. Just an idea :)

There are plenty of people to pick from here:
Quigibo/Runer112: Pyoro, Puyo-Puyo, Axe Parser,
ExtendeD:Ndless, Nleash,Oclua
Builderboy:Zedd Physics Library, Factory, Portal Prelude
Deep Thought:Snakecaster: A 3D Nibbles Game, .Org IDE/Assembler, Fruit Ninja
thepenguin77: The impossible game, truvid, zstart
Xeda: Grammer/Grammer2, Batlib
Matrefeytontias: Jetpack 8x, Axe 3d Tunnel,  Ikaruga X
The Assembly Bandit: Pacman, Frogger, Snake (all 84+C games)
Even though you've already got him listed... Calc84maniac. :P

I'm sure there are others that could be used as well, but there's some off the top of my head.

For the rail roads, I have those as calculators :) 73, 82, 83, 83+, basically. And I'm going to have it as an 83+/84+ game as well, so there will essentially be 4 games :p Once I get these done, I'm contemplating yet another edition, but we'll see how this pans out, first.

Those are indeed excellent suggestions, though what of yourself? You have projects that are calc related as well, right? :)

And since I have calc84 on the Cemetech side of things, I'd like to leave him off this other list. I think I might even remove myself from this list to open up that additional color.

Even though he kind of disappeared, I think assemblybandit deserves a color :)
