OpenSC2K: OpenSC2K – An Open Source remake of Sim City 2000
Sim City + open source = an easy way to spend the larger part of an afternoon messing around on your computer minus the pesky scratched-up CD. Makes me nostalgic for fighting with my siblings over whose turn it was to use the family computer.
Currently a lot remains to be implemented but the basic framework is there for importing and viewing cities. Lots of stuff remains completely unimplemented such as the actual simulation, rendering of many special case tiles and buildings and anything else that exists outside of importing and viewing.
Along with implementing the original functionality and features, I plan to add additional capabilities beyond the original such as larger city/map sizes, additional network types, adding buildings beyond the initial tileset limitations, action/history tracking along with replays and more.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
