PART 2, StoryBoard, Due: Tuesday, Nov 19 - beginning of class - includes partner's name.
PART 3, Virtual World and Html, Due: Thursday, Nov 21 - 11:59pm

You may work with one other student.
If you decide to work with a partner, you must submit your partner's name
and list your partner on
your storyboard. Then turn in one storyboard and one world.
I must know
if you are using a partner, and who the partner is.
Working with a partner means you should meet together when writing
If you choose to work alone, you may talk to other students in the
course about your design and for ideas, but you are to write the complete
Alice program by yourself.
You may receive help from the Professor, UTA's or TA.
These parts must be done in order! (Part 1 first, then Part 2,
then Part 3, then Part 4).
The Problem: Requirements
- Create an interactive game or interactive story. That means
you must have events!
- Instructions for playing the game or navigating the story
must be displayed in the world at the beginning or as they are needed
during the game or story.
- Your program should be
well designed and use many functions and/or methods, each with a designated
purpose and a comment.
- You must have at least one scene change and one camera change other
than the scene change.
- You must use either an array or list somewhere in your world. If it
doesn't fit in with what you plan to do, then use it as an intro or finish
to your world.
- See the tutorial on Texture mapping. You must create an object in your
world that is created using some texture mapping. You should write a note
in the readme file saying which object you texturized.
- The presentation must be nice. 20% of Part 2's grade is on presentation.
- For this assignment, you will turn in your world on the submit form
on the CompSci 94 web page and
have an html page describing your world (how to play the game or
navigate the story) linked to from your CompSci 94 web page. In addition to
putting this html page off your CompSci 94 web page, you will also turn it
in, including your picture files.
- All worlds must use appropriate material. No profanity, nudity,
strong violence or anything else inappropriate.
- If you use music, your world will get large fast. Only use
small clips from songs and play them over and over if you want. Note
that you should not use a clip longer than 30 seconds as that is a
copyright violation. You can use
audacity to clip a sound if you want. You could also record short
sounds if you want. This is optional.
Part 1 (1 pt): Submit whether or not you have a partner by November 12
You must let me know if you have a partner or not by November 12.
this google form to let me know your partner's name or that you do
not have a partner.
Part 2: (3 pts): Due November 19 in class

Your storyboard should have the following:
- Name of partner if you plan to use one (only turn in one storyboard
with both names on it).
- You should have at least four scenes (and no more than 10) with a
picture (sketch), list of objects and a written description of what happens
in the scene.
- Your storyboard should include a description of several
functions or methods that you plan to write.
Part 3 (20 pts): Due Nov 21, 11:59pm
Implement your design and create an Alice world. Be sure your
animation has all the requirements listed above.
This part will be turned in on the web submit page on the CompSci 94
webpage. Submit the world along with a README file and your web page files.
PLEASE NOTE: Your README file must document the requirements
for the assignment. For example tell whether you use an array or list, and
what you used it for so the grader can find it. Explain which object has
the texture mapping, etc.
If you have a partner, only one of you needs to turn it in.
Make sure both names are
listed as a comment in your world (first and last names).
Be sure to include a README file with both names, how long you worked on the
assignment and names of anyone you received help from.
You must also create a web page describing your world with at least
two snapshots of your worlds. If you have a partner, you can create one
web page and both link to it. In addition, you will also turn in your
web page and associated files (figures that the web page refers to).
Name your alice world your "lastname-assign7". For example if your
lastname is Smith, then name your alice world smith-assign7.a2w.
Put both last names if you have a partner, smith-jones-assign7.a2w.
Include both your names in a comment in myFirstMethod.
Create a text file called README.txt to include a comment with your
name and partner's name, how long you worked on the
assignment and names of anyone you received help from. Also include
if your world was created on a Mac or a PC.
In addition, turn in a copy of your assignment 7 web page
(.html file) and copies of the figures that your web page displays.
(Note you are submitting your html page and also putting it up on the web,
linked from your CompSci 94
Upload all these files and submit them OR put them in a folder, zip
the folder and upload the .zipped folder.
Part 4 (6 pts): DEMO - during class
You must explain and demo your animation during class.
We will vote on the best
interactive game or story and there will be fabulous prizes.
