Introducing the UC Robotics In the Zone Field Simulator!
UC Robotics is looking to start off the year with a bang so we started working on a field simulator program which is similar to the scoring app but will allow teams to hopefully help plan strategy easily with an simple to use drag and drop interface which includes automatic scoring.
By right clicking on a movable or stationary goal, you can also place a number of cones at once, which will remove that number from the field at the same time. To descore, enter a negative number after right clicking to remove a designated number of cones, or click the descore mode at the bottom right to drag cones off the goals. We’ve added options for main competition, skills, and VEXU ruling also so hopefully this program will be useful for everyone on here!
We’re intending on adding much more capabilities to this, not just a basic scorer, so keep an eye out for more to come in future.
UC Robotics is a new VEXU team based at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand and we’re looking forward to competing with you all at worlds next year Feel free to check out our FB page (click my signature) and we’re working on a website to be released soon too. Good luck to everyone for the season!
The program has been slightly tweaked for better compatibility with mono, and should run smoothly (though it pretty much worked as-is).
It is also now distributed as a standalone .exe file, the original post will be updated shortly.
To run with mono on mac/linux, you must first download and install the right version of Mono for your operating system (http://www.mono-project.com/download/), and then run/open the .exe file with Mono. I only tested this on linux, but it should work on Mac.
Still, a browser-based solution may be useful to some users, especially as it means they wont have to download/install anything.
