I once programmed a swarm simulation as a project for a course I attended. You can set various parameters of the swarm and introduce a predator which can try to eat inidividuals of the swarm. You then can set a bunch of escape strategies. This was pretty much fun when I wrote it.

Just uploaded it to my bitbucket repository in case anyone is interested.


My app with a very similar goal (predators & prey), but C++ with OpenGL :)


I remember decoupling the simulation speed from graphics rendering speed (aka frame rate) and AI thinking speed was a lot of fun!

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
