The Soar Project


Project Status: Inactive

The purpose of the Soar project is to help newcomers start to participate in WorldForge and learn some C++ in the process. Soar will be a simple, text based eagle simulator. The objective of the game is to have a brood of hatchlings fly off on their own. The first version will not use a server, but later more complicated versions could be made. A C++ tutorial is also being made as a side product of Soar.
