Similar action will be taken for the student who allows other student(s) to copy his/her work.

 

 

1.  OBJECTIVE

 

This assignment assesses the student’s ability to apply relevant programming concepts to develop a simple application using Python programming language.

 

2.  BACKGROUND

 

Develop a city-building strategy game called Simp City.

 

3.  SCOPE

 

You are the mayor of Simp City, and you want to build the happiest and most prosperous city possible, i.e., score the most points.

 

This city-building strategy game is played over 16 turns. In each turn, you will build one of two randomly-selected buildings in your 4x4 city. In the first turn, you can build anywhere in the city. In subsequent turns, you can only build on squares that are connected to existing buildings. The other building that you did not build is discarded.

 

Each building scores in a different way. The objective of the game is to build a city that scores as many points as possible.

 

There are 5 types of buildings, with 8 copies of each:

•             Beach (BCH): Scores 3 points if it is built on the left or right side of the city, or 1 point otherwise

•             Factory (FAC): Scores 1 point per factory (FAC) in the city, up to a maximum of 4 points for the first 4 factories. All subsequent factories only score 1 point each.

•             House (HSE): If it is next to a factory (FAC), then it scores 1 point only. Otherwise, it scores 1 point for each adjacent house (HSE) or shop (SHP), and 2 points for each adjacent beach (BCH).

•             Shop (SHP): Scores 1 point per different type of building adjacent to it.

•             Highway (HWY): Scores 1 point per connected highway (HWY) in the same row.

 

See Section 4 part 4 for more information on how these buildings score.

 

The assignment consists of “Basic Requirements” and “Advanced Requirements” as described in sections 4 and 5 respectively. You are advised to complete the basic requirements BEFORE proceeding with the advanced requirements. 

 

For this assignment, you are expected to:

•             Understand the problem completely and plan your program layout before you start coding

•             Develop the solution for each task by using functions

•             Functions developed should be as generic as possible - values used in functions should be passed in as the function parameters

•             You may use global variables sparingly

•             Implement and test each feature as it is developed  

4.  BASIC REQUIREMENTS 

 

The application should provide the following basic features:

 

1.            Display main menu

When the program is first run, it should display the main menu as shown in Figure 1.  When a user enters an option 1, 2 or 0, the program will process the option accordingly.

 

Welcome, mayor of Simp City!

The game will then return to the main menu.

 

4.            Additional Clarifications on Buildings

 

4.1.         Beach (BCH)

A Beach (BCH) scores 3 points if it is built in column A or column D, or 1 point otherwise.

 

4.2.         Factory (FAC)

A Factory (FAC) scores 1 point per factory (FAC) in the city, up to a maximum of 4 points for the first 4 factories; all subsequent factories only score 1 point each. For example,

•             If there are 3 factories in the city, each factory will score 3 points, for a total of 3+3+3 = 9 points.

•             If there are 5 factories in the city, the first 4 factories will score 4 points each while the 5th factory will score 1 point, for a total of 4+4+4+4+1 = 17 points.

 

4.3.         House (HSE)

If a House (HSE) is next to a factory (FAC), then it scores 1 point only. Otherwise, it scores 1 point for each adjacent house (HSE) or shop (SHP), and 2 points for each adjacent beach (BCH).

 

     A     B     C     D 

  +-----+-----+-----+-----+

 1| HWY | HWY | HWY | FAC |

  +-----+-----+-----+-----+

 2| BCH | HSE | HSE | SHP |

  +-----+-----+-----+-----+

 3| BCH | SHP | HSE | FAC |

  +-----+-----+-----+-----+

 4| HWY | FAC | HWY | HWY |

  +-----+-----+-----+-----+

HSE: 4 + 3 + 1 = 8

 

In the above example,

•             The HSE at B2 scores 2 points for being next to the BCH at A2, 1 point for being next to the HSE at C2, and 1 point for being next to the SHP at B3, for a total of 2+1+1 = 4 points.

•             The HSE at C2 scores 3 points for being next to two HSE and one SHP. It does not score any points for being next to a HWY.

•             The HSE at C3 scores only 1 point as it is next to a FAC at D3.

4.4.         Shop (SHP)

A Shop (SHP) scores 1 point per different type of building adjacent to it.

 

     A     B     C     D 

  +-----+-----+-----+-----+

 1| HWY | HWY | HWY | FAC |

  +-----+-----+-----+-----+

 2| BCH | HSE | HSE | SHP |

  +-----+-----+-----+-----+

 3| BCH | SHP | HSE | FAC |

  +-----+-----+-----+-----+

 4| HWY | FAC | HWY | HWY |

  +-----+-----+-----+-----+

SHP: 4 + 3 = 7

 

In the above example,

•             The SHP at D2 scores 2 points for being next a FAC at D1 and a HSE at C2. The additional FAC at D3 does not add to the score.

•             The SHP at B3 scores 3 points for being next to a HSE, a BCH and a FAC.

 

 

4.5.         Highway (HWY)

A Highway (HWY) scores 1 point per connected highway (HWY) in the same row (not column).

 

     A     B     C     D 

  +-----+-----+-----+-----+

 1| HWY | HWY | HWY | FAC |

  +-----+-----+-----+-----+

 2| BCH | HSE | HSE | SHP |

  +-----+-----+-----+-----+

 3| BCH | SHP | HSE | FAC |

  +-----+-----+-----+-----+

 4| HWY | FAC | HWY | HWY |

  +-----+-----+-----+-----+

HWY: 3 + 3 + 3 + 1 + 2 + 2 = 14

 

In the above example,

•             The three HWY at A1, B1 and C1 score 3 points each as they are all part of a 3-square highway.

•             The HWY at A4 scores 1 point. Even though it is in the same row as the HWY at C4 and D4, they are not connected.

•             The HWY at C4 and D4 score 2 points each.

 

 

5.            Program documentation

The program should have sufficient comments, which includes your name, class, date, overall description of what the program does, as well as the description of the functions.

 

                6.  ADVANCED REQUIREMENTS

 

•             Program validation -- 10 marks

Add appropriate validation for the basic requirements of the program.

 

•             Show High Scores -- 10 marks

•             Additional features – up to 10 BONUS marks

You may gain up to 10 bonus marks if you implement additional features to improve the game. Examples include:

 

o             Park (PRK) – A Park is a new type of building depending on how many parks are connected to each other (both horizontally and vertically). The score for a Park is given by the following table:

 

Size        1              2              3              4              5              6              7              8

Score     1              3              8              16           22           23           24           25

 

Note that the score given above is for the entire Park, not for each Park building, so a 4-square Park scores 16 in total, not 16 per building.

 

o             Monument (MON) – A Monument is a new type of building. If it is not built on a corner square (i.e., A1, A4, D1 or D4), it scores 1 point. If it is built on a corner square, it scores 2 points. However, if there are at least 3 monuments in the city that are built on corner squares, then all monuments score 4 points each (including those that are not built on corner squares).

 

o             Choose Building Pool – If you implement additional building types (such as Parks or Monuments given above), provide an option to let the player choose which 5 buildings to use in their game. There will always be 5 building types, 8 copies each.

 

o             Always Show Buildings Remaining – Instead of having “See Remaining Buildings” as a separate option during play, modify the code such that the information on remaining buildings is always shown to the right of the board.

 

o             Choose City Size – Instead of always having the city be a 4x4 grid, allow the player to determine the dimensions of the city. Note that you will have to adjust the number of available buildings appropriately, and you should also implement a different high score board for all the different city sizes.

 

 

Note:

•             You are expected to follow naming conventions introduced in this module.

•             You are encouraged to implement all the basic features before you implement the advanced features.

•             You should think carefully what input is required for each option if there is any.

•             You are allowed to customize your own output for the advanced features.

•             You are required to present your solution to your tutor. Your tutor may ask your questions to verify and assess your understanding of your work. Your tutor may ask you to make some changes to your program to handle another similar feature.

•             NO MARKS will be awarded for the advanced features if all the basic features have NOT been fully implemented (and fully working).

•             Marks will be deducted if you are not able to show your understanding of the program, both basic and advanced features (if applicable), during the presentation.
