    Need Help with 2D Garden Design Program

    Hi All

    I know this is a little vague but maybe some of you can help me with this one.

    Basically i need some ideas on how to go about writing a 2d Garden Design package, 3D would be nice :-) but dont think i could do it in 12 weeks.

    It is going to be written in C++ and can be either a console or windows program, im not very experienced in visual programming though so might have to be a console unless any of you can get me started.

    My knowledge of c++ spans all the basics including Functions, Structs/Classes etc.

    Im probably gonna design it using the Michael Jackson Program Design Method.

    Any Help/Ideas etc would be greately appreciated. If you know of any open source prog similar to what im trying to do please let me know so i can have a look.

    Thanks

    it would be hard to do it in console, because it doesn't include grafix.

    apparently c++ has graphics libraries which work in a seperate window mode if you know what i mean.

    i want to be able to generate a terrain ie skeletal grid to represent a garden to the users requirements i.e dimensions and then place grass, trees, water, slopes etc to make it look like a garden landscape.

    i was thinking along the lines of A Class called Terrain made up of
    a classes called say tile 1' * 1' say, these tiles could then have properties such as composition, drainage etc

    i would then have to create a tree class, water class etc.

    Ive though of this all at work tonight, what do you lot think.

    Michael Jackson Design method is what they teach amongst others on my CS Course, i just prefer JSP.

    I would go with MFC and SDI. using the CDC for your graphics. Want be the fastest but for a 12 week assignment I think thats your best bet.
