    Lift me up

    I was thinking of a large progject to complete in my spare time and have come up with a good one - creating a program that simulates an elevator. I have wortked out several classes I will use:

    Bell class // elevator bell rings on a floor
    Light class // light goes off when elevator is empty
    Floor class // decide what floor
    People class // randomise people gettig in, gettijg off and staying on floors

    What other clasess could I include, I know I will proberley have to make
    a maximum number of people the lift can hold using a constant.

    Any ideas helpful, I have not started coding it yet, still in the design phase

    My suggestions for a similar task on another forum

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Heh... I find SimTower being compared to the simplicity of this post an insult to Will Wright.

    Sorry Will Wright. I didn't think he wrote that. AFAIK two Japanese guys wrote it and it began as a simple elevator simulator.

    I believe you are correct, but regardless, it still fits in the Sim line of games. It was like in the palm of your hands. A simple elevator simulation is not quite.

    However, I do find it to be a good practice project and I wish the OP luck with it.
