    Need a project..

    Yeah, so i'm really bored atm. Does anybody have a project they can suggest I try? I'm on really new, so no 'sudoku' or anything hard. Just something to cure this boredom. Thanks.

    Well you could help me concentrate on other stuff and do the following for me:

    I need a battle system for medieval armies.

    Armies Units can be of the following Types:
    - Light, Medium and Heavy Cavalry
    - Light Medium and Heavy Infantry
    - Archers

    Can you come up with a credible and interesting combat system in which factors as morale and shock allow for battles to end without necessarily everybody dying on one side?

    EDIT: Armies can be composed from anything up to 300,000 units

    Well, then. Excellent.
    Thank you. But mostly, have fun.

    Whenever you want a small 20 minute project, head over to www.projecteuler.net/
    (The easy ones might take 5 minutes, you might never figure out the harder ones)
    I copied it from the last program in which I passed a parameter, which would have been pre-1989 I guess. - esbo
