Im sure most of you have played Scorched Earth (www.scorch2000.com) aka Cannon Wars aka Tank Wars where there are two tanks and you input the angle and the velocity to shoot your bullet at the enemy. The bullet must travel above a huge mountain and hopefully land onto the enemy tank. Also wind carries your bullets depending on its speed.
So in our math class, our teacher is going over this stuff and he said that if we make this game we get a lot of extra credit. Im just wondering how to make that iregular shaped mountain (randomly generated by computer) and to make the bullets blow off part of that mountain? We can do it in any programming language so I guess java would be easier but I'm just wondering how to do this big blob of mountainous stuff.
