UPDATE 5: Computers for Sale - LV

After playing the current version now, I have encountered something. The gameplay is way to repetative, so I am redesigning the gameplay to support dialog, with bad / good sort of influence.

With bad influence you can get the criminals (or other) to build a computer for them, or with good influence you can build computers for, ex: The police.

UPDATE: Computers for Sale

I have decided to drop the implented database system in .NET Framework 3.5. Instead I have chosen to use MySQL instead, then it will be easier to port it to Java and other languages. This will be in all versions of Computers for Sale.
I have also decided to drop the editor for now, and just focus on the game design and the game programming.

UPDATE 4: Computers for Sale - LV

I have created a class which can load .NET DLLs dynamically, so soon I will release a version which supports plugins with .NET DLLs. Then a programmer can extend the missions, edit the missions, and the same with the mission computers.

Lego Mindstorms NXT robot

With Robotics Developer Studio, I can programme the robot in my favorite language C#.
So far I am learning the theory of just building and planning a building project. My main goal is to make a robot which shoots either paintball bullets or softgun bullets.

Unlike Computers for Sale this project will not feature an editor.
