Abstract

The Weapons Simulator Project is a project to produce a working weapons simulator for the purpose of preliminary weapons training. The proposed outcome of the project would be a usable weapon simulator, consisting of computer graphics for the environment, physics of the ammunition projectile, visual and sound effects of the application, combined with computer and virtual reality hardware for the navigation and handheld tools. The environment of the simulator will be produced using OpenGL libraries, compiled on Microsoft Visual C++. For the sound, OpenAL libraries will be used. These two libraries were picked for the development of the project as they are easy to use and are widely used for visualization, computer graphics and simulation purposes. Virtual reality hardware such as the virtual reality goggles and tracker are used to enhance the realism aspect of the product. Other than the components stated above, there are also other software and tools used in the development of the simulator, such as 3D Studio Max 5.0 for the modeling of the 3D models, 3D Exploration as the 3D viewer and Adobe Photoshop 7.0 as the texture and picture editor. In all, the simulator will comprise of numerous tools and theories either scientifically or multimedia. And because of the integration of these properties, the Weapon Simulator Project should be a challenging and rewarding project to be accomplished. During the research of the project, physics equations were some of the hard properties. Ways of programming were also stumbled upon such as the usage of Raw Loaders, 3ds Loaders, usage of Heightmaps and the usage of Tga or Targa files in computer graphics. As a conclusion, the project was an adventure and an integration of physics and computer graphics to produce a working simulator.
