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
