The Jungle is a virtual environment for studying AI.
Programmers can write their own creatures and send them to The Jungle to see them fight for their lifes against other living creatures!
This is written in Java 5 and uses genetics algorithms. Creature programmers should use a lot of AI for making this more fun.
A functional core is already working and we need help from the community to make this grow larger. There are creatures' abilities and senses that weren't implemented yet by the main engine, but are documented in the UML model.
If you wanna see it working, download Eclipse 3.1M3+, catalog cvs and checkout the modules from thejungle. Remember to configure Eclipse compiler to Java 5.
Imagine multiple 'jungles' running on different machines all over the World so that creatures can travel thru RMI from one machine to other for searching a better condition of life!
