Spark - A generic physical simulator / News: Recent posts

simspark: version 0.1.2 released!

A new version of simspark is available now!

Simspark is a physical simulation system. The primary purpose of
this system is to provide a generic simulator for different kinds
of simulations.
Simulations for this simulator can be constructed to a great part by
changing text files with no further recompilation.

This release comes with some bug-fixes, performance improvements and also, a Windows installer. Refer to NEWS and ChangeLog files for more information.... read more

rcssserver3d: version 0.6.1 released!

This is the first release of the simulator after RoboCup 2008 competitions,
and the first release of rcssserver3d package as a separate package which
uses simspark package to implement a hunamoid soccer simulation environment.
In this version of the simulator, restricted vision perceptor is enabled again,
and is going to be used in 2009 competitions. You can read more about this
perceptor in 0.5.9 NEWS section.
Finally, we do not use autotools for our build system anymore. You should use
CMake (version 2.6) to build the package. See INSTALL for further installation
instructions.... read more

simspark: version 0.1 released!

This is the first release of the simulator after RoboCup 2008 competitions,
and the first release of simspark core simulation package as a separate
package.
In this release, MaxStepsPerCycle have been reduced to 1, so the simulation
time spent in each cycle is fixed. As a result, the performance of the agents
should not depend on the simulator speed, and they should be able to sense/act
in fixed simulation time steps.
This package provides a generic simulation framework and does not contain any
soccer features. To use the soccer simulator, you should install rcssserver3d
package which depends on this package.
Also, we do not use autotools for our build system anymore. You should use
CMake (version 2.6) to build the package. See INSTALL for further installation
instructions.
