Default Assignment 1 - 01-26-2015, 03:36 AM

To be honest, after reading the tutorials I had a general idea what to expect. However, I needed to actually get my hands on this Alice software to better understand all areas of the interface layout. At first what I found interesting for me was Alice is a graphic intensive program that uses alot of computer memory. So Im assuming maybe Alice should only be the program running when doing World assignments?

Far as the assignment, when I look back after completing it, I felt as if this was an simplistic assignment that I should of completed sooner. For the most part, this assignment was self-explanatory but I found myself re-reading some steps over and over. The only problem I had was adding multiple string parameters to the layout. If we were to add only one string which was "Hello World" I wouldn't had slumped but adding the second one threw me off when playing the world and seeing two bubbles appear. It looked sloppy to me. So what I did was I made a separate command by clicking anywhere and the second string would appear (Hello, Professor X). I'm hoping I will not get penalized for it.

Overall, This was a fun assignment. I learned a few things about Alice and I know if I keep working on assignments like these I know for sure I can be more familiar with Alice.

And I was not able to post this discussion in Alice pending on approval but if I receive it before midnight tonight, I will post this discussion in the forum.

Just so you know, with your 'string' commands, to fix your problem placing them in the same method works well as they go one after the other (doInOrder)...


Stuff + Other Stuff + Different Other Stuff = Things :)
