I am looking to develop an online system... similar to the Microsoft Terrarium located at <[url removed, login to view]> ; however, I want my system to be a virtual fishtank. My initial bid is for a virtual fishtank with 2 types of fish. Check out the terrarium site for a good idea of what I want, and how it can be programmed.
I want the aquarium to be a 3D tank, that looks realistic. There needs to be some plants in the bottom of the tank that the fish swim around. This is a big key in this initial design, can you make a realistic looking 3D environment with fish that randomly swim around the environment. Users should be able to "pan" around the aquarium as the fish are moving, to see other fish and zoom in and out.
The fish need to move in random paths in general like real fish. There needs to be a feeding mechanism, which allows food to be dropped onto the surface of the water. The fish should "race" to the food when it hits the water. I want the fish to be "programmable" like in the terrarium; but there needs to be some standard fish also.
Fish should start out small, and gradually grow larger. I want a fish to grow to full size in 2 weeks initially. If they are not fed in 3 days, they should die. They should also reproduce as in the terrarium.
The completed project must be running on my website with some fish before I will release payment. Remember, the graphics need to be as realistic as possible.
I will be adding various features later on, but this bid is for the initial design as described. I will add water pH, more fish types, disease, fish poop, etc to make it more realistic. I will eventually be moving this to a virtual ocean - like the terrarium. A successful bidder will be used on subsequent changes. The bidder must be proficient in graphic design. Ideas or comments are welcome.
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.
2) Installation package that will install the software (in ready-to-run condition) on the platform(s) specified in this bid request.
3) Exclusive and complete copyrights to all work purchased. (No GPL, 3rd party components, etc. unless all copyright ramifications are explained AND AGREED TO by the buyer on the site).
Must run on my website - same as the terrarium
