Alice Answered

Although a rather simplistic tool, has anyone fiddle about with the ALICE graphics creator program?


Uck! I hated Alice.  I took a class where we went through Alice and other CAD software, and Alice was my least favorite.

All of the manipulations were so finicky.

I have to say though, I Liked the Alice in wonderland Rabbit with the watch, he was cool.

I had a lot more fun with game maker even though it's not a 3D software, and AutoCad's fun... never found out how to animate with it though.

Yes, in fact I have! Alice is a great program, perfect for those beginning in computer programming. I actually started programming on this first.

In Alice, you can make little clips (movies, I guess you'd call it) or simple games. It's also easy because you don't have to write in all of those confusing 'languages.' 

I am more accustomed to "written" programming languages (COBOL, Assembly, RPG, JAVA, BASIC and Visual Basic, etc.).   I have actually hadn't had much time to fiddle with this yet. 

 Yea, it's pretty simple, you pretty much pick different commands from a 'toolbar'(like a list of options). As I said, this is mostly for beginners.

I like this...

I have yet to fiddle around in it to learn much about it. 

I have taken a look or two at Alice. It seemed very cool, and though i've never used it, I think I might try it some time. The only thing I don't get is what it is, exactly. Is it an art program? A programming language? (Or is it like
Logo, kind've a combination of the two?)

At my school there is a class where you can use it. I haven't used it ever though.

I fooled around a little looking at the tutorial, and so far it looks very simplistic with the results it gives, but not so simple to use. But everything has a learning curve I suppose, I just hope it will be worthwhile.

No, never heard of it
