Save the seas – Scenery for Math Classroom Challenge.
“Saving the seas” is the new scenery for “Math Classroom Challenge” 1.80. With the last scenery on the Moon we saved the world obtaining helium 3 for the fusion reactors. Now we go to the seas, to clean the oceans from plastics, and destroy the walls that avoid the marine species to move freely.
The game uses the “Math Energy”. What’s this? Is a mixture of math, science and life that destroys the plastics that are floating on the water. It also allows to destroy the bricks of the walls that are being built. “Math energy” is an imaginary chemical compound, but there are real chemical compounds that are being tested to destroy the plastics.
Playing “Save the seas” is easy, but it’s important to know the key commands to opérate the helo and the drone. Both use the same buttons.
Important: practice your skills with the helo first. Free flight while you learn to control the helo is important. In fact you can enjoy the view of the seas just flying with the helo.
We recommend using a pad, but the game can be perfectly played with the keyboard and mouse.
How to play:
• The objective of the game is to clean the different areas polluted with plastics. You can configure how many areas will there be in the config panel. It’s the same option as for static math panels.
• You clean one area, then the next one activates. You can find the active area in the radar marked with a white dot.
• Every time an area is being cleaned, some dolphins and whales will be freed.
• You can also destroy the walls that are being built. These walls will be marked in the radar with a blue dot.
• You need “math energy” to use it to clean the seas. You can obtain math energy:
o By solving math problems. Generate a math panel and throw math energy to the solution.
o By destroying the walls. Every brick will give you math energy.
• If your math energy depot is empty, a short quantity will be added. Use it to solve math to obtain more, or destroy the walls.
Keys for helo and drone:
• Mouse: modify view with the helo and the drone in third view. When flying the drone the mouse rotates the drone.
• M: music on/off.
• W: move forward.
• S: move backward.
• A: turn left.
• D: turn right.
• Left shift: ascend.
• Space: descend.
• C: change between third view and first view.
• O: change between the helo and drone. When you active the drone, leave the helo stable first. No matter if it lifts a little.
• Arrow up: zoom out the radar.
• Arrow down: zoom in the radar.
• Button 1 mouse: throw Math Energy.
• Button 2 mouse: generate a dynamic math panel. Throw math energy to the solution.
In version 1.85 we have added an airplane to the “Save the seas” scenario. This airplane throws plastics to the sea. The radar indicates the presence of the airplane with a black spot. These plastics are indicated by a red spot.
Collecting the plastics dropped by the airplane gives more points than the standard plastics, but you must finish the standard plastics indicated with a buoy and a white dot in the radar in order to finish the game.
Now breaking down the walls generate plastics that you can clean up. It’s up to you, will give more points, but remember the objective is cleaning up the plastics indicated by the white dots on the radar.
Also, a yellow spot on the radar will indicate marine life that has been trapped inside plastics. You can go there and clean up the plastics to liberate them. That will count as another dolphin/whale freed.
• Practice with the helo first. Learn to control the flight.
• The drone is quite easy to fly.
• If you don’t see the white spot, zoom out the radar. You’ll see the spot near the exterior area of the radar.
• The same goes for the blue spot indicating walls.
• If you want more FPS try to fly normally with the radar at maximum zoom.
• You can try to obtain the maximum bricks destroyed, the maximum dolphins and whales freed, the maximum points by solving math problems, or a combination. It’s up to you; you choose your own target.
Next version: submarine operations.
Thank you for your interest, and have a nice day saving the seas!
