Similar to Blind::Games, this code could probably benefit from a nice DSL. But in the code below you will be able to see how my generalized world objects are meant to be used. The Blind::Worlds.original reflects the layout of the world used in Practicing Ruby 4.2

Notice how the World object is now fairly ignorant of game-specific terms. It is up to the Game object (and the config/worlds.rb file) to introduce those. This is a win, but does make the World object a bit more cumbersome to use.

This is about as simple of an object as you can imagine, but it's mostly because I didn't really add any abstraction at all. It probably can be the home of more interesting level specific logic later.

If it weren't for floating point rounding errors, this point would be guaranteed to be within the distance_range from (0,0).

Because there is a possibility for floating point precision errors, I do rejection sampling and generate a new point if it is not in the distance range. This is messy business, and is possibly a sign of a bad model. The problem is that the borders between the regions in the game are zero-width, and so a rounding error that causes a point to be placed at (0,19.99999999997) instead of (0,20) could end up in a completely different region and cause problems. Rejecting points that aren't within the specified range at least guarantees that the error will be invisible to the player.

Unfortunately, there are other areas where point arithmetic can lead to rounding errors. They do not affect gameplay but do affect tests on occasion. This is one of several painful rats nests I ended up in when working on this codebase :-/

Before the points we chose were truncated to integers, now that they aren't we need to prevent displaying giant unformatted floats. But I sort of hate doing formatting code in data structures, perhaps this belongs elsewhere?

This is a clever tagging trick which facilitates easy lookup of points via the PointSet object that World wraps its points in. it's a bit of a kludge but works surprisingly well.

Total hack. This is a sign I am trying too hard! I should instead be creating an Enumerator here, or storing and incrementing an index.

This is definitely a sign of an object that needs to be extracted. Whenever you have a method that says "Let's delete all the variables and re-initialize them", you are essentially recreating object creation/destruction mechanisms. Still, I struggled to find the clear dividing lines here.

Determining whether the game is finished now relies on a boolean field, which is actually a bit cleaner than checking for the presence of a display message.

This whole tool is a huge hack, and required tons of trial and error with mostly undocumented Ray functionality. However, it does seem to allow us to simulate a player pressing the WASD keys in an attempt to reach a certain position in the world, which allows for complete outside-in UI testing.

This method is horribly long and ripe for refactoring. It is also a bit of a minefield: if you aren't careful about how you handle the conditions, it is easy to accidentally forget to press/release the right buttons at the right time, which can cause the acceptance tests to hang completely.

This makes searching through the Point objects that World aggregates easier. In retrospect, it would have been better to store these objects in a hash keyed by point label (with a catchall for unlabeled points, possibly). That would have been much more efficient and also look better in the code.

Adding these acceptance tests was a mixed blessing. On the one hand, it is a very rigorous test because it verifies the ability to play through an entire game using the same inputs as a player would enter. On the other hand, it is extremely fragile code and even small problems can cause it to hang. This feels somewhat familiar to using something like Mechanize to test a Rails application: it gives you a very similar testing environment to the real world use case, but is very prone to false positives and false negatives, as well as general "OMG WHAT JUST HAPPENED!?!" moments.

This is a somewhat evil kludge to deal with some floating point rounding errors which do not affect gameplay but DO affect test runs. Because I was having trouble isolating all potential sources of error and the floating point errors do not really affect gameplay, I decided to marshal a World object during one of the successful test runs. The problem with this of course is that it masks an underlying problem that may lead to unexpected results in other places.

I will be looking into suggestions on how to deal with this sort of problem later.

Because the acceptance tests fire up a Ray UI, and because they aren't really needed to be run every time, I disable them by default and force the use of an environment variable to enable them.

Through various stages of refactoring, World became less and less aware of Blind's game rules. However, these tests still sort of cover both generic functionality and game-specific rules, and need to be cleaned up.

Because there is a possibility for floating point precision errors, I do rejection sampling and generate a new point if it is not in the distance range. This is messy business, and is possibly a sign of a bad model. The problem is that the borders between the regions in the game are zero-width, and so a rounding error that causes a point to be placed at (0,19.99999999997) instead of (0,20) could end up in a completely different region and cause problems. Rejecting points that aren't within the specified range at least guarantees that the error will be invisible to the player.

Unfortunately, there are other areas where point arithmetic can lead to rounding errors. They do not affect gameplay but do affect tests on occasion. This is one of several painful rats nests I ended up in when working on this codebase :-/

This is a clever tagging trick which facilitates easy lookup of points via the PointSet object that World wraps its points in. it's a bit of a kludge but works surprisingly well.

Before the points we chose were truncated to integers, now that they aren't we need to prevent displaying giant unformatted floats. But I sort of hate doing formatting code in data structures, perhaps this belongs elsewhere?

This is definitely a sign of an object that needs to be extracted. Whenever you have a method that says "Let's delete all the variables and re-initialize them", you are essentially recreating object creation/destruction mechanisms. Still, I struggled to find the clear dividing lines here.

Determining whether the game is finished now relies on a boolean field, which is actually a bit cleaner than checking for the presence of a display message.

This makes searching through the Point objects that World aggregates easier. In retrospect, it would have been better to store these objects in a hash keyed by point label (with a catchall for unlabeled points, possibly). That would have been much more efficient and also look better in the code.

This is a somewhat evil kludge to deal with some floating point rounding errors which do not affect gameplay but DO affect test runs. Because I was having trouble isolating all potential sources of error and the floating point errors do not really affect gameplay, I decided to marshal a World object during one of the successful test runs. The problem with this of course is that it masks an underlying problem that may lead to unexpected results in other places.

I will be looking into suggestions on how to deal with this sort of problem later.
