ATCsim (Air Traffic Control simulation) is the 2013 project of an introduction course on object-oriented programming in C++ at EPFL (CS-118). It simulates an (obviously simplified) Air Traffic Control workstation.
The goal of this project was mainly C++ training. We focused on C++11 improvements and new features, as it makes this language more powerful, and easier to use for application development. We also focused on the toolkit, using of course gcc, netbeans, but also git and clang. We tried as much as possible to follow design patterns and best practices.
You need a recent version of GCC (>= 4.7) to compile our project due to the use of C++11 new features. The SDL is used for graphics.

Basic constants (like entity speed control, distance before collision etc.) can be changed in the Constants.h header file.
