A revisiting of an earlier clouds project that was originally done in REALbasic about 6 years ago. This version is a complete rewrite.
The main improvement — aside from the better graphics engine — is that every cloud generated is a “good cloud.” The original version of the cloud program generated bad-looking clouds just as often as it produced a good one.
Each of these clouds grows organically from a small seed. The animation is quite nice to watch but the speed slows down once the complexity rises; this would need to be addressed before I post an applet version.
