Guidelines
RTS games are computer games that make the impression of a continuous time progress (not in turns). Player's goal is to collect resources to construct new buildings and units and to destroy opponents' game objects.

The goal of the thesis is to design and develop an engine for RTS computer games and to implement it using the .NET framework. An important part of the thesis should be an extendable object-oriented design with a programmer-friendly interface for adding new game objects (units, buildings, etc.) and extending the overall game behavior. The game engine should include a basic implementation of computer artificial intelligence and a support for remote game sessions (network games).
