I've noticed a plethora of idea topics lately. People asking for ideas, people posting ideas. I figure we might as well have one central topic to exchange ideas in. If you have an idea for a program or something else for ComputerCraft that you don't have time/experience/etc. to make yourself, post it. If you need ideas, here's the place to get them. This isn't a program request topic, though. Put an idea out, but don't ask someone to code it for you.

Here are a few to get us started:

A blackjack game
A configurable control program with a user-friendly interface for creating control conditions (such as, when blue on left goes high and red on left is low, set green on right high.)

The control program is a really good idea, I might work on that when I get home.

As for blackjack, I can recall someone making a nice blackjack game with some awesome ascii images for cards.

On the subject of card games, how about Egyptian Ratscrew?

That seems awful self centered of you to think that this was your idea to make a central area for ideas. It's been done by a lot of other people.

On topic:
an API to make different gui options. Such as scroll bars, minimenus, buttons, etc.

A ray-caster. They are fairly easy to make, and do not require too many calculations. And they'd probably help make some very good games!

A GUI creator/editor sounds like an excellent idea. I've heard various people say they're making one though.

No i posted and others followed so i thought it was based on my original post. Its not self centered its bad assumptions.

A computer lock that encrypts all the files on the computer with the password as the key or something, and decrypts all the files when logging in. So if somoene bypasses the login with a disk, they can't really use the files/steal the programs on the computer.

Like this one? (2.5-d wolf3d-style raycaster I made a few weeks ago in an evening)
