I'm doing the project "Storytelling Alice: Once Upon a Time in a Computer-generated Land." How would I create a flow chart/rough sketch/plan?
Also, in the section "The Final Product," it says I need "a flow chart of how your animation program works, which is a diagram of boxes where each box is a step in the program you wrote." Can you explain what exactly I need to do? This step doesn't make sense to me. Could you maybe give me an example for what a step would be?
Lastly, for the step "Specify the Requirements," do I write down the requirements that are suggested (such as, it needs to be at least 2 minutes long), or do I write the requirements that I need to tell a good story?

An example of a flow chart would be something like [[this]]
. It shows what actions are taken based on what criteria within your program. For example, one box might be "move forwards." This also works for the rough sketch and/or plan.
For the step Specify the Requirements, I think you would probably want to write down the suggested requirements. That would be sort of like the "objective" of your project.
Hope this helped, and feel free to ask if you have any more questions!
