I want to play a game that helps me recognise parallel lines and angles.

I want to play a game that helps me recognise parallel lines and angles.
So it will present two lines and ask me whether they are parallel. It might be off by a few degrees
It asks me to line up two lines so they are parallel. 4 lines so they are parallel etc

shows angles and asks me to guess the number of degrees etc

Basically I want to get better at recognising angles and parallelism for work

      to be fair, "angle-guessing" sounds like something that can be learned... like some sort of useless skill I guess

    This might be a bait schizo thread, but there is in fact an entire series that's based on doing middle school level geometry, and that's Silent Hunter. Unironically you will be drawing lines and using a compass rose on a map to make 90 angles, and that's the heart of the game

      thanks for the advice

      I might be shit but anything under 5° just has me going "is that crooked? Nah.. maybe...?"

      What about those kind of devices that are used on construction sites to get shit straight & distances right with lazers?
      Ive seen autistic people make sure their shelves are just right with those lol.

      nah, there's the odd job when angles are measured, but it is very much the exception and non-standard

      it's very easy to be out many more than 5º unfortunately. it's all quick action

    I don't see how playing around with parallel lines in profile view is going to help you bore a straight tunnel, but okay fair enough, I assume you have underground gps for that.

      no GPS. you paint up the wall and put some paint on some rocks on the ground and do your best to drill straight (or angled), in parallel, fast

      oh, also, if a game existed where the lines were in 3 dimensional space it would be even better (and have to make parallel across 3 dimensions), but i thought it more likely a little arcade game would exist than a 3d one

    I work as a machinist and getting shit straight is a daily task. My workpieces usually range between 600-3000mm and let me tell you, piece is 1 degree out of whack? Yeah nah you aint going to notice it with your eye.
    Why not just get/make tools for quick measuring?

      yeh, i won't notice 1º when i'm out in the field, but better to be 1º out than 2º so on and so forth

      is it possible to have an x, y, and z axis? not trying to seem greedy, just clueless as to how difficult that would be

        Do you mean 3D lines?
        I don't have any experience with using phaser.js for 3D yet. If I were to make such a game, it would probably be a python script with matplotlib (in which I have experience with)
        I might hack something together tomorrow with matplotlib and simplepython gui if I have the time, but I'm not exactly sure what you mean by including another axis. It's easy to compare the angle of 2 axes but not 3. Do you want to compare two 3D lines 3 times for each pair of axes?

          Ok I pushed an update. The layout should be fixed, and I also added a counter to track how many you got right.
          Also first time loading being long is expected, just wait it out if it happens
