Whee.. now we can place objects and move them around and see how the steam and water react. Don't worry, the gaminess is not too far away now!

Have a play: rushed.tar.gz (requires pygame & pyopengl). Click to place an object, click&drag to reposition it, and click and drag the rotation handles (shown below) to rotate it. Easy eh?

I tried to place an object but I got this...

I get the same error. I have Python 2.4.2, PyOpenGL and PyGame 1.7.1. I hope that helps you fix the bug.
I was actually thinking of doing something like this, but couldn't figure out how to make it interesting. I think you have tackled the problem quite nicely. I hope you can make it into a fun game, too!
I smell high scores in the innovation category. ;-D
Ah, your video cards don't support non-power-of-2 texture size on rot_handle.png. I'll fix this tonight.
Wow, that is so cool! The picking of existing places rectangles is a little off (sometimes I found it adding new ones).

Played with it for a while :)

Yes, my video card is a very very basic Intel integrated card. The game also didn't run very fast. I hope you have some time to optimise it a bit before Sunday. I really want to play it. :-/
