The project will be graded according the criteria for the final project - see below.
Required data structure - the advanced data structure I want you to implement is a multi-tree with the following levels:
Cave - level 0
Party - Level 1
Creature - Level 2
Artifacts - Level 3
Treasures - Level 3
Use the Map class to support efficient instantiation linking of the classes used in Project 1.
Implement comparators to support sorting:
creatures by (added fields) name, age, height, and weight
OR creatures by existing fields empathy, fear and carrying capacity
treasures by weight and value.
The sorting should be within the group - creatures within each party, treasures and artifacts carried by each creature.
Extend the GUI from Project 1 to allow the user to:
sort by the comparators defined in part 2.
Again, the GUI elements should be distinct from the other classes in the program.
