Government Sanctioned is a custom-developed text-based RPG (i.e., MUD). New players enter the world of Government Sanctioned as covert agents working for a super-secretive government organization colloquially known as "the agency". Players have a choice of six different roles spanning 19 unique professions. Whether you like stealthy, clandestine operations, the use of subterfuge and guile to infiltrate enemy organizations, or full-blown military actions, the agency has a spot for you. Players are empowered to deeply customize their character through numerous differentiation mechanisms. Character backgrounds lay the foundation for character abilities and are further defined through their cover occupation and agency department affiliation. To put a fine point on character customization, the skill and feat system provides an extensive array of options to tweak the character to suit your style of game play. The skill system boasts over 35 different skill families with around 50 different skills and checks. Skill points are gained upon professional level advancement and can be spent any way the player chooses. With 19 feat trees and over a hundred diverse feats (with new feats being added regularly), your capability for customization is endless.
The YB.ORM library aims to simplify writing C++ code that has to deal with SQL databases. The goal is to provide a convenient interface like SQLAlchemy (Python) or Hibernate (Java). The library itself is cross-platform and supports a variety of SQL dialects: SQLite3, MySQL, Postgres, Oracle, and Firebird. Integration with Boost, Qt4, and wxWidgets is built-in. In a typical usage scenario, you would describe your database schema and table relationships in a simple XML-based format, generate SQL code to populate database schema with tables, generate C++ classes, add application-specific logic to the classes, and use these classes in cooperation with the Session object to query objects from the database, create new or modify/delete existing objects, or link and unlink objects using relations. Simple serialization to XML is supported along with connection pooling.
GoFigure2 is a cross-platform application for visualization, processing, and analysis of out-of-core multidimensional microscopy data (5D data sets). Users can visualize images, segment cells in 3d, track cells through time, and detect cell divisions to generate lineages. Results are stored in a MySQL database back-end. Once data has been processed, cell-based object features are quantified and can be used for sorting, color-coding, analysis, or exported to external tools. GoFigure2 was developed for biology research including studying the development of embryos (zebrafish and mouse), synthetic biology (signaling), and for drug screening.
