MV3D is a virtual world and multi-player game framework for use with Python. It was designed with scalability in mind and is able to distribute a world across as many servers as needed while dynamically balancing the load. The simulation framework is not specifically slanted towards any one genre of online game or virtual world, and can just as easily be used for a space game as a fantasy setting. Objects on an MV3D server can be simulated using the ODE physics engine for realistic interactions. A single server is able to host thousands of of simulated objects. The client works with both the Ogre3D and Panda3D renderers.
JSBSim is a multi-platform flight dynamics model. The FDM is essentially the physics/math model that defines the movement of an aircraft under the forces and moments applied to it using the various control mechanisms and from the forces of nature. JSBSim has no native graphics. It can be run by itself as a standalone program, taking input from a script file and various aircraft configuration files, or it can be run as an integrated part of a larger flight simulator implementation that includes a visual system. The most notable usage example is the FlightGear simulator. JSBSim models the aerodynamic forces and moments by the classic coefficient buildup method.
Shadowed Horizons is a collection of classes and utilities that form a gaming software development kit. The aim of the project is to spare programmers the need to perform countless mundane or repetitive tasks in writing their games. When complete, this software will be a generalized framework for computer games of any type.
RakNet is a networking API that is a wrapper for reliable UDP and higher level functionality on Windows, Linux, and Unix. It allows any application to communicate with other applications on the same computer, over a LAN, or over the internet. Although it could be used for any networked application, it was developed specifically for rapid development of online games and the addition of multiplayer to single player games.
OpenGLUT is an open source project to evolve the GLUT API. It uses the FreeGLUT code base as a foundation for extending, enhancing, and refining the library interface. The initial goal is to define and implement OpenGLUT API Version 1.0, which is intended to supercede the GLUT 3.x API.
tkscript is a JIT-accelerated C-like scripting language with bindings for OpenGL, SDL, SDL_net, libpng, and zlib. A plugin SDK can be used to dynamically extend the script engine with custom C functions and C++ classes. It can be used to create portable, 3D, OpenGL-accelerated multimedia applications.
Teddy is an OpenGL-based 3D graphics library written in C++. Its main features are simple scene graph and windowing system-enabling multiple cameras, camera windows, and scenes. It focuses on easy and flexible manipulation of models and model materials in the scene graph. It contains a number of primitive objects like sphere, box, and cone, and it can load LightWave object and scene files.
