Worldslib - Open-source 3D Worlds Library for Processing

What is Worlds?Worlds will be an open-source 3D extension to Processing. It will combine at least the following features:Procedural construction of interactive three dimensional spaces Generation and rendering of 3-d planets, landscapes and simple models (vehicles, buildings) Intuitive encapsulation of Processing camera Simple packaging as a Processing library Project StatusThe engine in still in alpha, but I'm far enough along to begin thinking about documentation, example projects, etc.

Star System Simulator

Star System Simulator can perform 3D simulations of planetary positions using Euler-Cromer and Runge-Kutta (4th order) methods. The results are displayed on a 3D scatter plot and are exportable to a log file. The application is written in C# and WPF.

Eclipticwar - A 3d, pause-able, real-time space strategy game.

A personal project (though I would welcome collaborators and contributers) to develop a reasonably playable real time strategy game in true 3d, featuring more complicated physics and game model then seen in most commercial games. The project is currently being rebuilt from scratch in python, using the python-ogre bindings to the Ogre3d library for graphics, as well as SciPy and other python goodness for some of the math. While this is a 3d strategy game, graphics are not a priority: My current p
