FlightGear Flight Simulator: free open-source multiplatform flight sim
Founded in 1997, FlightGear is developed by a worldwide group of volunteers, brought together by a shared ambition to create the most realistic flight simulator possible that is free to use, modify and distribute. FlightGear is used all over the world by desktop flight simulator enthusiasts, for research in universities and for interactive exhibits in museums. FlightGear features more than 400 aircraft, a worldwide scenery database, a multi-player environment, detailed sky modelling, a flexible and open aircraft modelling system, varied networking options, multiple display support, a powerful scripting language and an open architecture. Best of all, being open-source, the simulator is owned by the community and everyone is encouraged to contribute.

A tool that uses OpenCL to procedurally generate 3D models
The SuperShaper is an interactive tool to manipulate 3D meshes created from a "Trigonometry Formula" in real-time. The created mesh of up to a million vertices can be morphed interactively. The model is displayed in 3D, allowing customising the rendering. Export to 3DS and OBJ file formats is supported.
Gphoton in a simple 3d modeler and ray tracer.
Gphoton is a simple 3d modeler and ray tracer. If you're looking for the best 3d modeler or best ray tracer, this isn't it. If you want to easily make some simple 3D primitives and see multiple reflections or dink with ray trace code, you might find this fun, read on. In 2nd grade we had a sub who taught us to draw 2pt perspective - life was never the same. My dad's drafting book taught that and 3pt persp. In art I was awed by Durer and the mirror in Van Eyke's Wedding. In the 70s-80s I was trying to do 3D on early computers - big BW pixels! By late 80s I saw ray tracing and had to write my own. I wrote the 1st ver while taking vector calculus and CAD programming classes c. '92. I was intrigued not only by the beauty of the math but also ray tracing curved metals. This is actually the 2nd ver, ported from MFC to gnome (with enhancements like optional GL) c. '00 with some help from David. Apr'17: Updated to compile on recent Ubuntu/Debian - still runs, even on a pi!

Galaxy extraterrestrial life simulation
EtiC is a galaxy simulation software that generates and renders a mock galaxy for rational estimation of the number of extraterrestrial civilizations. Stars and planets are simulated with plausible physical characteristics, based on user-adjustable parameters. An EtiC simulation run consists to generate a galaxy disk physical stars, associate planets to the stars, and for habitable planets, simulate the life stages evolution until extinction. A visual animation of the galaxy and user selection of highlighted star-planet objects is provided, together with statistics (25+ graphs) and estimates of Drake equation factors. The V2_1 provides several new features: planets surface magnetic field, reworked life stage transitions, integration of MW exoplanets catalog, planets view and graphs window optionally on different threads... EtiC is based on OpenGL / GLFW 3.2, runs on MSWindows 7 and MacOsX. Source code in C++, was developped using the Dev-C++ IDE and XCode.
