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.

LDraw™ editor for LEGO® style digital building instructions.
LPub3D is an Open Source WYSIWYG editing application for creating LEGO® style digital building instructions. LPub3D is developed and maintained by Trevor SANDY. It uses the LDraw™ parts library, the most comprehensive library of digital Open Source LEGO® bricks available (www.ldraw.org/ ) and reads the LDraw LDR and MPD model file formats. LPub3D is available for free under the GNU Public License v3 and runs on Windows, Linux and macOS Operating Systems. LPub3D is also available as a Linux 'no-install', multi-platform AppImage. Portions of LPub3D are based on LPUB© 2007-2009 Kevin Clague, LeoCAD© 2018 Leonardo Zide.and additional third party components.
