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.
A public domain cross platform 3D game
An OpenGL 3D game, written from scratch (no dependencies). Provided as freeware mostly as a source of inspiration to help others. A little like a 3D version of the Amiga game Pang! The game is mostly intended for someone wanting to learn OpenGL. But since the game only uses OpenGL 1.0 the drawing code is outdated, but still things can be learned from the collision detection and other techniques. Some of the code is left in an unfinished/testing state. This game was a learning experiment for me, and the math used is tested until it works for the game. After using the science math by the book, there were still flaws that could make the player get stuck under certain conditions (since floating point is not exact), and the workarounds for this are just my own ideas. Have looked at the code for other 3D games and there are mostly the same problems around collision detection and "hacks" to get it to "work".
High level OpenGL framework and game engine for REALbasic. Goal is to create an API with REALbasic's easy of use while maintaining OpenGL's versatility; along with a general use game engine.
This is a personal project that I started after leaving my previous job, where I oversaw the development of an in-house 3D engine for online gaming. Epsilon refers to "almost nothing reused," and is designed around rapid throw-away prototyping.
