Vector based drawing software designed for RPGs
AutoREALM is a free role-playing game mapping program originally made by Andrew Gryc. This program is an excellent mapping program that can design castles, caves, cities, dungeons and more. New developers are more than welcome! Previously, development were using Delphi language. Some attempts to rewrite it in other languages were done, but currently (since January 2012) there is an attempt or rewrite using those technologies: _ C++11 _ wxWidgets 2.9 (will be 3.0 when it will be released) _ openGL _ pluma framework (a fixed version located on bitbucket) The design of the actual C++ code-base primarily targets clean source code and high modularity of source code, to allow easy reuse of the code and fast learning for people who might join the effort. Current development is located on https://bitbucket.org/bmorel/autorealm . Howerver, older repositories are still here in case someone would like to consult them, and to allow easy access to algorithms they might contain.
Vector drawing program for LaTeX using PSTricks
LaTeXDraw is a graphical drawing editor for LaTeX. LaTeXDraw can be used to 1) generate PSTricks code; 2) directly create PDF or PS pictures. LaTeXDraw is developped in Java and thus runs on top of Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X.

FREE!ship is a surface modeling program for designing ships yachts and boats. Subdivision surfaces are used rather than NURBS to give the designer the freedom to design ANY desired hullshape. Unfold surfaces, panel based hydrostatics, various exp formats
A graphical Finite State Machine (FSM) designer.
A graphical tool for designing finite state machines and exporting them to Hardware Description Languages, such as VHDL, AHDL, Verilog, or Ragel/SMC files for C, C++, Objective-C, Java, Python, PHP, Perl, Lua code generation.
Simple and intuitive 2D vector drawing for electronics and not only.
A multiplatform vector drawing program with a complete library of electronic symbols. Schematics and drawings are stored in a very compact text format. There is no netlist concept behind the drawings (so no simulation, and this is a choice) but this allows a great graphical flexibility and ease of use, making FidoCadJ the perfect tool for exchange sketches in forum and newsgroup discussions with a few clicks. Drawings can be exported in several graphic formats, such as pdf. Follow the development live on Twitter: https://twitter.com/davbucci
