|Posted on 23-Sep-2004 07:56 GMT by Peter Gordon||29 comments|
Massimiliano Tretene, of Soft3 has announced "Rolling Dice", a new physics simulation library for AmigaOS4. This will aid in the creation of new, original 3D games for OS4, along with many other fields where physics simulation is useful.
With this library it's possible to simulate:|
- impulsive and contact forces between 3D rigid bodies
- collision detection between 3D rigid bodies and between terrain and 3D rigid bodies
- collision response
- thrust force
- air drag force

|In reply to Comment 2 (Peter Gordon):|
What's the license of this engine? Will it be open source?
For software like this, being open source is kind of a must, 'cause it's easier and faster to spot and fix bugs, and it gives a chance for other science-addict people to improve upon it, for the benefit of the rest.
There are already many very well established and open source (not just free) projects out there, I'm not sure a closed source one (if it is indeed closed source) can compete.
Not meaning to put down this effort, of course, just trying to understand some things better.
