  • 08:52, 26 February 2014: GoogleSummerOfCode2014 Welcome
    An introduction for potential future Google Summer of Code students has been posted: https://sourceforge.net/p/crystal/discussion/gsoc/

  • 07:47, 25 February 2014: GoogleSummerOfCode2014

    Crystal Space was again accepted for Google Summer of code 2014! (http://www.google-melange.com/gsoc/homepage/google/gsoc2014). Google Sumer of Code is a yearly event where Google gives students a chance to do a paid summer job for Open Source projects. So if you are a student and are interested in earning a bit of money during the summer then you can apply for any of the 177 accepted projects. More specifically you can apply for Crystal Space. You can apply (both as a mentor or as a student) at the Crystal Space Google Summer of Code site (http://www.google-melange.com/gsoc/org2/google/gsoc2014/crystal). From there you can also visit the ideas page. But of course you are free to suggest your own ideas too. I would especially like to see ideas related to the AresEd project for example.

    Discussion about Google Summer of Code can be done on our mailing lists or forums: Community

    We're looking forward to working with you!

  • 06:50, 20 October 2012: News PlaneShift 0.5.9.2

    Atomic Blue has just released a new version of their free 3d mmorpg based on Crystal Space engine: PlaneShift. They used latest CS trunk , which has been reported by them to be a big improvement in terms of stability. PlaneShift source code is fully Open Source and everyone can contribute to its development. The latest release 0.5.9.2 brings a number of improvements including: Herbalism, alchemy, gem enchanting, new quests and improved rules, as well as simplified NPC interaction and new spell effects. Overall it's a good showcase of the CrystalSpace capabilities, go and check it out! A link to the PS site:

  • 13:42, 17 August 2012: Ares Blog August 2012

    Jorrit just posted a new blog entry on AresEd. In case you don't know yet, AresEd is going to be a high level tool for editing full 3D games using Crystal Space and CEL. It is currently in an almost usable state (so consider it alpha software). Read about the recent developments here: http://projectares.blogspot.be/2012/08/work-on-aresed.html

    I just posted another blog reporting on the Google Summer of Code this year: http://projectares.blogspot.be/2012/08/google-summer-of-code.html


  • 22:05, 2 July 2012: News Crystal Space 2.0

    Jorrit Tyberghein and the rest of the Crystal Space and Crystal Entity Layer development teams are pleased to announce the immediate availability of CS and CEL version 2.0.

    Check out the Download page for the files and further information, and the release highlights page for an overview of the new features.


  • 06:19, 9 June 2012: News Android Development

    I just acquired an ASUS Transformer Tablet with Tegra 3 processor. I've seen a few 3D games on it (demos and free games) and performance is unbelievable. I'm currently busy experimenting with the development options for this platform and it seems very good indeed. The normal development language for Android is Java but it is also possible to make native apps in C++ using the NDK. Specifically for the Tegra processor you can get a customized version of the NDK and SDK from nvidia directly which is easier to set up. It works on windows and linux.

    Using these tools it should be possible to make a working port of Crystal Space on Android. Especially Android devices with Tegra type processors or higher should be able to run pretty powerful Crystal Space games but I'm hoping that older processors can also use it a bit.

    So what is my current dream? You all know that I'm working on AresEd. I would *love* to be able to develop Android 3D games using AresEd. The idea would be that users can install Ares as an application launcher for Ares specific games. AresEd itself would probably not run on the Android but at least the Ares game player should.

    So I'm trying to find people to help me with this. I will certainly work on this but I can't do this alone as this needs testing on various devices and there are also areas in CS that I'm not that comfortable with (like shaders and stuff like that).

    Let me know if you're interested.


  • 23:21, 12 April 2012: News PS release 0.5.9

    The PlaneShift development team is happy to announce a new PlaneShift release! 0.5.9 has finally arrived! This release has a graphical update for some of the main areas, better lighting, new sounds and music, better NPC day/night cycles and many new features on the PlaneShift Engine which will allow us to add new content in the next coming weeks and months. A big thank to all the developers who dedicated endless hours to make this happen!

  • 16:28, 18 January 2012: News CS CEL and Ares future Call for help and donations

    Dear CS, CEL and Ares developers, users, supporters and all,

    In the fast pace world of 3D, hardware and gaming. It is difficult to keep up and progress without the assistance and generosity of others.

    CS, CEL and Ares are three core projects that now and in the future, bring you the ability to create games and other applications with a degree of ease and flexibility. Doing this though creates it's challenges. As Open Source projects, we survive on peoples generous donation of time and their passion which is so great they purchase much of the hardware to progress the projects from their own pockets.

    We are reaching out to the community and wider to assist us if you can and reduce the burden from individuals and progress as we wish to. In the future we wish to:

    - Better support Apple Mac OS X
    - Add Android support
    - Add Apple iOS support
    - Add GLSL and GLES

    We would also like to be able to purchase up to date versions of software for example Visual Studio for long standing developers. Other uses of any financial donations would be decided by concensus amongst the development team as they are at present.

    As projects we are always looking for new people to help in all areas of the projects.

    If you are able to offer your time to any of the projects please contact us via the discussion or development mailing lists.

    To subscribe and mail to the list, please see:

    http://www.crystalspace3d.org/docs/online/manual/Mailing-Lists.html

    As projects we are in desperate need of hardware and software to bring support and features up to date then progress, and as a team of individuals we can only do this via donations in the future.

    If you are able to make a donation of money or hardware. Please contact the founder of the CS, CEL and Ares projects:

    Jorrit Tyberghein - Email: jorrit.tyberghein@gmail.com

    Regards

    Phil Wyett

  • 07:58, 17 October 2011: News Project Ares

    The Ares Project is looking for C++ developers and 3D/2D/sound artists! Ares is a new ambitious project managed by Jorrit Tyberghein. The project is divided in three parts:

    • A Game Editor called AresEd. This will be the tool that the game designer(s) can use to make games. It is going to be a general tool so it is useful for more then just Ares. This tool is currently already functioning but a lot of work is still needed to make it really usable.
    • A Game Player that will be able to play games made with AresEd. This tool will be heavily based on CEL. Most of the game logic and coding has already been done on this part of the project.
    • An actual game based on the above tools. Check out the Ares Project page to learn more about this game!

  • 07:36, 17 October 2011: News Free Game Alliance
    Free Game Alliance Take a look at the Free Game Alliance, it's a very interesting initiative started to promote open development and open source software. One of the projects, PlaneShift, uses Crystal Space, so we are indirectly part of the Alliance as well! The idea behind the initiative is to selects one project for each genre, example FPS, strategy, car racing, mmorpg, with the objective of focusing new developers on those projects and creating one best in class open source project in each category.

    The following games are currently present in the alliance:

    • MegaGlest: A 3D real-time strategy (RTS) game,where you control the armies of one of seven different factions.
    • PlaneShift: A Role Playing Game immersed into a 3D virtual fantasy world. PlaneShift is made by a group of RPG enthusiasts who decided to make the impossible: a mmorpg built from scratch!
    • Rigs of Rods: Started as a physic engine, and then evolved in a playable game! What makes Rigs of Rods different to most simulators is its unique soft-body physics: vehicles, machines, objects, etc. are simulated in real-time as flexible soft-body objects.
    • The Battle for Wesnoth: A turn-based tactical strategy game with a high fantasy theme. Build up a great army, gradually turning raw recruits into hardened veterans.
    • Xonotic: a fast-paced first-person shooter providing addictive arena shooter gameplay which is all spawned and driven by the community itself.



  • 11:26, 17 May 2011: Tempest in the Aether

    The Development team at ‘Tempest in the Aether’ would like to announce a free, completely open source, Steam Punk styled MMO using the PlaneShift implementation of the Crystal Space 3D engine. The game is currently in an early stage of development producing a technical demonstration of the game.

    This will include:

    • A fully functional game server and cross platform support for the game client.
    • An initial map.
    • Several Steam Punk styled Automatons.
    • A fully functional and active quest system.
    • A custom recorded sound track and environmental audio and in depth settings.

    To view and current status and follow the progress of the game visit the Tempest in the Aether web site at www.tempestintheaether.org and join the team on their forums.

    If you would like to chat with the team, see what they are up to, ask about the game or perhaps about offering your support to aid developing Tempest in the Aether then please join them on IRC.

    If you are interested in viewing some of the concept and 2D/3D art which has been created for Tempest in the Aether then either please visit the online galleries at www.tempestintheaether.org/gallery

    Or visit a collaborators site, OpenGameArt.org. Which brings like-minded coders and artists together to create Open Source video games, by providing a database of freely-licensed art resources. Searching for ‘Tempest’ will bring you results for items made for us but licensed openly http://opengameart.org/search/art?keys=tempest

    For the sixth time in a row Crystal Space was accepted for Google Summer of Code 2011!

    If you are a student and interested in working on Crystal Space for Google Summer of Code then make sure to visit our SoC page and especially the list of ideas. On Monday, March 28 at 19:00 UTC Google will start accepting student applications but in the mean time feel free to join us in the #CrystalSpace irc room (irc.freenode.net) or at our development mailing list and discuss your project ideas in advance. It is also worthwhile to make yourselves comfortable with Crystal Space code (version 1.9).


  • 15:03, 14 March 2011: CS in an Immersive Virtual Environment



    The Electrical engineering department of the Institute of Information and Communication Technologies, Electronics and Applied Mathematics at Université catholique de Louvain has used Crystal Space in its developments for a couple of years. To meet some of the requirements of their work, they have already improved several features of CS such as the Bullet physics plugin and the new animated mesh.

    This research department is now starting a long term project on the setup of an Immersive Virtual Environment to be used by psychologists for experimentation and therapy, and they have chosen Crystal Space as the game engine that will simulate and render the virtual environments. Hopefully we can keep seeing more great improvements to CS from them over the next few years...

    A new blog has been started that will try to regularly present the developments made in CS for the setup of this Immersive Virtual Environment. See here for more info.


  • 13:05, 17 September 2010: CS PS Collaboration



    Today we have a great announcement to make! During the past 8 years the PlaneShift team and the Crystalspace team collaborated closely, sharing knowledge, ideas and code. The two teams have been working together in many occasions, and quite a number of the PlaneShift developers have contributed to the CS codebase in multiple ways improving the engine. Just to mention the most important developments: decals, cal3d support, 3dsmax exporters, mac osx support, sound engine, billboards, terrain alpha and more. The PlaneShift levels have been used (and are still) as a benchmark for identifying bottleneck and needed performance improvements. This allowed a better tuning on the engine for production use. PlaneShift is the biggest active project created with CrystalSpace and to strengthen even more this collaboration, we are happy to announce that Jorrit Tyberghein has been elected as Director in the Board of Atomic Blue, the non-profit corporation created many years ago to support the PlaneShift project. In his new role, Jorrit will be part of all major decisions related to PlaneShift and will ensure a profitable collaboration between the two teams. It's great to see two open source projects teaming up! But the road is still steep and we need all possible help from the community to make Crystal Space the best open source 3D engine and PlaneShift the best free mmorpg! Join us today!

  • 18:22, 29 May 2007: Commercial Support

    Starting today a group of Crystal Space developers are starting to provide commercial support options for Crystal Space. We are called CrystalSquared (or CS^2). The idea is to enable people to get more extensive support then what they can usually get for free at the moment. Also it is important to stress that free support for CS will in no way be diminished by this. You will get the same amount of free support that you are already getting right now (and even more if we can manage :-)

    For more information about this commercial support option you can visit the CrystalSquared site at: www.crystalsquared.com


  • 11:35, 2 May 2007: New Blogs

    We finally got our blogs back! Especially for the upcoming Google Summer of Code we needed the blogs back that we had back with the old Crystal Space site. We also have a summary site where you can easily read all new blog entries as they appear. Currently it is also listing a few older entries (which it shouldn't) but I'm sure we solve that soon enough.

    Crystal Space is accepted as a mentoring organization for Google Summer of Code. That basically means that we will accept students to work on some part of Crystal Space and Google will pay these students. We put up a page with some ideas on possible projects here. A very important link for students is the Google Summer of Code FAQ. You can see there that the deadline for student applications is 24 March! So don't hesitate. If you have some idea that is not on our list already then please talk to us about it first to increase your chance of being accepted.
