CrystalSpace is a portable modular 3D SDK, including many components for building various applications and games - these are still quite useful for projects that do not involve 3D. CS is still very much in development, so anyone who feels inclined to do so can contribute to the source. There are a number of incomplete components still needing to be finished, and a wide array of possibilities for new contributions; for more information about what is missing and a list of currently known bugs, please visit the Developer's Project page at SourceForge:

We are happy to announce a new PlaneShift release: 0.5.9!
This release improved many of the main maps with better lighting, new sounds and music, better NPC day/night cycles, normal maps and new textures. Additionally we added many new functionalities to the PlaneShift Engine, which will allow to add new content in the coming weeks and months.

Engine - Graphics:

  • Fixed texture loading order on character which fixes problems with Klyros/Enkidukai skin color being wrong and armor disappearing.

Engine - Rules:

  • Overhauled the music rules support to work by limiting the amount of notes instead of making them wrong. Additionally several problems regarding musical instruments have been fixed.
  • Added information about quality when a new item is created through crafting.

Engine - Artificial Intelligence:

  • Merged GSOC 2011 work on tribes and expanded from there by adding several functionalities to NPC which should start to show soon.

  • Added support to magic for NPC.
  • Added several perceptions and scripting options to NPC in order to allow checking for more conditions and act appropriately.
  • Added support for /percept in order to trigger NPC perceptions.
  • Added information about the NPC status in /info

Engine - Infrastructure:

  • From now on clients will just authenticate with sha256 passwords (if you cannot login you can restore the password from the registration page or input your password from scratch in a 0.5.8.1 client and get in-game, then try logging back in 10 minutes later)
  • Desura clients now will ship with the updater functionalities disabled, you can still enable them by changing pslaunch.cfg (Update.Enable option), but we suggest to use the Desura update functionalities.
  • Now the Linux client will run again old older distributions (GLIBC 2.7).
  • Improvements to the updater which should be more stable after this release.
  • Added support to restart the NPCClient directly from an Administrator client with /quitnpcclient
  • Added a button in pslaunch to allow an easier of the shader cache in case of problems.
  • Fixed a bug which could show the server as being unreachable after logging out (for example after deleting a character)

Engine - General:

  • Added some command line commands to set character descriptions (/setdesc, /setoocdec, /loaddesc, /loadoocdesc).
  • Math scripts and paths can now be reloaded from the database at runtime allowing an easier development, and restart-less fixes. (/reload path, /reload mathscript).
  • Added support for buff-able variables on a character.
  • Several places are now more script-able: when damage is applied to a character, when a new item is created from crafting, etc. Additionally several ways to change things regarding items and inventory have been added to scripting support.
  • Fixed a crash when using names of off-line entities as target for administrator commands.
  • Now GM can see mana in the detail windows of characters.
  • Fixed dangling alliance/guild data being kept in the db even if they were effectively not existent any more.
  • Allow multiple crafting patterns to be within one book.
