Crystalspace3D is a free cross-platform software development kit for realtime 3D graphics, in particular games.

This talk is about Crystal Space and Crystal Entity Layer. Crystal Space is an Open Source platform for developing 3D programs. It is not specific to games but that's the most important usage. Crystal Entity Layer is a game layer sitting on top of Crystal Space making it easier to create games. In this talk Jorrit will discuss the modular structure of the engine and how this structure enables the project to be very flexible and extendable. He will go over various plugins in Crystal Space and discuss how they interact with each other. Also he will explain the Crystal Entity Layer plugins and what they add on top of Crystal Space. Other topics that will also be touched in this presentation are Blender, blender2crystal, and the Apricot project.
