Which open source projects are you contributing to?

Postby rubberduck » 28 Oct 2019, 20:13

I am just curious, what are the open source games / projects you are all contributing to, or do you work more on an own project if you have one??

I contributed to supertuxkart and stunt rally in the past - today I am more focused on flare making art for it and a bit for tuxemon.

Next to these projects I work on a sokoban style game using godot called duoban.

I also started a 3D platformer project in the past calledlaundred sheep, but the game idea was too big that it would take too much time to complete, so I stopped working on this game to make a smaller game, which is duoban now...

I maintained xwpe for a while. It was a IDE with an interface like Borland Pascal. I took over maintaining SDL_mng, Ostrich Riders, Shippy 1984, Open Alchemist, and Mojotron. I've contributed to xs-httpd, plume-creator, a failed civ clone, and tuxemon. I've made a bunch of patches in my Open Game Source articles. Some have been incorporated into the projects. I started Bt Builder, Troll Bridge, Viobyte, Color Monsters, and Yaroid.

Not too much currently: some non-game stuff like updating a Docker script for Movim or modifying a Wordpress plugin for ConverseJS. Basic php, can't find the motivation to dive into more complex stuff right now :(

these are a lot of projects...

I contribute to a smaller amount of projects, so I can do more things there. In the past I made a lot of tracks for stunt rally, but then the development ended and making tracks didn't make so much sense anymore...

Probably explains my lack of complete games. Bt Builder is more an engine than a complete game at the moment. Troll Bridge and Color Monsters are very incomplete.

I missed Squirrel Eat Squirrel in my list of projects.

I'm the author of the fig programming language and distro-libre, the latter of which is intended to automatically remix a variety of GNU/Linux distributions.

Other than that I write small scripts that do a variety of things. I have a Python command shell called alex that also works in Windows, which I wrote for teaching the command line.

i used to contribute to OpenMW -- it was my first and one of the most valuable experiences regarding contributions. I've mostly written graphics code like water shaders, weather effects, but also fixed bugs and implemented minor features in other areas, and later also created extra features like 360 degree screenshots. At the time I started I was a complete noob with git, version control and big codebases, but there was this great maintainer -- I think he called himself scrawl -- who had patience with me, gave me great tips and feedback, encouraged me and let me learn everything, and I am very grateful to him for that. Sadly after MS acquired GitHub there was this big debate on the forums about whether the project should move and about the overall philosophy, and he left the project after that (even though OpenMW actually moved to GitLab eventually). I have also left later because of a few things (e.g. I started to hate C++, OpenMW requires proprietary data etc.), but it was really the best experience I could wish for.

Aside from this I made some minor contributions to things like OpenRW, maybe even 0 A.D. (can't recall now if they merged my stuff).

I also tried, with a few guys, to start a similar engine reimplementation for the game Mafia, called OpenMF, and we actually got some stuff working, rendering and colliding, and the project was also trending on GH for a while. There I tried to be the project leader for a while, and I think I did some things right, but I still lacked a lot of experience, the nerves, and it's an incredibly difficult position overall -- I wouldn't want to be a leader again. The project also died later, but it was another good experience.

I think everyone should try this, you simply learn so much. I am only working on my own small stuff now because I have adopted a different philosophy and have different goals, and it's actually to a great extent thanks to all I've learned in he big projects.
