Urho3D is greatly inspired by OGRE ( and Horde3D ( Additional inspiration & research used:

Urho3D uses the following third-party libraries:

DXT / ETC1 / PVRTC decompression code based on the Squish library and the Oolong Engine. Jack and mushroom models from the realXtend project. ( Ninja model and terrain, water, smoke, flare and status bar textures from OGRE. BlueHighway font from Larabie Fonts. Anonymous Pro font by Mark Simonson. NinjaSnowWar sounds by Veli-Pekka Tätilä.

##Documentation Urho3D classes have been sparsely documented using Doxygen notation. To generate documentation into the "Docs" subdirectory, open the Doxyfile in the "Docs" subdirectory with doxywizard and click "Run doxygen" from the "Run" tab. Get Doxygen from & Graphviz from See section "Documentation build" below on how to automate documentation generation as part of the build process.
