Gladius is a 3D game engine
The engine consists of a core set of functionality that is common to all games and simulations like the game loop, messaging, tasks and timers. Common components like the spatial transform are also provided by the core. More specialized funcionality, like graphics or physics, is encapsulated into engine extensions that are designed to run on top of the core. A common set of extensions is maintained as part of this project, and support for third-party extensions is a strong design objective.
An engine instance is comprised of the engine core plus a set of extensions.
We are also building a set of tools and libraries for building games. They are designed to be generally useful and reusable in other projects as well.
