Obsidian 1.9.1a

Obsidian is a OpenSource 3D network game for Linux and SGI.
Obsidian project is a OpenSource 3D network game for Linux and SGI.

Obsidian is an extensible virtual world system with a fullblown multiplayer client-server architecture. It is not a VRML2 world system, though there are plans to include VRML2 as a world data format.

Note that active development on this system stopped a while ago, though the code is still available for the curious. The code may not even compile on current Linux or Irix systems.

Main features:

  • Multiplayer Client-Server architecture
  • Generic TCP/IP hence works natively across the Internet
  • Full 3D headsup with texture mapping
  • Runs acceptably on a 486, screams on a Pentium
  • Editable worlds and textures
  • Supports some forms of IMPOSSIBLE ARCHITECTURE (eg. rooms that are bigger inside than out, corridors that curve back on themselves)
  • Inter-player communications
  • Projectile weapons (rudimentary, anybody is welcome to add more spectacular violence if they can)
