Ok, I managed to add another 3 or 4 libraries and amend a link or two.

But I really want to refactor the page entirely. As I see it, there are a few issues:

- It's hard to know the useful from the useless, but I don't want votes as that tends to favour the most well-known libraries.
- the amount of information on each library is not much, but on the other hand it needs to stay simple to be easy to maintain
- layout is a bit cluttered
- it's hard to see any updates; I intend fixing this by adding an RSS feed.
- taxonomy is imperfect - it's hard to judge what is a graphics library with some extras and what is a complete engine. Perhaps tags (as used in blogs, or Last.fm, for example ) are a solution here?

Any feature suggestions, or ideas on how I should implement this? I hope to keep this resource useful for the forseeable future.

You listed YAKE under graphics, but thats not true.

YAKE makes use of OGRE and is more of a game engine that acts as a middleware to other engines like OGRE, ODE, enet, lua ....

No problem. I just cleaned up the page a bit and made it less blue. I hope to go through the 3D libraries in the near future and sub-categorise them a bit. Any suggestions, amendments, or comments welcomed, as always.

Great list!

I'd like to nominate MicroPather at http://www.grinninglizard.com/MicroPather/ for addition to your list of free AI plugins.

Cheers,
Tim
