MMOG FPS Open Source

Steven Winston writes "Global Gaming Innovations is pleased to announce Urban Dominion http://www.global-gaming.com/Dominion/, a Massively Multiplayer First Person Shooter. The engine is loosely based upon the Quake 2 engine, and is significant because it is a first run release that is Open Source (GPL).

This game is made Massively Multiplayer via our PDMS (Parallel Distributed Management System). This system enables any game to be a massively multiplayer game without need for server cluster farms. Instead it creates dynamic cluster grids via preprietary technology.

The game engine will be liscenced according to the GPL (http://www.gnu.org), as will the models, maps, and any other entities that are part of the game. The PDMS is a seperate entity and is to be released as a closed source library. This is the first game to take advantage of the PDMS. This game is also cross platform (tested on RH8.0, and Windows)."
