One example of a somewhat large performance oriented C# application is OpenRA[1]. (An open-source implementation of the Command & Conquer: Red Alert engine using .NET/Mono and OpenGL. Runs on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X)

It is interesting to see how far it can be translated from C# to D and what the performance would be.

I'll give it a shot when I have the time, though you may also find it useful as a way to benchmark your compiler ;)

Last time (long ago) I looked at OpenRA code it didn't look like its source would (directly) translate well to high-performance D/C++/whatever. You'd end up needing to turn some structs to classes, limit GC usage (.NET has a much better GC, yet non-GC code is simpler in D), etc.

(I'm planning to work on a project with similar goals to OpenRA, although for academic reasons I'm still only working on its entity system (https://github.com/kiith-sa/tharsis-core).
