While I am defintely interested to have BulletD become a thing,
I sadly can't collaborate with it so far. It's been on my mind
to give Bullet as a physics engine a try for videogame
development for a good year now, and I've only been using D for
the last two months. Reality is I don't have any actual
experience working with Bullet itself, so I don't really see
how my input in the project could be valuable.
Aside from the issues I mentioned, the only major issue left is
to fill in the many "holes" in the bindings, so if you end up
using BulletD at some point (assuming I can get it back off the
ground), just file an issue on the GitHub page for anything
that's missing. That makes it easier to focus development efforts.
Still, I believe that for D to be taken into consideration by
the general programming community we defintely need to have as
many libraries as possible, covering as many topics as we can.
I don't know if we have any other general-purpose physics
Derelict includes a binding to the Open Dynamics Engine, which is
a fairly capable engine. Last time I checked, though, Bullet was
You have my +1 for trying, and I really hope the community
notices this project.
