Spring is open source you know ?
So include the binary-only Havok library is out of question.

You can link to closed-source libraries under the GPL, hence why there are GPL apps that use DirectX etc.

Well, for those of us that happen to have a Cray supercomputer sitting around collecting dust... :-)

If this was an FPS, sure, that'd be JAWSOME. But we're an RTS... Havok duz not compute.

At present, Spring supports whatever platform you care to make it run on. If you decide to integrate Havok, then Spring will run on whatever Havok will run on and nothing more. In short, unnecessary and gay.

Thinking to linux is good but don't forget BSD plz :-)

I think that Havok is totally useless in a RTS... I don't see a lot of units flying and bouncing on the ground when I play, so I don't want havok :)

Of course Havok works on Mac osx, how do you think Diablo3 with havok will work on mac :P if it doesn't :P

I assume it would desync with players not using Havok.

Unless of course it's packaged with the Spring install.

I'm all for it. Physics engines are cool and Spring basically lacks one at the moment.

You would need the havok source code to be able to use streflop for sync. Besides the license problem already mentioned.

What could be possible is integrating ODE (BSD license), any volunteers? :D

how can you sync shader code at all? afaik the math ops in the gpu don't follow any precision standards yet...
