I've been trying to find an idea for a personal project for a while now, and I just cannot find anything that I would like to do. Games have been my main focus for the last few years, but now I have realized I don't enjoy game development as much as I used to and I've been wracking my brain for a new non-game related project to work on. I'm more interested in frameworks and libraries that can help other people with their programming, but everywhere I look my ideas are already being done.

 So now I'm interested; what are your personal projects that you are programming right now?

I'm very much an idealist so I kind of want to do everything and try make it better. Performance is my main interest, I want to make maximum use of computer power rather than dragging it back with inefficient software.

The problem is while I have a pretty good idea of most of the theory, I have almost very little practical experience, and my idealistic tendencies tend to keep it that way. I'm trying to get past it.

I'm currently trying to write a voxel engine (akin to a game called Block N Load, whose performance issues drove me to this), to see what I can do performance wise. I've got a couple of my own ideas to try out.

And there's no less than ten other projects I want to do, and a few are unique as far as I can tell. I'll keep those to myself for the moment. Wink

On to you, even if there's basically a library for everything, perhaps you can find flaws in them, or maybe there's something more specific you need, or you could create libraries targetting a more niche audience.

You could also look at web applications. One thing I'd like is a less restrictive project/task management system. Ganterr and the like have annoyed me more than pleased me, though I certainly haven't seen all projects of the type. I'd also like an online video player that isn't doesn't completely break if you click a few buttons too fast, or lose connection for a moment.

There's also dekstop tools, I'm sure there's plenty of cool things you do to assist in asset pipelines. You could even make plugins for existing software.

And secondly, is there any application that you want to exist? That you'd find ideal?

I'm just trying to make a game that doesn't look like it was made in Microsoft paint and doesn't play like a turtle on Benadryl.

My current personal project is paused, because I'm programming other game right now.

My paused game is a Tower Defense Online (CO-OP), for Android, Desktop and Web(maybe).

But I'm so excited to start an Action RPG game for fun, this is my life.

Making own programming language with IDE for him ^^
Always have a dream make own language, but without working IDE its like programming in notepad.
(I understand this after couple years of programming)

So now making IDE.
(even don’t have idea how make custom debugger Sad, so in theory for start will convert code to java and debug on java)

Try find at lest some one rd solution, but all I find in internet is custom script language with sad syntax upgrade, same as IDE they so hard to modify even eclipse with plug-in support (rewrite java eclipse AST is hard)
So because I in any case will rewrite so many things I decide make own IDE =)
IDE its like game engine with good window system.

Do this already 6 months Wink
(Custom render, windows, repaint, file tree, etc – nonsense when we have java fx, etc - but its funny)

Current task is: make Save load IDE status – like open windows, etc…

p.s its only personal project: because in practical purposes – no one care 1 more language or IDE
we already have so many them, with big Development team, tutorials and great support.

Since few years I am developing DeedPlanner - tool for Wurm Online ( http://forum.wurmonline.com/index.php?/topic/79352-deedplanner-231-3d-house-and-deed-planner/ ) - this is probably my biggest personal project so far.



When it comes to games, I have two personal projects as well, but both of them are suspended due to lack of time and in too early stage to show them to the world, the same with Direct3d bindings for Java.

I'm trying to push myself to learn new things right now. I have my tower defense game on hold at the moment as I wanted to get something made for Android.

Thinking of learning a new programming language soon (No idea what) or taking a look at Spring & Hibernate when I have time Pointing

A few:
- My game engine
- My backup program (cause I like making stuff [it once corrupted my files instead of creating a backup...])
- A website called 7 DAY BUDDY (where every week you get paired off with a stranger to talk to for 7 days)
- School projects Cry

Is it sad that I still get a fright when the computer beeps at me...

Well it's pretty basic right now. Just your basic GDT/IDT/ISR, 32 bit kernel. I'm working on keyboard input as I'm typing this. After that I'll implement some sort of filesystem, mostly likely some FAT variant.

Not really a project, but I've been practicing drawing as I figure that if I ever want to complete  a project of any kind of quality, I should have art skills.
Opinions on what I'm working would be nice (:

-An 'abstract visual debugger' (http://symbolflux.com/projects/avd)

When I have time I'm working on a game project that also happens to be my childhood dream. Smiley
Apart from that I have a few other projects in mind like some other game ideas or a few NetBeans plugins.
Every now and then I'm learning some japanese Kanji.

But currently I'm implementing the last few parts of my bachelor thesis.

My other project that I'm doing in parallel with SilenceEngine is practicing art. In all the screenshots above, all the art is mine. I MADE THAT ON MY OWN!!!!

I've been working on optics simulations, which I am using as part of my telescope building project. I created a little blog for my results so far:

But I was playing Dragon Age: Origins this weekend and now my mind is drifting back into a game programming mode. I'll probably never build that telescope...

I'm more interested in frameworks and libraries that can help other people with their programming, but everywhere I look my ideas are already being done.

 So now I'm interested; what are your personal projects that you are programming right now?
I know exactly how you feel. I used to feel that way. I wanted to create some kind of a library addon, or library itself, but it seemed like a waste of time for now. So, I thought about what pisses me off about the library I'm using (libGDX) and I realized it was the tile map system (and recoding it on every project) and came to the conclusion that I'm going to do a better system for tile maps and for editing it.

The point is to look into already existing libraries and change something you find annoying PRIMARILY for yourself and then decide if you want to share it or not. But, since you're doing it for yourself, you shouldn't care if it'll get publicity because it'll be useful to you. If other people find it useful as well and if you do a great job, maybe it gets popular and maybe it even gets incorporated into the library you're developing system for.

I hope my answer was at least a little bit helpful.

My primary personal project is the source-to-source transformer (optimizer/partial evaluator) for Java 6.
