 Stratagus: Open Source Strategy Games

"Stratagus has many of the same features found in commercially produced RTS game engines. It was actually one of the first RTS engines with the ability to display multiple map views on the screen at once, back in the FreeCraft days. It still lacks, though, in the graphics area. For now, the engine can only display 2D graphics, while the latest RTS titles on the market have 3D graphics. Still, the main advantage of Stratagus over commercial engines is that players can easily modify games or create their own. Of course, there's both the Linux factor and its cross-platform compatibility, since Stratagus runs on Mac OS X and BSD, too. "One big disadvantage of commercial RTS games is they only provide a Windows version."
