The are game libraries, rather than 3d engines or scene graphs, so are not
really alternatices to CS or PLIB. Alternatives do exist however:
Open Scene Graph: http://www.openscenegraph.org/
The Nebula Device: http://sourceforge.net/projects/nebuladevice
I suspect there are probablt loads of others, but these three I have
tried for myself, albeit briefly.
