The ApeSDK is a series of simulations that work together. It is primarily written in C and can be built with Mac, Window, Linux and iOS GUIs.
<H3>History</H3>
The ApeSDK was started in 1996. Since then it has been under continuous open source development.
From 2003-2009, it was used by Apple. From 2005-2011, it was used by Intel.
* From 2003-2009, it was used by Apple.
* From 2005-2011, it was used by Intel.
Each version of the ApeSDK has run for hundreds of days and continue to show the same evolutionary complexity and stability.
<H3>Simulations Combined</H3>
The ApeSDK features a number of simulation components:
a detailed landscape simulation,
a rich biological simulation,
a complex weather simulation, and,
scaling from a landscape to a planetary simulation (Simulated Earth).

* scaling from a landscape to a planetary simulation (Simulated Earth).
Three levels of social simulation including:
a reactive simulation,
a language simulation representing external and internal conversations with a number of actors, and,
a social factor simulation.

* a social factor simulation.
The SDK also features a full-stack scripting language and a series of low-level features bringing it up-to-date with every expected feature of contemporary simulation:
JSON IO data core,
multi-platform graphics for Mac, iOS, Windows and Linux,
a web server for remove viewing and interaction, and,
frequency and time based audio IO.

<H3>Built with the ApeSDK</H3>
The ApeSDK is currently used in:
Simulated Ape - a detailed simulation app for Mac and Windows,
ApeSim - an exploratory iOS app,
Simulated Urban - a detailed urban environment simulation with the organic Ape agents interacting through a cityscape,
Simulated War - a pitched battle simulation, and,
Level Ape - audio leveling software.
* **Simulated Ape** - a detailed simulation app for Mac and Windows (formerly known as *Nervana* and *Noble Ape*),
* **ApeSim** - an exploratory iOS app based on a UI-stripped-down version of *Simulated Ape*,
* **Simulated Urban** - a detailed urban environment simulation with the organic Ape agents interacting through a cityscape, (an iOS version called *UrbSim* is planned),
* **Simulated Earth** - a detailed planet simulation,
* **Just Plain Chaos** - a skirmish war-game testing for the podcast, *My Rules Are Better*,
* **Simulated War** - a pitched battle simulation, and,
* **Level Ape** - audio leveling software.
