I was wondering if you guys knew of any engines that did volumetric shadows/lighting/fog, accurate collision detection between all objects, real reflections, and vertex normal shading, all in real time.
I'm starting on one myself but I have a long ways to go. I would love to see one in action.

ODE does physics and collision.

Swift, solid, magic3D do collision too.

magic 3D has a great section full of documentation and algorithm.

Real reflections in real time?

Don't exactly understand what you are trying to do. If you are trying to do STENCILED MIRRORS on EVERY surface which is reflective... I guess you will have ugly performance. Very ugly.

If you mean using render-to-cubemap to update cubemapped reflections, this is good. *Good luck with your project* but remember that an engine needs far more than just itself.
