I was looking up virtual worlds on Wikipedia before, as I’m curious to know what other worlds are allowing building.

Open Life -New kid on the block maybe « My So Called Second Life

Apart from Active Worlds, I didn’t think that there was anything much. Suddenly there’s a new one, called Open Life, although it actually uses the Second Life viewer to log onto their hosted world. I thought I’d give it a look, and the picture above shows it as is right now. It’s in Beta testing, clunky movements, until the creators of the world introduce features, and avatars that are still very primitive until a bunch of users go make stuff for them.

While I was there, a couple of experienced SLers were talking about the good skin files that have been made full permission, to encourage more creativity in SL.

3D Virtual Worlds List

I'm posting a page to keep track of it all.Just a definition. A 3D Virtual World contains the following traits: 1. Its a Massively Multiplayer Online Game. 2. It renders in 3D (ruling out the literally hundreds of 2D flash virtual worlds like Club Penguin and Gaia Online). 3. It allows for multiple types of activities, primarily non-competitive social ones. Universe Sandbox. Ultimate Power Spawn massive stars, launch asteroids, and manipulate gravity with just a few clicks.

Welcome to Celestia ...

Celestia: Home

The free space simulation that lets you explore our universe in three dimensions. Celestia runs on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X. Unlike most planetarium software, Celestia doesn't confine you to the surface of the Earth. You can travel throughout the solar system, to any of over 100,000 stars, or even beyond the galaxy. Explore the 3D universe model map. Or get some more files and more commands with the Large Structures Applet which may also adopt a resizeable floating frame.

Explore the 3D universe model map

Hold the 3D universe in your hand This applet shows a true 3D map (atlas or model) of stars and other objects in the Milky Way and thousands of other galaxies near or far away. You get the 3D effect when you turn the universe around as a ball by dragging it with the mouse. "True" means that positions of stars and galaxies are correct (but sizes are not). Changing to one or several other files, turn the universe around and do some zooming is fine. Large Structures Applet. Most orbits in solar system are (almost exactely) ellipses, and there's a Java utility to draw them: drawoval in the Graphics calss.

Large Structures Applet

There is no standard Java utility to draw parabolas or hyperbolas. Moreover all ellipses are of finite size, this is not the case for parabolas and hyperbolas. So when you want to draw the hyperbolic trajectory for a spacecraft or the (nearly) parabolic trajectory for a comet you have two problems: find the algoriths and decide what part to draw.

I adapted fast and well-written algorithmes by A. AGATHOS, T. That explains why I have not retained many parabolic comets and why you will see truncated orbits for these ones (that seems somewhat strange) and for the spacecrafts (that seems more normal). Another thing you should know concerns precision. As a consequence parameters in a file will only correspond to true orbit with some acceptable approximation during some timelapse. 3D Universe - Digital Figure Design.
