3D Virtual Worlds List
I try to keep up with the latest in 3D virtual worlds, but new stuff keeps popping up all the time, so no doubt I will miss stuff. 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.

Virtual world The user accesses a computer-simulated world which presents perceptual stimuli to the user, who in turn can manipulate elements of the modeled world and thus experience a degree of telepresence.[6] Such modeled worlds and their rules may draw from the reality or fantasy worlds. Example rules are gravity, topography, locomotion, real-time actions, and communication. Communication between users can range from text, graphical icons, visual gesture, sound, and rarely, forms using touch, voice command, and balance senses. Virtual worlds are not limited to games but, depending on the degree of immediacy presented, can encompass computer conferencing and text based chatrooms.

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.
