Virtual Worlds and Simulation Environments

  • Using OpenSimulator under BSD Open Source Licence, and I-Rooms for project meetings.
  • Recommended Viewer for OpenSim - Firestorm OpenSim Version. Connection Information.
  • If you do not yet have a Hypergrid-enabled OpenSim grid avatar, we recommend that you create a free avatar at the main open source testing and communications grid - OSGrid - and then visit the location indicated for your meeting or virtual world experience.
  • Visits to OSGrid regions can normally be done by selecting that grid in the grid list of most OpenSim-compatible viewers (such as Firestorm OpenSim version), as its usually included by default. If not, use the viewer's grid manager Preferences -> OpenSim to add OSGrid with the URL ""
  • Hedlamp project developers can obtain an Openvue grid avatar via Ai Austin and log directly onto the Openvue grid. In an OpenSim compatible viewer (such as Firestorm OpenSim version), use the viewer's grid manager or Preferences -> OpenSim and add the Openvue Grid with URL ""
  • Clicking the appropriate "hop" link below (e.g. in Firefox) should let you choose to open Firestorm viewer and it will automatically add the relevant entry to your viewer's grid manager if necesary.
  • Information on Hedlamp Collaboration Facilities in Second Life and OpenSim. See Blog Post.
  • Information on Robert Gordon University (RGU) Oil Rig in OpenSim. See Blog Post.
