2017 WW: IMA Community web site: Infinite Metaverse Alliance--Virtual Worlds United. Visit a web-world.

IMA Community web site:  
Infinite Metaverse Alliance - Virtual Worlds United
Visit a web-world
The IMA Community website is now open and equipped with a web-world of its own.  This web-world is an import from a virtual world in OpenSim.   It shows a little of what virtual worlds are like and offers an opportunity for people to visit a 3D world and talk (in voice) with the people who live there.  Later, there will be help on getting into OpenSim and getting started on using virtual worlds.
IMA 3D web-world 
  • Go to IMA web-world site to visit this web-world.
  • Click the picture there to go in.  
  • The download may take a minute, depending on your bandwidth.
  • The picture becomes a world you can walk in.  
  • That's not something you see everyday.  Well, not yet.
  • You get first person view (from the eyes of your avatar).
  • You never see your avatar, but you see other avatars if they are there.
  • The other avatars are balloon heads. 
  • They will have nickname under them when the project is finished.
  • Click the mic to talk to them.
  • Imported from a virtual world:
  • outpost alpha

  • Home page: Infinite Metaverse Alliance - Virtual Worlds United
  • The web-world Is under the JOIN US tab.
  • The web-world above was imported from :
  • outpost alpha
  • If you have an account on a grid that is HG connected, you can visit.  
  • You can compare the two worlds if you like.  
  • The objective of the web-world is to give a sense of what virtual worlds are like. 
  • In a world that people can load, walk around in, and talk with people in.
Original cabin from OpenSim
  • This import also shows the advantage of working from virtual worlds to web-worlds.
  • This build would be very hard to do in a web-world.  
  • The cabin was built and used in a virtual world for some months.  
  • The build and revisions were much easier in a virtual world.  
  • A copy was  exported from OpenSim into Collada and thence into a web-world.
