SummaryVirtual Outworlding news collection Destination guide: OpenSimWorldHyperica, Directory of Opensimulator hypergrid destinationsWELCOME TO SEANCHAI LIBRARIESHypergrid-related articles in this blog************************************************************************************What connections do we have now?The biggest: Virtual worlders are bringing their experience to web-worlds.We can move objects and OARS from OpenSim to web-worlds.Importing OAR files from OpenSim to Web Worlds: ConvoarThus we can replicate simple OpenSim worlds in web-worlds.  We can share events between worldsWe can share chat between worlds Dual streaming to Open Sim and 3DWebWorldzWith the aid of Discord we can share voice between worlds.A specialized viewer could use Freeswitch, which is already used in web-worlds.We expect that most building will be done in OpenSim, where it is easy.We can then move completed builds to web-worlds.Content creators may consider selling web-world files from their websites.Alternatively, Kitely Market could sell directly to web-worlds.What do we not have? The main thing we don’t have is a direct entry from web-worlds to OpenSim.We have web senders.  We could send a visitor to Firestorm to load a viewer.We could send a visitor to a grid registration page.We could talk an interested visitor through all that. And we could meet visitors when they come in.  We would want to meet them in a place that looks like the web-world they know.What do we need? A viewer with maximum simplicity in installing.  Firestorm may have reached that level alreadyA simple beginner’s viewer offering only the services beginners need. A cooperating grid that accepts the registration from the web-world site.So a web-world resident enters the grid with the same name and password.So we tell the person “Click the GoPro panel to go to OpenSim.”We will probably want to install the viewer from a site under our control.That way we can make the installation as simple as possible.  And the person can go directly from viewer installation to a cooperating grid. We can talk the person through the installation as needed.And we can meet the newcomer at the arrival point.  Roadmap for connecting web-worlds and Open-simImport OARSOars transferred from OpenSim to 3DWebWorldzShared IM (TBD needs viewer changes) Shared voice  (TBD requires viewer changes)Shared performances (Hase been done, no tech problems)Instructions for OS entry (TBD No tech problems)Put web-world on grid registration page.
