OpenSimulator is an open source multi-server platform that can be used to create multiple virtual worlds. It is compatible with the client for Second Life, and can also host other alternative worlds with multiple protocols that have differing feature sets. OpenSimulator allows virtual world creators the opportunity to develop worlds with the best quality and technology.

This can be used to simulate virtual environments similar to Second Life, given that it supports a sort of messaging protocol. OpenSimulator does not aim to be like Second Life but rather to be the bare bones server of the 3D web.

OpenSimulator has some really great features! It supports online multi-user 3D environments that support as little as one simulator, but can handle 1,000’s of simulators. It supports the creation of 3D content in real-time, as well as real-time Physics simulation. OpenSimulator supports multiple clients and servers, which makes it possible for several people to access in the same world at the same time via multiple protocols. It also supports 3D virtual spaces of variable sizes within one single instance.

A region is what you will see when you log in to OpenSimulator. It is the virtual space where your avatars walk around and interact with each other. This is a square patch of land that can contain an island, mountain, plain or maybe an ocean. The grid is what organizes the regions and their position in these worlds. It also handles things that need to exist across the regions such as your inventory. It can be compared to a map.
