System Design of the Outworldz – DreamGrid
Watch this session recording:
DreamGrid is a free, pre-packaged Windows-compatible virtual reality metaverse system that is easy to install, easy to run, and powerful.
Anyone with Windows can run their own grid from home or at work with DreamGrid. DreamGrid automatically configures many routers for the Hypergrid with Plug and Play in Grid mode. It takes just a few clicks to launch a new Grid. The new Smart Start feature can easily create, populate, and run 160+ free regions with 10’s of gigabytes of DLC even on limited memory PC’s in under a few GB of RAM. Opensim region modules include Gloebit, jOpensim, Tides, Search, Birds, and Auto-Updating teleport sign system, and the new Smart Start. Smart Start includes Smart Boot on demand, which uses far less memory and CPU that standard Opensim. There is an Endless Seas and Land function, a Smart AI land generator and a Landscaping Manager. DreamGrid is preset with streaming audio and video for region-wide sounds and video. It includes an extensive searchble map system that shows exactly where people have been in each region, every minute. Web Front ends include jOpensim,Wordpress, Custom or Diva web pages.
