If you find a viewer which can connect to OpenSimulator then please add it to the bottom of the appropriate list.
  
=== Viewers with Grid Selector and Grid Manager ===
+
== Compatibility issues ==
  
Below are viewers that have both a grid selector and a "Grid Manager". It enables you to select one of the many [[Grid List|grids]], including a grid or region on localhost (your own PC). There is also a UI interface to allow you to modify or add connection settings to these grids.
+
Since OpenSimulator and viewers development is done by diferent teams with diferent timing and even goals, compatibility can not be assured.<br>
 +
To connect to a older version of OpenSimulator, you may need to use a older version of your favority viewer. Consult your grid team, or the viewer team<br>
 +
This may also limit Hypergrid capability.<br>

If you find a viewer which can connect to OpenSimulator then please add it to the bottom of the appropriate list.

Contents

[edit] Compatibility issues

Since OpenSimulator and viewers development is done by diferent teams with diferent timing and even goals, compatibility can not be assured.
To connect to a older version of OpenSimulator, you may need to use a older version of your favority viewer. Consult your grid team, or the viewer team
This may also limit Hypergrid capability.

[edit] Viewers

  • Cool VL Viewer - the oldest of all actively maintained Third Party Viewers (former name: Cool SL Viewer).
  • FireStorm Viewer - v3 based TPV, the successor to Phoenix. The most widely used viewer on Second Life.
  • Kokua - v3 based successor of Imprudence.
  • Radegast Metaverse Client - Radegast-ng is Light client, evolution of Radagast from libopenmetaverae project.
  • Singularity - A Snowglobe-based viewer with many current features backported.
  • Dayturn - A OpenSim compatible viewer derived from Kokua.
  • Scenegate - A viewer with a focus on accessibility, and onboarding. With a simplified UI more suitable to just visit worlds, rather than building (but the full UI is still accessible). Derived from Alchemy Viewer

[edit] Beta Viewers

Singularity Nightly Builds http://www.singularityviewer.org/kb/nightly-builds

Dayturn-windows https://bitbucket.org/dayturn/dayturn-windows/downloads/

[edit] Text-only Viewers

These are lightweight viewers, which either do not offer a graphical component or where the graphical component is not used by deault. The function of these viewers however is to connect to a grid, chat, manage inventory, etc. Useful on systems with low specifications or for bringing an alt online without having your main avatar log out, or to quickly take care of messages, inventory, etc.

  • JOpenMetaverse Purely Java based OpenSim client core library. Windows, MacOS,, Linux and Android Compatible. Please see jopenmetaverse introduction
  • METAbolt - METAbolt is a non-graphical (text based) viewer. It's light weight and cross grid, which means it will work in Second Life™ as well as other grids that are based on OpenSIM. The viewer is Open Source so it's free. Currently METAbolt is only available for Windows platforms.
  • Mobile Grid Client - A Second Life and OpenSim (Open Simulator) messaging client for your Android powered device (mobile phone, cell phone, tablet...).

[edit] Inactive Viewers

  • RealXtend - a fork of the 1.23 Linden Client that has specialized features (not fully supported.)
  • Idealist viewer
  • 3Di viewer
  • Xenki, an XBAP 3D application intended to be a browser add-on for OpenSimulator.
  • Looking Glass viewer, Discontinued. Only OSGrid, ScienceSim and localhost are available from the list.
  • Imprudence Innovative viewer with a high focus on OpenSimulator.
