OpenSimulator is een 3D Applicatie Server. Het can worden toegepast om een virtuele omgeving (of wereld) op te zetten, welke benaderd kan worden door een diversiteit aan clients dmv diverse protocollen. OpenSimulator  staat u toe om uw omgeving the ontwikkelen gebruik makend van de technologieen waarmee u het best werkt - We hebben het ontworpen opdat deze gemakkelijk uit te breiden is middels [[Getting Started with Region Modules|loadable modules]], om zo volledige eigen configuraties op te zetten. OpenSimulator is uitgegeven onder de [[BSD License]], welke het zowel opensource maakt, alswel commercieel gebruiksvriendelijk om de code te gebruiken in commerciele produkten.
 +
 +
Direct mogelijk na installatie, kan OpenSimulator gebruikt worden om een virtuele omgevingen te simuleren vergelijkbaar met Second Life™ (inclusief client compatibiliteit). Andere omgevingen, protocollen en mogelijkheden zijn ondersteund via add on modulen. Voor een lijst van beschikbare modulen, bezoekt u onze [http://forge.opensimulator.org/gf/ forge site].
 +
 +
Alhoewel OpenSimulator nog steeds als '''alpha software''' beschouwd wordt, doen veel mensen er toch al[http://technorati.com/search/opensim?authority=a4&language=en spannende dingen mee].
 +
 +
=== Mogelijkheden ===
 +
Ook al is OpenSimulator relatief jonge software, het heeft al veel nuttige mogelijkheden
 +
* Ondersteund creatie van meerdere 'worlds' in een enkele applicatie.
 +
* Ondersteund meerdere clients and protocolen - verbind tot dezelfde wereld op hetzelfde moment middels meerdere protocollen.
 +
* Uitgebreide beschikbaarheid voor aanpassing van uw avatar, met aangepaste kleren, skins en gedragen objecten.
 +
* Realtime Physics Simulatie, maak keuze uit meerdere engines zoals ODE, PhysX, Bullet en meer.
 +
* De mogelijkheid om in real time objecten te maken in uw wereld(en), middels de world building tools. Wat u ziet, zien anderen.
 +
* Binnen de wereld kunt u doen aan applicatie ontwikkeling gebruikmakend van verschillende talen, zoals: LSL/OSSL, C#, JScript en VB.NET

=== Using OpenSimulator ===

The fastest way to get started using OpenSimulator is to create an account on [http://osgrid.org OSGrid], then download the [http://opensim-viewer.sourceforge.net/ Hippo Viewer] or [http://secondlife.com/support/downloads.php Linden Lab's Second Life viewer] (amongst others) to connect to OSGrid.  This process should take no longer than 10 minutes, and will give you a flavor for what OpenSimulator is like.
 +
 +
You can also easily connect to any one of the many [[Grid_List|public grids]] on the internet.
 +

{{Template:FrontPageSidebar}}
 +
 +
OpenSimulator is a 3D Application Server. It can be used to create a virtual environment (or world) which can be accessed through a variety of clients, on multiple protocols. OpenSimulator allows you to develop your environment using the technologies you feel work best - we've designed the software to be easily extendable through [[Getting Started with Region Modules|loadable modules]] to build completely custom configurations. OpenSimulator is released under a [[BSD License]], making it both open source, and commercially friendly to embed in products.
 +
 +
Out of the box, OpenSimulator can be used to simulate a virtual environment similar to Second Life™ (including client compatibility).  Other environments, protocols and features are supported via add on modules.  For a list of available modules check out our [http://forge.opensimulator.org/gf/ forge site].

=== Features ===
 +
Even though OpenSimulator is relatively young software it already has many useful features
 +
* Supports creating multiple 'worlds' in a single application instance.
 +
* Supports multiple clients and protocols - access the same world at the same time via multiple protocols.
 +
* Extensive ability to customize your avatar, both with custom clothing, skins, and attached objects.
 +
* Realtime Physics Simulation, with multiple engine options including ODE, PhysX, Bullet and more.
 +
* The ability to create content real time in the environment using in world building tools. What you see is what you get.
