==Modules==
+
= Services =
  
These are either application or region modules which can be added to the OpenSim core distribution to provide extra functionality.
+
These can be divided into projects that provide a completely replacement for the ROBUST services backend or individual services.
  
None are listed yet!
+
== Complete replacements ==
  
==Other related software==
+
* [https://github.com/openmetaversefoundation/simiangrid/commits/master SimianGrid] - A ROBUST services replacement which replaces the whole ROBUST stack with an alternative implementation based on PHP.  The necessary support for SimianGrid is included in core OpenSimulator.
These are independent implementations of OpenSimulator services, such as the user server or the inventory server (also known as UGAI).
+
 
 +
== Individual services ==
 +
 
 +
OpenSimulator services are architected such that an individual service (e.g. the asset service) can be replaced or added without having to change other services.
 +
 
 +
* [https://github.com/coyled/sras Simple Ruby Asset Service (SRAS)] - This is a replacement for the ROBUST asset service.  It stores assets on disk, does compression and deduplication of identical assets.  Some installation instructions are [http://onikenkon.com/sras/ here].
 +
* [https://github.com/mcortez/flotsam Flotsam Groups] - This was the only available groups service until [[V2 Groups]] was added to core.
 +
 
 +
= Web Interfaces=
 +
 
 +
These are web frontends for OpenSimulator, either to allow users to register and perform other functions or for administrators to control the OpenSimulator installation (or both!).
 +
 
 +
See [[Webinterface]]
 +
 
 +
= Region Modules =
 +
These are region modules which can be added to the OpenSimulator core distribution to provide extra functionality.
 +
 
 +
* [https://github.com/justincc/GenericMessagingModule GenericMessagingModule] - An example module to illustrate how an OpenSimulator extension can use the LLUDP GenericMessage packet to convey arbitrary data between a client/viewer and the simulator.
 +
* [https://github.com/JakDaniels/OpenSimTide OpenSimTide] - An OpenSimulator region module which adds tides to your regions. You can control the tide period and height change via settings in OpenSim.ini and enable tide info to be chatted to the region for use in scripts in boats and waves. Tides only render properly on regions that are not adjacent, i.e. 1x1 islands.
 +
 
 +
= Tools =
 +
 
 +
== Archives ==
 +
 
 +
* [https://github.com/justincc/opensimulator-tools/tree/master/analysis/oarinfo oarinfo] - Currently a very basic python script that prints out some OAR information (e.g. number of contained assets).
 +
 
 +
== Control ==
 +
* [https://github.com/justincc/opensimulator-tools/tree/master/infrastructure/control/osimctrl osimctrl] - A set of scripts to allow start, stop, restart, autorestart, etc. of an OpenSimulator instance from the command line using the GNU screen utility.
 +
 
 +
== Inventory ==
 +
 
 +
* [http://www.secondinventory.com/ Second Inventory] - **This is no longer available**. For years it was abandonware: still for sale but nobody at home to answer support issues. Finally the WEB site was removed (2017) so people are no longer tempted to send money. This product was written before mesh was available for OpenSimulator and never supported backing up mesh objects. This was a Windows based client that could be used to back up and restore objects from Second Life™ as well as from various OpenSimulator based grids. It allowed you to back up objects from the Second Life™ main grid, and restore them into OpenSimulator grids.
 +
* [http://grimore.org/opensim/rake Rake] - Created as an alternative to Second Inventory, but OpenSource and free to use. Rake is meant to dump assets (textures, animations,  notecards, scripts, etc...) from either Second Life™ or OpenSim to your local hard-drive. Like Second Inventory it cannot backup mesh.
 +
* [http://opensimulator.org/wiki/Inventory_Archives Inventory Archives] If you are looking for a way to back your stuff up. Also read [http://opensimulator.org/wiki/OpenSim_Archives OpenSim Archives].
 +
== Log Analysis ==
 +
 
 +
* [https://github.com/justincc/opensimulator-tools/tree/master/analysis/opensimulator-log-analyzer Ola] - A very simple Python script that print out some stats given a simulator or robust service log (chiefly unique user numbers).
 +
 
 +
* [http://www.spellscape.co.uk/home/news/logview OSLogView] - A C# application for displaying log files with the same color coding as the console itself. Includes error highlighting and UUID highlighting.
 +
 
 +

It is still a bit primitive and sometimes can be flaky. This software is in no way supported by the OpenSIM team, please contact its creator for support.

[edit] Introduction

This is a page which lists software packages that are related to OpenSimulator but are not part of the core project. Opensimulator is not responsible for the content referenced by these links. Note, OpenSimulator used to have a "Forge", basically a OpenSim Hosted Code Repo of Software for OpenSim, but this is no longer in existance.

[edit] Viewers

These are the client programs that allow you to connect to an OpenSimulator installation and interact with it.

See Connecting.

[edit] Distributions

  • 3D Head Tracking Software - The idea here is that Johnny has written an application that will allow real3d perspective using a WiiMote & a modified set of safety glasses. Johnny includes all of the source and several sample applications to get this moving forward. Would someone like to pick this up and build us a real3D interface for the SL browser? It's not as hard as you think.
  • Edusim on Opensim - Edusim is a Cave Automatic Virtual Environment based concept of lesson driven 3D virtual worlds on the classroom interactive whiteboard or classroom interactive surface. Currently Edusim on Opencobalt Cobalt exists but tweaking a client and making Opensim "finger friendly" would seem to be a relatively straight forward task.
