The Hypergrid Adventurers Club is no longer meeting regularly. Please check out the Hypergrid Safari for information on a new group that is conducting weekly tours across the Metaverse. See you there!
Interested in exploring Opensim and interconnected Virtual Worlds?
The Hypergrid Adventurers Club is a group of explorers interested in discussing and exploring virtual worlds on the Hypergrid.
For a great summary of the history of the Hypergrid and how it is evolving, read “Towards HG 2.0” by Diva Canto (the inventor of the Hypergrid protocol).
It doesn’t matter if you’re completely new to virtual worlds and the Hypergrid or if you’re a seasoned veteran. We all learn and help each other together.
The first half of each meeting is a roundtable discussion about current developments in Opensim, as well as an opportunity for everyone to share information about their own projects and discoveries. The rest of each meeting is a group tour of exciting new virtual worlds on the Hypergrid. Records of our tours can be found on this blog.
When are the meetings and where are they held?
We have no predefined meeting schedule or a fixed starting point, but we’ll always announce all the details of a meeting on our HGAC Google Group Mailing List. So be sure to subscribe to our Google Group and keep an eye out for upcoming adventures.
What virtual world viewer software should I be using?
I highly recommend the Singularity viewer. It works on Mac/PC/Linux, and allows you to access Second Life as well as any OpenSim-based grid.
Where can I find a simple overview of how to make Hypergrid jumps and a list of some places to visit?
Check out the Hypergrid Landmarks page.
If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You also can often find me on Pathlandia.
And if you have recommendations for interesting places you think our group should explore on the Hypergrid, please post them in the comments.
We look forward to you joining us as we travel the Frontier of the Metaverse. The future will be connected, so lets explore together!
