It's probably easier to say what a virtual world isn't first. In general, virtual worlds are non-competitive, meaning they are not a game in the sense that you can "win". There is no specific goal other than enjoyment.
A virtual world is an environment where people can share and participate in 3-D creations. You can simply explore what others have made, just hang out or, if inclined, build your own dream.
Firstly, you will need a suitable viewer (similar to a browser but designed specifically for virtual worlds. We recommend Firestorm Viewer, which can be downloaded here..
Be sure to get the Opensim (OS) version, not the Second Life (SL) version as the SL viewer will not allow connection to other virtual worlds.
