Welcome to Virtual Worlds Grid
How To Enter
First you will need to create an account if you don't have one yet. Click "Create Account" at the upper left of this page, follow the instructions, and return here when your account has been created.
Then, you will need one of the following viewers;
Next, follow the directions below for setting up a viewer on your desktop. These are for the Hippo Viewer, but they are about the same for Meerkat and Emerald.
Please be aware that, for now, the avatar for new accounts is the original Ruth character, and you will need to create body parts and clothes from your inventory folder menu, and then wear them before you can edit that default avatar or her clothes. You can also change the avatar's gender only after you create and wear a new shape to edit.
the Hippo Viewer, Meerkat and Emerald all let you type in or choose to add custom grids like Virtual Worlds Grid into a grid box through a menu.
The login uri That you will need to type into the Add Grid box is:
Find the little blue Hippo on your desktop and double click it. (Other viewers will have their own icon)
Click on the "Grid" button
At the top of the menu that pops up, click the add button
Then click apply, and ok.
Fill in your account user first name, Last name, and password, then click "Login"
Here are instructions for the Second Life Viewer, which is the most commonly used. Other viewers allow more flexibility for adding grids like Virtual Worlds College.
First, you will need to download the Second Life Viewer (often called a client), and install it if you don't have it yet. To make things easier, let the installation program put an icon on your desktop if it asks to do so.
The viewer is available here at http://secondlife.com/support/downloads.php.
if you have it installed, click on the desktop icon shaped like a hand, and you should get a screen like this:
Next, press the control, shift, G keys at the same time to get the grid box shown below:
It will probably have the word Agni typed inside of it. Remember whatever it has there, because that is what you would use if you want to log into Second Life instead of the Virtual Worlds College.
type 188.8.131.52 :8002 (not a static IP, so it changes from time to time. I'll keep it up to date as best I can), or www.vwc.selfip.net:8002 into the box shown above circled in red (if it will fit, some releases of Second Life won't let you type an address that long) .
fill in your first name and last name, then your password that you created or were given for Virtual Worlds College, not the ones you use for Second life. Hit the login button, and you should see our little world.
