Abstract

Virtutopia is a framework for the design and maintenance of persistent virtual online worlds. In this project we designed, implemented and evaluated a proposed architecture for the first stage of Virtutopia. The initial architecture provides capabilities for networking, defining objects and behaviors, receiving user input and rendering output. The outcome is a network system, utilizing a hybrid client-server peer-to-peer architecture, combined with a 3D client interface capable of interacting with other clients in the virtual world.
