Collaborative Live Programming Environment for Open Metaverse Worlds
Plus Powerful 3D Worlds Embedded In Any Existing Website
LOS ANGELES – November 10, 2022 – Croquet Corporation has announced the availability of Microverse World Builder, a browser based development environment for the Open Metaverse that lets web and web3 developers rapidly create multi-user 3D Metaverse worlds that can be published to any web server, completely independent of proprietary platforms.
Microverse World Builder includes the newest release of the core Croquet Microverse open source project (formerly known as Microverse IDE), a slate of new template virtual worlds that help developers jumpstart their efforts and a growing library of behaviors that can be applied to any object in a world. Available on GitHub at https://github.com/croquet/microverse, the Croquet Microverse World Builder is also rated as a top technology on Product Hunt. Product Hunt surfaces the best new products every day and is a place for product-loving enthusiasts to share and geek out about the latest mobile apps, websites, hardware projects, and tech creations.
One of the key new features of the World Builder is integration with Ready Player Me half body personalized avatars. Users can bring their own avatars into a Microverse world or use default avatars selected and customized by the developer. Developers can also adapt custom avatars based upon their designs and requirements.
World Builder also incorporates in-world voice chat with Dolby.io spatial audio providing advanced audio processing features such as dynamic audio leveling, advanced spatial audio and noise and echo reduction resulting in the best quality voice chat available today.
The open source community can contribute to this growing library of behaviors which will dramatically accelerate development velocity for everyone, making the Microverse World Builder even more powerful and useful.
A library of template worlds is also available on GitHub to further expedite developer efforts. They can be expanded, customized or in certain cases used as is. Templates available include:
- Infinite Procedural Outdoor World
- Outdoor Refinery
- Factory Floor
- University Campus
- Multiplayer Game
Because Microverse World Builder is based on open, standards-based web and browser technologies and can be published to any web server, 3D Metaverse worlds can be integrated to new and existing web sites to form a foundation of the Metaverse. Developers can build 3D ecommerce showrooms, Metaverse conference rooms equipped with Spatial Audio or a flexible, decentralized NFT gallery, all integrated to existing 2D websites and all with portals that can connect to the rest of the Metaverse. This begins the revolution of the 2D web to the 3D Metaverse.
