ActiveWorlds 3D-Browser

AW is a great 3D-Chat client, that loads Objects (RWX format) and a "map" from a server and renders a 3D environment (which has a really good graphics engine!) where oneselves can visit places or meet other people and chat with them. It is also possible to build your own house there.

There are many other 3D content providers who also use the AW client software. e.g. City4ALL (free citizenship!), Dreamland Park, CyberNetWorlds, NightShift ... Each of them offers a couple of "worlds" (like "channels" in 2d chats).

Additional Comments

installs only after ies4linux in ies4linux prefix, plus you need msvcp60.dll in system32 folder.If you use older 3.x version you dont need additional dll, you can check it in russian universe client but works in direct3d,opengl and software rendering mode, with some bugs in opengl. a little slower in comparison with windows, but usable
