The UK Turk Grid is a self contained virtual world within the larger family of OpenSim which stand for Open Simulator. It is very much like Second Life. It uses the same technology. People flocking here from Second Life or the now defunct Inworldz grid might be disappointed to find that OpenSim does not seem to have very many users. Second Life has thousands of active users and a great number of busy clubs and role play regions but it costs more and it is very much a commercial environment. Many of the grids ( independent worlds within OpenSim ) are not for profit organisations like the two biggest grids Metropolis and OS Grid. 

Our grid is a great place for anyone looking to manage their own world or region within our grid. You decide who gets access to it, what content you put on it and you can use it to build your own creations safely without any fear of the grid owners stealing your objects. It is also very cost effective. A region in the UK Turk grid starts at just €5 ( 5 Euros ) against around $150 dollars in Second Life. That is a huge incentive. It is also why so many grids have builders and creators working away for 90% of the time on their own projects rather than socializing as they tend to do in Second Life.

If you have an Occulus Rift headset you can use this in any OpenSim world. If you come from Second Life or Inworldz then you pretty much already know how things work and it won't be completely alien to you. Even if you come from Active Worlds or Utherverse etc you will find many things are familiar to you and not very difficult to pick up. You can build things here. You can share projects with other people and build an entire community if you want. You can also backup and save your creations to be used later on another grid or even in Second Life. 

Perhaps the best aspect of Opensim is the hypegrid. The hypergrid links many of the OpenSim grids to each other in a similar way that websites are linked to each other by a url. The only difference is that you teleport to whichever destination you fancy visiting. This means that you can live on a quiet and peaceful grid like the UKTurk Grid and then when you feel like a change or you want to socialize you just teleport to another destination. There are so many destinations to choose from. The Hypergrid Directory is a good place to start. You can also find 

We are a small friendly team based in the UK and in Turkey so catch us in world if you need any help or are new to Opensim and we will try and help you as much as we can.  We won't steal your content and we currently have regions available for just €4 Euros ( $ 5 US dollars or £3.75 UK Sterling ).
