How to view the VRML Virtual Worlds

Viewing the VRML virtual worlds generally requires a PC computer with a 586 (e.g., Pentium) processor or a Macintosh PowerPC computer and at least 16 MB of RAM. Also, a VRML 2.0 viewer plug-in for your web browser is required. A VRML viewer plug-in is a small program that allows you to view 3D scenes within your web browser. If your web browser does not currently have a VRML viewer plug-in installed, you will have to download and install it.
Refer to the table below for the VRML viewer plug-in(s) available for your web browser. You may download a VRML viewer plug-in by clicking on its name in the table below:

Tips on viewing the VRML Virtual Worlds

Because the virtual 3D worlds are multimedia intensive, you may experience slow performance while navigating through them. Here are some helpful tips for increasing navigation performance:
1. Quit out of any other running applications (i.e., only have your web browser running).
2. Resize your browser window smaller. In this case, view the 3D world in the "small viewing window" instead of the "standard viewing window" (see below).
3. For WorldView plug-in users, set the "Graphics When Moving" setting to "Flat Shading" rendering mode.
4. For WorldView plug-in users, turn the Prevent Collisions setting "OFF" so that you may travel "through" buildings and other objects in the scene. Walking through a world with the Prevent Collisions setting "ON" may slow you down and become frustrating, since you'll have to walk around all buildings and other objects in the scene.
5. For Cosmo plug-in users, turn the Gravity setting "OFF" if you want to raise or lower your view of the scene. When the Gravity setting is "ON", you will be automatically brought back to ground level if you move above or below the ground level.
