DreamWorld is an OpenSimulator world to demonstrate an easy to use OpenSim setup program called the “Outworldz Installer” created by Fred Beckhusen, aka Ferd Frederix. It includes MySQL, the Diva Distribution (“D2”) of OpenSim 0.8.2.1, Diva’s WiFi admin interface and the OnLook viewer. It sets up a sample virtual world with HyperGrid capability along with options to load a range of alternative content via OpenSim Archive (OAR) files.

Fix to OpenSim.exe.config
It is possible that some Windows .NET4 environments might have problems loading some modules… reporting an error with…
An attempt was made to load an assembly from a network location which would have caused the assembly to be sandboxed in previous versions of the .NET Framework. This release of the .NET Framework does not enable CAS policy by default, so this load may be dangerous. If this load is not intended to sandbox the assembly, please enable the loadFromRemoteSources switch. See http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=155569 for more information.
A fix was made to OpenSim in bin/OpenSim.exe.config (and bin/Robust.exe.config though that is not used yet in the Diva D2 distribution) on 23-Nov-2013 (git master a68d1fa) for this, adding the following line to the <runtime> section…
<loadFromRemoteSources enabled="true" />
If you see this error in the Outworldz console or log file (in …Outworldz\OutworldzFiles\Opensim\binOpenSim.log), check this line is present in the bin/OpenSim.exe.config. If not, add it and run again.
A later development is Outworldz DreamGrid which provided a Robust grid based setup with Hypergrid capabilities and lots of well configures modules.
