Did you ever dream to become an owner of the world? To make it as
on your wish, to develop it, to stimulate people settled there to
make the world more prosperous and better? Now you have the opportunity
to be a member of a virtual community and if you succeed in its life
you will get the chance to be the master of amazing virtual world.
This is like game, but it is more than just a game. ICITY is a unique
online application for various categories of users and it serves as
conductor to a whole series of net resources. ICITY provides for possibilities
of different activities such as communication, entertainments or shopping.
Moreover ICITY was created as a part of Mediterranean Sea coast and
its beautiful environment will make your activities more pleasant
ICITY as a great virtual world has different architectural objects
both invented and based on real prototypes. At first you get to the
Tower from where you can see sights of the whole inland area of ICT
and can be teleported to any part of it. The total size of ICITY area
is about 3 square kilometers (scalable). You will see the famous Greek
Arena, medieval Arab town Old Jaffa, Teleporting Globe and other constructions.
Every of them has its own functions, for instance Old Jaffa and Kibbutz
allows users to rent a virtual flat, Flea Market gives access to interface
of trade and change of virtual objects (here you can obtain furniture
for your virtual flat, house appliances, pets, plants, etc.), Night
Clubs situated underground has the opportunity to show video and play
music. Anyway simple virtual walk along the seaside, to the lake or
hills will give you a pleasure.
ICITY is also of great interest and value because of its organization
of network community. It has its own social structure, status hierarchy
and mechanisms of its modification. This community is designed to
handle large amounts of concurrent users: 400 to start with and scalable
to numbers beyond 3000. Every user is represented by avatar and its
appearance can be chosen at his/her own discretion between more then
30 characters. Every member of the community has own rank, and the
more active and useful his activity for the virtual community, the
more his rank (increased automatically). For example, to increase
his rank you can organize a party or create a nice architectural object.
In other words the social structure of the community takes into account
the idea of self-organization of the system and stimulation users
to the active virtual life.
Of course, the creation of ICITY demanded huge efforts and experience
in programming and supporting the structure of network community but
it was worthy of it. Now the project is in Beta testing stage. Join
