Bath of Venus in FriendsHangout

FriendsHangout is a realtively new multiuser virtualworld 3D platform that uses the Unity engine. As a result, the graphics are really quite state of the art with realtime shadows, and exceptional shaders making water reflective and realistic.

I created this world to focus, very simply, on the luxury of water in FriendsHangout. Bath of Venus has been built by me in a number of 3d platforms as part of the Land of Whyst, but it certainly shines here.

You can visit this world in FriendsHangout by clicking this link. If you do not have the Unity3d plugin, you will be prompted for a download. I just love it that Unity runs in a web browser! I also love the fact that FriendsHangout has purchased a membership to ASCAP, which allows users to play a large body of music within their worlds. I was happy to find that some music by Lisa Gerrard was licensed through ASCAP, and this is the sultry piece you hear when your avatar enters Bath of Venus.
