‘CyberTown’, originally ‘ColonyCity’ (1997-2012)

Virtual online community begun in 1997, “users were able to have jobs within the community, earning virtual money called CC’s (CityCash) that could be used to buy 3D homes and items. Each user was allowed a free 2D home and could locate it within any of a number of colonies subdivided into neighborhoods and blocks.”
