Is there any .world library ?

I have a simple question, is there a world library somewhere ?

I know but I feel like a world sharing tool would offer worlds of minimum 400m2 populated by models than focusing on a precise definition of a single model.

This question makes me believe that there should be one somewhere but I cannot find it.

Thanks for any help TTDM,

Several worlds are installed together with Gazebo. You can see the list here:

Any of these worlds can be loaded from any directory by pre-pending worlds, for example:

gazebo worlds/ currently only supports models, but it will also support worlds in the near future.

I should have added your first link in my question since I already launched all the worlds inside this directory to see what was available, my bad. Your second link, however, does answer my question. Great to see this project coming directly from the foundation! If i may, it could be put in the spotlights so that people contribute more to it : in the main page of the gazebo website,there is a link: Useful Link/simulation Model which lead to the list of models, on top of this page a few words ...

linking to IgnitionFuel could be added. Or even better, in the main page, the link could be "Simulation Model and Worlds" which would open a page with quick links to either the model directory, the world directory and ignition fuel. The 3 links being complementary :model for the quality of each of its components, worlds because opening all the world is, to my experience, a great way to discover some gazebo features and ignition fuel for all the non official, community contributed ressrouces!
