Hi Gelin,

See http://opensimulator.org . We have been using mono to power a server
for shared 3d virtual spaces (virtual worlds) since the project started
around 2007. We do use a third party http server and threading
utilities. The application uses several server stacks that perform
separate functions that communicate with each other, with one providing
the main interface to the user-client.
