It was a very successful journey, and I hope everyone had a good time. Read on for a summary, some pics, and instructions on how you can make the journey yourself.
Our starting point was the region Scooter on jokaydiaGRID, and a total of 21 avatars made the journey together.
Since the region Scooter on jokaydiaGrid and the region Lbsa Plaza on OSGrid are very far away from each other on the Hypergrid (about 9,000 regions apart), we had to make 3 hypergrid jumps and visit 2 different intermediate grids during our journey. A challenge!
From there, we all jumped to the region Gateway1 on Sanctuary grid. We were very fortunate to meet Shaun Emerald, the grid owner, who was kind enough to welcome us as we arrived. Thank you again Shaun!
For our next jump, we all hopped to the region GermanGrid Gate on GermanGrid.
And finally, a jump to the region Lbsa Plaza on OSGrid.
Lbsa Plaza is the main landing point for OSGrid, so there are always some folks hanging out. I saw a few comments from folks who were amazed by the sudden arrival of over 20 visitors via the Hypergrid. We even ran Justin Clark-Casey, an OpenSim core developer. Nice to see you again, Justin!
If you’d like to make this journey yourself, just get an account on jokaydiaGRID, log in to the region Scooter on jokaydiaGRID (it’s the default arrival point for new accounts), and then follow these instructions:
Make each of the jumps by following these 4 simple steps
1) Open your World Map in your viewer.
2) In the text box next to the Search button, enter the Hypergrid Address.
3) Click the Search button and wait for the map to move to the destination region.
4) Click the Teleport button.
