Let’s Build and Share Lists of Hypergrid Addresses

“Can we really go anywhere?”

“You name it.  If it’s down here.”

Read on to learn how you can easily find the Hypergrid Address of any region on ReactionGrid’s public grid, and how you can share your own list if you have one.

Chris Hart is CTO at ReactionGrid, and she’s just created a very useful public tool.

It’s a list of every region on ReactionGrid’s public grid, and it contains every region’s Hypergrid Address.

The data comes from the same database that feeds each console on startup, which means it is 100% live and always up to date.

Anyone can take a look at this list in the ReactionGrid knowledgebase.

So now, if you are logged into another Opensim grid and are on a region that is Hypergrid-enabled, you can easily find a way to jump to any region on ReactionGrid’s public grid.

Four Caveats:

  1. To successfully make any Hypergrid jump, you have to have set your Home location and have relogged since you first set it.  The Hypergrid protocol needs to know your Home location before you can make any jumps at all.
  2. If you’re trying to Hypergrid jump to a region that is more than 4096 regions away from where you are, you’ll have to make an intermediate jump.
  3. ReactionGrid is currently running version 1.0 of Hypergrid.  So if you’re trying to jump from a grid that is running version 1.5, you won’t be able to make it.  We’re working to upgrade all of ReactionGrid to version 1.5 as soon as possible, so stay tuned for news on that.
  4. Use an approved 3rd party viewer that supports accessing different grids (including SL).  I recommend Imprudence.

How to make a Manual Hypergrid Jump in 4 easy steps:

  1. Open your World Map in your viewer.
  2. In the text box next to the Search button on the World Map, enter the Hypergrid Address (leave out the “secondlife://” part).
  3. Click the Search button on the World Map and wait for the World Map to move to the destination region.
  4. Click the Teleport button on the World Map.

If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, try building and installing your own Hypergate Portal on your own region.  Makes a great conversation piece!  Impress your friends and neighbors!

Got a similar list?  Share it!

If you are running your own Opensim grid and have a similar list like ReactionGrid’s that you want to share with the public, please let us know about it in the comments.

I’ve started a wiki page to index these lists.  If you’ve created a ReactionGrid account, you can log into the wiki with the same information and add a new list to that page if you wish.

More ways to share information about your own Hypergrid-enabled regions

Join the HyperGate Network by simply rezzing one of their special HyperGates on your region.  And be sure to contact the folks at Hyperica to add detailed and descriptive information about your region to their growing database.

The future will be connected.  So it’s in everyone’s best interest to share as much information about our Hypergrid-enabled regions as possible.
