Hyperica Lookup HG Teleport Script

The script below works by pulling in data from the following page:


Simply replace the URL at the top of the script with the codes for which region you want to go to. For example, you can use it to automatically look up the newest Retail destination, or the most highly rated Arts region.

There are twelve categories that lookup page uses, so this script can be used as the basis for a menu-based travel system.

It works with both touch and collision (just delete the one you don’t need) and the LLMap script, which you can replace with osTeleport if you prefer — OSTeleportAgent works instantly, no confirmation step needed — but requires OS scripts to be enabled on your region (if you don’t know what this is, they’re probably not). And since osTeleportAgent scripts work instantly, anyone who accidentally bumps into a gate will get teleported to another grid!

osTeleportAgent( WhomToTeleport, SimAddress, LandingPoint, LookAt );

All the parts that work are thanks to Paul Emery. The parts that don’t are all my fault.

WordPress kept mangling the script, so here it is again as a text file download.

Please let me know if there are any problems with it.

     this is way more complicated then secondlife so many people stiill dont understand secondlife never mind hyper grid

    • Say you’re a school or company with a private grid. You might need to have a private grid for security reasons, or compliance reasons, or cost reasons, or to have backups, or whatever.  But now you’re pretty isolated — it’s just you and your students or employees on this tiny world with nothing on it.

      But wait — you can put up a hypergate to, say, OSGrid or Jokaydia Grid or FrancoGrid or GermanGrid and now you can just walk through the hypergate to attend events on those grids, or to visit their freebie stores. If you go to GermanGrid, you can even shop using the multi-grid OMC currency and bring stuff back with you to your private grid.

      (You don’t need to have a hypergate to do this, of course — you can just type the hypergrid address into Map-Search. But hypegrid addresses can be complicated, and a hypergate makes it easy for your students or employees to travel abroad.)

      Or say you’ve downloaded and installed the Diva Distro four-region mini-grid. It’s free and comes with a nice set of instructions for how to set it up. And you’ve got a friend who’s running his own Diva Distro. And another friend, and another friend. You can set up hypergates to each other’s grids and just walk through the gate to visit your friends’ land. 

      You can link as many mini-grids like this as you like. You can create a giant universe for role playing games, for simulations, or for anything else you’d like. 

      Considering that four regions on Second Life cost $1,200 a month, that’s a pretty good deal.

      It does take some technical skills. Setting up a hypergrid-enabled grid means that you need to route traffic to the right ports, which requires router configuration. And setting up a hypergate requires the ability to install a script in an object. 

      But again — you’d be saving $1,200 a month. That might be enough incentive to learn how to do this, and help your friends do it, as well.

    Out of curiosity, is it possible to see the spreadsheet (at least I assume it was a spreadsheet) that this script pulled from? The page appears to have gone missing, but it would be useful as a learning exercise. Thanks.
