2015 HELP: HYPERGRID: Kitely: A simple way to move the landing point from center

A simple way to move the landing point from center
Kitely world pages and hypergrid landing points default to 128,128,nn.  You can put the welcome site at that point.  But you may want another place.  Here is a simple way to move it. 

  • Kitely web pages and hypergrid arrivals default to 128,128,z
  • If you want it elsewhere, try this:
  • Create a parcel to includes both the 128,128,z and your choice.
  • Use About Land - Options Tab to reset the landing point in the parcel 
  • The tools are Landing point and Teleport routing 
  • This only creates a force landing spot in the parcel you use.
  • People can TP freely to other parts of your world 

From Firestorm Wiki

Landing Point: Lists the coordinates of the landing point if set, or (none) if not set. The set button will set the landing point to your current avatar position, and the clear button will unset it. 
Teleport Routing: Determines where teleport landings are allowed for other users. Blocked means that teleports into the parcel are not allowed;Landing point indicates that teleports are limited to the landing point set above; Anywhere means that teleports may arrive at any location on the parcel.
Tested with Kitely pages.  Should work with HG landing points.  If it does not, somebody will probably tell us in comments.

How to handle a Hypergrid address 

From any Hypergrid-enabled grid, paste the address into the address bar of Firestorm and press enter. Or paste it into the world map search bar of any viewer, search, and click Teleport when the destination is found. If it doesn't work, don't give up. Try again in a minutes.  Sometimes the first try fails (probably times out).  And try again a few hours later. Some hypergrid destinations are offline part of the day.
