A DTA badge page
- This page has the information we think people need to travel the Hypergrid with SceneGate.
- It will be updated as needed
What is the Hypergrid?
- A grid of grids. A lot of OpenSim grids connected so you can travel from one to another.
- Like a national highway system connects cities. But much faster.
- You just teleport. May take nearly a minute.
- Key terms: region. hypergrid address, suitcase, places panel

What is a region?
- And how is it different from a sim?
- The name sim is short for simulator, a program simulating some land.
- That land used to be a plot 256 x 256 meters (about 840 feet on a side).
- OpemSim can put a much larger area on a single simulator.
- An area run by a single simulator still has a single address on its grid.
- That is called a region; the size can vary from 256x256 meters up.
- A hypergrid address looks like this: grid.kitely.com:8002:Marian Island
- To travel, put the HG address into the Find bar of the world man, click Find, TP
You carry things in your suitcase
- It is in your inventory and has folders matching your inventory.
- On your HG travels, you can only access things in your suitcase.
- You can put only exportable things in your suitcase
- Anything you get on the Hypergrid goes into your suitcase.
- You probably want to unpack your suitcase when you get back to your home grid.
- And a big suitcase may slow your HG travel
Take a landmark in your grid
- Click Places button (globe graphic, right side)
- In Places panel, click + sign to add something.
