Here is what beginners might know
OpenSimulator has big sims
- A sim in OpenSimulator can be much bigger than 256X256 meters.
- In Kitely it can be 1024 meters on a side. That is about .6 square miles
- Depending on city, that is 6 to 12 city blocks.
- Other grids may have larger sims.

Arriving from what origin?
From the Hypergrid
- Travel tips for the Hypergrid. A DTA content page
- Hypergrid address
- The grid may have a web page (Kitely does) with the HG address.
- A sim can have only one hypergrid address,
- generally to the 256 X 256 area at lower left corner
- When people come in via Hypergrid address, their default landing point is 128, 128.
- You can take them to another place (at least to coordinates from 1 to 255):
- Create a parcel that includes 128, 128 and your preferred landing point.
- Set parcel landing place to your preferred landing point.
- There you could offer teleports to other places.
- People can also arrive by landmark (from the local grid or Hypergrid).
- Landmarks can take people to any spot unless you have a landing point set,
From your grid:
- If you set no landing point:
- Visitors without landmark will arrive where the Hypergrid traffic lands
- Visitors with landmark will land at the destination of the landmark.
- Visitors can use Double-click TP on a surface or on the map.
- An OpenSimulator place can be big, with many destinations. The landmark solution. Land manager skills
