Why give the destination address in this format? It's because the low tech approach (you simply Highlight text, Ctrl C, then open your Map and Ctrl V into 'Search') works for all Viewers.
Our first port of call was Miranda the Welcome region of Adrean's World. Usually grid owner Adrean Flux is not available during the Safari hours, since she is in Florida. So it was a great treat to get the opportunity meet her. the grid has about 500 registered users, not surprising since the grid was founded in 2010.
dance in the Mayan Pyramid...
visit the Fairgrounds...
...or check out the free shopping...
|Arriving on Adrean's World|
Adrean Flux: i can see it
Minya Var: we have nice skulls
Adrean Flux: thats cus Spectrum took over Brighthouse [internet provider woes] ... Thirza am I correct in thinking HG Safari came out the Hypergrid Adventurers club for the reaction grid ?
Adrean Flux: I have a tour bus, shall we try it?
This is a grid worth visiting, you'll find people there in the evenings, Florida time.
Next up, Ramesh Ramloll's region RezMela Sandbox, on Kitely. This was a suggestion by Sunshine Szavanna, and a great one. Ramesh is working on virtual world tools he hopes to sell to researchers and educational institutions, through his company RezMela.
The sides show Media on a Prim, so you'll probably want to use Firestorm Viewer, and make sure you have Media set to play automatically, in Preferences - otherwise you'll only see white walls.
You stand inside a giant cube and then a script loads a panoramic picture from Google Streetview. Or in our case, dance, of course. There's a blue grandstand, for those who wish to sit, and that adds a bit of perspective to the effect. As did Lucy Afarensis, with her new giant avatar!

Then to mix it up, Ramesh invited us to suggest a link, here's Yara Eilde's suggestion (if chat lag has not gotten me confused)

Ramesh's take on instant rezzing has a decidedly more industrial-military feel, but equally impressive to stand in the control tower and watch him make skyscrapers and cooling towers pop up out of nowhere.
If you're interested in his project visit the website RezMela or try contacting him in Kitely or via the RezMela page on Facebook.
