Finding your way around Second Life


I do not find it particularly easy to find my way around Second Life, or tell people how to get to places. So I am very pleased to find a web site that allows you to make a location link that you can use to tell people where to go.

All you need to do is feed in the location of the site you are visiting to SLurlBuilder, and that then gets made into a link for people to follow.

Here is the link which will take you to the virtual birth unit I am working on in the SLENZ project, in Kowhai.

Go and have a look and get back to me with what you think.

Following on that, this video tutorial on slurls by the inimitable Torley Linden is really useful too:

Hope all is well!

I took a visit, I think I was in the right place is there a pink wall and a dark pink wall there?
Otherwise it looked like a big place.

It has to be 'big' so people can move around it easily with camera views etc. You are all welcome to the grand opening whenever that is.
