Landmarks, teleporting, and SLurls

Landmarks and teleporting

Landmarks

Landmarks are similar to bookmarks or favorites in a web browser. They record a location within the world of Mobius Grid, so you can teleport back there whenever you want.

To create a landmark for your current location, go to World Menu > Landmark This Place or click the icon in the location bar at the top of the Viewer.

Teleporting

To teleport, double-click a landmark or a location on the World Map, or click a saved location in your favorites bar.

  • Map - Choose World > World Map or World > Mini-Map.
  • Using SLurls - Click on a SLurl to display the Place Profile, then click Teleport to teleport there.

To offer to teleport a friend to your location:

  • Click
  • Click MY FRIENDS
  • Mouse over your friend's name then click
  • Click Teleport

Your friend will see a message offering to teleport them to your location; they can accept or refuse the offer.

Note: Your intended destination is marked with a red arrow. If you get a message that you can teleport no closer, simply put the landmark on your Map and fly or walk the rest of the way.

You can also use the Teleport buttons in Search listings to access locations. See Search FAQ for more information.

If you don't arrive at your intended destination

If you attempt to teleport somewhere, but don't arrive there, the estate owner may have set up a telehub (teleport hub) to control where visitors initially land. The telehub will be in the same region as your destination, but will generally provide new arrivals with orientation and other welcome information.

Now you will log in at the region you entered.

SLurls

SLurls and landmarks serve the same purpose. The main difference is that a SLurl is simply a text link, while a landmark is an inventory item type which can only be used inside of Mobius Grid.
