Hypergrid jump regions on Openvue and OSGrid

The Opensimulator-based Openvue and OSGrid have regions which act as gateways for jumping between grids using the HyperGrid facilities on OpenSim.

The routings between Openvue and OSGrid regions makes use of these HyperGrid jump regions to allow for movement within a range of 4096,4096 locations on the region x,y location map on each grid.  It is a viewer restriction that any jump be less than that range.

 Vue-9000 on the Openvue Grid is actually located at 9017,9017 at present to avoid interaction in map search with a region already placed at 9000,9000 on OSGrid.

Trans---~Formation

Trans---~Formation is a trans-media virtual environment interpretation, created by 3 artists and one virtual world avatar, of a formation of modular kinetic objects along with accompanying music and images.  It was originally created in November 2007 by Austin Tate and Ai Austin based on a design for a robotic sculpture by Richard Brown, and now has its new home on the VCE region in Second Life, and a clone is on the OpenVCE region on the Openvue grid in OpenSim which can be visited via the OpenSimulator Hypergrid.  Make sure you have media playing to listen to the soundtrack and see the associated images by Julian Wagstaff.
