Hi everyone,

I was told that there is a way to find a location, say the Ivory Tower, using the find screen then clicking on the name and teleporting there. Well, there is no teleport function button that I can see within the find screen. Plz help!

Thx.

I just tried the Ivory Tower in Find. There is a "teleport" and "map" button at the bottom. Perhaps you tried and expected to be teleported directly to the Ivory Tower which would be incorrect. You will arrive at the nearest teleport with a red beam marking your destination to guide you the rest of the way.

Hey, Brig... If you search for something under 'Find Places,' it should bring up a list of likely matches. When you click on one entry, a larger picture appears on the right hand side of the search box. Under the picture should be a few buttons-- one is 'Map' (to let you see where it is before you go there) and another is 'Teleport,' to send you as close as possible. Hope that helps!

Thank you both for the info. I believe the problem is i can't see the buttons cuz they are too low on the screen. I will try and see if I can resize the window to get them to show up.

I really appreciate the great help I have received today from everyone in the two forums I have posted in. The responses have been super fast and very informative. It's a credit to the game and the community. Thanks everyone!

Brig, a warm welcome to SL. What resolution do you have your screen at? 1024x768 is minimum for not cutting schtuff off. Hope you find your way to the Ivory Tower, happy building and if you'd like, send the maker of the tower (I'd call him an overlord if he wasn't so nice), Lumiere Noir, a note! Hope you make many friends here. :D

If for some reason you must run SL at lower than the "Torley Limit" noted above, please be aware that click-dragging on non-active (background) areas on the dialog boxes allows them to be moved.

Wow, Torley just entered the ranks of "Van Allen", "Plank", "Hubble", and "Hawking". Coolies. *me runs off in search of a fundamental constant or field to name after himself*

Thanks for the warm welcomes and much needed help and well wishes from everyone i've heard from in these forums! I am unacustomed to such niceties due in large part from playing SWG for the past year but I'm happy to say that is history and Second Life is the future.

The screen resolution was the problem. Once I toggled full screen and removed the toobar the two buttons showed up at the bottom and I was able to teleport right to the Ivory Tower. I spent the next several hours there going through the very inforative tutorials, thx in large part to Lumiere Noir's (and other unknown parties atm) self sacrifice and dedication to educating me and countless others new to the game. I am returning there after this post to continue my studies and practices. This is so much fun! :)

In any case, thx and cudos goes out to everyone that has helped me thus far! I would like to name names but there are so many that I have to just say 'everyone' and please know that you are included in the lineup. I haven't felt this good about a game since...well...never! lol

Cheers everyone!!
