Touring Second Life Guide

Want to know how to tour Second Life, use a heads up display device and return to your current location?

Create a landmark - save your current location for returning later.
  • Under the World menu on the menubar, select Create a Landmark. Close the landmark that appears. It is filed in the Landmarks folder in your inventory.
Using the Tour Notecard
  • To teleport to a new location, you can open the tour notecard in your Notecards folder and click on a landmark (has a push pin symbol) to open it.
  • Select teleport to visit it.
Don't have a Touring Second Life kit? Send a message in SL to Lyr Lobo to request it.

  • Click the Hitchhiker's device to copy it to your inventory from your Lyr Lobo's Touring in Second Life notecard. Skip this step if you already have a copy.
When you have the Boracay Hitchhiker's Guide to SL in your inventory:
  • In your objects folder, right click and wear the Boracay Hitchhiker's Guide to SL.
  • A Heads-up Display (HUD) device appears on your display and a Travel HUD requests permission to act on your control inputs in the upper right corner of your display.
  • Select the Accept button in the upper left corner of your display.
See an example of the HUD in the following image:
