Leighton Marjoram’s machinima explains what’s going on with HIE
Thanks to all those who joined the Load Test.
The main problems noted were slow rezzing and difficulties in reaching the grid from OSGrid. Many people found that they had more luck reaching the grid via Metropolis (hypergrid.org:80)
This is a small grid, with limited resources, so it helps if you can use a simple avatar without a lot of complex attachments.
You can find a modifiable HIE teeshirt on the Welcome area, among the Freebies.
Our first load test went really well, with about 30 attendees, and 25 present on the welcome sim. Whirli Placebo did the honors with a great session of covers and original songs. If you attended and had problems arriving, please let us know. Some OSgrid residents got an error message, but were able to arrive via Metropolis. Do you have anything to report?

The Expo will be on a dedicated grid hie.ddnss.org:8006
The Expo will be filmed. if you do not want to be filmed, it’s not possible to participate in this event.
There will be training sessions before the conference for all presenters, in late November, early December.
The Hypergrid International Expo has its own dedicated grid, courtesy of Phaandor Pertwee. The grid is a small one, with just five regions, a Welcome region and a large auditorium space for our HG audience. You can visit now, but please remember, it’s still under construction, so may not always be online.
There will be no local accounts for those attending the conference, so some hypergridding skills are required. To get to the grid, follow these simple steps:
- Log in to any Opensim grid that allows hypergridding… popular examples include OSGrid, Metropolis, Craft, and Kitely.
- Open the Map feature of your Viewer, and copy this address into the box on the sidebar hie.ddnss.org:8006
- Press ‘Search’ (or ‘Find’, depending on which viewer you’re using) and, when the Map locates the grid, typically less than 5 seconds, press Teleport.
The Hypergrid International Expo (HIE) is a multi language conference for OpenSim. Think of it as a ‘show and tell’ opportunity.
Presentations will be in French, German, Italian and Spanish, with English translation.
The first Expo will be held on December 16th and 17th on HIE grid during the afternoon and evening, European time. More specifics to come!
