Open Sim"Creation Of Your Own Grid" Let's Keep It Simple" "Part 1"

By Avatar JayR Cela

    Ok, bear with me please, I am learning as I go along here. First thing is first, we want to keep this as simple as possible. So a localhost grid, in my mind seems as the best way to get out feet wet.

    This series of post's will all be based on a Window's XP platform installation.

    Things You Will Need :

                #1 is the Open Sim Server, which is used to create your new grid
                #2 is the Hippo Open Sim Viewer, developed specifically for use in grids created by OpenSim       server.

    Ok once you have these, we will be ready to start.

    Create a suitable directory on you hard drive, preferably it should be a dedicated HD partition, or an auxiliary 2nd hard disk, internal or external, does not matter.

    In my case I have a separate partion G:\
    You will unzip this file
     To your chosen location.

    Open the opensim- folder

     Find this file OpenSim, and RUN it, at this point you will be asked a series of questions, the only thing you need to do is follow the prompt's, make a region name, leave everything else set to their default's.
 Region Location [1000,1000] :
 Internal IP address [0,0,0,0]
 Internal port [9000]
 Allow alternate ports [False]
 External host name [SYSTEMIP]


  Next UnBlock the Window's FireWall


  Then just continue to follow the prompt's

   You will need to create a new Estate Name
     Then an Estate Owner first name
     Then a Last Name
     Then a password
     Then enter your E-Mail Address


   When it has finished installing, you will be greeted with a prompt with your new local regions name. This means that you have successfuly created a localhost grid on your computer.



      So lets get the Hippo Viewer up and running.

      On the Grid Selection Manager, you will need to choose Local.


     And Wha-Laaa ! You will hopefully have arrived at your newly created private destination.

P.S. Some of these picture's above may not be in the correct order ( I blame that on Google Picasa ) and the fact I am extremely tired right now and need some sleep, but I believe with a little common sense, you should be able to figure it out
