Welcome to the Astria Porta Network homepage!
We are the premium hypergrid teleport network in Open Simulator!
We themed our hypergrid portals using the Stargate design and experience.
Throughout this site is all the information you need to get started and use these stargates. If you have any questions or thoughts that are not answered here you can find us on OS Grid or Second Life.
To start, you can get the stargate package on OSGrid at Astria Porta, and in Second Life at Nevermore.
There are notecards inside that have more information to help you get set up as well.
For More Information
For more information or to contact us you can reach out through social media listed at the botton
of this page or in-world, search for the following avatars:
Technical Support - Spectre Draconia (OS Grid & Second Life)
Build Issues - Nick Balers, or Njord Asgard (OS Grid)
Please read the manual regarding hypergrid travel between Second Life and any other grids listed in the network.
Important - OpenSim Instructions
Sim requirements: osTeleportAgent, osGetGridNick, and osGetGridGatekeeperURI need to be enabled for this to work correctly.
osGetGridNick and osGetGridGatekeeperURI are REQUIRED in order to allow for hypergrid travel.
The defaults should be suffecient now, but if you are having trouble here are the recommended settings in enableOSSL.ini:
Allow_osTeleportAgent = PARCEL_OWNER, PARCEL_GROUP_MEMBER
Allow_osGetGridNick = PARCEL_OWNER, PARCEL_GROUP_MEMBER
Allow_osGetGridGatekeeperURI = PARCEL_OWNER, PARCEL_GROUP_MEMBER
Also in order for these gates to work properly you will need to modify a setting in your OpenSim.ini
ExternalHostNameForLSL = "your.FQDN.com"
or you can use your static IP address:
ExternalHostNameForLSL = "18.104.22.168"
A "fully qualified domain name" (FQDN) can be obtained from a free dynamic DNS provider such as DynDNS.org, no-ip.com, or Afraid.org.
If your sim is hosted, your provider can make the changes needed or give you the information required to update your OpenSim.ini file.
If you are unable to make these changes the gate will not work properly.
How to use the Gates
Currently these are the commands working on channel 46. This means prefix the commands below with
Owner Only Commands (commands only the gate owner can use to adjust the settings):
/name <name you want your gate to be named> - renames your gate
/alias <a short alias for your gate> - changes your gate's alias
/random <1/0> - toggle random 1 = on, 0 = off
/sdial <1/0> - toggle the slow "SGC" style dialing on and off
/shield_type <0/1/2/3> - iris type - 0 is no iris, 1 is SGC style iris, 2 is Atlatis style, 3 is for a custom iris (one you make)
/shield <1/0> - toggles your iris closed/open
/ch0 <1/0> - toggles "public" chat commands allowing you to dial by just typing in 'local' chat
/imgurl <url> - links a image to your gate on the gate list page (soon to be depreciated)
/d or /dial <name/alias/random> - dial a gate (random will dial a random gate)
/shutdown - shutdown outgoing wormholes
/probe - will return data about the dialed into location (data sent back via API commands)
/46 /dial Astria Porta
This command will dial the gate for Astria Porta
Prior to being able to Hypergrid you will need to rez the "Grid Registration" device.
This will register your unique grid with the database and allow for seamless hypergrid travel.
Due to the massive amount of power required to connect two gates across the metaverse the ZPM is REQUIRED in order to make a connection.
The command to dial a hypergrid gate is as follows:
/d or /dial <name/alias>:<grid>
/46 /d Astria Porta:OSGrid
While hypergrid travel is unavailable on Second Life you can still communicate with people via radio communications while the wormhole is active.
Grid Registration (Opensim Grids)
Registering your grid is required prior to being able to use the hypergrid feature in the APN gates.
To register simply rez the "Grid Registration" box on your sim and click it. If you have your OpenSim.ini configured as previously shown your grid will register with the APN Network.
APN Milkyway Network Stargates
A list of features will be available soon!
APN Pegasus Network Stargates
A list of features will be available soon!
APN Universe Network Stargates
This item is not yet available.
APN Power Sources
The Stargates require a power source outside the Stargate. Currently the DHD has a power source, and we have developed the ZPM to dial between Stargate networks.
In a future version of the Stargates we will be adding the 'destroyable' features that will disable the DHD. This will require the Naquadah Reactor and manual dial unless somebody has a 'DHD Repair Tool' which will be released at that time too.
The development of other power sources is also being conducted and eventually released, this includes the Black Hole Device, and Icarus Planet Device. (expected in a later release).
How to use the API Command information
Each Stargate type will have its own communications channel that is not useable by avatars and requires the use of scripting. The following information will tell you what channels work for which gate types.
Also, note, incoming commands are communications from an avatar or object to control the Stargate, change Stargate Settings, etc.
The outgoing commands are responses from the Stargate to the commands sent to them.
Milkyway/Tollan Incoming Channel:
Milkyway/Tollan Outgoing Channel:
Pegasus Incoming Channel: -undetermined-
Pegasus Outgoing Channel: -undetermined-
Universe Incoming Channel: -undetermined-
Universe Outgoing Channel: -undetermined-
