The guide starts on our website pointing to the links required to create an account and set up the viewer. These items are covered in more detail on other videos so are covered quickly.

Following this, it moves onto what happens as you load your avatar in the 3D world for the first time. Explaining how to accept the group invite, and get another if you miss the original After accepting the group invite you will be shown how to set your home position.

The basic movement controls come next. Describing and demonstrating the process of turning and walking around. From that point, we guide you towards our help regions and full versions of the default avatars provided.

You will see a demonstration of how to access the help region. Once there we show you the camera controls help board. This is one of the most useful yet underused skills in OpenSim worlds.

The final board to be demonstrated in the video is changing the viewer’s skin. Viewer skins are largely a personal choice, things like colour and layout change. For our customers who are unfamiliar with OpenSim or Firestorm, we suggest using Firestorm with the Vintage skin. The only reason for this recommendation is that most of the Fire And Ice Grids demonstration videos will use the same setup. Following the videos when your own screen matches the video will make life simpler.

After restarting the viewer in the new skin, teleporting to the previously set home position is demonstrated.
