A start point, or entry point, is a saved coordinate set in your property. Each property has a default start point, which is where everyone lands when they enter the property. You can set new start points in your owned properties.
Default start point is where everyone lands by default when they enter the property. Each property has a preset default, but you can set your own default if you'd like people to land in a different spot.
Landmark start point is where someone will land if they've saved your property as a landmark. Each property has a preset landmark start point which is the same as the preset default. You can set your own. Your default and landmark entry points do not have to be the same.
Setting Start Points
- Go to the location in your property that you'd like to save as a start point
- Select Startpoint Manager from the drop-down menu in the upper-right (looks like a down-arrow on the button menu)
- Enter a name for your start point in the Name field and click Set
- Your new start point will appear in the list
- Right-click a start point in the list to
- Go There: transports you to the start point location
- Set to current location: updates the startpoint coordinates to where you're currently standing
- Remove: permanently delete the start point. If this was a landmark or default start point, it will not break any saved links to your property, but they will be directed to whatever the new default/landmark start point is
- Set as default entry point: Sets this as the default start point for anyone entering the property
- Set as landmark entry point: Sets this as the default start point for anyone who saves the property as a landmark
Start Points in Transferred Layouts
When you transfer a layout to someone, the start points do not get transferred with it. The best way to overcome this is to use a prop with the Move To Location script.
- Stand in the location you want people to start (where you want the new startpoint to be)
- Press the F2 button to open the information panel
- Write down the XYZ coordinates
- Write down the second rotation number (so if it says "Rotation 271, 4.74" you should write down 4.74)
- Go back to the default start point for the property
- Create a prop people can click to get to the correct area
- It's a good idea to use a sign prop, so you can add an image with instructions to click the object then set their start point at the new location
- Add the Move To Location script to the prop
- Enter the X, Y, and Z coordinates you wrote down
- Enter the Rotation number you wrote down in the Yaw field
- Save your prop and test it to make sure it transports you to the right spot
