Welcome to the Jokaydia Grid Intro Lesson.
You will be working in a virtual world during the next series of lessons. This virtual world is called Jokaydia Grid. We have two regions which have been built up by students and teachers: ABC El Savador and ABC El Salvador 2.

Your teacher will have given you your login information for the grid, but before you can log in you must take a few moments to set things up.

Step 1: Setting Things Up

Open up Imprudence on your Mac. If you don't see it in the Spotlight, you can search for it in the Screen Shot 2013-05-31 at 8.31.22 AM.png.

You should now be able to log in with your user and password.

Step 2: Setting Home


Click on the Map button and type in ABC in the search box. Search and select ABC El Salvador 2. Teleport to ABC El Salvador 2.
Click the World button on the top menu and select Set Home to Here.

Step 3: Avatar Customisation
You might want to switch the gender of your avatar and customise some of its features and clothing.
Do so by right clicking on your avatar and selecting Appearance from the wheel menu.
Try to modify your Avatar. Be CAREFUL NOT to remove all the clothing.

You can go to the mall on the Pixel Sim to purchase items for your avatar. Just search out Pixel on the map.

Step 4: Getting Around and Exploring


Getting around is easy. You can use the Function and up arrow keys on a Mac laptop and the Page Up and Page Down keys on the Windows keyboard. You can also use the Fly and Stop flying button at the bottom of your screen. Use your arrow keys to move around.

You can also take Snapshots of what you see.

Step 5: Building/Rezzing Prims

Basic Building


If you find you can still not build, let your teacher know as there may be an error.

The land on ABC El Salvador and ABC El Salvador 2 has been locked. Only your teacher can edit it. If you really need to change the land form then you will need to consult with your teacher on it.

In Jokaydia Grid, you can build on land, in the water and move your constructions up into the sky as well. Our region is quite small so we will need to think carefully about where we are building.

Next choose a location to build that is not to busy already. Right click and choose the edit option, or use the build button from the lower toolbar.

Next you will want to position your object. You can move it in different directions along a straight line by utilising the blue, green and red arrows. You can also move it along a plane using the blue and green corner arrows.
