Teleports bot to specific location.


The following table shows input values (you send them with the API call) and returned output values.

Variable Required Description
Input basic parameters:
action yes = teleport
apikey yes Your personal developer's API key.
botname yes Your bot's SL login.
secret yes Bot access code of your bot.
dataType optional Set to "json" to get JSON reply instead of URL-encoded string
custom optional The custom data (string) to be passed back to caller script. This value will be returned back to the caller in HTTP response.
location yes address of the new location

Format: Region name/X/Y/Z

Use HOME instead of location to send the bot home (see examples below).

skip_saving_location optional Set to 1 or true to AVOID saving location as permanent. See comments below.
(to be received in http_response LSL event, see docs for details)
result OK - command completed successfully
FAIL - command failed
resulttext Detailed reason for the failure.
custom The value from input "custom" parameter. See above.



By default bot saves the "location" you specify as base location (same as "Bot base location" in Bot Control Panel). This is a historical behavior, and it makes your bot stay in this location (on sim restart, for example).

You may not want bot to stick to the specified location. Set skip_saving_location to 1 or true and bot won't set the destination as permanent. It will stay there until teleported furter, or sim restarted.
