Quite a lot of There's functionality is implemented through HTTP accesses to the server
, in other words using URLs of the following form:
The services provided through this kind of URL are referred to as WebApp services, or collectively the WebApps. For its operation, the ThereClient also relies on IhostServices.
prod in these URLs implies "production cluster" and therefore these won't work if you are using the beta client and beta cluster.
If you are looking at a browser page generated by the There WebApps, you can usually use Ctrl+N to bring up the same page in the external browser. This gives you access to the address bar from which you can extract details of the service URL. If the Ctrl+N trick doesn't appear to be working, it sometimes helps to click in the browser window and try it again.
Most of the WebApps that present a browser page as their result are generating XML rather than HTML. This XML is transformed into HTML by your browser under the control of an XSL "stylesheet" file that is specified by the XML data. If you add "
&omitXsl=1" to the end of a WebApp URL, you can tell the web service to omit the XSL stylesheet specification so that you can view the XML directly in the browser.

(Stevenray comments: That works for pretty much any place that is named on the There maps.
If you know the places in Motu, it should work with those. haven't tested yet.
I'm guessing heading changes the direction that you are facing when you teleport in. Not sure what radius does though.)

Also, I found this, it says it's for "story kit", is that quests?
Plus one more, I don't think this will work unless you are a mentor, but it's for transporting directly to a person.
