How not to get around in Rubi-Ka: A crashed transport

Rubi Ka Travel[edit]

Whompah[edit]

Main article: Whompah

Whompahs are a counterpart to the grid system, and the most efficient travelling will use both. Whompahs are easily spotted at a distance by parts of the structure that reach high into the air above them; Clan whompahs feature tall thin spikes and Omni, thicker poles topped with a blue light. The whompa transportation system was designed by Omni-Com and is maintained by Omni-Trans. The whom-pah system breaks an individual down at the cellular level, then rebuilds their body at another location. The name is derived from the sound the whom-pa makes. The whole of the Rubi-Ka whompah system can be accessed by any character, but faction guards are often posted near the whompahs, and will attack players of another faction, sometimes even neutrals.

The Grid[edit]

Main article: Grid

A counterpart to the Whompah system; use both for ultimate efficiency of travel. Entering the grid requires skill in computer literacy; if for some reason a player gets stuck in the grid, e.g. a computer literacy buff wears off while in the grid, there is an emergency exit on the ground floor. The grid is a separate space. When you enter the Grid, you are no longer in Rubi-Ka, and cannot utilize nanos, or ride in vehicles.

The Grid also contains an exit to the Organisation-owned Cities and tower fields on Land Control Areas added by the now free Notum Wars expansion.

Ferries[edit]

Ferries are found near the giant hovercraft water vehicles of Rubi-Ka. They transport the character instantly to the other side of the water. Stret East Bank, Stret West Bank, 4 Holes, Pleasant Meadows and Omni-1 all have ferries; Pleasant Meadows has two, and Lush Fields has three.

Boxing the Compass[edit]

See the 'compass' command in the Helpbot article

Most familiar are the cardinal directions: North, East, South, and West.

Between those, as you may know, are the ordinal directions, named after a combination of the cardinal directions they are between: Northeast, Southeast, Southwest, and Northwest.

Between the cardinal and ordinal directions are points named after the cardinal directions, hyphenated with the ordinal directions: North-northeast, East-northeast, East-southeast, South-southeast, and so on.

The final distinction of heading is between these others. They begin with the cardinal or ordinal direction closest to the heading, the word 'by', and then the next closest cardinal point.
