How to send norns to yourself in Docking Station
Description: I recently had the happy accident of discovering how to send norns to myself via the warp. I can say now that I send norns to myself on a regular basis with no hassles, and I don't run two instances of DS on my computer, nor do I bother to boot the kids' machines to run an instance of DS on theirs, and send back and forth. Would you like to know how? Well then read on!
1.) Get two usernames.
2.) Make sure you have created a world for both usernames.
3.) Add yourself to the contact list for each world. For example: Assume your usernames were TreeSprite, and TreeFaerie. If you are using (logged in to) the TreeSprite account, you would add TreeFaerie to your contact list.
4.) Mark yourself as a friend in both worlds.
5.) Export your contact list from each world, and then import the contact list from each into it's opposite. Now, in TreeSprite's world, TreeSprite is a contact marked as friend and vice-versa. You can't see yourself in your own contact list, but trust me you are still there!
6.) If this is an old world, reset all the people marked as friend in your contact list to the regular setting.
7.) Set your warp chamber in the warp room to send creatures out to any friend.
8.) Set your warp chamber in the warp room to receive from any online user.
You must set this to any online user, or you won't get your norns!
9.) Now you can send and receive norns to and from yourself in the same world.
*NOTE: Do not send out too many norns at once. If you send more than five (I think the limit is five.) then the DS servers will automatically mark them as missing in action, and will *cough*lose them*cough*. I send my norns out one at a time. It doesn't take too long to get them back, and after they've warped out it's much easier to track their history.
