    Title: Using a POT teleporter does not put you at the POT default entrance chosen by the POT owner
    Reproduction Rate: 100%
    Blocker? No
    Details:
    - Tazar has placed a POT teleporter which goes from Flowing Waters Forest to Duanor and also from Falling Waters Fortress to Duanor.

    - Whichever one I take puts me at Entrance #1 to Duanor, despite the fact that from the first day I had the POT I chose the Central location as the "default entrance" to the town. But it puts me at Entrance #1.
    (This concerned me enough that during the recent fishing contest which took place in Duanor, I placed a bulletin board at Entrance #1 to make certain fisher-people would see my posts welcoming them to the town and advertising that I also had a quest in the town.)

    - If I teleport to the POT using a teleport scroll, it actually pops up with the menu which shows all of the entrances-locations I have "discovered." So that part of it works! But I wish the wagons would at least put players at the default entrance I have chosen.

    Steps to Reproduce:
    - Go to Falling Waters Fortress or Flowing Waters Forest (close to the docks for both POTs) and look for a blue wagon teleporter which will take you to Duanor.
    - Use the teleporter.

    And apologies, if this is a known bug. I had not reported it earlier because I thought it was a known bug, but I didn't see it when I scanned through the forums.

    @Raven Swiftbow, i do not think this is a bug. when someone places a pot teleporter, they get to choose not just the scene, but the entrance. ask tazar to change where that teleporter points.

    Um, @Alley Oop - I just looked at the teleporters that *I* have in Duanor that go to Falling Waters And Flowing Waters - it doesn't give me any option as to "where" I would land in those towns. So @Tazar - you're off the hook, I suppose! But when you use one of these teleporters, it should put you at whatever location the POT owner set as the default, shouldn't it? (Still new at all this POT stuff....)

    @Raven Swiftbow that is odd. perhaps you haven't discovered those entrances? i think there may have been a recent reset on them when they added the teleporters.

    I have discovered all of those places. You have been all over Duanor - take the wagon from there to Duano and see where it puts you - and there are no options that I have seen. Perhaps I'm bugged!

    @Raven Swiftbow oh no, it's not picked by the person using the teleporter. it's picked when the owner right clicks the teleporter to set the destination. if i use the wagon from fwf to duanor, i won't get a choice, i'll go where tazar set it. perhaps HE didn't have the points discovered when he set it.

    When I right click on a teleporter that I have in Duanor - which goes to Falling Waters - it only gives me the option to change what town it points to. It doesn't give me *any* option to set the location it points to in Falling Waters. So I'm sure it must be the same for Tazar - it does not give you the option to choose where you 'land' in the destination. Which, if it isn't going to give you the option of where you are going to land, I would think that at the very least, it would land you at the default entrance which the POT owner has chosen. But it doesn't do that.

    my screenshot was of me chossing which location in fwf to set my boat teleporter to. perhaps this is a problem with a specific teleporter, or perhaps you have not re-learned those points since the known entrances reset i mentioned above. have you been there, to various entrances there, this release?

    Aye, perhaps it's just a 'wagon' problem.

    Alrighty! Apparently there *is* a way to set the "landing location" of the town you choose - but to do it you have to (1) choose the town and then (2) click on "teleport" - and it was that "teleport" part of it which was tripping me up.

    To test this out, I set a wagon I have in Duanor to go to Falling Waters Fortress - but I didn't click "teleport" because I didn't want to "teleport to Falling Waters just that moment." It would probably help clear up the confusion if it said something other than "teleport" - perhaps "choose destination" - since that's what the menu says when you click "teleport"?
