Open URL Action

Definition: The Open URL action opens the URL. The URL is specified in the text field and can identify a web address, a file address, an FTP address or an e-mail address. If a web, file, or FTP address is specified, it will be opened in a browser. If an e-mail address is specified, it will be opened in your default mail program.

If no browser is running, the system will prompt you to run one. A list of browsers currently installed on your machine will be displayed.

Parameters: URL
Example: In the Grotesque City, the character opens the appropriate web pages when he encounters buildings that have stories associated with them (the space bar needs to be pressed).

See the Grotesque City simulation.
