Islandz is the new official name for the new grid opening soon after the closure of InWorldz recently.
Islandz will be a closed grid and will not be hypergrid enabled.
On Sunday 19th August Beth Reischl started the setup for the database recovery apparently and once that has been completed then work can start on the OARS.
So far no date has been set for the opening of Islandz. Stay tuned for further updates very soon.
New Regions Alert
Second Life Map – 20th August 2018
According to the latest sims report on the SLUniverse Forums it looks like Second Life has a brand new continent north east on the map. There are 80 SSP brand new regions at the moment which are closed to the public. It appears these regions (SSP1 – SSP80) are marked as Linden owned at this time.
It will be interesting to see what these regions will be used for and whether it will be open to the public in the near future.
New SSP continent
Tyche Shepherd mentioned this information on the new continent – see below
A brand new 80 region terraformed continent appeared on the grid last week . Currently closed to the public it’s composed of 80 moderate rated contiguous regions names SSP1 to SSP80 ,I’m assuming these are Lab owned (though it’s nearest neighbours are Private Estates) and have marked them as Linden Lab owned.
Hopefully the lab will let us know soon about these new regions.
