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.
