Horn of Weta map

The simulator, Horn of Weta was a promontory in the far northeast of Irukandji, and part of Weta State.

Horn of Weta, or 'The Horn' as it became known, spent most of its life as a forested mountain with a few rental bungalows on its point for reclusive types.

The southern end of the peninsula sloped down into Weta Island, where a stretch of the Trans Irukandji Causeway fed upwards into the hills.

Surrounding the peninsula was a deepwater sea for sailing.

Three other sims adjoined Horn of Weta. From southwest to southeast, they were Tongabuti Bay, Weta Island, and Weta Rim.

Horn of Weta

The name, Horn of Weta was a play on words, irreverently testing how far I could push the naming censorship policies of SL, especially given the island's obvious phallic shape.

Linden Labs never picked up on what became a long running local joke, nor any of the other facetitious names like the nearby sims, Upper Aboyo Passage and Tongabuti Bay.

This gave everyone a giggle over the years.
