Iruka .:. an Irukandji simulator by Xay Tomsen

Iruka ~ a virtual world sim on The Reef virtual world by Xay Tomsen

  • Size: 104.8576 hectares
  • Grid: The Reef
  • Online: 2015
  • Use: Mixed
  • Terrain: hand terraformed 1024 x 1024 square metre varregion

Iruka was a one-million square metre varregion on The Reef virtual world.

While technically, not part of the Irukandji Continent, it was in essence.

The Iruka story takes over where Kiwi Islands left off, as Leah Hammerer, the previous owner passed away in RL, and I took over the sim so as not to inconvenience landowners.

It was however a very emotional time for me as Leah was a close friend.

I was able to keep the region going for a few months but finally had to let it go, along with the grid itself.

You will find a lot of photographs of Iruka below, but I will let the Kiwi Islands page tell the rest of the story to save replicating it here.

If you would like to explore more of the Irukandji continent, check out the main Islands of Irukandji page.
