Papeete Island .:. an Irukandji simulator by Xay Tomsen

Papeete Island ~ a virtual world sim in SpotOn3D by Xay Tomsen

I spent a lot of time working on Papeete Island. It was arguably the one sim that I built in SpotOn3D that was new in concept, i.e. it wasn't based on islands that I'd built previously in 'old Irukandji'.

Papeete Island was located directly northwest of Tamita Island, in the space traditionally occupied by Nouvelle Kiribas in all other versions of Irukandji. Also different was that instead of an island with a dominating central peak, Papeete was flat with canals between each parcel.

Six parcels of varying sizes made up the island, and three were occupied during the island's life.

My brief time on the long-ago-deceased SpotOn 3D grid was unremarkable. Of Papeete Island, the only other noteworthy point is that the adjacent photograph of Papeete would later be used in the sign for Xay Tomsen Estates in InWorldz.

This is the only photo that survives of Papeete Island.
