Reef City ~ a virtual world sim in InWorldz by Xay Tomsen

NOTE: This page is about Reef City in InWorldz. The Reef grid version is here: Reef City on The Reef.

The simulator, Reef City on the InWorldz virtual world was an experimental commercial region in northwest Irukandji.

I built Reef City as an attempt to move the commercial district from Tamita Island, so as to free up space around the Princes' Palace, and make the island more like how it used to be in Second Life.

To that end, Reef City worked, but at some point, I realised that the commercial area really belongs near the palace. The two compliment each other. So within a few months, I shut down Reef City.

All of that said, the exercise helped prepare me for two months later when I set up my own grid, The Reef Virtual World.

Wanting to move away from the Irukandji theme on the new grid, I recycled the Reef City name there which became the grid's landing sim.

Regions adjoining Reef City in InWorldz were Emperor Bay and Old Fort Island.

Few people will remember this sim, but I do, and it was definitely a worthwhile journey despite its brief existence.
