The simulator, Tiamo Reef is a scenic region on the InWorldz grid, located in Tamita State in central Irukandji.

Tiamo Reef is predominantly open sea with a small islet near its northern shore with Irukandji's capital, Tamita Island.

The most noticeable differences between Tiamo Reef in InWorldz versus its predecessor in Second Life is that this version has no central island and is not connected to the national road system. There is also a distinct lack of history, monuments and so forth.

Maintaining the mythology and histories of Irukandji that I nurtured in SL, proved difficult in IW due to my focus on building content, and as such I figured that it was better to preserve the past and not taint it with a half-baked photocopy. So, to that end, I made Tiamo Reef an open sea, with largely no connection to its former self.

Regardless of all that, Tiamo Reef was a truly beautiful sim, and complimented all the other regions that lapped its shores. It was a popular bay for photo shoots and boating throughout its eighteen months in InWorldz.

Regions that adjoined Tiamo Reef, clockwise from south, where Manatu Island, Savage Bay, Pinjarra Island, Tamita Bay (later Adonis Lagoon), Tamita Island, Lagune d'Or (later Irukandji Straits), Mount Aboyo (later Aboyo Island), and South Irukandji Sea.

Below are a few photographs of Tiamo Reef that I took during my time in InWorldz.
