IrishGent's relentless negotiations with Linden Labs has paid off in the form of an additional 13 sims of open water.
The sims will start going live during the course of next week.
The proposed use for these sims is sailing, aviation, and battle roleplay. All things being equal it is possible that additional sims will be added to the initial 13 towards the end of the year, bringing the total to 30 additional open water sims.
More info with regard to administering the use of the water will be available in due course.
In the meantime come on over and see what the Seychelles Isles can offer you.
