The Lindens announced that there would be good arrangement to be had for purchasing open space sims (i.e.. low prim spaces to encourage open waters or more park like areas). These were available to people who already owned Sims. Our friendly landlord, Otenth Paderborn offered to pass on this facility to people through our island of Wyre. Two such islands have been established!
And both adjacent to my side of the island. Isle of Aud is no longer so remote.
