My island in the "P." I'm the yellow dot - shows direction of my gaze.
Testing area - each box contains a test that requires one or more testers. I did one, but it took me forever as I had to re-install the program every time I (when told to by the test) logged out. I had to re-install because the updater thought it had to run but was stymied - most likely fixed by now. Not a big deal.
Cubey's shop was gone from the main grid but is preserved in amber on the preview grid (for the moment).
LL updated the preview so I downloaded the installer and went in to see what was what. Of course, everything built in the last preview grid was deleted (well, they did a sim state save for one sim so you could stow your gear there if it was necessary - my stuff was all just junk) so I went looking for land to buy. I wanted an island, so first I headed to the middle of the "R" but it was occupado, so I bought the middle of the "P" instead, and named it Peapatch Island after that island in the Delaware that (reportedly) had started when a barge of peas ran aground. I liked Peapatch Island a lot - it wound up fairly big and in the American Civil War had a Confederate fort on it last lasted about 5 minutes before being turned into a prison camp for Confederate soldiers. I remember goats, too. One had to go there by boat - well it was early in its tourist life when I used to go there a million years ago. The boat went from... hmmm... Delaware City maybe?
