Future Plans

Greater Ireland is in the early stages of development and will constantly be adding new and diverse locations over time. Because we are building the content ourselves, it will take a lot of work and planning on our part, but as like all good things, it will be worth the wait.

In the coming months, we'll be offering a number of different options for renting regions on our dedicated and high performance mulit-core servers. Prices have not been finalized as of yet, but we promise to offer competitive and reasonable pricing packages.

We are also planning to create our own marketplace to host a wide variety of 3D Assets. We create all our own content, and all of our models and textures are of high quality and standards, as well as being optimized for performance and low lag on Opensim.

Our Thanks

A project such as ours is no easy undertaking, and a lot of people have helped us to reach this stage of our development. We are deeply thankful to everyone for all the support, and we would like to acknowledge the following in particular...

The Opensim Community, both developers and community.

James Stallings/SimHost for all his help and continuous support in so many areas. Top Man.

BOG, for giving us his valuable time to help out with the website.

Ann Marie Gleason, for helping out with advice on getting up and running.

Enterprise Ireland's New Frontiers programme, for giving us a glimpse of what is required to run a business.

About Us

We are 3D Artists and Game Designers based in Limerick, Ireland. Our focus is on developing a virtual environment with a thriving and vibrant community of users, as well as creating top-quality assets for Opensim.
