London Zoo in Mainland London



London Zoo to be included in Regent's Park

We are creating an exhibit of the real life London Zoo here in Mainland London's Regent's Park. This exhibit is a representation of the fun and excitement found in the world's oldest zoo.

Although not completed yet, this picture will give you an idea of what is in store.




London Zoo is the world's oldest scientific zoo founded over 180 years ago and can be found in the heart of London, in Regent's Park.

Although this zoo is located in the middle of the city it still has plenty of animals to see including lions, camels, giraffes, penguins, tigers, monkeys and meerkats. In fact there are 750 different species of animals making it  the largest collection of animals in the UK.

The zoo is divided up into many different areas which are great fun to explore and help make it one of London's most popular tourist attractions.

Other attractions such as the Amphitheatre and Regent's Park canal will also be included in this new area of Regent's Park.

My Rentals - Gridwide information system



Many of us rent multiple spaces all over the grid and knowing when payments are due can be a nightmare.

Here in Mainland London, we have a  free to use service, "My Rentals Finder" to make life just a little easier.

Simply click the board and you will receive a private IM that lists all your rentals, everywhere on the grid, informing you of the time remaining, the landlords name and a Slurl so you can TP directly to the rent box.

This system is located by the entrance to the tube station in Soho.   Click here to visit and try it for yourself.

Thank you to everyone who came to see Dolly Parton, Neil Diamond and Barry Manilow in three unique concerts in Mainland London over the weekend. 

A special hello to Boston Linden who came to see Neil Diamond on Saturday and Barry Manilow on Sunday.  Next time, Boston, bring your friends!

Don't forget we are holding a concert every Friday, Saturday and Sunday throughout all of April!

To other things now.  Last week we told you about expansion plans for Regent's Park.

We're pleased to let you know that everything is going according to plan and that the park area is set to triple in size with masses of new features for everyone to enjoy.




Expansion of Regent's Park area.
Whilst much of the area is still undeveloped, the basic concept of the new design is ahead of schedule and we welcome everyone to come and take a look at our progress so far.

Rez a horse and explore Regent's Park
Why not Rez a horse from the free Horse Ride stand and have a gallop around the new park and check things out.

Tina Turner, Saturday 16th April

Wouldn't it be wonderful to hold Saturday's Tina Turner Concert from the new amphitheatre in the park?   No promises! :)

A special and sincere thanks to every one of the ten thousand members of the Mainland London Community.
This community has grown from nothing in September to 10,500 people in April. You have all made this venture hugely successful and immense fun to be involved with. 
We are always looking for people to help us as Mainland London continues to grow and expand.  If you would like to get involved some more, please drop a note in-world.

London Gets Bigger





The Soho region of Mainland London has just doubled in size!

Although we have added land to the West End district on a regular basis, Soho was starting to feel really cramped.

Whilst having all shops in both regions rented is great, it also meant that clients who wanted store space were unable to open their brand here as we had nothing available for them to rent.


Here in Mainland London, we were always keen to avoid the mistakes of others; ghost towns with whole sims of land, empty shops, no footfall and little to no following.   We started off small and have added land as it has been required.   However we didn't add it quick enough for Soho and we just plain ran out of room!

Today we have remedied that, by adding another half sim to the Soho district of Mainland London.

This will enable us to expand Regent's Park, add more stores, an amphitheatre, housing and better facilities for those who visit us on a regular basis.

Building work has already begun and we hope to have this additional land up and running by the month end.

Thank you for making Mainland London such a tremendous success.
