List Of Microcontinents And Sim Clusters

From Second Life Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of all groups of sims that are too small or are not linked together to form a continent. The lists and maps were last updated with data from March, 2014.

Grid Sectors

Definitions

A Continent is a group of more then 30 sims, linked together in such a way that an avatar can travel from one sim to another. The sims must have Geographic features that continue from a sim to the nearby sims, common types of textures and common transportation systems (roads, raiways, waterways). The grid contains 28 continents.

A Microcontinent is a group of less then 30 sims, linked together in such a way that an avatar can travel from one sim to another. The sims must have Geographic features that continue from a sim to the nearby sims, common types of textures and common transportation systems (roads, raiways, waterways). The list contains 81 microcontinents, 7 listed strucutres are both a continent and a sim cluster, while 3 structures contain more then one microcontinent. The total is 102.

A Sim Cluster is a group with more then 10 sims that are not compleatly connected (usually only on diagonal) and can belong to various estates. If they belong to the same estate, the distance between the sims could be larger. The list above contains 80 structures that are sim clusters, one structure contains 2 sim cluster, while 7 listed structures contain both a microcontinent and a sim cluster. Also, Estate Continent has its own sim cluster. The total is 91.

A Sim Group is a structure that cannot be considered a microcontinent or a sim cluster. Ususally, they have between 2 and 9 sims and are very isolated. This list contains 16 sim groups.

Unassociated Sims are those sims with no Geometric distribution and with an average density. They cannot be grouped into any structures. Usually, they can be found in the space between sim clustern or microcontinents.

An Isolated Sim is a remote sim that cannot be linked to anything else.

A Grid Sector is a part of the map. This list contains 80 sim groups.

Also, the map contains some remote sims

Reason

These small structures concentrate more then 70% of the sims that form our world. For unknown reasons, not many people worked on to make a map or a list of the small dots and spots on the world map. Since our world is more then 10 years old and its expansion state ended (came to maturity), such lists are required by more and more residents. If any resident is against something in this article, please improve. Also, if you are one of the Linden officials and you are against this article, please delete it.

Position

These small structures are with hundreds on the map. They are created and deleted often, they change their shapes by adding or deleting sims. To find their position, the best way is to use Coordinates.For the winter census of microcontinents and sim clusters, the grid was divided into sectors, each Grid Sector counting 100 sims length and 100 sims wide.

In the list, the coordinates are given in the following form: longitude (min - max) / latitude (min - max).

Names

Since there is no list of references and nobody tried to create this list, we had to give names to the small structures that exist on our map. If anybody knows the names of any microcontinent, sim cluster or group of sims, please help improve the list. Help is needed.

We usually give a name when many sims share a common name or when the sims share a common theme. In rare situations, names can be from nearby Geographic strucutres or from coordinates.

Most usually, the names here are actually numbers, like in Astronomy. They are temporary names, until someone will find a better name.

How to read the list

The format is the following one: Name - Type - Coordinates - Other notes

The type is:

  1. M - microcontinent
  2. S - sim cluster
  3. I - sim groups or remote islands

Other notes - might refer to relative position (see Oceans) or additional info.

They were found at the spring survey (March 20th 2014). Not all of them are recent, many structures were just omitted at previous surveys.

Further Reading

Still there are many Unassociated Sims that cannot be grouped into specific structures. For them, additional data can be obtained from Gridsurvey. From there, you can see pictuers token on almost every sim on Snapzilla. Another useful link is SLuniverse.

Maps for each sector are available at Grid Sector page or can be downloaded from here (information is stored on Mega, successor of Megaupload). You will need Google Chrome for this. Please note that these images are owned by Ana Imfinity. You can also see them inworld at Second Life Geography InstituteD.
