Uhre is a private continent, owned probably by a single estate. The name comes from the fact that the majority of the sims share the Uhre name. This continent has Water, but it's anything else then a tropical beach paradise.

Geography

Altitude map

Altitude map shows that Uhre is not like any other private-owned continent. Altitude map is the prove that overall ground elevation is anything but not smooth. These are the highest valuse found for a private-owned continent, they indicate the presence of a highly fragmented terrain. Mountains, hills, depressions and sea water, everything exists here.

The highest mountain is certainly higher then 130 meters (many high peaks are over 100 meters here). They are not always real mountains, many of them are sculpted prims. In many places, flying is not allowed. If the mountain has a very high declivity, climbing is not possible and altitude could not be measured.

There are also skyboxes, sometimes as large as an entire sim, with unexpected wilderness worlds. You might find even underground places like Caves & Mines.
