Future Plans

In the coming months, we will be adding new venues for our members to experience different aspects of Irish culture, such as music venues for people to enjoy live performances, and galleries for artists to showcase their original work.

In the near future, we will be offering a number of options for renting regions on our dedicated and high-performance multi-core servers. Prices have not been finalized as of yet, but we promise to offer competitive and reasonable packages.

In time, we hope to create our own marketplace to host a wide variety of our 3D Assets. In the meantime, we plan to add content on the Kitely marketplace in the SOTA3D shop for you to browse through. Our content is of the highest quality and standards, as well as being optimized for performance on Opensim.

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.

Derek, the founder and co-owner of Greater Ireland, has over 10 years experience with virtual worlds, running a highly successful and well known previous incarnation of Greater Ireland in Second Life. Not only is he a content-creator, his roles include grid management and development, website maintenance and customer support. He is also a self-confessed "supreme tea-maker" and really, really loves home-made soup.

Paul, the other co-owner of Greater Ireland, is a content creator with additional duties in programming, grid development, customer support, website maintenance, and occasionally writing some really big words.
