I was present when the switched from the old Beginner Zone to the new one (now called Starting Island), and I must say that Cloud Party has really, REALLY outdone themselves this time. Roman architecture and Danish furniture. Windmills and waterfalls. A medieval orrery hanging over a central meeting dome. Swinging bridges and red park benches. Rows of stately trees. Sculptures and an artistic fountain.
Words cannot do this new Beginner Zone justice, so photos will have to suffice. Lucky for you, I've taken lots of them! Remember to click on any photo to enlarge it for better viewing.
Better yet, check it out youself! The URL is https://a.cloudparty.com/loc/2000/-41.9,-37,-24.8,0.6
