    You can access the Halloween Party Island via the teleport menu, on a new world called "Events".


    Please note: if you visited the island last week when there was a bug resulting in no terrain, you should delete your Landmark cache folder before visiting if you wish to avoid odd terrain loading issues.

    To delete your Landmark cache, right-click the Landmark icon on your desktop and choose "open file location"


    Then delete the folder called "cache", then restart Landmark.

    ...I may have spoken too soon. The island IS up, but not visible for some reason -- investigating!

    Now confirmed open!

    Just experienced that if you log out while on this island - you can't log back in directly onto it - must select one of the regular "worlds" (servers). No visble indication - at first i thought the game froze. Tried relogging 2-3 times until i thought to look at the server selections available.

    Speaking of Halloween....where is our Halloween Moon? The lovely golden skull faced, full Halloween Moon you gave to us that added such a creepy Halloweeny feel to our Landmark nights :)

    Is that a picture from this year or from beta? Would not have thought to look closely at the moon without both your posts. Might have to rethink the time setting for the build started yesterday. Maybe a bit more moon visible will really bring out the therianthropes and azagoths.

    That was from last year (2015). When they changed it you couldn't help but notice - it's scary! :eek:

    Maybe (hopefully) they're saving it til closer to the night :)

    I may have missed it posted elsewhere, so apologies in advance ...

    How long will the island be available?

    Wasn't available Friday during the live stream, so couldn't post this in chat. Domino mentioned the possibility of doing a more leisurely tour when she has more time. We build experiences, not just architecture. While skipping from site to site using porting & some developer-only methods of travel made sense for the sake of time during the stream, a lot of people put instructions for how to best enjoy their builds in the gallery and drop down descriptions - and as much work into the arrival point areas as well. This post is definitely not a criticism, just a suggestion for genuinely appreciating the effort so many Luminaries put into crafting player experience. It's worth pointing out that the complexity and creativity exhibited were de facto speed builds - roughly 3 weeks from the island being accessible to the many sites visited during the stream.

    Missed the edit time limit - logged into game to double-check names.

    Kylen's build next to the spire is a very detailed reproduction of the house from a series of films about dead who are evil. "Boomstick" is part of the site's long title. Definitely worth spending some time in by anyone who is a fan of 1980s horror films.

    Bah. you know: some claims was not touring but......... it's like that, you spend time to do something and you are so far from the spires nobody visit except your friends ;) and thx Geo to have been in my halloween claim :)
    was just disappointed because last year Domino took care to visit all the halloween's claims but port here and here is not (as you said) a good thing just because some of us set the story from the port point ;) but anyway, congrats to all the Halloween island builders
