Clyde was part of the original Outlands along with the sims Federal, Hawthorne, Shipley, and Stanford. Clyde served as the "bridge" sim between the Outlands and the rest of the world. Clyde was home to the "Outlands Wall" which acted as a warning.
On April 18th, 2003, during a Town Hall meeting), it was announced that the former Outland sims were now mature, non-combat, and Jessie was the new combat sim. The reason for the change was because many residents moved into the Outland sims and did not want to participate in the combat but rather simply live in peace.
