Back in the summer of 2006, Maroon looked like Mars on a bad day. Almost the entire sim was for sale (remaining on the market for months), seemingly unwanted and unloved. It was acquired by Deltango Vale, who converted the once-arid desert into a lake. On a small island in the center of the lake, she planted one of Arwen Eusebio's magnificent treehouses where she lives with her partner Cade Jae.
With land donated by Deltango Vale, Qu Qi (who built the Purple-Cecropia ferry) rebuilt the Second Life Railway arches into a smooth, sweeping curve across the water.
