Did Zwift lose a world from the past?

I just watched a few minutes of this video:

Where is it? Looks like an old Zwift course? It looks really nice! Is there a plan to bring it back or attach it to Watopia?

Jarvis Island is the name and was available early in the beta.

sadly impossible to bring back as its not based on current game engine (it was all hand crafted code), thanks for the Nostalgia though :slight_smile:

maybe one day Jon will port a special copy for us to fly too :smile:

What is the current game Engine? It looks similar to the TSX engine that is used in Train Simulator (DTG).

Zwift (Jon Mayfield) designed his own game engine. Rather impressive.
