I think you might be conflating Worlds Adrift the game with Worlds Adrift Island Creator. Worlds Adrift itself is a physics-based survival sandbox game. You won't be creating islands in it; you'll be exploring a mostly procedurally-generated world with the usual set of crafting, building, and combat game mechanics.

Island Creator, which is what Gwenette seems to be talking about, is a purely-offline editing tool with which you can create and submit islands to the developers for possible inclusion in the final game. You can download and check out other people's submissions, and the tool itself is certainly very cool, but it's much more akin to Blender or Photoshop than Second Life.

Anybody going into Worlds Adrift expecting a virtual world will, unfortunately, be very disappointed. It's very much a game in the traditional sense. Think a more massive ARK: Survival Evolved, Rust, or even Minecraft.

Taylor is right, the Island Creator is not actually part of the game (if I remember correctly) and was to encourage people to build stuff that 'might' be included. It was fun though but after fiddling around decided to wait. Been too much stuff that never quite makes it over the last few years....
