Manumanu is the second island settlement of Itokani, located in the Northern Ocean in the region of Senikau. The island was built by McYoshi26, the mayor of Itokani. Construction of the island began on April 4, 2020, and was completed on May 3, 2020.
Manumanu is notable for being the fauna and flora-filled island of Itokani and having Pablo Memorial National Park.
When planning the region, MinecraftYoshi26 wanted to make this island a nature-focused island, with an abundance of flora and fauna. After finishing the island of Karakarawa, Manumanu was claimed on April 4, 2020.
When minor construction started, the island was deforested and cleared of grass and small water ponds. The lava pool that originally existed was kept. The land had some minor smoothing with world edit, making the island less hilly. A few animals on the island that were spawned there naturally were kept and still roam the island.
Major construction began on the island on May 1, 2020. Some beaches on the island were paved with grass to give more room for the trees that would be placed in. The first major construction was the Pablo Memorial in the center of the island. Following that was the creation of the Roka Pond and the Koula Hot Springs, which had some help from mine_man_. Dromodromo Lighthouse was also pasted in during this construction period and turned yellow to represent the bees and the main color of the island. The Manumanu Itokan Memorial Graveyard was built shortly after to represent the less touristy and more native aspects of the island.
The island was given a nature revamp, as Galili Mountain was created to be the highest peak on the island. After all of the paths were placed and connected, jungle leaves, grass, oxeye daisies, dandelions, and lilies of the valley were used to decorate the grounds. Following that, approximately 16 different types of palm trees and oak trees were placed to make the island heavily forested and dense.
Following the placement of over 120 trees, many different faunas were spawned to populate the island. The faunas that currently populate the island include cows, sheep, pigs, chickens, parrots, cats, bees, rabbits, turtles, and fish. Currently, the largest animal populations on the island are cats, parrots, and bees. The rarest animal population on the island are rabbits, as the population is dwindling due to the large population of cats attacking them.
The island was declared completed in less than 72 hours after major construction began on May 3, 2020, after the Aroma Coffee was placed.
The island is named after the Fijian word for 'animal'. A few locations on the island are named after Fijian words. Galili Mountain is named after the Fijian word for 'lonely'. Itiko Village is named after the Fijian word for 'community'. The Koula Hot Springs is named after the Fijian word for 'gold'. Vonu Beach is named after the Fijian word for 'turtle'. The Iwirini Farms are named after the Fijian word for 'circle'. The small lake that flows into the ocean in the north, Roka Pond, is named after the Fijian word for 'color'. Dromodromo Lighthouse is named after the Fijian word for 'yellow'.
The majority of the island is in the Pablo Memorial Nature Preserve. Its name serves as a memorial honoring a named bee on a survival server that died.
Some places on the island are references to pop culture. Two of the village houses in Itiko Village are references to pet names, while the other is named after a villager from the video game franchise Animal Crossing. The residence on top of Galili Mountain, Toph's Home, is a reference to a character in the media franchise Avatar: The Last Airbender. The unmarked Tree of Time at the top of Galili Mountain is named after a tree from the same franchise.
In the southwest, the unmarked Vakayawan Ruins is a reference to the game show Survivor: Vakayawa.
Manumanu is located in the Northern Ocean. It is the north-westernmost island in the region of Senikau. It is one of the few islands in the region that does not have land that touches a lukewarm or warm ocean. The waters surrounding the island are either a deep ocean or ocean biome.
In relation to other settlements, the closest other settlement is the island of Vinataka to the south.
Builds and attractions
Manumanu has a total of 6 buildings: an Aroma Coffee, the Dromodromo Lighthouse, the Pablo Memorial Nature Preserve Ranger Station, Purrl's House, Squig's House, and Tweak's House.
Pablo Memorial National Park has numerous attractions, including the Pablo Memorial in the center of the island and the Koula Hot Springs in the southeast. The Pablo Memorial is a large statue of a Minecraft bee made out of stone, originally brought onto the server by Echohue. The Koula Hot Springs is a bubbling pool of water known for its hot, relaxing temperature and atmosphere. The bright hot springs are filled with natural yellow plants and ores.
The other major point on the island is the Manumanu Itokan Memorial Graveyard. It is a historical native site with native Itokans being buried there.
Itokani Local Boats take passengers to other islands in Itokani. Manumanu is only connected to Waitui by boat at the western portion of the island at the Manumanu Main Dock.
