Teivaki is an island in the Northern Ocean that is a part of the town of Itokani. Owned by MinecraftYoshi26, the island is the seventh settlement for Itokani. The island began construction on September 18, 2020, and was completed on September 21, 2020.

Teivaki is the agricultural center of Itokani and is known for its abundance of beetroots and apples.

History

The Altéa Farmhouse and four windmills

Following the completion of Waitui and the submission of the plan for Vakasuka International Airport, Teivaki was officially claimed on September 18, 2020. MinecraftYoshi26 had the idea of building a farm island for the town and eventually came with the idea of having the island similar to that of one on the server of Amberstone after the crop fields were visited on The Amazing Race 9.

The island originally was supposed to be wheat and the lighthouse was originally supposed to be lime; however, it was later changed to red as the main crops were changed to beetroots. Additionally, apples were added to accentuate the redness of the island.

On September 18, 2020, the trees and ponds were removed that night and terraforming commenced. Glass and anvils were placed on the islands as marker blocks for the paths, the leaf borders, and the crop fields. On the same day, the Damudamu Lighthouse and the first five windmills were placed on the island. On September 21, 2020, all of the beet crops were fully planted, apples were planted, the Altéa Farmhouse was placed, and the final three windmills were placed.

The island was declared as completed on September 21, 2020, when an in-game map of the island was made.

Geography

The island has winding stone, dirt, podzol, and grass paths that link up the windmills and buildings with large fields of beetroot plants. The walls of the paths grow apples, the island's other staple crop.
