Let the lesson be - never buy un-modifiable objects with shadow-prims bolted on (and don't sell them either).

... that plant needs watering Hamlet! :-)


I like that you call it a deck. Very shadowrun.

I don't believe dynamic shadows are in general use enough to warrant widespread replacement of baked goods just yet. It may be a consideration for your personal space, but I wouldn't rip apart our retail outlet only to find that the final version looks bland and flat to people without shadows enabled.

There's been talk on Jira of flagging prims as a baked shadow so they can go invisible when real shadows are turned on.


I recently removed all my shadow prims and have begun replacing my textures that have baked on shadows. I've already started receiving complaints though. Apparently there are a lot of photographer/screenshooters who don't have the horsepower to see linden shadows. Perhaps it is a little early to make the change, but after seeing real shadows I can't stand to see baked ones.

@Adeon Writer
That would be really awesome. Is there a jira opened for this already, so we can vote?

Thanks Commizar! Usually I'd feel pretentious for calling it that, but this Alienware really deserves it!

Don't worry, Robbie, I watered Kona Gold before taking this pic! I wouldn't neglect him (much). Then again, have you had brown leaf before?

The best shadows are perhaps those that are subtle shading and therefore compatible with shadows rendering.

And yeah, a significant ton of people can't run shadows yet on their hardware, so a switchover any soon will be fraught with complaints about people making their builds look more crappy than usual.
