Great feature, can't wait.

I hope the SL developers take a page from Phoenix and make the adaption of a new windlight optional, instead of automatic. I have greatly enjoyed the windlight popup through Phoenix the last several months, though, and I'm glad the Second Life viewer is picking it up! Even quite a few of my roleplaying sims have picked it up, in addition to Bryn's work having it already in place.

Is this just going to be another damned thing that mainland sim owners don't get?

Rowan Derryth

I read this and thought 'um, haven't we already had this feature?' Then I remember that I'm a Phoenix user.

Adeon Writer

Good to see this becoming an official part of our shared reality. I've been using it opt in for the last few months and it's great.

Nickola Martynov

(Also a Phoenix user) I hope the parcel windlight settings will be able to override the estate settings.

As the former main project lead at Linden for WindLight, and the person responsible for its very inception at the company Linden acquired for this, can I say how absolutely thrilled I am for this feature to finally be hitting SL?!?! This is really, truly great for land owners and all their visitors. This will finally enable everyone to experience the dramatic effects afforded by WindLight as they were truly intended. Kudos, LL, and congrats to all the resis! This will raise the immersion factor for all tremendously!

At Last! My collection of regions trying to represent a Desert World (for a certain type of sci fi Roleplay that shall not be named) will finally not be surrounded by sea for all my visitors! (well, my visitors who don't use Phoenix anyway) Praise the Great Maker!

Coming Soon: A feature that phoenix already had for months. At least LL is giving us something we want.

It has puzzled me for a long time now, that LL has not implemented such a system from the moment on they introduced windlight.
However we are lucky to have thrid party viewers so the Phoenix team provided everyone with I think one of the best features they have thought up so far.

I would be happy if LL would acknowledge that they implemented a feature brought into SL by the Phoenix team and give credit to them.

What can We say? its's Lind Labs whith we are dealing with!
Not only they didnt give credit to who deserves it, but tries to make news of something 90 pct of sl resedidewnts already know (yes, 90 pct are using phoenix, just be in world every day and see):

cube republic

awesome, the region transitions rock too!

Galatea Gynoid

@Scarp: Is that even possible? Last time I checked, it wasn't -- you could own all the land in a sim, but you couldn't own the sim.

Duane

I don't want *any* windlight change setting popups, I have my displays set up the way I want, and those damned blue windows appearing every time #[email protected]$ me off! WAY more annoying than anything else I've found in ages...

Ann Otoole InSL

@Duane: What popups? You must be using some unsupported third party viewer. Try the project viewer. It does it automatically. If you don't want the weather and environment the sim owner who pays for the sim sets up then don't go there.
