Wow. I’d better get my GPU upgrade figured out. Currently my frame rate is frustratingly slow for photographing any landscape shot with avatars. This makes me drool, quite frankly. The custom effects are gorgeous

A note here from Stevie:

I am working on an Apple MacBook Air at present and don't have access to a PC with Firestorm installed, so I have a favour to ask those who do. If you use Firestorm on a PC could you please confirm these file paths I found in SL help forums.

I realise every version of Windows and different versions of Firestorm may have subtle differences, just need to be able to point people in the right direction to install.

C:\Program Files\Firestorm-Releasex64 for the 64bit versions of Firestorm and C:\Program Files (x86)\Firestorm-Release for the 32bit version of Firestorm. In the app folder \app_settings\windlight are the .TGA files at that level or inside another sub folder? A screenshot would be appreciated. Thanks, Stevie Davros


Advance skies are coming to second life soon with the ability to change clouds, the sun, etc

She's dead Jim


As deserted and empty as SL is these days, you should have no problem with lag, there's no one there to lag up the shot.. lol



That looks correct.

Stevie Davros

Thanks qwantzy.

I have opened a Marketplace store for those seeking to try out the clouds textures and associated windlight settings.

Now available in my Marketplace store here :)

I have made a lengthy tutorial on Youtube here:
