(OOC Parcel Specific Windlight settings!!)

Now that Phoenix will allow us to customize windlight settings on a parcel-by-parcel basis, maybe we should settle on a New Babbage default? Alaex Aeon uses 

/*Windlight Sky:”Bristol” Water: “Murky”*/

… which I love. Can we get a consensus on a standard?

    does it allow for night/day?

    in other news… viewer 2.4 beta fixes the water level issue.

    *signs that and sends a runner off to armada*

      in OTHER other news, The SL community is SO fragmented with regards to viewers and their features that “standards” are impossible.

        Agreed, on this! Its not even funny anymore.

        word. apparently the phoenix people think the water level thing is old news.

        but stuff is happening a lot faster than it was. i’ll call that Good.

    I have been using Jimmy’s “Babbage Winter” setting recently.

    The thing with Phoenix parcel windlight settings, you have to use one of the ‘default’ settings that come with the viewer.  As nice as Jimmy’s “Babbage Winter” is,  only people who have that particular setting in their viewer’s windlight database will be able to see it.

    As for viewers that do not support the parcel windlight settings,  I think that there would be zero impact.  They would see what they always have seen: the viewer’s windlight settings.

    I have to go with Aeolus.  “Bristol”  and “Murkey”  look Babbagy to me  :-)

    On a related note, if we all agree on windlight parcel settings,  we should have a new thread with a ‘How To’ that walks land owners through the process of applying the windlight settings to their parcel?  It only takes a few seconds once you know how.

    What I would really love to see is this same feature on a sim-wide basis. Maybe we can lobby for that next.

    The only problem with this is going around town I kept getting pop ups asking me if I wanted to change my windlight setting, I click no. Then 2 seconds later I get another message from a nearby parcel and if I happen to stray into a parcel again as some reach under the streets I get yet another. So I found the debug setting to turn it off permanently.

    Visitors might get annoyed being spammed constantly as they explore babbage if they don’t want to change their settings.

      That certainly would be annoying. I know just from moving from sim to sim the pop up that tells me the new sim is running a different variant of the server software gets annoying. Mainly because I don’t CARE.

      I experienced it for the first time just a day ago in New Babbage and it confused the heck out of my at first. It wasn’t asking me if I wanted to change it, it just automatically did. I don’t have the best eyesight since my ototoxicity incident, so despite loving a foggy atmosphere for New Babbage, I generally keep my SL screen on full midday setting. So having to constantly reset it moving in and out of parcels with the nice foggy setting was getting a bit annoying.
