Third party viewers such as Phoenix and Imprudence are equipped with many Windlight settings created by SL residents such as AnaLu, Caliah Lyon, CodeBastard Redgrave and Torley Linden. But they are not in Viewer 2! So I've added a few of my own, plus Strawberry Singh's Windlight settings for shadows and her Closeups effect (with no shadows). This works in the current Viewer 2 (version 2.1.1.208043).

Here is what you need to do, step by step.

  1. Download windlight.zip (384k)
  2. UInzip it and copy the files to any of the following directories:

  3. Windows XP, Vista, and 7:

    Windows Vista and 7 :

  4. Restart SecondLife. You will find the new presets in World->Sun->Environment Editor Advanced Sky and Advanced Water

Having Trouble? Go to Ctrl-P menu, Graphics tab, Advanced, , and make sure your Atmospheric Shaders are enabled.
