Now – I have to say, this stuff is gorgeous. My problem is….and I have no idea why, I can never get shadows to work.
Dynamic shadows are built into the Second Life architecture and are hidden away in the viewer code, they’re just not active. I had found a compiled version of the client with shadows activated some time ago, installed it….but nothing. And I’m running a high end machine that was built to render.
Ah well – if you can get it to work give it a shot – it’s experimental, it may or may not work, and if it does it’s gorgeous and I would love to see this as an option in the standard viewer (something you can toggle on and off depending on your computing power and bandwidth).
