Regional WindLight Settings Coming Soon: New World Notes

Thanks to Hamlet Au

New World Notes report that regional control of a sim’s (or, I’m hoping, a plot’s) WindLight environmental lighting settings will be coming soon. This will give the owner the ability to modify the mood of the sim with tweaks of the sliders on the land controls, similar to what we can already do on an Resident-by-Resident basis in the viewer enviro controls, and make it uniform for anyone walking or teleporting in.  (I would assume that you could still change things to suit your individual desire after landing, but the article does not go into this.)  There is a video to demonstrate this; watch as the avatar goes over the bridge from one region to another.

I can imagine one use for this beyond just creating a mood for certain types of RPG settings:  this could be very useful at Hallowe’en, and possibly Christmas as well.  Combine the lighting with weather control and some artfully positioned rainstorms, leaf drifts or snow piles, and you can put together an incredible region!

Need a House? Check Out Pandora Island

I did a walkabout of my landlord’s island again, wondering if anyone had rented my old house I lived in before I moved to the apartment tower.  Imagine my disquiet when I found that several of the cabins are up for rent again, and my old place may be soon.

I like my landlords; they’ve done good by me in the time I’ve been with Nukunono Estates.  So I figure I’ll try to do good by them again.  This writer gets no compensation from those worthy folk, beyond the pleasure of trying to do a good turn for them (and possibly keeping from having to hunt up a fresh house again.)  If anyone’s interested in a nice estate house at what I think is an excellent weekly rate (L$1000/450), teleport to Pandora Island and check out the properties for rent.  I think you’ll be pleased at what’s available.

Anybody Need a Place to Live in SL? Try My Old House

I just went by my old house on Pandora Island, where I lived before moving into the new penthouse, and it’s still empty.  So, why not do the landlord a nice turn, since they’ve been so nice to me, and give ’em a little free advertising?

Teleport location

You’ll find five rooms, a deck and balcony, and a decent sized yard with lots of pine trees, as well as a nice island location and good neighbors.  The room I used as a bedroom (on the upper right) has an excellent skylight to it.  Large and light, very airy.  I did some additional planting while I was there, and put in a cherry tree and some flowers, which I had to pull when I left the house, of course. The landlord, Nukunono Estates, holds occasional parties, and they have set up several clubbin’ locations around the two islands for your use.

The one defect I found was the stairway, which you have to do some odd twisting around on to hang a corner or two, but your mileage may vary.  I’d suggest dropping in and checking it out.  If you end up at the land office instead of directly in the yard, look for Cabin 4, up on the hill to the east of the office.  You should find a teleport inside the building to get you here.

Price:  L$1000/week/400 prims.
