I’ve spent a lot of time resolving issues with my computers, OSs and broadband service recently. Several changes I made have enabled me to run different Second Life viewers without incidents. Despite the fact that I tested these different viewers, I hadn’t given them a real workout yet. So I was eager to give my Firestorm viewer a real test out where I love to be, on the Blake Sea.
I took my speedboat, a Street Dancer 35, out for a high-speed run across the Blake Sea. I was tentative at first, creeping across sim crossings, but after a half-dozen or so I really took off. It felt great, wind in the hair, racing across the seas! After zooming around for awhile, I finally anchored at Tromp Island.
I used a lot of Strawberry Singh’s suggested camera settings and really put the camera to the test. Eventually I blew-up the vid card, after torturing it with a wide range of Windlight settings, but the vid card didn’t crash the computer. I didn’t expect the system to withstand all the testing. So this was all good!
