Starlight is now at 2.0.6. Some very interesting additions in this update. Nope, not going to spoil the surprise - go and check it out:

I tried to shout on my sim last night and realized that the say/shout option was missing, or at least from its familiar location. Anyone know whether it has survived 2.0?

The draw distance slider in the top bar is nice, just watch out that you don't mistake the number for your L$ balance. No, would never happen to me, no, never.

Installing the optional features of the vertical IM tabs, the longer chatbar and the third option is even easier than installing the whole mod (just drop a xml file in a folder and voila!), just in case anyone was worried that they'd have to edit any files.

Would be nice if KirstenLee adapted the draw distance slider in a new release.

Actually, "now" meaning "current, but not really mentioned all that much previously on the forums."

Still LL 2.0.1 and Starlight mod setup - and I get this:


Strange black bar at the top of the chat line for IM/group chat.
Any idea what it is and how to get rid of it? Preferably the latter?

I get that too, and it looks like there's a border style applied to the wrong element. Have my fingers crossed it will be cleaned in some future skin release.

The sky is falling...

The page is nice, though in some cases, I cannot help feeling that it is stating the obvious. But still better than nothing, I suppose.

Excuse me while I dive into the long, long list of popup confirmation elements and try to find auto accept and auto popup once again...

Thanks for the annotation. I'm always a bit wary of undocumented shortcuts because one of my friends has a tendency to tell noobs: "You can get rid of lag with Ctrl-Q".

Alt+F4 has the same effect as Ctrl+Q - to close the application.

I would appreciate if people don't start to ridicule this thread.

The best tip for 2.0 linden viewer is not to use it.

Hi KL! Thanks for the partridge.

It would be very nice if you could include the draw distance slider which the Starlight mod already has in one of your further releases, if it isn't too much hassle in your UI.

In the comments on your site, I read that a "close" or minimize button directly in the sidebar would be hard to do or at least require too much unneeded coding. I haven't tried that myself, so I'm asking... can a user actually drag your shortcut control panel from the bottom to the top bar and dock it above the sidebar? I'm so used to click any x in the upper right hand corner, I automatically want to do that in the sidebar. If I could.

The last time I tried your viewer, I still had tons of "replaced missing body/clothing item with default" errors and I eventually gave up on trying to fix it. I usually had to dress up the avatar in LL's release, log out and switch to your viewer to have a good chance of each item showing up. Despite seperated caches, despite fully loaded inventories. I have no idea what I was missing...

Apart from Kirsten's Viewer, I got another issue or rather the same old one I ranted about - where's the stupid function to turn off auto accept and display of inventory offers? Can't find anything like that in the popup confirmations in preferences.
