Hello,

I am seeing black spots in the night sky which I can assume are supposed to be stars?  Any way to fix this?

Thank you,

Ian

This is a side effect of the upcoming Environmental Enhancement Project (EEP) changes. In updating the lighting to the new EEP standard, it seems the stars got inverted ... this is everywhere .. it will go away soon.

Wow - what a PC, congratulation 💻🙆‍♀️

FYI if using Firestorm: EEP Issues

Thank you, I bought it because I wanted to run SL (and WoW) lag free and at 100% graphics level, and there is one club I go to that regularly crashes my old system at even the lowest of graphic settings so it was worth it.

You can do this without needing a godlike computer.

  • Run 2 nvidia graphics cards in a non SLI configuration (they can even be different models). Connect a monitor directly to each. Set option in NV prefs to allow selection of GPU via context menu.
  • R. Click on SL shortcut and run on secondary GPU. Place SL window on secondary monitor.
  • Launch WoW / Game / Blender as normal.
  • Run fullscreen windowed mode. Chat in SL and do boring world quests while y.... <bfa sucks my guild all left why am I still subbed rant here>

Caveats & notes ....

  • Number of PCIe lanes becomes an issue, so make sure your primary 'gaming' GPU is on 16x. 8x or lower is fine for SL.
  • Make sure your primary display is physically connected to primary GPU.
  • GPU's can render on one card and show the output via the other. It's slower, eats PCIe bandwidth and taxes both GPU's.
  • Can your PSU  run 2 GPU's at the same time? Cooling up to snuff, etc.
  • Works really well with Blender & other games too.
  • OPENGL FULLY ACCELERATED ON SECONDARY ONLY

@CoffeeDujour  O.o... all of that is WAY over my head (probably obvious), no clue what your talking about with your recommendations.  But I like BFA, it's the first expansion since Vanilla where I got the Ambassador Achievement. And yes, I have run Wow quests while dancing, listening to music, and chatting in an SL club. But I digress and this is off topic. I'll look for ya in world and would love to pick your brain about your other response.

I have a Geforce 1060 6 GB ( CPU iCore7 2.8/3.5 GHz ) and uses a 1920x1080 resolution monitor - with ALM on in high graphic settings - I get 70-100 FPS, with ultra graphics settings 34-44 FPS depending on surroundings/avatars around. In my sky box 3400 meters up home alone I get 175-188 FPS. Lowering graphic quality 210-220 FPS.

I do as this:

NVidea Control Panel

3D Settings->Manage 3D Settings->Program Settings

Add Firestorm

Then set the following, leave rest as they are

CUDA GPU: All
Power Management Mode: Prefer maximum power
Tripple Buffering: On


Firestorm:
Draw distance: 240
Hardware Settings->Antialiasing: 8x or 16x

Check that Viewer Texture Memory Buffer is max that is 2048

240 meters draw distance and antialiasing 16 are sweet spots for the modern Geforce cards, provided a good CPU - in your case not a problem.

Drop in performance in clubs is mainly caused by other avatars - this is how things are handled in Second Life and by the viewers, we can only hope LL will improve this. Currently your option to handle heavy clubbing - if performance problems - is to lower Max # of non-imposter avatars and complexity.
