Can't de-render this thing. Can't even select it for editing. And it's full bright.

Strange. I can fly up to it. Still can't select it. I can cam inside and de-render the contents. But not the dome itself or its ground. Is there some way to hide this glowing monster?

You could try highlight transparent Ctrl + Alt + T it may highlight the part you need to de-render it. Edit mode and trying to select it with the click/drag square round it is worth a shot you may catch other objects doing this if so you can right click on one of the objects de-render and it will de-render every highlighted object

Set your draw distance fairly high, open an edit window, and then cam back so that you can draw a square around it.  Too far back won't work - it seems there is a fine line between too close and too far away.  The ones near me are multiple layers, so it took a bit to get it all derendered, but I eventually did.

Spent about 10 minutes trying different distances and selections, but never got a hit on the dome.

Another thought -- can you cam inside it and then select it from the inside?

That worked! Then I was able to de-render another 200 objects or so and have a clear sky.

Fortunately I don't fly near there.

Does a bloated derender black list affect game performance anyone know ?

Good question. I hope it doesn't become part of your excess baggage as you move from sim to sim.

Sounds like somebody did a little "engineering" to attempt to thwart blocking.  Does that abomination happen to have any advertising on it?

No, it's just a house under a skydome, in a stack of skydomes, at too low an altitude. Those things should be moved off mainland, to isolated sims.
