  1. Either EEP is crazy, or it's not working for me as intended. For the record, I usually keep my graphics on ultra or close to it. I'm using Firestorm because almost everyone I know does as well. I prefer to set the viewer to "shared environment" because I want to see the same sky that everyone else sees. I don't want to be looking at bright daylight while my friends are all midnight, for example. Here is my the problem. Under shared environment, for some reason it's constantly dark. Nights are really dark, no surprise. But even the day is too dark. Instead of a bright blue sky, it's a ve
  2. Thank you, I think that's it!! I did some serious testing today and found out that the middle graphics setting got me a better frame rate than the lowest setting. I think that's why catznip seemed to work better initially. And thats not all - Today I extensively tested Firestorm and Catznip viewer at 4 locations. Both graphic settings were identical (set to mid) and the network settings were identical too. In each case I gave it several minutes to settle down so everything could load after teleporting to that location. 1. Inside a small box 2000m in the air: Firestorm: 80 fps, Catzn
  3. I guess that's my only real option, but I wonder how many times do I need to upgrade? I wonder if Sansar will be better. I do have to point out that your 120 FPS doesn't really exist. At least I've been told by people that the highest SL supports is 45, so anything above that is superfluous. I did try Catznip viewer and here's the weird thing - it did noticeably improve my FR at the clubs. However, back at my house, it was slightly worse then Firestorm! However on balance, it performs better. Only problem is I'm used to running Firestorm with the Old Phoenix interface and Catznip
  4. Yes, I've turned off advanced lighting. As I said, when I'm at clubs I turn down to the absolute lowest setting, and it's still laggy. Using a different viewer is a new suggestion - I'll try that.
  5. Trust me, I don't need any tips on tweaking my settings or selecting my graphics card. I have tried EVERYTHING. And even though my graphics card is from 2015, that doesn't tell the whole story - SL ran better for me back in 2009, and I was obviously using a much more low powered machine back then.
  6. Second life didn't used to be as laggy as it is today, and I don't think I'm imagining it, because my friends all say the same thing. I've been on almost 10 years now, since 2009. I didn't pay attention to my frame rate in the past, but in the past we could go to clubs, even crowded clubs as a group. It was a little laggy, but we could dance, and see each other dancing. Now it's impossible to enjoy except at the most empty places. For example, as I type this, I'm in the Fogbound club (a popular place every night). Even with my graphics preferences on the absolute lowest settings, I'm get
