  1. I went through this issue a few months back when I imported a few hundred WL settings to EEP. Many of them required substantially different settings. In the end I got close with most of them. There is no shortcut way to do it. If you persevere with trying to get the look you want you will get there. Sometimes, counter intuitive quite different settings are needed. I reported my issues to Linden Labs.
  2. I find that clicking on the E, W, N and S arrows gives me the fine control of movement of the Sun or Moon. I agree that click dragging the actual ball about is a bit rough and hit or miss.
  3. EEP resolves this. Adjustable size and adjustable phases. See here for examples: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Replacement-Moons-Pack-EEP/20096383
  4. I think it is just the same old moon as before. They are leaving it up to users to add content. The same goes to the clouds, which remain the same old low resolution peril noise fuzz as before. I have some Moons available for a modest price in Marketplace: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Replacement-Moons-Pack-EEP/20096383
  5. I recently had a customer purchase a product which when delivered should have been a folder full of items and a notecard. The customer only received the notecard in the folder. I recommended they redeliver and the same problem occurred for them. I confirmed they had paid and I had received a transaction record. In the end I manually shared the folder to them, after testing delivery myself without issues. Is this a rare event? What might have caused the problem? I have not had such an issue before.
  6. Check out some of these quick videos to see what I have been achieving in the past few weeks:
  7. Yep, I have been making a large number of sky files and I have figured out settings that minimise a lot of the issues and produce really nice results for what I am trying to achieve. Dropping back to a default settings really makes things look rather blah...
  8. Is it possible to amend the default sunset to achieve the same look as non-EEP? Could it be the settings for default sunset that are part of the problem?
  9. From what I have seen in the past few weeks the performance hit is not that drastic for EEP over Windlight. It is about the settings you have on in your viewer. In Windlight I get down to 5fps if I max out all graphics settings, In EEP I get 50fps if I lower all the graphics settings to bare bones... Has anyone doe a forensic study of the differences with all settings and compiled a report?
  10. I was floundering until I realised that so much had changed in the way it all interacts in EEP vs Windlight. Many of my EEP settings from old Windlight are radically different to try and achieve the same result. And the counter-intuitive way the colours all interact. Colour choices are as important as the atmosphere settings to get the desired look...
  11. Hi Chic, here are my settings. I also sent you the EEP sky file inworld.
  12. I can't understand why you cannot get a dark sky. Here is one with almost no ambient light and artificial lighting and a faint starlight is all there is, made in Firestorm EEP Beta. I have not explored day cycles as of yet however...
  13. I have now had a lot more time to experiment with (and struggle with to some extent) the new EEP settings. My increased understanding of the substantially different settings necessary to achieve the same effects as my previous windlight files has eased my woes. In particular, settings for Haze Horizon, Haze Density, Sun Glow, Distance Multiplier and Cloud Density have had to be considerably altered to achieve the same appearance in the sky for my desired appearances. For example, one of my sky files used for a sunset appearance for use with one of my cloud textures: Setting
  14. Thanks for the reply, yeah I have figured that might be the case. My textures held only by me but referenced in my sky files are confirmed as No Transfer and I have not figured any way that could be circumvented at least. The sky files I sell and their saved-as alterations remain No Transfer. With some effort on the part of the purchaser, they can put in all their sky settings manually and change the sky I supply to have the look they want. It would have been way easier for them to be able to slap in the graphic, such is life.
  15. You need to go into Atmosphere & Lighting and change a bunch of the settings there to get the result you seek, but they would need manual tweaking for each slight change in the sun position. There does not seem to be any linking between the settings in Atmosphere & Lighting and Sun & Moon. Of course in RL everything is closely interlinked.
