We’ve again decided against using a sim surround as it’s been presenting some minor issues, such as blanking the image on the world map, not fully rendering, and ugly shading under certain lighting conditions. It also requires us to retexture and terraform the terrain and make the water areas much more shallow, which is a project we’d prefer to take on when we’re ready to completely rebuild the sim.
Until then, enjoy the open waters!
Wishing all of our staff, users and merchants a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year for 2017!
Since the recent increase in prims, we’ve decided to add a new sim surround which we think makes the island feel much different and larger.
We will leave it in place for a few days while we take opinions and look for any problems it causes, so there may be places underwater where you fall through the land until we finalize the terrain.
Please let us know if you have any other issues with the new addition!
[update] We noticed some problems that stopped us from using it, so we will look at alternatives after the Christmas holiday.
