If you're using Second Life from an older computer, you may find yourself dissatisfied with your viewer's framerate. Here are a few quick tips to try to boost Second Life's performance on slower computers:
+
 
+
# Try turning down your graphics settings from '''Edit > Preferences > Graphics tab'''. In particular, try checking Avatar Impostors and sliding the Avatar Mesh slider to its minimum setting. This will make it a lot easier for Second Life to draw avatars around you, at the cost of some visual quality.
+
# Try turning off "classic clouds" in your Advanced Sky Editor. Classic clouds can detract from your performance in some cases.
+
#* You can get to the Advanced Sky Editor by selecting '''World > Environment Settings > Environment Editor'''
+
#* Then press the '''Advanced Sky''' button in the Environment Editor window.
+
##* In Advanced Sky Settings, choose the '''Clouds''' tab, then un-check the '''Classic Clouds''' checkbox.
+
# Try turning off Particles by selecting '''View > Beacons > Hide Particles'''. A large number of particles on your screen can significantly slow down your Second Life experience.
+
# Try disabling '''View > Property Lines''' and '''View > Land Owners'''. These features use rendering power that could otherwise be used to help the Second Life viewer run more smoothly.
