Viewer Skins/Dazzle MC
From Second Life Wiki
NOTE: This will provide a new skin selection. It won't change your current skins.
- Find your Second Life installation folder
- Go into the \skins\silver\ directory, and create a backup of colors.xml
- Download the source for this skin and save it as colors.xml in the \skins\silver\ directory, overwriting the original file if necessary.
- Switch to the "Silver" skin in preferences.
This is my version of Dazzle (now called the "Silver" skin).
I use it regularly, both as a "sandbox" skin to test out tweaks/edits to xml files, as well as my main skin while exploring SL. Here are the differences between Dazzle MC and 1.20:
(version numbers are for the skin)
- Fixed the wrong version of floater_tools.xml that slipped in.
- Added Link/Unlink to the pie menu.
- Tools menu no longer autohides (change is being reversed anyway in an upcoming version).
- Transparency can now be set to 100% from the Texture tab.
- Changed up the menu a bit. Added:
- High-res snapshot.
- Quiet snapshot.
- Compress snapshot to disk.
- Stretch both sides.
- Stretch textures.
- Shortcuts for Edit Linked Parts (ctrl-shift-e) and stretch both sides (ctrl-b).
- Selection and grid options now in sub-menus.
- Updated file structure due to changes in RC13.
- Removed custom fonts to allow for skin switching.
- New selection in Skins preference panel: Dazzle Mc.
- (Clicking the image doesn't work, but the radio button does).
- Skin only overwrites one file now.
- Removed search bar from the upper right. Checkbox in the preferences now toggles lag meter.
- Replaced "Go..." (movement controls) in the pie menu with "Inventory".
- Found a bug that causes the "Communicate" button to shrink in certain circumstances. Looking into it.
- Added new fonts:
- See http://www.redhat.com/promo/fonts/
- (This is sorta a test, so let me know how it goes)
- Updated floater_directory.xml.
- Improved attachment pie menu for prim-based avatars (VWR-8080).
- Attachments can be inspected as well as touched.
- Friend requests and calling card offers can now be ignored to keep online status private (VWR-4826).
- 0.005 was excessive. Cuts now increment at 0.025 (VWR-7877).
- Changed "Select Texture" to "Select Face" (VWR-5962).
- Changed Right Click > "Delete" in the Inv to "Move To Trash" (VWR-7238). The mac version makes more sense in this case.
- Communicate button doesn't auto-resize anymore.
- Removed the "Release Keys" button.
- Fixed the spacing for the media/voice controls.
- Chat history can now be minimized.
- Changed the grid increments to 0.025.
- Set cache size up to 10 GB.
- Texture tab now increments at 0.025 instead of 0.1
- Updated floater_directory.xml to RC9.
- Single line toolbar.
- Moved most of the old toolbar up into the menus. All shortcuts still work, and there are still icons for Communicate, Inventory, and Chat.
- Slimmed down media controls. All icons in the toolbar now act as buttons.
- Removed channel indicator in the voice controls (deemed it unnecessary).
- Reorganized viewer menu (see VWR-7060 for a full list of changes).
- New help commands:
- Help > About Skin...
- Help > Check For Skin Updates...
- Added "Return" to Tools (VWR-1363).
- Object location/size/rotation now show up to five decimal places. This makes getting rid of floating point errors possible, as well as allows for finer prim alignment.
- Path cuts display to the fourth decimal place, incrementing by 0.005. (Path cuts don't handle five decimal places well).
- Texture tab too displays five decimal places.
- Can now touch HUD attachments through the pie menu (VWR-6571).
