This is my version of Dazzle. 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 regular Dazzle:

  • 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 decimals for increased accuracy and control. This makes getting rid of floating point errors easier, as well as finer texture/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).

Stuff I'm working on currently:

  • Redoing the layout of the object editor.
  • Redoing the layout of the preferences panel.

If you have any ideas for an edit you'd like to see, ping me inworld. Don't worry, I'm nice.
