Azure Skin

the Azure skin was created and is kept up by NiranV Dean, the goal of this Skin is to bring back the S18 Skin which could be found in Kirstens Viewer S18. The Skin has been completly redone for 2.x Viewers and is only possible to get through NiranV´s Mod which acts like the StarLight Skin , it adds Options/Features and tries to make 2.x Viewers overall more usable, both the Mod and the Skin should always be used together to prevent Problems and get the best Viewing result.

The Skin itself is not Version dependant but should be always used with the newest available Linden Viewer if possible (Development Viewers)
