Beacons are colored locators that help you pinpoint special kinds of objects.


Render Beacons

  Makes objects and avatars that match the enabled beacon types have 3D crosshairs through them: a long vertical line (Z-axis) accompanied by shorter X-axis and Y-axis lines. Each beacon type has a different color to differentiate them on a crowded screen. Text also appears in the lower-right showing which beacons are being viewed.

  Makes objects that match the enabled beacon types glow in red. Objects that already have a glow effect on them (set in Build Tools - Texture) are harder to see.
Beacon Width

  Adjusts beacon thickness (in pixels).
