This page refers to the old environment lighting system for Second Life. It has now been replaced by the Environmental Enhancement Project (EE) lighting system.

WindLight is the codename for Second Life's atmospheric rendering system that enhances skies, lighting, and other graphical aspects of the environment. "WindLight" is commonly used by Residents to refer to photographs and machinima that include such effects.


  • Environment Editor This page is specifically for information on how to create and edit presets for Windlight (Environment Editor). The information is from 2009 and refers specifically to an older version of the Second Life Viewer, none the less, the Windlight feature is still the same in the current version with some minor difference to the names of the menus and how color is selected. Other than that, all the information is accurate, applicable and very helpful in understanding this exciting feature.
  • WindLight Settings- This page is specifically and only for information regarding how to download, install and use a variety of Resident created Windlight preset settings.
  • Windlight Region Settings Project Viewer - June 2011
