Dear Linden Lab,
I decided to try your new viewer. I’ve been happily using 2.1.1 for a while now, but as you know, it’s good to keep up. But there is a problem. Can you see what the problem is?
I’m having to wear sunglasses inside my house because I can no longer turn local lighting off. Do you know why I can’t turn it off? Well, it appears that someone believed that no one ever used that feature. That someone who believed that? Oh, they were wrong. Wrong.
Very many of us turn off local lighting. We all have our reasons, but taking photos is the biggest one. And if you wanted to take it out of the preferences, I suppose you have your reasons, although those reasons are not cool for the rest of us. But could there be at least a debug setting so we could fix it? Because right now, we have to turn off basic shaders to get the lights off, and then that leads to water that looks like this:
Not cool, Linden Lab. Not cool.
Please fix this as soon as you can. The fate of nice photos everywhere depends on you.
PS: Sorry about creating lots of accounts tonight. I got a little crazy picking funny names. Don’t judge.
