SecondLife New 64x64x64 Meter Prim Size The Forgotten Side Benefit Of Mesh

By Avatar JayR Cela

    Thank's to my Dear Friend, Hitomi Tiponi for reminding me of this, as a comment on my July 22 post about Mesh being rolled out to the main grid. This will really be an incredibly useful feature for SL builder's, that have not yet mastered the art of design with programs such as Blender.

Mesh is now on the Main Grid in various test regions.

To prove it here is a pic of a mesh duck created by Oskar Linden, with a 64 metre NORMAL prim (not a megaprim, you can have prims up to 64 metres now) cage around it that I put there - Mesh Sandbox 5.

I am told by others that have tried that if you create and save a prim between 10 and 64 metres in size in a mesh-enable region and take them to a non-mesh enabled region (i.e. 99% of the grid at the moment) that they will then behave as megaprims (i.e. they are fine there as long as you don't resize them).

Of course this won't be a problem when mesh is rolled out grid wide.
