OpenSim HyperGrid : Have you tried the new Linux version of the Alchemy Viewer ?

     This is a really nice OpenSim viewer, it is very easy to use and is not bogged down with a bunch of unnecessary features that the average user might find to be confusing. From what I have heard the code base is based upon a combination of FireStorm and Singularity, so in my opinion that is really good news, both FS and Sing are excellent, and so is this viewer. There is however 1 major Flaw you can not set the DrawDistance beyond 512 meters. Face Palm here on this one / Haa.haaa an oversight I am sure.

     I am not a Windows user so I have no idea if this flaw is inherent to all 3 versions, Mac, PC, Linux

      I have tried to find a Debug Setting to fix this problem, so far I have not been able to find anything. If someone out there has some insight or a fix, please let the community know, this is a really Kool OpenSim Viewer.

No, the code is not a combination of Firestorm and Singularity. It's based on Second Life Viewer.

Hi there Cinder

OK my mistake, If I remember correctly you yourself once said somewhere in one of your blog post's that you were working together with the Singularity team

It is a very nice viewer, the 512 meter max Draw Distance is something most people will more and likely never notice.

Thank You for your comment
