Ola's Virtual World FAQ

Why is my virtual world dark? The lighting within the virtual world is based on the time in the real world and thus night and day are reflected. To override these lighting conditions, from within the Second Life Viewing client, and when you are logged in, select the World menu and go down to the Sun item. From the Sun sub-menu, select a lighting preference based on the time of day. Within the Phoenix viewing client, these settings are under the World->Environment Settings menu.

Are there instructions to use the official Second Life Viewing Client? These can be found by clicking here, although please note that a recent update to their viewer has removed the ability to connect to third-party engines. Therefore a February 2012 release needs to be installed with various tweaks to prevent the client from automatically updating itself to the newest version. These are outlined in the step-by-step guide.
