Region settings windlight etc

I visited a sim in SL the other night and liked the effect the lady had, it looked like the setting as far as I can tell by experimenting on one of my regions and comparing changes with a screen shot made in SL, and it seemed the actual effect is called "Magic Hour" in the region environment/sky settings in Singularity, but I know that changing this only affects what *I* see in my own viewer, not what visitors will see in their viewers, so how does one set a region so the majority of viewers see what I do?

I found a reference on Firestorm's site to adding a line to the land description tab to accomplish this, but does this work for most other viewers aside from Firestorm, or just Firestorm only?

/*Sky: "Magic Hour" Water: "preset"*/

I haven't really messed with this stuff till now because up till now I've had a lousy OEM graphics card that would not do shadows etc, now that I have a good card and can have it all turned on, it's made a huge visual difference I never thought was possible just changing cards.

That's parcel windlight -it only works for firestorm and phoenix viewers.
To set it for the region, in Singularity or Firestorm go into the region/estate tools and hit the enviroment tab, then click the "use these settings" radio button and from there you'll be able to pick out the windlight settings you want from dropdown lists (one for water, one for sky, one for day cycle). Once you apply those settings, almost anyone with a 3.x based viewer will be able to see your region with the windlight settings you pick.

This only works for regions, can only be picked one region at a time (it won't set them for the whole estate, despite what you'd think) and cannot be seen by Cool VL Viewer (Henri deliberately ripped out the region windlight code from his viewer for some reason).

It also cannot be seen Imprudence or any other 1.x viewer except for later versions of the Phoenix viewer.

However, if your users are using a modern viewer (NOT Cool VL Viewer), they'll be able to see the settings you chose.

Hope this helps. :)

Definitely helps Han thanks!
I didn't notice the settings in Region/environment had changed and have the "use these settings" menu, either it wasn't in the older imp and singularity I used or I never noticed it or my graphics card had it greyed out or it didn't make any difference when I tried.
Now I have Magic Hour set on Furrthermoor :)

Hi atarixle, I dont think that it's the problem with the specs that you have. There might be a bug and I think you should follow the steps provided in this guide, https://appuals.com/configure-phoenix-f ... wer-linux/. I hope it helps you solve your problem.
