Shadow on the wall

June 18, 2008

The recent attention on the experimental shadow feature came just in time for our furniture development. All our items have static shadows underneath them, to add to the realism. Ivanova made some nice and subtle twists to the shadows, and in fact we rebuilt the items in an external 3D app to test how the shadow needs to be painted.

Even though I am convinced that dynamic shadows via the SL client will not be available to the majority of residents within the next 6 months, we have added a new feature to our furniture. Upon click by the owner, the shadows can be switched on or off. Should dynamic shadows come, a simple click will disable our static shadow.
