Your View

 Shug Maitland (post) suggested to Strawberry Singh that she should do a meme on how people view the Second Life world. Meaning mostly a screen capture of your viewer window. I actually had to think about that for a minute.

What my viewer looks like really depends on what I’m doing. If I’m exploring, I have all the panels pretty much closed. I’ll keep the mini map open. But, if I’m attending a user group meeting, I tend to have chat windows open, sometimes even covering most of the screen. Our I may have the word processor open covering most of the viewer. If I’m working on appearance, I often have the view covered with inventory windows and the outfit window.

I decided that my view ‘of the world’ is mostly my exploring mode. But, that really isn’t how my viewer looks most of the time.

Above is a screen capture of how my screen generally looks right after I login.

Meanwhile, Strawberry has a new meme up titled: Second Life Helpful Tools Meme. It’s a great meme. She’s using some tools I didn’t even know about. So, that’s the end of this article because I’m off to find some new tools.

  1. So many people keep their maps open all the time, thinking maybe I should too. I just feel like it gets in the way too much, lol. Thank you for sharing your screen. <3

    • In several games the mini-map is crucial to survival. I also then to use it for navigation. But, once I get into shopping I close it.

      Thanks for the tips/meme on useful tools.
