What a Difference!
For quite some time I have been using the new specular (shiny) and normal (3D texture) materials on my mesh items. For example, that nice sheen on my tables and chairs — you will only see if it you have Advanced Lighting checked in your Graphics tab of Preferences. Also, having a light source near something will make it shine more 🙂
You do not need shadows or anything else checked, if you are concerned about lag. Checking Advanced Lighting only allows you to see the materials (and more than 6 lights), and does not by itself cause lag. Try it, you’ll like it!
NOTE: I have found that on Firestorm and Singularity, the materials might not be visible on Ultra — if not, try High.
********* A note about the trestle tables from last week *******
I made a more distressed texture and put it on one of the tables, so they are no longer identical. I also made a more distressed version of the Louis XVI chairs and put them in the same display as the distressed table.
************ Cougar’s Blog *********
I dont keep up much with blogs, but one I do like to check is Cougar Sangria’s. Her photography is just fabulous, and she has assembled a fascinating collection of furnishings (many from La Galleria) for her creatively modified Rose Mansion/Mountain Creek Cottage. I love seeing all the changes and innovations she has made. Take a peek sometime http://classiccougarstyle.com/
This wall decor — I don’t know what to call it so calling it a collage — is on the wall of one of the new trestle table dining rooms. (I did not make the mesh itself but liked it so grabbed it for you and added the picture.)
