Server-side baking and a Firestorm Tip

A date has been set for Server-side Baking to go live on July 9th, and the Firestorm has an update available for their viewer.

One of the things I’ve always found frustrating about doing an update is how all my toolbars and preferences get re-set to default and I have to start over and do them again for each acount.  The Firestorm team have listened and introduced a settings backup feature which is explained in this video:

If you are currently running on 4.4.0 you can do a backup before uninstalling, then do a clean install of 4.4.1, and then restore your settings backups.

For those of you who are unable to use Firestorm or the official viewer, and need to stick with a 1.23-style viewer, I can reccommend Cool VL Viewer;  go for 1.26.8 for the most up to date SSB version or, if you are feeling adventurous try 1.26.9 (beta) for additional Materials support.  Cool VL Viewer will work on low-powered computers that cannot run the heavier ones.

If you don’t update in time, then your in-world experience is going to look something like this:
