Green Life Emerald Wish List

Filed under: Gaming!, Second Life Shit! — Tags: , , , — Hugsie @ 8:07 am

I love Emerald, it has so many great features that I actually use!  But there’s always room for more things to add to it.  Here’s my Wish List:

  • Ability to activate a group by double clicking it on your groups list, INSTEAD of it opening group chat window, which I rarely need to use.
  • A real color picker, that works on ANYTHING on screen (i.e. avatars), not just whatever RGB values an object was given, while ignoring it’s texture.
  • 64bit viewer for Windows and Linux
  • Better pop-up spam protection so my viewer doesn’t lag to the point of uselessness
  • More robust mute function so the viewer disregards EVERYTHING (objects/scripts) owned by the muted avatar (read griefer)
  • Ability to export LMs as SLURLs and have it available on the login screen so I login to said locations.
  • Ability to log out of SL with out the viewer closing, so you can do a quicker relog, or login with a different avatar.
  • Able to abort a login with out having to Quit the viewer.
  • Support for flexi sculpts and other prim shapes (cool viewer)
  • When inspecting an object, don’t disable the “flycam” (allowing you to freely control your camera as you normally would)
  • Hot-key to toggle double-click teleports.  Often I double click on UI menus and end up teleporting! hate that!

Well that’s all I can think of ATM.  The only problems with Emerald I’ve been having is running two instances or more (-multiple) though it might be due to Windows 7 (64) and how it handles memory as well as video memory.  Often I get messages from the video drivers (nvidia) saying it’s recovered from some kind of failure. Usually results in the Viewer being totally useless, so I have to force to close/kill the app.


  1. “More robust mute function so the viewer disregards EVERYTHING (objects/scripts) owned by the muted avatar (read griefer)”

    Yes please. Perhaps even more desirable than this would be the ability to mute group IMs so you don’t have to leave a group to escape the incessant mindless chatter. I’m in the Burning Life group and it NEVER STOPS, but I want to stay so I can get notices.

    • I try to avoid joining groups as much as possible for that reason, as well as I avoid groups that hand out VIP roles to everyone who walks into their establishment.

  2. Hugs,

    Do you know where to get the Emerald Beta client for Windows?

    • I have no idea if they release betas. As far as I know all viewers (and software of this nature) are on going betas since development for these applications never stops. If you’re looking for something cutting edge, Emerald by far is, compared to any other SL viewer out there. With that said they hadn’t had an update to the viewer for a good month now. Hmmm…
