I had been hearing a lot of my friends talking about "Emerald Viewer”. I had no idea what they were talking about. So I asked a bunch of my Plurking friends if they had ever heard of it and what exactly it did. They were all very helpful in persuading me to try it out. I went to the website and downloaded it.

Here is the link for you to visit:
"GreenLife Emerald Viewer”.

You have to download the two parts, one for voice and the other for the viewer. Lesson learned there from me. Once you have it loaded just start up SL using the GreenLife Emerald Viewer icon on your desktop and you’ll see SL through different “Emerald eyes”. I was so amazed at the difference. I LOVE IT!

It did take me a day to fix all my settings back to what I was used to. You know the simple things you already had set like turning off the typing animation when you are chatting, fixing your setting so that when you are away too long your avatar doesn’t say that silly “AWAY” over your head. I even had to re add the Advanced menu on the top tool bar. For those of you who don’t know how to do that just press CTL ALT D.

I highly recommend that if you don’t have “Emerald Viewer” already that you try it out. One of the cool advantages is that the graphics are much sharper and clearer to see. Also, you can see who is “Looking At” you and where they are looking at.

Funny story when I learned I could do that we went to a club and I said some really naughty things in the local chat just to see what would happen. I laughed so hard that night because of all the names that popped up on top of my avatar. They were looking all over the place. It’s really fun! And now I’m more aware of what I look at now too because OMG *Blushing* I look at a lot of things while I’m just dancing or out exploring.

To turn on the “Look At” just:
Click Advanced
Click Character
Click Show Look At

There is one setting that I will tell you to turn OFF. It drove me crazy the first two days. When I was in chat it would keep popping up an error. This is how you fix it before it drives you crazy too.

Click Edit
Click Preferences
Click Emerald
Click the IM tab
Then select the circle: Decline use of OTR.


Other wonderful HUD’s I have on my screen are:

Express HUD is my newest addition. I love making facial expressions and it’s only 30L so it’s a great addition. You can also load your poses in it so that when you’re in a place that doesn’t let you rez something and you want to take a picture you can. It will even let you pose a friend that is next to you. PLUS PLUS!

Meike TM Designs Hug & Kiss Animator 2.02 Deluxe. Everyone should have one, it’s so much fun to be able to Hug or Kiss just by clicking a button. No pose balls needed.

AO Sexygirl V1 Vista & Co Center. Everyone must have one or else you look like a newbie. *Giggle* I’ve added some changes to mine.

MystiTool 1.3.1.
Is really fun it has a Built in flight assist that helps me because I tend to fly often to really high places such as my skybox and the top of the Eiffel Tower. *Giggle* I love the Radar feature. It can do so many more really cool things you really must go read and check it out. I’m still learning all the things I can do with it.

I hope you check it out when you can. If you have questions you can send me a message and I'll try to help you. If I can't answer the question I know some pretty wonderful friends in Plurk who could. (( BIG HUGS ))


  1. emerald has a radar as well that sound work the same as mystitool...1 less hud to use? :P

  2. I will have to try this. Thanks for the tips. I've heard of it before but I'm always scared to try something new.

  3. Oh you should try it Terri!! I was scared at first but it's so worth it and I'm glad I did. If you need help just ask! *Smiles*
