EEP Windlights

The other day, I finally resolved to come to grips with EEP Windlights. I had only recently learned how to set the Windlight on my land, when they changed to the EEP system, and all my preset Windlights turned to custard. I couldn’t understand the new system, and found previous attempts to understand it confusing and annoying…

… I recently noticed people were selling EEP Windlights, but didn’t pursue it, because I had no idea how to install them, and they were usually pretty expensive…

… the other day, I searched them on MP, determined to get a handle on them, and I found two, ‘ColeMaries Windlight Set (Series #1)’, and ‘JuicyBomb EEP Settings’, which were both only L$1, and had rave reviews, so I bought them…

… there are only four Windlights in the JuicyBomb set, but they are all great, and L$1 is still ridiculously cheap for them…

… but there are are about 50 in the ColeMarie pack, and they are all excellent! It turns out installing them is as easy as unpacking them!… they go straight into your ‘My Environments’ folder, which is in World\Environments…

… from there, you choose a Windlight, and simply either choose ‘apply only to myself’, which you can do anywhere, and everything changes to that Windlight…

… or, if you are on your own land, you can choose ‘apply to parcel’, and you have set your lands Windlight! That’s way less work than it was to set pre-EEP Windlights for your land!…

… this is the ColeMarie Windlight I have set for my parcel…

… I love the clouds, but I also love the light, and how it affects the materials of my home, both outside…

… and inside. I’m so glad I finally decided to decipher the EEP mystery, and found it’s not such a big deal, at all… it actually IS an improvement! I highly recommend these two, near-free Windlight packs, especially the ColeMarie one (:

* Since this post, I have bought another, single EEP Windlight… it came in a folder, and couldn’t be ‘unpacked’, as it already was. As such, it has not placed itself in my ‘My Environments’ folder. As I’m new to this, I’m not sure if it is the anomaly, or the sets I bought were anomalies, in that they put themselves in that folder after I unpacked them. It still behaves the same, but I have to find it in my inventory, then open the folder, which isn’t as convenient as having it in my ‘Environments’ folder.
