Suggested settings for Preferences
Your preferences in most viewers are under the first top tab on your viewer. The following are places where we recommend you reset your preferences.
General: Turn the name tags off. They obstruct your view and in a crowd the name tags are more prevalent than the avatars. You can see the avatar’s names by putting your curser over them.
Master Volume: This controls all the sounds. To protect your ears when you are wearing a headset keep it at a medium level.
Music: Many islands have music that they play. It can be very distracting to go to an island and the music is very loud. Turn the volume down. After everything has rezed in, you can adjust the volume again.
Ambient Sounds: To enhance the experience in most immersive simulations they include ambient sounds. Keep these low until you get into the simulation.
