Linden Lab announced the big news that Mesh is now gridwide and many are asking the question which third party viewers support mesh at the moment. These are exciting times!
From what I’ve been hearing it seems that Kirsten’s viewer is mesh enabled and all the other TPVs will support mesh in the near future. According to the The Torch: SL Guide blog post it will take some time to update on other viewers.
Due to ownership outside LL of some graphical elements, they can’t release the source code to the third party viewer creators, that’s why all other viewers will take some time to update. It is said that Firestorm will be able to view meshes within a week and users of Firestorm will be able to upload meshes within a month, thou this is still in the rumor state.
According to Tateru Nino’s blog post about mesh on TPVs..
At present, support for mesh in third-party Second Life viewers is rather thin on the ground. Some are planning it, some are planning to avoid it. Also estate managers can apparently turn mesh support on or off for their regions.
I’m sure many are looking forward to TPVs finally being able to support mesh. It won’t be long hopefully and if you know more about mesh on TPVs then feel free to comment. Would love to know more! 🙂
