Bye Bye Emerald Viewer :'(

This Post is for those who don’t read their emails and dont follow Linden Labs & the Modular Systems Blog.

I love the Emerald Viewer. It was the BEST Viewer ever… Linden Labs is jealous so of course they want to get rid of something thats better as their own.

The Viewer 2 was a real bad idea too. Here is the LL email and a response from Modular Systems.



Linden Labs Email to the Users:

Emerald Viewer Blocked From Second Life

Dear Second Life Resident,

As of 10am PT Wednesday, September 8, the Emerald Viewer will be blocked from logging in to Second Life as a result of violations of our Policy on Third Party Viewers. Residents who have been using any version of the Emerald Viewer will need to use a different Viewer to access Second Life.

You can download the official Second Life Viewer, developed by Linden Lab, here.
Or, you can learn more about alternative Viewers, developed by third parties, here.

Please be aware that attempting to circumvent our blocking to access Second Life with a banned Viewer is a violation of the Policy on Third Party Viewers and may result in the loss of one’s account. For more information, please read the blog post.

Joe Linden
VP, Platform & Technology Development


Modular Systems Statement:

Dear Lindenlab,

I read the news today, oh boy.

I wonder at why you think your re-defining of the word ‘transparency’ is such a good thing, as it certainly has nothing to do with honesty or integrity. It is a muddy flim of half truths, conniving and deception. I wonder why you have not told the users of Secondlife (50% of whom were Emerald users, by your own statistics) that the new approved TPVs are created by former griefers that you hounded out of secondlife, lock, stock and barrel.

I wonder why you have not announced that Ascent is simply a new name for Interia + nano, two viewers designed to steal passwords and make content theft so much easier. I wonder why you are happy for the devs to be on that team, when you specifically named them to us as not trustworthy and to never be on the Emerald Team. This was during the time you felt you had the right to dictate who should be on TPV teams. Obviously you have self corrupted your own publicly announced standards… READ MORE HERE
