A Winter edition of the Mirror Box

The holiday season is coming to Second Life! This new Winter mirror box will make a pretty backdrop for your Winter season build. It's easy to set up, and it comes with a few new features that will make your experience so much better.



It contains 23 different scenes, ranging from day to night and from bright to cloudy. After putting it in place it should be easy to find a scene that best matches your wishes.



Its ice floor can be changed from clear to fully snow covered. Because of the mirror box effect, the ice looks like it perfectly reflects all the light of its surroundings.



The mirror box comes with snow covered mesh islands. When you drop them inside your box they will move to the ice level, and then you can move them to the right spot. 



In your folder you will also find a snow add-on. Drop this one inside your box (it moves into place by itself) and you will see snow gently falling close to the walls of the box. The snow add-on can be customized to your wishes: let is now light or heavy, with small or big flakes, let it move sideways in the wind or calmly settle down. It adds a whole new experience to the mirror box!



Another important new feature of the box is this: it can make use of Experience Tools to automatically let you and your friends enjoy environment settings that match the current scene. You should switch this feature on in the Options menu of the mirror box, allow the "Mirror and Backdrop Box Environment Settings" on your land/region and you should enable the Use Shared Environment option in your viewer.  When you click through all scenes your settings will change accordingly now. On top of this feature, you will also find the matching environment settings in your folder, so you can apply them yourself in the region or land settings.



The mirror box is available in ten different square sizes, ranging from 32x32 meters till 1x1 km. You can own them all by purchasing the fatpack.

The backdrop box is derived from the mirror. It has all the same features, except it has no ice and no mirror effect.
