Testing windlight presets. Here the architecture is shown with Mescaline Tammas’ “Rot” preset.
Togs for bots... ;-)
Custom avatars were created for the scripted agents of LPDT2. There are 7 full avatars, of both sexes. 2 of these will be given as gifts to SL visitors at the entrance point of the installation.
