Firestorm Viewer Downloads For Second Life


IMPORTANT:
How to update Firestorm:

OpenSIM versions of FS do not have Havok. That only matters if you're uploading mesh objects and need to specify the mesh physics properties, or if you need to manipulate the region navmesh for pathfinding. The terms of the Havok license prohibit its use anywhere but Second Life, so it's not present in OpenSim versions. Furthermore, the Havok libraries are not currently available for 64-bit platforms.


Firestorm Viewer is certified to be free of viruses and malware.
