      Description

      Jellydolls

      With the new jellydolls you can choose per avi whether to render according to currently effective complexity limits 'Render Normally', to always have that avi as jellydoll 'Do Not Render' or to always see the avi despite it's actual render weight 'Render Fully'.

      This is found in the RMB menu when clicking on an avi
      and get's saved to avatar_render_settings.xml, staying persistent over relog -
      but there is no graphical representation (list, window, ui marker, avi marker, ...)

      Why

      It matters cause people tend to forget what they have set an avi too;
      E.g. always render someone just to check the appearance out at one single occasion - meeting that avi another time with maybe even higher render weight, getting fully rendered inducing viewer lag. Now what if you happen to meet 5 of those forgotten 'render fully' avi at once ...

      Improvement

      So I suggest to enhance the asset blocklist (that holds avi and objects getting persistently derendered).

      'Do Not Render' and 'Render Fully' avis should be listed there, having another column added showing states:

      • always jellydoll
      • never jellydoll
      • always derendered

      This is no naming suggestion and would also make the blacklist a black- and whitelist

          Didn't add it to the asset blacklist since it would mix up two different functions, but made a new floater especially for this, which can be opened via World -> Avatar Render Settings, in 50556 (http://hg.phoenixviewer.com/phoenix-firestorm-lgpl/rev/0ad717e8ffa6). Right-clicking on one or multiple avatars opens a context menu which allows direct changing of the setting.
