Put On Wearables

You can customize your avatar’s appearance by adding wearables, such as a pirate’s hat, a pair of sunglasses, or even a pair of trousers that you designed. Like avatars, you can buy wearables from the Marketplace or use your imagination to create your own.

Buy a Wearable from the Marketplace

We and our users have designed many wearables that are available for your use in the Marketplace.

  1. In Interface, pull up your Tablet or HUD and go to Market.

  2. Search for a specific wearable, or browse all wearables by selecting the ‘Wearables’ category.

  3. Click on any one you like and click the price to buy.

  4. After completing your purchase, click ‘Wear’ to put on your new wearable.

If your wearable looks good, then you’re done! If you want to adjust its position, then continue:

  1. Click Avatar on Tablet or HUD to open the Avatar app.

  2. In the Avatar window, click the hat icon next to ‘Wearables’.

  3. From the ‘Wearable’ dropdown list, choose the wearable you purchased.

  4. Select the joint you’d like to use for your wearable. For example, a hat would be on your head, and fairy wings would be on your spine.

  5. Fine tune the placement using the ‘Position’ and ‘Rotation’ options.

  6. Check ‘Is soft’ if the item is rigged with your skeleton. This allows the item to move and bend with the avatar as it moves.

  7. Click ‘Save’.

Wear Your Own Wearable

You can put on a wearable that you created. All wearables must be hosted in the cloud before they can be used with High Fidelity. Examples of cloud storage options include Amazon S3, Google Cloud Storage, GitHub, or Microsoft Azure. Alternatively, you can upload your custom wearable to the Marketplace and sell to other users.

Once you know the URL for your wearable’s FBX file, then put it on your avatar:

  1. In Interface, pull up your tablet or HUD and click on Avatar.

  2. In the Avatar window, click the hat icon next to ‘Wearables’.

  5. Select the joint you’d like to use for your wearable. For example, a hat would be on your head, and fairy wings would be on your spine.

  6. Fine tune the placement using the ‘Position’ and ‘Rotation’ options.

  7. Check ‘Is soft’ if the item is rigged with your skeleton. This allows the item to move and bend with the avatar as it moves.

  8. Click ‘Save’.
