Creating Your Avatar
You will be prompted to create your avatar when you set up your account. There are a few ways to customize your look:
- Upload a Selfie
- Select a Preset Avatar
- Use your custom ReadyPlayerMe Avatar
1. Upload a Selfie
There's nothing more you... than you! You can choose to upload a forward facing, neutral-expression selfie to generate your avatar.
For best results, use a neutral expression and look right at the camera. You can use your webcam or upload a selfie from your files. Make sure to enable webcam access if necessary.
From here, you can:
- Customize your outfit
- Change your skin tone and shirt color by using the sliding scales
You can click "Regenerate Head" if you'd like to use a different photo. Click "Save" once you're satisfied with your look. You can always edit your avatar later on. Read on below to learn about editing your avatar.
2. Use a Default Avatar
If you create an account and click Continue Without Photo, you'll be assigned a randomized avatar that you can personalize.
From here, you can:
- Choose from a variety of random avatars
- Change your skin tone and shirt color by using the sliding scales.
3. Use Your ReadyPlayerMe (RPM) Avatar
1. In another tab, create or log into your account at ReadyPlayer.Me. You can design as many avatars on RPM as you'd like.
2. Access your RPM avatar in Spatial by clicking Customize Body. From here, choose an existing avatar, edit an existing avatar, or create a new avatar.
a. If you want to use an avatar you have already made, click Select.
b. You can create a new RPM avatar directly in Spatial by clicking Create New Avatar.
c. You can also customize an RPM avatar you've already created by clicking Customize.
3. Click Save once you are satisfied with your avatar.
4. Note: If you'd like to use your photo-generated head, please select a Default avatar style, then click Generate Head.
