Creating Your Avatar
1. Use Your ReadyPlayerMe (RPM) Avatar
- In another tab, create or log into your account at ReadyPlayer.Me. You can design as many avatars on RPM as you'd like.
- 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.
- If you want to use an avatar you have already made, click Select.
- You can create a new RPM avatar directly in Spatial by clicking Create New Avatar.
- You can also customize an RPM avatar you've already created by clicking Customize.
- Click Save once you are satisfied with your avatar.
Note: If you'd like to use your photo-generated head, please select a Default avatar style, then click Generate Head.
2. 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.
