The avatar will represent you in the virtual universe of Entropia Universe. You choose the gender, appearance, and name for your avatar which may have nothing to do with your real life person. While in game, all your actions with other players, the environment and other objects are translated through your avatar movements.
Entropia Universe allows for a high range of emotions, states, and movements for your avatar. While speaking, an avatar will emit a monotonous language to show that you are currently writing text in the Chat dialog. Most of the actions require your avatar to be in a certain range and any clothing, armor, weapons, tools or applied mindforce is visible on your avatar.
To select your own avatar, either press the Alt key on your keyboard, or click on your avatar’s health bar.
