Avatar Island is all about accessorizing your avatar, but most people want to browse base avatars before they embellish them. Enter the Body Mart, an easy to explore store with all the current base avatars in the marketplace. When people arrive on Avatar Island, the Body Mart is one of the first stores they will see - right near A&J’s. Just click, grab or trigger on one of the models shown, and you immediately are wearing that base avatar. It’s not yet possible to sell base avatars but we are working on that now, and you should be able to start selling them sometime in Q1.
We’d love to link to other base avatar stores that you guys make. We’ve created a Body Mart Template and put in the Environments section of the marketplace (for free) as a way for you guys to get started. You don’t have to use it but, there it is. Here is the path to the avatar change script we are using: https://hifi-content.s3.amazonaws.com/scripts/wearAvatar.js
Just place your base models out, give them a box collision shape and apply this script. Make sure they are “triggerable” and not “grabbable”. Lock’em down for good measure.
If you’d like to build an avatar store and have us provide a portal to it by creating an additional “exit” in our Body Mart, send email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “add my avatar store.”
