- There is still a lot of work to do on avatars. As Somnium Space is primarily focused on the first person virtual reality experience, avatars are still something which need to progress somewhat. That being said, testing is in progress.
- Early signs appear to show the possibilities of creating your own avatar and importing it into Somnium Space. This will add a much higher degree of customization to the process, allowing users to express themselves in a way which isn’t tied to just being one set size, or even human.
- Although still in its infancy, there is an SDK document for avatars available here, which will give you a greater idea of where avatars are heading for Somnium Space.
