Is there an avatar creator?
We are still in the early stages so currently, there is not. However, there are avatars to pick from that you may start with. You can bring your own avatar or modify one that you are given!
Do I have to host the world myself?
Since the metaverse is decentralized, that means you can host your world the same way you do a website. You can find someone willing to host it (equivalent of a webhost) or you can rent a VPS from the thousands of server providers worldwide.
Alternatively, you can host it from your home. The choice is up to you!
Do I need a virtual reality headset?
No, you do not! Most experiences can be used directly from your computer and the build tools are created especially for desktop use. The client has been optimized to work on low-end hardware as well.
Are there bugs?
There are bugs. We are in alpha and under active development to make this a place that we can all call home! We are a volunteer team made up of contributors from all around the world working to make this dream a reality.
