The In-World Builder in Decentraland
The in-world builder is literally the same as the web builder. Although they are quite similar, the in-world builder has a simpler interface. Therefore, those who have used the web version will be able to use it. You can create scenes by dragging items from your catalog and dropping them into your project. Once you are satisfied with the outcome, you can then deploy these scenes into the course of gameplay.
You can also move, rotate, scale and duplicate any item to suit the project that you want to create. While this builder is open to everyone, owners of land are the ones who will be able to make the most of it. They will be able to publish the projects on their plots after completion. Once they do this, they will see the after effect in the world Decentraland metaverse.
However, the in-game tool is yet to support the use of smart items or land metrics. It does not also allow users export or import scenes to or from other editing programs. Furthermore, you cannot add new packages to the catalog. Simply put, this new builder is still a work in progress.
Meanwhile, the two editors are compatible and players can use both to edit the same projects or scenes. However, the ultimate goal is for the in-world builder to replace the web version. Meanwhile, Decentraland is teasing users about updates that will be coming very soon. Therefore, gamers should stay tuned for for improvements
NFT Emotes in Decentraland
Speaking of creation and effects, NFT emotes are now available on Decentraland. Users can now customize and control their avatars like never before. There are currently three different emotes with different levels of rarity. Users can trade them on the in-game marketplace. In the future, there will be more of these in-game customization. Even creators will be able to design their own.
To customize your avatar with a NFT emote, use this guide below:
- Press B to open the emotes UI, then E to open the emote customization window
- Put your favorite emotes in slots 0-9, then select ‘Done’
- To make your avatar do an emote, press and hold B and the number key of the emote you would like to use.
Although they were introduced for the Milan Virtual Fashion Week, you can still use them within the game.
