Sansar Name Label

Avatar name labels are not yet included in Sansar. They are useful as a means to recognise others and initiate social communication with them. Some users have taken to creating an avatar attachment with their avatar name as a label. A 3d text model can be created, exported as FBX and uploaded in Sansar’s “My Looks” as an avatar “Attachment”.

The 3D model needs to be scaled appropriately. I used a 1m X 1m X 1m block as a guide. Positioned the 3D extruded text at a little over 2m high and set its origin to the 0,0,0 point, so when attached to the avatar it would sit over its head. The attachment extent must not exceed certain bounds around the avatar (currently: Minimum -0.8m, -0.6m, -0.05m and Maximum 0.8m, 0.6m, 2.2m).

Male and Female reference avatars in FBX format can be obtained from
