Update 19-Jan-2023: Ready Player Me SDK 2.0 onwards uses the Unity Package Manager approach. Details for using it in new projects and updating a Unity project using a previous SDK 1.* are in this article… https://wolf3d.notion.site/Unity-SDK-2-0-Migration-Guide-32ca364853f44b35ac527bf61fa100ed. Note that Git needs to be installed on the system in advance. BOTH Unity Hub and the project should be opened AFTER Git is installed.

Unity via Blender .glb to .fbx conversion

Blender

Blender 2.9x has .gltf/.glb file format import capabilities built in. I tried to export the avatar in .dae (Collada) format with Second Life/OpenSim mode ticked. The mesh does show in the Firestorm 6.4.21 mesh uploader but the rigging is not compatible. I assume a Second Life/OpenSim compatible armature/skeleton wold have to be bound to the mesh to make it work.

    The avatar download URL used to be https://api.readyplayer.me/v1/avatars/AvatarURL.glb but from February 2023 it has changed to https://models.readyplayer.me/AvatarURL.glb. The previous URL also continues to function.
