  • OMG
  • LMAO (Alex Only)
  • ROFL (Alex Only)
  • LOL
  • smile
  • : )
  • : D
  • : (
  • sad
  • -.-
  • kiss
  • XD
  • WTF
  • FML
  • xoxo
  • <3
  • : P (Alex Only)
  • SMH
  • IDK
  • yay
  • sigh
  • ^^ (Chloe Only)
HOW TO ADD OR REPLACE AN EMOTE

Using either the main Avatar HUD or the mini Expression HUDs click on the expression you want to use for your emote. You can mix and match eye and mouth expressions to find the perfect emote for you. Once you set your emote list you do not need to wear any HUDs.

 

Type +emote and then the name of the emote you wish to add. For example if you want to add the emote cry, you would wear the HUD, choose the expression you want to be displayed and then type in global:

 

+emote cry

 

or you can use an emoticon instead a word. For example:

 

+emote : (

 

Now when you type cry or : ( in your global chat, your expression will change for a set amount of time.

 

You can use the same expression for more than one command.  For example you can pick a sad expression and type:

 

+emote : (

+emote sad

+emote (T_T)

 

All 3 of those will now trigger the same expression.

 

If you decide you want a different expression for an emote you already saved simply click the new expression you want and repeat the +emote process using the same word or emoticon you used previously. This will replace the previous expression with the new one.

 

You do not need to use punctuation when adding an emote however you can if you want to have variations.  For example if you save OMG as an emote, OMG!! will trigger the OMG emote. However, if you save OMG and OMG!! as two different expressions it will treat them as two separate emotes.  Case does not matter OMG is the same as omg.

 

The emote that is triggered is always the last one in your sentence.  If you have OMG, LOL and : ( all stored as emotes and type “OMG! LOL……: (” it is the : ( that will trigger the expression. You cannot trigger multiple emotes in one sentence.

 

You can permanently change to any emote by using the <> signs around the word.  For example if you have : ) saved as an emote you can use to switch to that expression and have it remain there.  This is useful for setting up your own emote switching via chat without needing to be wearing any HUDs.

HOW TO CHANGE THE EMOTE DURATION

Emote duration is how long the emote is displayed before going back to your previous expression.  To change how long it stays type emoteduration and then choose a value between 0.5 and 60. This is how many seconds your emote will last before switching back to your current expression. For example, if you want your emotes to last 10 seconds you would type:

 

emoteduration 10

 

The default is 3 seconds.

 

The emote duration affects all emotes, at this time it is not possible to set different durations for individual emotes.

HOW TO DELETE EMOTES

To remove an emote from your emote list type -emote and then the emote you want to delete. For example, if you want to remove the “cry” emote from your list you would type:

 

-emote cry

HOW TO LIST ALL YOUR EMOTES

To see a list of all the emotes you have saved type:

listemotes

 

This will list all your emotes and random emotes. Random emotes are identified by their number on the HUD. If you mix and match eye and mouth expressions the list will show two numbers in your chat. The list will show in chat like this:

 

List of emotes: smile   worried

List of random emotes: 02, 08:12

HOW TO RESET ALL EMOTES

THIS IS A TOTAL RESET! To reset the script back to the default settings type:

 

clearallemotes

 

THIS WILL CLEAR ALL YOUR EMOTES INCLUDING RANDOM EMOTES! See Random Emotes section below for more information.

Random Expressions Feature

Turning on the Random Expressions feature will allow the LOGO Mesh Avatar head to switch between randomly chosen expressions. You can customize which expressions you would like use, how long you would like your random expression to last and also how often your expression changes

When using the default expressions from the HUD this feature will choose different eye and mouth selections the first 12 expressions on the expression HUD so you never know what you’re going to get!

HOW TO TURN ON THE RANDOM EXPRESSION FEATURE

To start the Random Expression Feature type in global chat

randomon

HOW TO TURN OFF THE RANDOM EXPRESSION FEATURE

To stop the Random Expression Feature type in global chat

randomoff

HOW TO SET A CUSTOM RANDOM EXPRESSION LIST

You can set a list of expressions you want the Random Expression Feature to choose from. To start creating this list, wear the expression HUD and click on the expression you want to add. Remember you can mix and match eye and mouth expressions! Once you are wearing the expression you want to add, type in global chat:

+random

HOW TO REMOVE A CUSTOM RANDOM EXPRESSION FROM THE LIST

To remove an expression from the random expression list you need to know the numbers of the emote you are trying to remove. To find the numbers type in global chat listemotes. Then you need to wear the expression you want to remove.

 

For example, you want to remove the open mouth expression, which is number 02 on the HUD (only the main Avatar HUD shows the corresponding expression numbers, the mini huds do not) Click on the expression and then type in global chat:

-random

The expression will no longer be in your random emotes list

neweyehud

main HUD displays numbers on lower left of expressions

HOW TO SET RANDOM EXPRESSION CYCLE TIME

Type randomduration in global chat and then a number between 0.5 and 60. This is how many seconds the expression will last. For example, if you want your expression to last 2 seconds you would type:

randomduration  2

HOW TO SET HOW OFTEN AN EXPRESSION IS CHOSEN

To set how often an expression is randomly chosen there are two settings to change.

 

randompausemin  

randompausemax  

 

Setting these values will determine the length of time between each random expression. For example, typing this in global chat

 

randompausemin 10

randompausemax 30

 

means that a new random expression will be chosen somewhere between 10 seconds and 30 seconds after the previous random expression plays. Typing

 

randompausemin 5

randompausemax 5.5

 

means that a new random expression will be chosen every 5 to 5.5 seconds. You cannot set the min and max pause time to be exactly the same, if you do the script will automatically round up the randompausemax value.

Chat Commands Channel

You can change what global channel you use for chat commands. This allows you to change expressions or trigger emotes without having to do it in local chat but it also gives others the ability to trigger your emotes and use listemotes to see which emotes you have saved if they they know which channel you have set and type in the same one. Let your girl/boyfriend choose your emotes for you! Synchronize facial expressions for a whole group (think dancers, actors, etc)

If you set the channel number to 0 (which is local chat) then only you will be able to trigger your emotes.  

 

Developers or those handy with scripting can create HUDs that will trigger emotes by sending chat commands to a specific channel and having the user set their emotechannel to the same one.

HOW TO CHANGE GLOBAL CHAT CHANNEL

To change the global channel type emotechannel and then the number of the channel you want to use. For example, if you want to use channel 10 you would type:

emotechannel 10

 

0 is local chat, any other channel number means no one else will see you using the chat commands but you will need to type a channel number first to trigger the commands.  For example:

/10 smile.  

 

Remember if you have changed the emote channel and want to switch it back you need to put your channel number first, for example

/35 emotechannel 0
