Avatar emotes

Emotes overview

Avatar emotes are short, predefined animations that your avatar can perform in order to non-verbally express emotions and sentiments. Emotes are triggered by using the Emotes menu or by entering commands in Nearby chat while in VR or Desktop mode.

Emotes menu

The Emotes menu allows you to choose from the list of available emotes rather than typing them into Nearby chat. To access the Emotes menu, choose Socialize > Emotes from the main menu, or press Ctrl + E on your keyboard. To dismiss the Emotes menu, click the X in the center of the menu.

List of avatar emotes

Here is a list of avatar emotes that are currently available. Enter them in the Chat panel and press Enter to trigger them, or choose from the Emotes menu.

Note: It is possible to replace the animations played by these emotes with custom animations that you either import to Sansar or purchase from the Sansar Store. See Custom avatar emotes for more information.

Emotes that play for a short period of time when triggered. These emotes may be triggered while standing, walking, running, dancing, or sitting:

  • /cheer - Causes your avatar to play a cheering animation. 
  • /clap - Causes your avatar to clap its hands for a few seconds. 
  • /lol - Causes your avatar to perform a laughing animation.
  • /point - Causes your avatar to make a pointing gesture. 
  • /raisehand - Causes your avatar to raise its hand. 
  • /thumbsup - Causes your avatar to give a "thumbs up" gesture. 
  • /wave - Causes your avatar to wave its hand.

Emotes that play indefinitely. To stop the animation, make your avatar move or do another full body animation:

  • /sit - Causes your avatar to sit down cross-legged indefinitely. 
  • /sit2 - Causes your avatar to sit seiza-style (a kneeling-style sit) indefinitely.
  • /dance - Causes your avatar to dance indefinitely unless stopped. The animation randomly plays one of the following dance animations, which can also be triggered individually:
    • /dance1 - Causes your avatar to dance indefinitely in one style. 
    • /dance2 - Causes your avatar to dance indefinitely in another style. 
    • /dance3 - Causes your avatar to dance indefinitely in another style. 
    • /dance4 - Causes your avatar to dance indefinitely in another style. 
    • /dance5 - Causes your avatar to dance indefinitely in another style.
    • /dance6 - Causes your avatar to dance indefinitely in another style.
Note: As of November 7, 2018, /dance will cycle between the animations set to all dance emote commands. /dance randomizes all the set animations even if the avatar is already performing another animation.
