Should the sample marketplace avatar be updated?


This proposal suggests updating the upper body of the marketplace avatar to ensure compatibility with the new Handwear category.


The current marketplace avatar, visible when not logged in, does not reflect recent updates to include a Handwear category. This omission results in visual distortions in the Handwear area. The proposed update aims to rectify this by adapting the avatar’s upper body for seamless integration with Handwear items, enhancing user experience and marketplace consistency.

The introduction of the Handwear category in Decentraland’s marketplace represents a significant step forward in avatar customization. However, the existing sample marketplace avatar, which is displayed to users who are not logged in, has not been updated to accommodate this new category. This oversight leads to a notable distortion in the Handwear area, negatively impacting the user’s experience and potentially hindering the accurate representation of Handwear items. Updating the avatar’s upper body is essential to maintain visual integrity, ensure a consistent user experience, and fully showcase the capabilities of the new Handwear category.


The proposed update involves redesigning the upper body of the sample marketplace avatar to align with the dimensions and specifications of the Handwear category.


Updating the marketplace avatar’s upper body is a necessary step to align with the advancements in Decentraland’s avatar customization options. By addressing the current visual distortion in the Handwear category, this proposal aims to enhance the overall user experience, ensure consistency across the marketplace, and showcase the full potential of avatar customization in Decentraland.
