  • Use the asset for personal use and projects, modify and edit it as you see fit.
  • Stream/make video content with the asset, credit is not needed, but greatly appreciated.
  • Make public avatars with the asset.
  • Commission/take commissions for putting the asset on an avatar (provided BOTH parties own the asset)
  • Use it for a commercial avatar IF you set it up and export without the assets files (you have to delete the folder), then direct your customers to the exact page to buy it. You are under no circumstances allowed to include the files for the asset in your own export. Your store page must be pretty clear about that to avoid confusion as well.


  • Share any of the files to anyone who does not own the asset.
  • Include the files on a purchasable/free avatar.
  • Complain that the asset broke your project, I always recommend you make backups before importing new things.
  • Use this on a quest only avatar, the asset is NOT QUEST COMPATIBLE, please DO NOT buy this if you do not have a pc.
