The Image Designer mini-publish in May of 2004 gave Image Designers (IDs) the new ability to grant holo-emotes to themselves and their customers. Whereas traditional emotes caused avatars to perform certain animations, holo-emotes involve special graphical effects independent of the avatar's movements. All holo-emotes are visual effects only; they do not produce sounds.|
You can request holo-emotes from IDs with skills in the hairstyling tree. IDs are granted more holo-emotes as they level up this tree. To the left are the in-game instructions for using holo-emotes. Simply type /holo help to access these instructions. Holo-emotes have different durations, refered to as Low (10-15 seconds) and High (20+ seconds) below. There is a 30-second timer between starting one holo-emote and the next.
Thanks to Caeris on Test Center for modelling the holo-emotes.
