Creating an agent
Creating your first agent (or Character) is very easy and this guide is designed to help walk you through the process.
The choices you make during the agent creation process will give you a headstart in your chosen career path but don't worry if you change your mind on what you want to do. If you do want to change your area of expertise it's best to not delete your agent as deleting an agent will cost you Extension Points. It's a much better idea to simply change what your agent learns to suit what you want to do rather than starting over.
You start the character creation process by designing what your agent will look like and then either choose your prefer style of game-play or choose a more advanced character creator to fine tune your agent.
Creating the appearance of your agent
Here is where the portrait of your agent is created. Once created, this picture is permanent and will be your avatar when communicating with others. After selecting a preset design there are a variety of ways you can modify your agent’s appearance using the bars around the portrait. You can also rotate the camera with the mouse by holding the right mouse button or move the eyes by holding the left mouse button.
Choosing your starter career
You can either choose to use a preset character design for your agent which will mean you start with all the basic extensions needed to begin your chosen path or you can choose to use the advanced character creation system for a more unique style of play.
