What is a Zaby and How does it Work?
Zabys are private virtual housing. Every VIP in
Utherverse gets a free Zaby that they can decorate and play
with. Other people
can visit, and they will see some of your pictures, your
friends, your profile information, and they can also meet
other visitors!This way, you can really be connected to your
friends, admirers, and the rest of the community! But
you also have control.
You can decide who is allowed to visit, and who isn’t.
You can also decide who is allowed to do what. There are
many different kinds of Zabys that you can choose from, too,
depending on your tastes. You can even have more than
How to Select your Zaby
There is now a section on your Social
Center Home page that is called “Your Virtual Property”.
This section shows you all of your Zabys!
If you don’t have any Zaby yet, you can
click on the link at the bottom that says, “Click Here to
see more Virtual Properties”
From there, you will see a list of all
the Zabys that you can have. You can click to view
more details, or, you can click “Purchase” to get yourself
that Zaby (Don’t worry, you will have a chance to confirm
your purchase before you get charged anything).
Click around, and see what Zabys suit
you the best!
How to Get to Zabys
After you have Registered at least one
Zaby, you can get to your own Zaby any time by going to the
graphic at the upper right of your screen when you are in
the World. Pull down on the Arrow that gives you the
list of additional features, and select “Zaby.” You
will teleport to your Zaby.
To get to another user’s Zaby, right-click
on the user, and select “Go There (Zaby)” If you have
permission, you will be teleported to their Zaby!
Rent is always charged in Rays, and
it is charged on a weekly basis for every Zaby that you want
to have as active.
If you don’t pay your rent, you can still “keep” that Zaby
in your inventory, but you can’t decorate it or go there,
and no one else can access it, either.
How to Pay Rent
Once your free period (if any) is over,
your Zaby might have a rental cost. (Entry level Zabys
are always free for VIP users).
Rent is always charged in Rays, and it is
charged on a weekly basis for every Zaby that you wish to
keep as an active Zaby.
If you don’t pay your rent, you can still
“keep” that Zaby in your inventory, but you can’t decorate
it or go there, and no one else can access it, either.
You can pay your rent up to four weeks in
advance. You’ll know that you are overdue to pay rent
if you see a “Rent Due” notice appear on the list of Zabys
on your Home page.
To pay rent that is overdue, or to pay in
advance, simply click on the Zaby that you want to pay for,
and select “Rent Deposit.” If you have enough Rays,
then one week of rent will be paid. (Note that once
you pay rent on a Zaby, you cannot get that payment back,
even if you don’t use the Zaby).
NOTE: You can only have ONE Zaby at a
time that is your “DEFAULT” Zaby. That is the one that
you can decorate and visit, and that other users can access.
If you have more than one Zaby for which you are paying
rent, you still can have only one Zaby that is accessible at
a time. BUT YOU WILL STILL BE CHARGED RENT FOR ALL
YOUR ACTIVE ZABYS. So, if you have two Zabys, and you
pay one week of rent on both of them, in one week, rent will
be due again for BOTH OF THEM, even if you used only one
during the week.
You can deposit up to four weeks of
rent for each Zaby. That rent payment goes into a
“Lock Box.” You cannot get those Rays back from the
Lock Box, but each week, when your rent comes due, funds
will be transferred automatically from the Lox Box to pay
You can set all kinds of rules for your Zaby! Want friends
to fly? Can they get naked? Want it to be a
private pad, or a party scene? All these rules can be
set by you!!

just go to where it says, “Create New List” and enter the
Name of your new list (Like “Best Friends” or “Interior
Designers” and then you will have the ability to start
adding Usernames. This way, you can make custom lists.
So, maybe you want all of your friends to
be able to get naked, but only your “Best Friends” to be
able to fly in your Zaby. With a custom list, you can

can make a list of one person, or just a small group that
could be, for example, “Interior Designer” and you can give
permission to Decorate your Zaby!
How to Decorate your Zaby
some professional Zaby Designers in Utherverse, who will
be happy to work with you to get an awesome Zaby
customized for your tastes!
If you want to design your Zaby yourself, or even if you
want to learn to become a professional designer, you
will use the Design Tool called the “Prop Editor.”
The Prop Editor can be accessed only when you are in
your Zaby (or, in another user’s Zaby, if you have been
given permission to Decorate their Zaby). The
Prop-Editor is accessed through the graphic at the top
right of the screen when you are in the World.
(The down-arrow for additional features will list
Prop-Editor as an option. Simply select it, and
you are in Prop Edit mode).
For details on how to use the Prop Editor, we have
written a Quick Guide, and a full manual.
