From release 14.9 it is possible to take the role of a ferocious creature or robot and start hunting other avatars! This is a new kind of Fun!

To consume the capsule locate the capsule icon in your inventory (open the inventory by using the "I" key (default) and look in the Materials section), right click the icon and select "Consume". Your Avatar will now swallow the capsule and transform into the creature.
Transforming into a creature requires some space around your Avatar. Capsules may also be tied to specific planets and not work on your current location. Pay attention to the Main chat window for any error messages as it will help in resolving problems.
