Creating your own private view of the world-- background here.

A selection of heads-up displays that enhance avatar expressiveness and control:

Part of a larger pony avatar package, the ExtroVirtual Pony HUD by Noramyr Gullwing, Psyra Extraordinaire, and Forseti Svarog, adds an interface of pony-like movement to your AV, from neighing to shaking your maned head "Yes" to counting with your front hoof.

Enhancing the emotions of humanoid avatars, Aliasi Stonebender's Face Anim HUD version 3.1 gives you instant access to eighteen facial expressions, letting you respond to the world at the click of a mouse-- grimace at a tacky dress, go wide-eyed at surprising news, or respond with a random expression, just to keep people on their toes.

YadNi Monde's EmoterHUD is an interface with nineteen facial expressions that can also be blended together, for emotes that can be subtle as a sheepish smile, or extraordinary, going into rubber-faced contortions that would make Jim Carrey jealous.

Ziggy's HUD Animation Overrider, from Ziggy Puff, lets you enhance and modify Linden Lab's default avatar movements with a menu of user-selected, user-loaded animations, letting you turn your walking and sitting into a choreographed performance.

Tomorrow: Gaming HUDs.

Thanks for mentioning my HUD AO. The only thing I'd like to add is that the ZHAO is free and open-source, and would not have been possible without Francis Chung's Franimation script (used in the WetIkon AO). So I think she deserves a mention here as well :)

ACK! I just was catching up on my NWN after a few weeks of insanity and I saw this. The pony HUD was made by Wynx Whiplash. Noramyr, Psyra, and I are also in ExtroVirtual with Wynx, but that genius pony was her wonderful creation.

Love the action that second life can provide, I watched other games of the same type, and so far this one is the best there is.
