Modifying Your Actions

You can modify your default actions when you click on icons. You do this by using the select fields and text field in the Modifier section of the display, mid-left. For example, to inspect yourself, instead of resting, when you click on yourself, select Inspect from the I Will select field and then click on yourself. When the page redisplays you will see information about yourself in the upper-left portion of the display. You can yell something by selecting Yell from the I Will field, typing whatever you want to yell in the text field and then clicking on yourself. Everyone in the area with you will hear, see text in his or her display, what you just yelled.
