Entropia Universe Genesis
From the release notes: "We now introduce Genesis. This is a small client (around 300MB) where new account holders can enter the virtual environment and learn the basics of Entropia Unvierse while the the next destination is downloaded in the background. Genesis includes a few quick tutorials and short quests aimed at newcomers. This is where CharDef (Avatar Customization) is placed now and the new account holders can also try different garments on and chat with other avatars. Note: We have increased the variation possibilities for newly created avatars' appearances. Therefore, in a coming release, we will give all current participants the opportunity to customize their avatar appearance again."
Hanne|SDS: "Genesis is a platform startroom, a sort of lounge for the newcomers to stay in while the planet of choice downloads in the background. There's chardef there, movement&camera tutorials and some simple quests. But Genesis doesn't have any profession quests or detailed tutorials like the Gateway, where you can try out Calypso's focus professions. Its one big building, you can't go outside and there's no creatures there."
Arrival at Genesis
|This video is showing Genesis and some options available there.|
|However, it is NOT recommended to follow the decisions taken in this video. You should NOT skip tutorials and you should take the time to explore all options and dialogues with NPC, complete the missions available there and customize the look of your avatar BEFORE leaving Genesis via the Teleporter. You will NOT be able to go back to Genesis and do what you have left out there.|

Please also make sure the name is not not offending against the EULA and it's not recommended to use parts of your real name.
Optional: Choose a Planet
