Utherverse Wiki

Controls are inputs via your keyboard or mouse that make your avatar move or perform an action. While this page purely discusses the default controls, you can Customize Controls in the Game Settings. Some of the controls on this page can also be activated via the Quickbar which is part of the overall User Interface. Furthermore it is possible to chat with others users and even use the Chat panel to input Commands that also control you Avatars actions.

Movement with special conditions[]

Some of the following types of movement need special settings to be configured.
