I admit it. I giggle when I see a noob running. I’m not sure why; I guess I’m just easily amused. (I also think Benny Hill music should be required for all running noobs, especially naked ones.)
Actually, it may surprise some people to hear this, but running isn’t just for noobs. No really. Running is useful sometimes, like when you want to get somewhere quick but flying is disabled and you can’t double-click teleport because doing so takes you right back to some silly landing point.
HOW TO RUN: Double click the up arrow ⬆️.
HOW TO ALWAYS RUN: Not that you want to do this (noob, cough) but you can by clicking Ctrl + R
HOW TO STOP: If you’re running because you double-clicked the arrow all you need to do is stop. When you move again, you’ll be walking, not running.
If you’re running because you used Ctrl + R then you need to toggle that to stop.
If you’re like me and make typos inworld it’s possible to cause yourself to “always run” by accident when you’re trying to rebake your avatar. A rebake is Ctrl+Alt+R so if you miss pressing ALT you may find yourself running instead of rebaking!
SUGGESTION: If you do decide to run, please make the running animation as ridiculous as possible.
