Using the Orbs
The Orbs are intended to be used while the App is inactive, although while signed in, you can use them with a user avatar by right-clicking and selecting “Sit Here” from the context menu.
When signed out of the App, you can use an Orb by left-clicking it, or you can make an NPC use it by right-clicking and selecting “Touch” from the context menu. See the guide to using NPCs for more information.
