PI players can open a window displaying mind module (MM) information of their
avatars by clicking the button which has a blue symbol of a human head shown in
the top left part of the picture. The window displaying MM information is
transparent, overlaid on the landscape shown in the PI client. In this screen
the MM information of the avatar Emil is displayed.
In the top left column the values of
Emil's personality trait nodes are displayed. In order to see the whole list it
is necessary to scroll down in the list using the grey marker to the right of
In the bottom left column a list of
sentiments are shown, where first the entity that the sentiment is directed
toward is named, and then the emotion of the sentiment. The numerical value to
the right of the text shows the strength of the emotion. Emil has a sentiment
of Belonging toward Neurotica, and in proximity of her the value of his emotion
node Belonging increases In PI the effect scales by proximity --- the nearer
the object, the stronger the effect. The effect increases with 0.1 multiplied
with the relative distance to the sentiment object per second.
In the middle column the values of
Emil's emotion nodes are displayed. The pink high-lighted dot next to the
emotion Distress/Anguish signals that it is clickable. If Emil's player hovers
the mouse over the dot the text 'Dull Pain' is displayed. This is Emil's first
personality based emotion spell. If the player clicks the dot the spell is cast
on a targeted entity, reducing Distress in that target.
The column to the top right shows
Emil's mood, displaying the value of the inner and outer mood nodes as well as
the mood co-ordinate system. The white dot in the mood co-ordinate system shows
which mood space Emil currently is in; jubilant. The green dots in the right of
the mood co-ordinate system are clickable spells of the type Resistance Aid,
available when Emil is in the jubilant mood space.
In the column to the lower right
effects of recent actions are displayed. Emil has performed the Affective
Action (AA) Squeeze hand on the avatar Neurotica, who has performed the same AA
on him. The number to the right tells for how long the effect of the action
persists. At the time when the screen was taken the effect of the Squeeze hand
Emil performed on Neurotica will be active for a few more seconds. The value of
the remaining AA is the remaining strength. An AA begins with the strength 1,
and decrease once per second with the decrease value specified for the AA.
