More Control for Creators: New, VRM Export Opt-Out Added

Added in response to a Canny request from community member Nikki Fuego, it is now possible for creators to opt out of having their Wearables included in a user’s avatar VRM export if they’d rather not see their creation outside of Decentraland. To opt out, just edit your Wearable’s properties as seen above.

Shoppers, don’t worry, Wearables that are not exportable will by marked as such in the Marketplace.
