The most up-to-date Public Deco Guidelines can always be found here:

Door licensees are not required to decorate their door/storefront. You can update your door image from the Social Center to change how it looks without requesting permission:

  1. Log into your Social Center at or
  2. Then navigate to the following tabs: Property > Doors > Licensed Doors
  3. From here, find the door you want to edit and click Manage
  4. From there you can edit the door's texture, as well as toggle automatic renewal on or off

You or the decorator of your choice can decorate your storefront as long as you:

  • Receive the necessary permissions from the Business Team
  • Follow the Public Deco Guidelines
  • Maintain payment of the door license

To request deco permissions the door licensee must open a ticket with Business as the help topic, and include the following information:

  • The door name (“Street 044”, “GT 019”)
  • The username or member ID of the decorator to grant deco permissions to, if you are not decorating it yourself

To publish your changes you must request approval from Business Support. Replying to your original door-related ticket is the easiest way, or you can open a new ticket and include your door name. 

  1. All deco work will be inspected by staff before publishing to the live region. 
  2. If your work is not approved, you will be contacted so you can make the necessary changes. 

Please allow two full business days for the approval process, though we’ll try to be faster than that

Deco permissions are granted on a limited-time basis. Once your work is approved and published, your deco permissions for that region will be removed. Deco rights are removed after one week if no approval request has been made. If you require extra time contact us, otherwise any recent deco may be considered abandoned and be removed

If your door license lapses your deco will be removed. Please ensure that you do not accidentally cancel the ‘auto-renew’ option if you want to continue your door license.


If you do not abide by the guidelines below you may be banned from decorating public regions. If the violation is severe, or if you violate the guidelines repeatedly, further appropriate action against your account will be considered without refund. This may include removal of roles and listings, and/or temporary or permanent account bans.

Deco Area & Existing Props

  • Deco work must be confined to the door area that you have been given permission to edit. 
    • Do not extend forward into the street, sideways into other storefront spaces, or up past what can be reasonably be expected of the storefront’s height. 
    • Props should be touching the existing storefront area. 
  • Deleting, covering, altering, moving or cloning of existing props is forbidden. 
    • Cloning your own props is fine, but please do not clone existing RLC props or other members’ props as they sometimes include hidden scripts which can cause lag. 
    • If you see that another member’s door deco is broken or in violation of the guidelines, open a business support ticket to let us know

Signage & Design

  • All images/textures must be appropriately sized and placed. 
    • File sizes should be the minimum possible that will display correctly
    • Image dimensions should be powers of two, when possible, such as 128, 256, 512, 1024, etc.
    • Signs should be placed an appropriate distance from any walls or props behind them to avoid a blinking effect when viewed from a distance
  • Signage and designs must convey a professional look at all times. Keep all designs streamlined and tidy. Décor should be properly representative of the business that is featured at that store front
  • Design work must be consistent with the look and feel of the street. Do not completely cover the existing surface of the building. Some of the building face should be visible at street level
  • No hardcore, trademarked, copyright protected or offensive material is permitted. Absolutely no adult content in non-adult regions

Scripts, Clicks, and Lag

  • No web browsers, animation states, animated textures, bots, emitters, ‘Fade’, or any other scripts that are known for causing lag. Please make sure you know what scripts can cause lag, and use the Measure Props tool to double check your work.
  • Keep necessary but potentially laggy scripts and states to a minimum. Use collision and transparency only as-needed. 
  • When you clone props, check for and remove any unnecessary states and scripts. This is one of the biggest culprits for creating props with extra, unneeded scripts and states attached.
  • Use the minimum number of props needed. If you can achieve the same or a similar look with fewer props, please do. 
  • Use the appropriate props for the scripts you are using. Do not use chimes for images. Some props will repeat textures for you so you don’t have to use multiple props to do so.
  • Hardcoded website links, VWW URLs or any other porting scripts or plugins are strictly forbidden. Door licensees may have as much clickable signage as they like in their own region, but their public storefront should be free of clicking hazards.
  • No trackers in public areas or managed venues. Tracking and/or displaying member data in UV-owned areas and venues is strictly prohibited.
  • As mentioned above, image sizes should be powers of two, when possible, such as 128, 256, 512, 1024, etc.
  • Images/textures should be set to cache 'forever' when possible. This allows the image file to be stored locally, so people don't have to re-load it every time they enter the area.
