How to register

To begin your Outerworlds subscription, simply enter Outerworlds as a tourist as you normally would, and then click on the Register Now! button in the toolbar. Fill out all of the fields in the dialog box which appears, including the information about your credit card, and press OK. Registration can sometimes take a couple of minutes, so please be patient while your charge is being processed.

When you register in this manner, you will automatically receive a free one week trial citizenship. After one week, your credit card will be charged $6.49, and again each month after that unless you cancel your subscription online at www.Outerworlds.com/html/cancel.html.

Once your registration has been accepted, you will be logged into Outerworlds as a citizen automatically.

Picking a name and password

Your citizen name and password are used by Outerworlds to determine if you are a valid citizen and to verify the ownership of the objects that you build. Your name is also what other users will see over your head when you speak, and when they select objects that you have built. When choosing a name, remember that many common names have already been taken, so you may have to be a bit creative. Important: Be sure to choose a password that is not easy to guess (example: "secret" is not a good password). A good password is at least six characters long and has both letters and numbers in it.

Never give your password to anyone! Click here for more information about the importance of password security.

Using stolen credit cards: don't bother!

If you are tempted to use a stolen credit card number to fraudulently obtain a citizenship, think again. Registrations are carefully monitored and accounts purchased with stolen cards are immediately deleted. Furthermore, your IP address and any other information will be turned over to your local authorities for criminal investigation. Finally, you will be permanently blocked from accessing Outerworlds. So as a result, not only will you not be a citizen, you will never be able to access Outerworlds again, not even as a tourist. So don't do it!
