The BCDs are Existing in 2 sizes (S)mall or (L)arge, modifiable.

BCDs are attached on the chest. The Commands are attached on the ATH, bottom Left of the screen, with 2 working buttons like in Real Life + 1 Virtual Button. You'll find also a "Swim Speed Regulator", when you wear the BCD, the horizontal swim speed is set to SL™ , buy you can select RL, to slow it, like in Real Life. You can also set it to FAST...

It is your BCD that makes you go UP and Down in water, like in RL. Just use the Buttons on the inflator or PgUp / PgDown on your Keyboard to choose your buyoancy. Like in RL, there is a little delay between the command and the reaction, so be patient when you use it, but take care, when the ascent is starting, you will go faster and faster if you are in SIMULATION mode :


There is also a "virtual" button "A" (green, for -A-uto) or "S" (red, for -S-imulation). In (S)imulation mode, BCD works like in RL, for example : you have to inflate to go up, and to stop ascent, you have to purge. in (A)uto mode when you inflate, the ascent stops when you release the button (many divers would like it in RL ....).


You will also find a small round ICON for the FINS Animations state :

When buying your BCD, you'll find 2 different ones in your invenrory : Small and Large. Just use the one that fit the best on your avatar.

BCDs are Modifiable, that means you can stretch them (bigger, NOT smaller) to adjust them regarding your avatar's chest. If you wear the Large BCD and it looks too big, just wear the Small One, and stretch it and adjust it on you body.

If you need to reduce your "Small BCD" size, you can edit separatly each part (Edit/Edit Linked parts), but DONT FORGET to make a COPY before Modify, no refund in case of problem.
