We are making some changes to how you manage places within your game. Specifically, we are not allowing Devs to remove the start place of a game. Please follow the instructions below if you are affected:
To update the contents of the start place:
- Open the place you want to publish as the start place in Studio
- File > Publish to Roblox As…
- Select the start place
To add a new place to a game:
- Open the game in Studio
- In the Game Explorer, right-click on Places and select “Add New Place”
Why are these changes being made?
We’re always working to make your development experience smoother. One of the issues we’ve consistently noticed is that there is a lot of confusion between places and games. Games are essentially projects, which can contain one or more levels (places). Much of the confusion stems from settings being incorrectly tied to places, and not to games. To start remedying this, we need to make the following changes:
- Removing the ability to switch the start place in a game. You will still be able to update the contents of the start place using File > Publish to Roblox As… from Studio.
- Creating a start place for every game which doesn’t have one.
Making these changes will enable us to start migrating place settings to games. This means you will spend less time hunting for settings and more time developing.
Some settings will remain on places forever because that’s where they belong, e.g. maximum player count.
Please let us know if you have any questions about this update.
