As a Roblox developer, it is currently too hard to fork the player list and new bubble chat in order to make changes to its functionality.
If Roblox is able to address this issue, it would improve my development experience because I’ll be able to make further customizations to these features without entirely remaking my own version. There are no provided customization options for the player list, and in terms of the new bubble chat you can only make certain customizations globally (for all players)
Why is this an issue? One of the things I loved to implement was the ability to have a custom chat bubble color for users with a certain Game Pass. Well, I can’t do this anymore, which reduces the amount of Game Pass features I can offer to players. As I’m unable to alter the player list easily, I’ll be unable to fully disable the use of Display Names within my games unless I make an entirely new player list - which I don’t want to do as I love the design of the current player list. It also stops me from adding other customizations to the player list, such as updating the colors, updating the positions, and potentially having unique features on the player list such as an icon for players with a certain Game Pass.
As a Roblox developer, I should have easy control over the functionality and design of core systems in my game such as the bubble chat and player list. Why limit us?
