April was pretty solid. It seems like we’ve all learned a lot while easing into this strange new reality. Let’s stay strong and keep our heads up as always!
Here are the changes that the platform saw in April.
Updates and Changes
The Create User Ad Page got a makeover and it looks SO GOOD! You can now preview your advertisement before you upload it and the page supports multiple languages and dark theme. Check out the announcement for more details.
The Asset Manager, a replacement to the Game Explorer, is here and it’s quite a step up! Saying much more would be an injustice to the lovely announcement that nsgriff put together, so go take a look!
Non-Premium developers had a 90% marketplace fee on Dev Product and Game Pass sales. Not anymore! Now Non-Premium devs get the sweet, refreshing 30% that their Premium peers enjoy. See the announcement for more info!
FUTURE! FUTURE! What does the future hold in terms of epic new features for Roblox developers? Well, you don’t have to speculate anymore - it’s all laid out on the roadmap!
I’m awful at building on Roblox, but even I’m excited about the new tools written entirely in Lua for ease-of-customization! We can’t wait to see what you’ll make with these new-and-improved tools. The announcement has more details.
Pretty self-explanatory. You need to enter your Account PIN now, if you have one set up, if you want to transfer your group to another user. Looking forward to seeing more account security improvements!
There’s a new setting for the CollisionFidelity of MeshParts and PartOperations. See the announcement for some video demos and a whole lot more info!
We created a Play Together sort that highlights Roblox simulations of real-life activities to help bring friends, families, and classrooms together. These games are providing VIP Servers for 10 Robux. There are more details and an application link in the announcement!
Sleek. Elegant. Powerful. No, this isn’t a car advertisement - it’s a new look for the Trades page! There are some screenshots in the announcement as well as additional information.
Motor6D joints have historically been complicated, but we’ve fixed some of the inconsistent behavior issues. Hopefully, your knees should no longer be unintentionally backwards! Take a look at the announcement to learn what changed.
Smooth scrolling! Trackpad input support! Layout refinements! This is just a taste of what mrow_pizza’s announcement has in store for you, so go check it out!
We fixed a bug where StarterGear and Backpack, and the objects in them, wouldn’t properly replicate to the first Player object added to the game. Enjoy consistent behavior!
Premium Payout amounts got tripled - meaning that as of just a few days ago, your daily payouts should be 3x as big! Stonks . More details in the announcement!
TLDR: Luau was enforcing a limit of 255 locals instead of the actual limit of 200. This has been fixed. Take a look at the announcement for more info!
Some of our favorite musicians, actors, comedians, and other entertainers captivated us from their homes in the One World: Together At Home Concert Series… in a Roblox game! How did the video look on your device? Who was your favorite? Who do you wish had performed?
We’ve made it so that the Game Search will attempt to highlight the game you’re looking for. This is live on both mobile and desktop. Read the announcement to learn more!
Now you can search for audio and filter by length in the Studio Marketplace! Pretty cool, right? No more sifting through ballads looking for sound effects! Screenshots and details in the announcement.
A few quality-of-life updates for Collaborative Editing. Check out the announcement to learn what those updates are!
There’s a real tragedy hidden in these numbers. I’ll point it out.

WHOA! So much happened last month! If these are the April showers, I can’t wait for the May flowers .
How’s everyone holding up? Have you learned any cool new skills during lockdown?
Stay safe and stay healthy!
