A developer module is an asset that can be added to any Roblox place directly from Studio. Today, we’re releasing the friends locator, in-experience profile, spawn with friends, emote bar, and photobooth modules.
These all let your players instantly find and play with their friends, better express themselves in experiences, easily meet others and make friends, and snap a photo of themselves in your experience.
All these modules were published in Roblox’s models library. You can find the direct links to each module above or search for them in the Library. From these pages, you can add them to your inventory in order to conveniently find them in the “My Inventory” section of Studio’s Toolbox panel.
Just like any other asset from the Studio Marketplace, you can one-click insert or drag and drop them into your 3D Workspace. After that, run the experience and the Dev Module will distribute itself to various services and start itself up.
Each Dev Module is designed to work out of the box, so the moment you press play it will just work. If this isn’t your style, as the developer you have full control over the Dev Module and how it works. Advanced users can configure each module in many different ways. Please refer to their documentation to know more!
This page will always be updated with the latest information. You can learn more about each module below –
- Friends Locator: Easily spot your friends in the community space and warp to them.
- In-Experience Profile: Craft your identity directly within an experience.
- Spawn with Friends: Join an experience and spawn next to your friends.
- Emote Bar: Express yourself and have impromptu dance parties.
- Photobooth: Strike a pose and take a photo with a unique background.
We’re just getting started! We know you’ll use these modules in different ways across your unique experiences. As you build, we’re working towards our next milestone of releasing the next batch of social features, so stay tuned!
