Featuring early adopters of Roblox technology

Hey, great question!

I’m happy to say that we are not replacing or changing the normal Featuring program at all.
We had to merge the two Featuring Programs (New Avatar Experience & Featuring Program) together as there wasn’t enough time to roll out a new Sort before the Holiday, which was our original plan.

Hopefully, by early January 2019 you can expect to see a new Sort specifically for the Rthro games, we also hope to expand this sort to feature all sorts of games using new Roblox technology.

Unfortunately it wouldn’t quality, you will need to change the body type to 70% or higher for the duration of the featuring period.

Not at all! The normal Featuring program is staying the same.

In that case this program is just expanding the range of opportunities for developers - which is awesome! Thank you for the clarification.

Is the exclusive hat given to everyone who had a major development contribution to the early games, or just the owners of those games? Have had a handful of games I’ve worked on as a modeler, but I can’t really join in on this as an owner of my own place.

Interesting way to go about promoting RThro by the way! If there is one thing I have to ask regarding nomination, it’s whether that Player Choice Disabled requirement is only for the duration of the nomination, or for the game’s lifetime onward. Would seem a bit restricting to keep it locked down when the purpose is to simply encourage devs into trying it out to see if it works well for their game.

Not just the owner gets the hat, anyone who plays a major role in the development does

Everyone in the development team of the game will be receiving the hat. (As long as they made contributions to the game)

The game will only need to have those requirements turned on for the duration it is on the Featured Sort. So once the game comes off the Sort, you are welcome to change the settings back to your desire.

I think this is good for the developer community. Not only does it make people want to add Rthro support to their game, but it also makes people who aren’t a developer want to be a developer.

Does player choice have to be disabled?

Rtho is cool but forcing it on players wouldn’t match the style of my game.

Yes, it is a requirement to have player choice disabled.

A great opportunity for young developers to get their game marketed for free, also they are helping ROBLOX. This is a good update, ROBLOX!

I think that this is a good idea, so that Rthro can expand into use in more games. Overtime we are seeing better and better use and better creation of Rthro avatars and I’m excited to see what the future has in store!

Really excited about this! Sadly player choice disabled, but I can’t wait for new and new games using it to pop up.

sorry for accidentally replying to your post, Hydrablox.

Sounds great! About when will we get this item if we follow all the steps required? Also can we do this for a very small game around 300K?

As long as you meet the requirements. Back in Feb. when we got on we only had around 60,000 at the time.

This is a great way to award and showcase users creations for advertising the new Rthro rig! Speaking of which, I just updated my game that’s in Alpha at the start of the year to support the new Rthro rigs.

I also updated the game icon with the Rthro game label as well.

Hey! I was wondering if there was going to be a set of “Featured Games” utilizing and adopting this new Roblox Technology called ViewportFrames, like what happened with the RTHRO featured sort. I have a upcoming game which heavily utilizes ViewportFrame and think a featured sort on this could replace the current RTHRO sort.
