Game Development Resources [MEGA THREAD]

#1

Greetings fellow Game Developers, today I want to share with you my favorite Youtube Channels that helped me significantly with Game Development not just Roblox but Games in general, these Channels helped me understand what makes a “Great” Game and helps with making that Game Dev process a lot easier, I would also like to share some Plugins that helps make my life a lot easier and also some DevForum Threads!

This is most likely to benefit New Developers but I believe that even the Masters themselves are still learning something new everyday.

I would also like to note that I’m a Scripter so most of this stuff is gonna be useful to "Scripters"

Plugins

Hope you find this Thread helpful. :grin:

Very important Tip;
If you don’t want to loose your work you MUST Always save your game Offline before Play Testing and Publishing, Roblox Studio will Crash or not Respond very often so DO NOT Trust Roblox!

As I gave the Titile “[MEGA THREAD]”, I do plan on adding more stuff to this.

If you have any Suggestions or something I should Add and/or Change please let me know, I want this thread to be as perfect as it can be.

I decided to make this thread because I told myself I want to do something useful today so I acted.

Rate this based on how useful you think it is! (Yes, I stole this from TechSpectrum)

Made a small module with some functions to help speed up coding.

Module: https://www.roblox.com/library/2788461122/Expedite-Loader
Source: https://www.roblox.com/library/2788452873/Expedite

Usage so far:

Changes the selected property on MouseEnter and changes it back automatically on MouseLeave

Expedite.ChangePropertyOnHover(Object, "Property", NewValue)

Make’s the UI draggable

Expedite.SetDraggable(Object)
