As a Roblox developer, it is currently too hard to have my Roblox profile picture the way I want it.
I thought of sending this for a while, and I sat with it written, so I just decided to make the topic.
This is a fairly simple cosmetic change that I feel like a lot of people will disagree with, but I still feel like it would be helpful.
In late 2020-early 2021, Profile pictures started looking straight. They have looked at a slight angle since the start of Roblox, and now they just look straight, which looks bad.
I will place a poll here just to see what people think.
- Straight ahead (new)
- Tilted angle (legacy)
- A Slider to change the angle we look at
- Let us choose with an option
My response: (sent through DM to Abc)
I feel like that would be good
---i forget the exact name of the function game.Players:GetUserThumbnailAsync(game.Players.DarkPixlz, Enum.ThumbnailSize.999x999, Enum.ThumbnailType.Bust, Enum.ThumbnailDirection.Legacy --[[Legacy (tilited), Forward (new), UserChoice, or a direct angle in degrees, returns an error if impossible]])
As there’s no way to keep everybody happy, I think there should be an option.
One lets you rotate it (like it used to be), and the other would let you look straight ahead.
I feel like this is probably going to receive a lot of “noooo!” messages, so I’m trying this out. If you think this shouldn’t happen and you have good reasoning, then please DM me
Either that or we have a slider to change the direction that our character look at, as unlikely that it would be, it would be cool. I think that this has the highest probability of keeping everybody happy
If Roblox is able to address this issue, it would improve my development experience because we would all have a sense of customization to our profile pictures.
