So, I was at the Trade Hangout by Merely the other day, and I asked myself a question.
How did Merely add romolions and R.A.P of Limited items into his game? Is there some sort of in-game link to romolions.com? What could he have possibly done this? Please comment with your thoughts on how YOU think he did it.
Most likely Trade Hangout used some sort of HTTP request to either
an API set up by Rolimons or the Rolimon’s site itself for requests.
It’s possible that this was also a collaboration of some sort between
the game developer and the Rolimons community.
No matter how it was done, it used an HTTP request to somewhere.
Why exactly wouldn’t it be allowed? I’m not sure what the system is/how it was made as I haven’t visited Trade Hangout for quite a while now. Even so, if they are using some kind of API (i.e Rolimons), how would this be against the TOS?
To answer your original question, they are probably either querying the Roblox catalog API or Rolimons (if Rolimons even has one).
I would think it to be not allowed, because the game incorporates out of game websites, that could be linked to inappropriate websites, even if in Merely’s case it was not used for something lie this, some people might consider using in game links to websites in a bad way.
