We are thrilled to announce a massive upgrade to our Packages system. Packages are units of reusable content that can be seamlessly used and upgraded across Places.
This release introduces a number of changes and improvements to how packages work. The largest change is how we treat modified package instances.
You can now publish Places with modified package instances.
We will warn you when we detect a package modification happens to confirm intent.
Modifying a package instance will disable
AutoUpdate, one of the key features to keep things up to date.
We envision a future where most content on Roblox is Packages and will continue investing and building towards this vision.
Completely changed how we detect package modifications into a much more reliable mechanism. There should be no more cases of Packages being modified without user action.
Modified the behavior of nested packages so that a modification to a nested package will propagate the change status to its parent. This makes nested package behavior consistent and predictable.
Enabled more customization of Package instances - Name can now be edited without causing the Package to be modified.
For more information, please visit our documentation site.
We look forward to seeing you all try this out and build some really cool Experiences with Packages.
