Looking Forward in 2020: This Year's Developer Roadmap

It’d be nice to know what this is, cause you can’t do such a thing through features and graphical improvements alone

Any hints of any of these features would be really good to hear:

  • Enhanced group features, like group specific forums
  • More broadly accessible forums in general (maybe a group hub)
    and not dev forums either. Something that has distinct “roblox culture”
  • Removing restrictions on chat (##### ## ######) based on player age/ opting out
  • Catered games pages to different audiences
  • Easing access on getting into developing; barriers to entry seems to be that ALL players are concentrated on front page games, ads no longer grant enough exposure to get ball rolling. Plenty entry level “toys” like free models to rip/ edit scripts from are kind of hidden compared to when most devs started
  • Voice chat

There’s going to be changes to moderation to allow older-oriented games to be moderated more loosely, but thats about all I know.

Why would roblox need voice chat? You can just Voice Chat via Discord.

Floating point strikes again!

I completely agree. Personally in my projects I require a great magnitude of distance from origin and have found no real way around floating point. Its either I condense a map or have the camera continuously locked around the origin, both harming the impact on a player. Physics Grids would solve these visual and calculation errors.

This is the Developer Facing Roadmap and does not cover the plethora of projects that are being worked on by other parts of the company. :slightly_smiling_face:

For me, the Voice chatNever!
It would be impossible to moderation to work with. It will make more issues to moderation and will be an offensive tool to players.

What about the countless games voice chat exists in already?
Is it because Roblox’s audience is too young? I think it goes without saying this feature would be gated to people 13+
Are there just not enough 13+ users to justify it?

AHHH! I love when the Roadmap comes out because it’s fun to see all the new stuff that gets added!

Voice chat is sure a potential idea, but it could cause some problems like using “bad or offensive words” or annoying others with it, or even saying a personal info like password for example.

Perhaps they could make it for like 15+ aged people.

Probably, and they should mute it for the <15.

True, and it will very bad if Roblox release it earlier due to bugs and issues.
The more time it takes before the release, the more bugs and issues will be fixed and found by the testers. So hope you guys be patient and hope its gonna be Great, Stay safe all.

@nsgriff what does Faster CSG mean? Less RAM ussage? faster loading speed? both? I have issues with not enough RAM and also 1-3 hours loading time. I hope it solves both.
