Nested .rbxmx Local Plugins do not load on startup

If a .rbxmx Local Plugin is located under a folder, it will not load when opening up a place file. If you save the Local Plugin it will properly reload. All of the other possible cases outlined below work as expected.

I have included four LocalPlugins:

  • Top-level .lua script
  • Top-level .rbxmx file
  • Nested .lua script
  • Nested .rbxmx file

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Unzip (1.5 KB) into your LocalPlugin directory
  2. Open up a place file

Each of these plugins will each output a print statement saying if they have loaded.

  1. Insert LocalPluginRepo.rbxm (976 Bytes) into the place file
  2. Save Nested.rbxmx and overwrite it (located under Folder/Nested.rbxmx)
