As part of our ongoing effort to modernize the design and improve the functionality of the in-game UI, we are excited to introduce a NEW topbar for PC, Mac and all mobile devices! This topbar is more lightweight than the existing one, so the visuals of your game can shine through! To save space, we moved most of the icons to a new Game Context Menu on the right side. As you can see below, when you open this Menu, you’ll have access to the Leaderboard / Player List, Emotes and Backpack / Inventory. The shortcut keys are also listed so your players can learn how to directly access these features, if they are enabled in your game.
The new Topbar should have little to no impact on your game’s UI. The Topbar area is still 36 pixels tall as it was before, but it is worth checking when it goes live in case you included any UI elements inside the Topbar space and need to make any adjustments.
Here is what the new Topbar looks like:
PlayerGui:SetTopbarTransparency will no longer change the transparency of the Topbar and this function will be deprecated.
This change should be shipped late March or early April. Please let us know if you have any questions or feedback.
