Glad to see this minor bugfix got through! I had actually disabled the Beta feature because of this bug, now I can turn it back on.

Great update, we finally have access to atmospheres!

There’s just so much potential with this, and I can’t wait for the community to start making some awesome builds and scenery.

Also great to see that adding one enum item:

Added EnumItem StudioStyleGuideColor.ScriptWhitespace : 56

Caused one of the longest chain of changes I’ve seen in a while:

Seems like this update added a lot of unnecessary glare on beams and other reflective items in my game. Completely ruins the aesthetic that my game has had for months. Is this intended?

Before the update, these weren’t nearly as bright

On the beams, light emission and light influence are both 0.

Does this function mean we will be able to stream certain areas of our games manually or is this meant to be limited to CoreScripts? :thinking:
Added Function void Player:RequestStreamAroundAsync(Vector3 position, double timeOut = 0) [Yields]

See the bug report here: Beam & Trail Rendering Issue

I believe this may be related to the Pre-Streaming API that is targeted for release this quarter. It seems unlikely developers will ever have access to forcefully stream areas as networking streaming is meant to be completely handled by the engine.

I have a pretty good feeling this enum is generated at runtime from the Theme.json files found in Roblox Studio’s Qt resources:

If an engineer inserts a new value into the middle of these files, it results in the large value shift observed in the API diff.

It seems to be that way, however it appears that said API is going to available to developers (Aka, the API is meant for developers to make that hint rather than the engine attempting to predict it?). If the function is intended to have any security level its not currently marked as such.

Underwater fog seems to have changed perhaps unintentionally?

I’ve been asking for a long time to be able to edit properties of underwater fog similar to Lighting fog so players can see further under water instead of just having a colour and a broken transparency value that doesn’t make much sense.

Now we can’t see as far underwater as before, and water has become grey & ‘murky’ which a lot of my SharkBite community don’t seem to like.

Same position & angle before update:

After:

Underwater fog also seems to have no effect on the visibility of ropes now either:

Can water be put back to how it was? Or ideally some sort of water fog properties be added to Atmosphere so we can change this ourselves.

The API will definitely be open to all developers.

From the way I understand the description on the roadmap, it will allow for developers to “hint” to the engine of what areas to load. But, developers shouldn’t necessarily rely on the area being forecfully loaded as it may not be possible due to the client’s resource limitations.
