This is quite exciting:

The second one is quite intriguing as it allows for us to easily create rain that isn’t sideways and parallel to the ground, I mean that would just be silly. The last two seem amazing to fiddle around with when the time comes, as I can’t really visualize what that may look like, but it seems as if it may allow for realistic motion effects.

Also, this seems like a really cool functionality, but I’m not exactly sure what LocalUserSecurity indicates as I haven’t seen it with other classes before. A part of me believes it’s only for Roblox to use, but then again it doesn’t have RobloxScriptSecurity either…

Edit: nevermind, it’s the command bar I believe.

Oh man, that’s the longest event name I’ve seen yet!

I think for now, I’ll stick with the joy of the particle emitter features (which I’m quite intrigued by)!


What is IXPService and IXPLoadingStatus? I am aware of what IXP is in programming and software engineering, however, the implementation to the Roblox engine is rather questioning, perhaps a response on what this will do, helpful for engineers or developers?

Anyway, I like that ParticleOrientation is out for this release, and some other functions and classes added to the engine.


If you wanna see what the new Particle Orientation does @CloneTrooper1019 made a pretty cool Twitter post a while back showcasing the new feature
