Self Generating Obby

What is this?

So a couple of weeks ago I made a self-generating obby system, "Not a self-generating stage system". I posted it on Twitter and got positive comments. I love to help people when I can, and I love it when people help me. I have now tested this publicly in 1.5 weeks and it works as it should.

Why did I make this?

Back in "2016, 2017, 2018" I spent hundreds of hours making obbies by hand. When I made this system I thought about how many hours of my life I could’ve saved by making it automated. Now that I have an ok understanding in scripting I decided to make this. It works and is uploaded in a place for anyone to take.

What is included in the system?

  • Marketplace System, for gamepasses & devproducts. (Tools, Skip Stage)
  • Chat Tag System. (Custom tag for players that are in the “Developers” table)
  • Sound System with noises for different types of events. (Death, Purchase, UI Click &, etc)
  • Checkpoint System.
  • No Player Collision System.
  • Badge Awarding System.
  • Custom Loading Screen.
  • And some more useful systems on the client.

How to use:

It should be alright to use if you have decent knowledge in LUA. It is also important to be structured due to the color customization of this system and generation or else the system will warn you and not work.

Where to change stage colors?:
“ServerScriptService > Server > Obby” and the name of the variables are RandomColorOne and RandomColorTwo.

Where to change stage amount?:
“ServerScriptService > Server > Settings > Stages” and then change the value to how many stages you want.

Where to add new stages and how to define lava parts?:
“ServerStorage > Stages > All” and that is where the stages should be located. You also have to make sure that every stage has the part under the checkpoint as PrimaryPart.

The last stage is called Finish and it is under “ServerStorage > Stages”

Lava parts must be placed inside a Lava folder inside the model. The parts of the obby also have to be structured in the folder “One” and “Two” under “Colored”. You’ll understand if you take a look at the stages in Workspace.

What is Turnpoint?:
“ServerScriptService > Server > Settings > Turnpoint” is an IntValue I made that will eventually turn the stages, so it doesn’t always go in a straight line. If your obby goes in a straight line, then I’d recommend to change it up a bit. A value between 1 to 25 should mostly be fine.

Do you have to give credit?

Short answer, no. I would recommend changing the settings frame because I and my friend are credited. There is no need to credit us! You can also feel free to use the GFX that I bought for this!

I had to cover a lot in this and let me know if there is something I forgot to say! Use this as you wish and good luck with your obby! :star:

Definitely another good learning point for me.

Very cool! Definitely deserves to be a popular obby.

Me: Laughs evilly and makes one hundred Obbies a day with this tool with titles like Escape Piggy Obby [FLAMINGO VISITED].

In all seriousness though, cool resource!

This is super cool. One of the amazing things you can do with scripting.

Hey, this idea is very unique. This is very off topic, but how did you make it so your indents have arrows in it? I would like to add this into my studio too!

I’m not on my computer at the moment, but that should be it.

Very helpful generation code you made!
I’ve never made an obby before but i’m sure that this generation system will be very helpful for obby developers, since it takes a lot of time building a obby map with 100, 200, 500+ stages.
I will definitely try this system out!

Anyways thanks for sharing this!
Sincerely
Veinsson.

Good, now script kiddies can get thousands of robux without 0 effort, Thank you very much!!

I mean no offense but you just gave us every tool to make an successful obby, I mean just someone has to adversite the game and add gamepasses also obbies then boom they have made game that gets players easily, I mean yes making obbies takes a effort but what about, checkpoints? chat tags? skip system? sound system? and more? you basically gave us everything. i love the work but i still dont like the way that people can make robux easily from this. It should take some effort, some time

That is true, but it can be used for good. That is because if someone uses this, and if the obby becomes somewhat successful. It may motivate the person to make more games in general and potentially work on other types of games that aren’t obbies.

Yeah, I recevied the movitation by a obby game of mine but the thing is i didnt use a framework like this, i coded them all at my own.

I only like source code from older games i can revamp, things that show me how to do things, or this, where I can redo a ton of building, and have fun

Hey, am I allowed to use portions of this?

Thanks!

You are allowed to use everything. :100:

Awesome, thanks for making your creation open source, it’s a great way for others to learn from your work and overall improves the community as a whole. :+1:t2:
