V20 Patch Notes (August 11th 2023)

Sadly with this update changing how past streams are saved, your past stream data before this update are wiped. Your progress is still there though (followers, viewers, subscribers).

:movie_camera: New site: MyVideos

PlayStream has made a new site where you can upload your past streams. To get access to it, you only need to be partnered on PlayStream. Boost items (Ads, PC…) do not impact the number of views/fans/likes you will get. There are 3 events that can happen when uploading your video:

  1. Controversial: Your video will have significantly more dislikes than likes, fewer views and might even lead to a loss of fans. (2% chance)
  2. Popular video: Your video is good, so it got recommended to much more people! You will get much more views, likes and fans from it. (1% chance)
  3. Extremely popular video: Your video is extremely good, and your video reaches trending #1. You can expect 200-400X more views than average. (0.003% chance)

Videos page

On the videos page, you can see the latest 3 videos, their thumbnail, title, views, likes, and dislikes.

Upload page

On the upload page, you can see your latest 10 videos, their thumbnail, title, and when it was streamed. You can click the “UPLOAD” button on the far right to upload it to MyVideos.

Monetization page

The monetization page has some useful data, like your earnings from your last video, the last 7 videos and the last 14 videos, your all-time earnings, your balance, and most importantly: RPM.
RPM stands for Revenue Per Mille. It means the amount of money you will get per 1,000 views. It ranges from $4 to $7. It is the same for the whole server and changes every 5 minutes. Red text indicates that the RPM is low, yellow indicates average, and green indicates high. On the right side you can see your balance which is ready to be withdrawn, and below it is a button to request a withdrawal.

:name_badge: Titles

In RStream, you can now enter a title! It will both be for the stream and for the video if you upload it on MyChannel.

Other QOL Changes & Fixes:

:bug: Fixed some bugs
:bug: Fixed localization UI issues
:heavy_minus_sign: Temporarily removed toilets

V19 Patch Notes (June 21st 2023)

:chart_with_upwards_trend: New Boosters!
You can get boosters by getting raided and by buying them in the shop. You can buy 2X Money, 2X Subscribers, and 2X Followers from 15 minutes to 24 hours. You can buy them for yourself, or for the whole server. The personal booster timers stop when you leave the game, and if there is a server boost your personal boost timer will stop until the server booster ends.

:dollar: Buffed Mid-Roll Ads revenue by 80%

:dollar: Changed how many viewers you lose from Mid-Roll Ads

You can create new channels on PlayStream, although costly, they are very beneficial. They do not reset your progress or anything.

:computer: New site: MyChannels

V14 Patch Notes (June 4th 2023)

:question: New Chat Questions!
Chat questions appear on your screen while streaming and give random questions. You can respond with two different options: positive or negative. Answering positively gives a 1-5% viewer bonus, while answering negatively results in a 1-5% viewer loss. After ending your stream, the viewer bonuses (or losses) reset.

:zap: New Energy Replenish Popup
Are you close to the end of the cart ride but running low on energy? Now, whenever your energy drops below 25%, a pop-up will appear offering an energy refill. It costs 29 Robux and fully replenishes your energy, allowing you to reach the end of the cart ride (or Tower of Heck) without worrying about energy!
