The Basic Info tab contains options for general game settings, the game icon, screenshots/videos, supported devices, etc.

Permissions

The Permissions tab lets you control the game audience as well as the game owner and its collaborators.

Setting Description
Playability Sets which players can access/play the game on Roblox.
Game Owner Lets you set the game access levels as follows:
  • For a single-owner game, the owner has full access, so this option cannot be changed.
  • For a articles/Group Games|group game, you can set a unique access level (No Access, Play, or Edit) for each user role within the group.
Collaborators Lets you find and add Roblox users as game collaborators and assign them an access level:
  • Play — The collaborator can only playtest the game.
  • Edit — The collaborator can play and edit the game.
  • Manage — The collaborator can play, edit, modify game-level assets, and make changes to game settings.

Avatar

The Avatar tab offers several settings for player avatars, including the ability to restrict certain avatar aspects to your specifications.

Setting Description
Presets Sets the options lower in the window to various presets, which can then be adjusted individually.
Avatar Type Morph to Articles/r6 vs r15 avatars|R6, Articles/r6 vs r15 avatars|R15, or let players decide.
Animation Use default avatar animations or let players use custom animations. See the articles/using animations in games|Using Animations in Games article for more info.
Collision Use fixed size collision boxes or dynamic size collision boxes.
Scale Sets the proportions for various aspects of player avatars. Drag the slider handles to the extreme end (both left and right) to allow avatars to morph to each player's chosen settings on Roblox, or narrow the range to enforce a more specific scale for all avatars.
Body Parts Allows you to force specific body parts upon all players by asset ID, or let them keep their own avatar parts.
Clothing Allows you to force specific clothing upon all players by asset ID, or let them keep their own avatar clothing.

Options

The Options tab includes game settings which are typically reserved for special situations.

Setting Description
Allow HTTP Requests Allow game servers to issue requests to remote servers via HttpService.
Enable Studio Access to API Services Lets Studio access API services, useful for testing implementation of services like articles/Data store|Data Stores.

World

The World tab includes global game settings like gravity, character jump behavior and walk speed, etc.

Setting Description
Presets Sets the options lower in the window to various presets, which can then be adjusted individually.
Gravity Sets the overall world gravity in studs/second² (note the meters/second² equivalent in parentheses).
Jump Sets either the humanoid jump height in studs or the jump power in studs/second. Note how adjusting this value changes the max jump distance in relation to the walk speed.
Walk Sets the humanoid walk speed in studs/second. Note how adjusting this value changes the max jump distance in relation to jump height or power.
Slope Determines the maximum slope angle that humanoids can climb. If the angle of a slope is greater than this value, they will slide down the slope.
