More Platforms

One jump isn’t enough to make a great obby, so try creating different types of parts by clicking the small arrow below the Part button. Remember to use different sizes and rotations for variety.

Reminders
  • As you create more parts, remember to view your obby course from multiple angles. Parts might not line up the way you think if you’re only looking from one direction.
  • If any of the parts fall down into space, you forgot to anchor them.
  • If a part is scaling or rotating in “steps” that are too big or small to be helpful, you may need to adjust or turn off snapping.
  • If a part is being blocked from moving or rotating into another part, turn off collisions.

Colors and Materials

Right now, as just a collection of gray parts, your obby might be looking a little dull. Color and material of parts can be changed by editing a part’s properties.

  1. Make sure you have one of your obby platforms selected.

  2. In the Properties window, click on the small box within the Color field to select a new color.

  3. In the Material field, click the existing material and select a different option from the pull-down menu.

Toolbox

Studio has a sharing platform for game items called the Toolbox. You can use it to quickly find ready-made models, textures, meshes, or other items.

  1. Open the Toolbox by selecting the View tab and clicking Toolbox.

  2. Click on a model and it will appear in your game. You can use the search bar to find specific objects.

Playtesting

As you build out your obstacle course, it’s a good idea to periodically test it and make sure everything works.

  1. Click the Play button to start playtesting directly in Studio.

    While testing, you can use the same controls as a default Roblox game:

    Control Action
    W A S D Move your character around
    Spacebar Jump
    Right Mouse Button Look around
  2. To stop playing, press the Stop button.

    Playtesting Tips
    • Make sure you can actually complete your obby, and that all your parts are staying in place.
    • Try and balance your game’s difficulty. If any jumps are too hard, players will get frustrated, but if all jumps are too easy, they’ll probably get bored.

Publishing a Project

It’s good practice to publish regularly. In addition to saving your work to a secure place, publishing allows other players on Roblox to play your game.

  1. Select FilePublish to Roblox to open the publishing window.

  2. Enter a name, an optional description, and click the Create button.

  3. In the upper-right corner of Studio, click the Share button and then click Game Settings.

    alt

  4. In the settings window, set the game to Public playability and click Save.

    alt

  5. Click the Share button again and you’ll see various options for sharing the game with others.

And with that, your first Roblox game is complete! Try playing your obby with friends and compete to reach the end of the course fastest.
