Roblox invites players to create their own games, using its proprietary system, Roblox System. These games can then be played by other users. The games are coded under an object-oriented programming system, which utilizes a dialect of the programming language, Lua.

Users can design and introduce purchasable content through one-time purchases, also known as game passes. Roblox also features microtransactions, which can be bought more than once. It is also known as products or developer products.

It is important to note that the revenue from purchases is split between the developer, and the Roblox Corporation. However, the corporation receives 70 percent while the developer receives 30 percent.

In-game currency and items

As mentioned above, players can purchase products on the platform. However, they can also sell and create digital items, which can be used to decorate their virtual character. They should remember that clothing items can be bought by anyone, but only premium membership players can sell it.

While only Roblox administrators can sell gear, body parts, accessories and packages under the official Roblox user account, some accessories can be published by a few users with past experience working with Roblox Corporation.

To purchase the above-mentioned items, players will need to collect the in-game currency, Robux. They can obtain it by purchasing it with real money. Additionally, it can be collected from a recurring stipend given to players with a premium membership. It can also be obtained from other players, by producing and selling virtual content on the platform.

Layered Clothing

Roblox Corporation recently announced the launch of the Layered Clothing Studio Beta. At the time being, it is only available to Roblox Studio users. The new feature mimics the way clothing drapes and forms on a body. Individual items, such as hats, outerwear, shoes and shirts can be layered in any order.

When the new system launches platform-wide, future avatars will be able to wear up to seven different layers of clothing. It is important to note that this principle does not apply to accessories. The Layered Clothing feature takes the combinatorial possibilities to a whole new level.

Players can still colour, paint and part-swap the underlying components. However, now they can also layer entirely new three-dimensional (3D) items on top of any body. Subsequently, the system will intelligently fit the layered items not only to the existing body components, but also to previously layered items.

How to activate the Layered Clothing

It is advised that the studio users open their Roblox Studio before selecting file. In the new menu, they should click on the Beta Features option. In the list, they will find a 3D Layered Clothing option. To activate it, they need to click on the box next to it.

Future releases

It is believed that the technology behind the skinned meshes is not only key to Layered Clothing. It is also key to the recently announced Dynamic Heads system. It is important to note that this system has a good amount of work remaining before its production is ready. However, it is now available as a developer beta release.

After releasing Dynamic Heads and Layered Clothing platform wide, the developers will start working on the concept of Dynamic Bodies, while the avatar team builds on the Dynamic Head technology, the dynamic bodies will allow users and developers change body geometry. This can be compared to the way someone works and plays with clay.

Dynamic Bodies will give the community an infinite number of creative customizations. This will apply to both new and existing Roblox users.
