Test Server- November 15th…

16 11 2008

   They have opened the test server and we found a lot of updates that may possibly be coming to roblox.com soon!

   One of the updates had to do with the currency! They have added a currency exchange to the test server.  This is really cool because it a way to trade in tickets for robux easily. I tested it and if you do a 1 robux per 4 tickets trade then I found the trade gets done fast.

   Another is heads. In the change character spot they had a extra spot named heads and in the Catolog they had something saying heads..

   Lastly I found something that would be a cool feature on roblox. Advertising your place. You have to make a banner and get it approved by the moderators. It will eiether be above the roblox banner, Right side of page, or on someones  roblox page. I dont know if you are going to have to pay robux/tickets for a ad yet or what. They should make it like that so random users cant just upload one for a empty baseplate.

I dont know much about it yet but I will keep you informed when I get more information.. So check back for updates on this post!





Winter Playland CONTEST!

15 11 2008

Roblox has just released a new contest! It is a Winter contest. The main point of the whole contest is to make a game that is winter related. This quote below was taken from Roblox’s Developer Journal and tells some possibilities of games you can make…

 

“It could include some of the following possibilities…

  • A Turkey Dinner at Home
  • Skating pond
  • A snow fort
  • Ski lift
  • Ice sculptures
  • Sleds
  • A snowball fight
  • Gifts under trees
  • … and more! Be creative. “

Thoughs are not what you have to make as a place.. But they are some ideas to give you a idea of what you can make!

Your probably saying “What can we win…” 

 Everyone will get a hat as long as they have a winter playland place that has the letters “WPBC” in the title.. The hat is not yet released as of November 15th.

There is ALSO another prize that you can win… The hat “Ice Crown” and 200 robux. You will need to completly finish your Winter Playland place and get nominated by another user. But then after that you are gonna be judged!

Go to the link… www.robloxevents.com  to nominate a user…

Thats about it for the contest.. Just make a winter place with WPBC in the title and then win try to win the prize! The contest will end at the end of DECEMBER! So you have a lot of time.





October 30th Updates? What we found…

30 10 2008

Today we had some small updates around the site making it better. I have gathered up some of what I found important to tell you.

One update was making the pictures of characaters bigger on the comments. I think it looks a lot nicer now that you get a huge veiw of the character..

Also another one has to do with private messaging. When you send a message without a title then in the receivers inbox it will show up as [None] as the message title. It is good for me because I check messages and stuff on my iPod touch and I could not open a message that did not have a title.

   Also when when you click “People” in the navabar of the site then you will see a diffrence in the search. Its not a huge update but it is something that people notice when going there.

Lastly something free players will really notice is more ads.. If you have not noticed yet then go to anyones roblox page. Right below their blurb you will notice a ads. It is annoying and may cause more lag on the site due to the ads having to load up.

Those are just some that I noticed. If any more that seem important then feel free to send Allstarrip a message telling me about it.
