Configuring a Place
Configuring a Place
Roblox games are made up of individual places. A place is like a level or stage in a larger game — it contains the building blocks, terrain, user interfaces, game logic, and everything else that makes up a level.
Every time you publish one of your creations to Roblox, it becomes a place that you can assign to an overall game, either as the “starting place” for players who enter the game, or as a place that players can be moved to through the
Articles/Teleporting Between Places|TeleportService methods.
Places can be configured through different paths:
- From Places on the Create page, select Configure Place from the right-side pull down menu.
- On the place’s detail page, click in the upper-right corner of the place box, then click Configure this Place.
There are eight sections of the configuration page, each containing different groups of place settings.
The first tab is Basic Settings. From this section you can change the name of the place and its description.
The second tab brings up the Game Icon section which allows you to upload a game icon. This icon will appear with your game on the Games page. If you don’t upload a custom icon, Roblox will choose one from a default icon collection.
Articles/Game Icons Tips|Game Icons article for tips and best practices on creating game icons.
The third section is Thumbnails which differ from game icons. Rather than appearing on the general Games page, thumbnails appear on your game’s dedicated page. You can upload both image and video thumbnails to promote your game.

The Access section lets you set the supported platforms, who can access the place, server settings, etc.
|Playable Devices||Which type of devices your game supports. If any of these are unselected, players on those device types will receive a message that the game is unavailable.|
|Game Access||This portion currently contains only one option: whether to sell access to the game or not. If checked, you can enter a price between 25 and 1000 Robux. Roblox then calculates the marketplace fee and the amount you'll receive after this fee. Note that members of the Roblox Builders Club will earn a much higher percentage of Robux for each access sold (70%) compared to non-members (10%).|
|Maximum Player Count||The maximum number of players allowed in one running instance of the place.|
|Server Fill||This setting determines how players are assigned to game servers:
|Access||Lets you control whether everyone or only your friends can join the place. For group creations, the "Friends" option is replaced with "Group Members." Note that if you're selling game access or if VIP servers are enabled, you cannot restrict access in this way.|
|VIP Servers||If this option is checked, players can purchase
This section allows you to control various permissions.
|Gear Permissions||These settings let you control the gear that players can bring in. You can limit gear to the genre (or allow all genres) and choose what types of gear are allowed. See
|Allow Copying||Whether to allow other Roblox developers to make copies of the place. See
Articles/Protecting Your Creationsfor details.
In the Version History section, you can see all of the place updates that were made and when they were created. You can revert to any previous version by clicking its button.
In the Developer Products section, you can manage the
Articles/Developer Products In Game Purchases|developer products for the place.
This section contains two in-game permissions entries: whether to allow the place to be used as a template, and whether to allow the place to be updated.
