Patchnotes via Steam Community

This update adds a (much requested!) new way to Manipulate objects in Custom Rooms.... introducing Maker Pen Handles!

  • Handles allow for you to perform actions such as Move, Rotate, and Scale in a single axis instead of all at once.
  • This update doesn’t remove the ability to Move in all axes at once, but simply extends the functionality.
    The other addition here is local axis manipulation. After rotating an Object you can now move it in local space.

So what's changed with the addition of Handles?

  • Local axis movement (on by default). The top right most toggle on the Maker Pen lets you switch between local space, and world space.
  • The text for Snap and Align have been swapped in for icons. Align is the left most toggle, and the Snap toggle is the center between Align, and local space.
  • You should be able to use Align in screens mode

  • While using the Move, Rotate or Scale tool, you can click on an object to Quick Select it and the new Handles pop up.
  • Drag a Handle in the desired direction to Modify it in a single axis.
  • For the old functionality, grab anywhere on the Object to modify it.
  • If you go in an edit a Maker Pen shape, you can use the Scale tool to get the same functionality as the Manipulate tool.
  • While in the Move, Rotate and Scale tool, you can tap the trigger to select an Object, clearing the previous selection. To multi-select you must switch to the select tool.

We've also added some quality of life improvements to Circuits:

  • Circuit inputs now support default values - use the Configure tool to assign a constant. No Variable Chip required!
  • Improved support for tooltips and wiring of circuit groups

And a new Room Chat Menu!

  • Use it to chat with other players around you!
  • For VR players, the menu is on the underside of the watch
  • For screens players, find the chat menu in Quick Comms

Plus a couple of bug fixes, including:

  • Fixed an issue where the Circuit board "+" pins were pink
  • Fixed the KREQ Sign in Frontier Island
  • Added functionality to support up to 40 teams for custom games
  • Fixed a few bugs with the Fade World feature while in Edit mode. Sorry about that!
  • Fixed a bug where platform locked items could cause display issues

And finally, we're beyond excited to announce that PlayStation®4 players can now purchase Rec Tokens!

  • Find them in your Watch -> Store -> Get Tokens
  • Note that Rec Tokens purchased on PC and items purchased with Rec Tokens on PC won't be accessible on PlayStation® (and vice versa) - though earned items will always be available on all platforms!
  • Please direct any issues with real money purchases to; anything not due to a real money transaction should go to

Thanks for playing Rec Room! As always, don't hesitate to give us your feedback =]
