Patchnotes via Steam Community

This update we've revamped our new user experience, avatar customization...honestly it's so much it's dizzying!

Redesigned title screen!

  • You are now greeted by your smiling Avatar
  • Nice and sunny in VR (definitely no ghosts lurking in the corner anymore)
  • Consistent look and layout on all platforms
  • New experience for creating accounts

New Avatar Customization menu!

  • Beautiful new design and refined layout
  • 2D animated render of your Avatar (that you can rotate!)
  • Outfit items are organized by the "slot" they go in
  • Easily unequip items with the "None" option
  • Undo and Redo for each change you make
  • Want to mix things up? You can now Randomize your whole Avatar
  • Improved experience of adjusting your eyes, mouth, and hat
  • Did we mention you can see how your hat looks from all sides?
  • You can now try on premium hair dye colors before buying!
  • Permanent hair dyes are less expensive
  • Temporary dyes are being removed and refunded if you have them in the backpack or currently active

^Orientation

For users who are just coming to Rec Room for the first time, we've added a quick and delightful introductory tour of the Rec Room Campus. This is our chance to showcase the things we all love most about Rec Room -- our community values, our exciting games, and the enormous and growing library of user-created content to explore!

  • All new users go through Orientation as their first in-game experience.
  • If you're an existing user who just wants to check out Orientation, it's just another room you can visit any time you'd like. You can find it by searching for ^Orientation in your Play Menu.

Dodgeball Improvements

We've improved the dodgeball throwing experience for screen players. They will now stand a better chance playing against VR players (but not too OP!)

  • You can now aim your throw more accurately on screens with the help of a visible reticle.
  • The dodgeball trajectory is now more predictable and powerful on screen with fine-tuned animations and launching speed.
  • Charging your throw will now have no impact on the dodgeball's launch speed. It merely allows you to hold it.

Dear Creators, Introducing... Green Screen

A bright green backdrop to help with video production!

  • Find it in the Palette under the Creative tab
  • It can be scaled non-uniformly, and has configurable physics modes
  • We can't wait to see your videos!

General Improvements

  • Iterated on the layout of touch controls.
  • Fixed screen players being unable to equip items from a gift box.
  • We've improved the "Always Face Viewer" config option on the Text Gadget for comfort in VR
  • We've also added an "Include Pitch" option, which will allow the text to pitch (tilt up and down) when set to "Always Face Viewer"
  • The Select Tool's Quick Action Menu now pitches up and down to face the player
