New Hairstyles!

A lot of times, hair is one of the main ways people express themselves or their culture. In Rec Room, we want you to be able to see yourself in your avatar, so we have added a bunch of new hairstyles for a broader range of options! The new hairstyles include Afro Puffs, Box Braids with Cuff, Box Braid, Braided Bun, Curly Bob, Etched Flattop, Etched Fade, Short Curly Twists, Wavy Middle Part, Short Locs, Wolf Cut!

All new hairstyles are default unlocked, so you can enjoy them right away - whether you are a new player or a returning one! Just go to your mirror to customize!

Interaction Roles

The following interactions can now be enabled or disabled on a per-object basis for players with specific roles:

  • Basic Interactions: grabbing, climbing, clambering, wall running.
  • Pushing buttons & toggle buttons.
  • Interacting with Pool Tables, including setting the game mode and playing shots.
  • Drawing on the art canvas, poster, and other similar surfaces.

Use the configure menu on an object to check its interaction role settings!

Physics Refactor

Creators can now optimize colliders on Physical objects using the Configure Tool. Optimized colliders have a visual when gadgets are enabled and save a small portion of ink. We also have some other changes to physics, such as:

  • We've unified behavior when holding or hitting items with your hands across all platforms!
  • Melee Weapons no longer lag behind when on WalkVR on Quest 1, Quest 2 and PSVR.
  • You no longer slow down for no reason on WalkVR. Time to beat some Stunt Runner records!
