What Is Roblox?

Roblox (stylized as Roblox) is a browser-based game platform and game creation system developed and published by {Roblox Corporation}, which allows users to create and design their own computer games, as well as play games created by other users. The game engine and scripting language underlying Roblox are both called a variant of Lua Task Scheduler (LTS). After developing or selecting a game to play, Roblox users can customize their avatars, which are unique characters that represent each player, by selecting accessories and clothing in the avatar shop.

Accessories in the Roblox avatar shop may be bought with Robux (Roblox’s virtual currency) or earned for free. Avatar accessories in Roblox are limited only by the imagination of its developers and player base, and can include swords, hats, neckwear, watches, t-shirts, shoes, belts, and other accoutrements.

What Are Roblox Accessories?

Roblox accessories are collectible, wearable categories of virtual items that can be added to a player’s game avatar. They range from wearable hats like the DIY viking helmets in Adopt Me to a wall picture of the Mona Lisa without a title to hang in your home or cafe. Unlike the more extensive creation of Roblox clothing, developing accessories is highly procedural, and most viable options require an individual to have a Pro account. Roblox accessories can be made by an individual for their game, or they can be developed for players as part of a game.

How To Make Accessories In Roblox?

You make accessories in Roblox by starting in Blender 3D with an idea for a hat, gear, face, neck, or shoulder accessory. This 3D asset is then refined in Blender and materials and textures are applied. The accessory moves in the desired way, scaling and testing are adjusted, and exporting the accessory from Blender as an FBX file is the last step prior to uploading to and using the Roblox site.

For those with coding skills that operate outside the Roblox creation software, the models will be imported into the Roblox site and given behavior using Roblox Studios scripts. The accessory is given a mesh, thrown into the workspace, and then made Universal. Test the accessory to be sure it works properly, and then save it to Roblox Studio cloud as a backup. Navigate to the Roblox site, move the accessory to the Avatar shop, provide a description and pricing, and generate a Thumbnail. Store the item in My Creations, and you should see the accessory for sale.

What Are The Requirements To Make Accessories In Roblox?

The requirements to make accessories in Roblox are to have the following:

  1. A registered Roblox account.
  2. The ability to create 3D models and textures (either through Roblox Studio’s built-in modeling tools or an external program).
  3. Access to a 3D modeling software program. You need to create your model outside of Roblox and then import it.

Item 2 requires some form of 3D modelling experience. Roblox provides courses and introductory guides to 3D modelling but they are designed for users who have already grasped the basic concepts behind 3D modeling.

Step-by-Step Guide To Making Accessories In Roblox

To make accessories in Roblox, you can easily get started by following the instructions below. To make accessories in Roblox, follow these three steps the first time and make as many as you want:

  1. Install Roblox Studio: Roblox is the first and most significant step in developing Roblox accessories. Once you’ve created an account on the Roblox website, navigate to the “Develop” section and download Roblox Studio. This is the main aspect of the Roblox game development software.
  2. Design and publish your accessory: Utilizing the Decal or Mesh feature in Roblox Studio, you may design a broad range of accessories. Publish your accessory by following the same process as publishing your place.
  3. Sell and promote your item: Promote your product by accessing the Create page in your browser and going to the item you launched. It’s the same page on the website where you picked the price for your product.

According to these steps, one being the release of Roblox Studio that enables designers to create objects for their characters, two being the capacity to create and launch a wide range of accessories, three being the capability to promote these items on the marketplace.

Choose A Design

Choose a design by deciding which accessory you want to create. Accessories can be hats, necklaces, scarves, and can be made using mesh part as a standalone item or including it as a part of the player’s outfit.

Decision factors including the intent for which the accessory will be used, the style of accessory required, potential target Roblox games to use the accessory in, and opinions of users or friends to expand the demand.

Renders can be made by professional 3D artists but most Roblox fans have used Blender to draw or shape the design. The following is a set of steps to make a hat or accessory, but these principles can be applied to all types of accessories.

Create The Model

To make accessories in Roblox, you will need to create a model to import it into Roblox Studio. Roblox allows users to import 3D models into their games so you can create accessories in other software and import them into Roblox. Once you have the model ready, you can simply drag and drop it into Roblox Studio. It automatically resizes the model and attaches it to the appropriate part of the body. You can then adjust how it looks and animates in the studio.

Once in the Roblox website, naviagte to the Develop page using the link in the avatar dropdown. Click Manage My 3D Models. Click Add New to upload your model file to Roblox. Click Create Accessory and begin filling out all the relevant field. Finally, click Submit for approval.

Add Textures And Colors

The next step to make accessories in Roblox involves adding colors and textures to the accessory. Roblox allows creators to design clothing items by adding colors and textures discovered in images. Users have to upload custom content to create their Roblox accessory with colors or textures. They simply open the Explorer window, right-click the Photos folder, and select Add To->Game. From there, just choose the Color Sequence or Image and click Palette tab followed by Image. Then click Add Image and decide how you would like to picture your accessory. You can choose from a Decal and PNG type of image.

Export The Model

First, click robloxDomesticDesigner in the top left corner to load the home page if not currently active. Click the Up arrow button in the top middle until you get to the Export The Model page. Here you will be presented with an overview of the models you have created and ways you can access them. Models created in robloxDomesticDesigner are stored on the Roblox cloud server. You can quickly access your owned models by browsing to the Roblox Library. You can download the Roblox App onto your device, log into the app if needed, then click on the three horizontal lines on the left side of the app. This will open up the side menu. Under Creations, click on Inventory. Here in the Inventory page, you can access all the items you own in Roblox. Various metadata is stored with each model, such as the category the model was filed under, the date and time it was created, and an ID number used for organizational purposes when uploading models to Roblox.

Upload The Model To Roblox

Accessories, unlike clothing, require a payment of R150 Robux ($2) to be uploaded to the Roblox ecosystem. After you create a model, follow this procedure to upload it to Roblox so that other people can purchase it:

  1. Open the Create section of your Roblox browser window, select your accessory model, and press the 3 Vertical dots menu icon at the bottom of the screen.
  2. Choose Configure this mode.
  3. You can set the Data 1 and Data 2 fields to Special Requirements and type in a short description of your accessory. If left blank, the Roblox system defaults to data showing creators and modifiers, but it does not matter which you choose. This is simply a little quality of life for coders.
  4. Open your Develop tab, and hit the Create New button located at the left side of the pages. You can use icons to select Objects, Passes, or any one of the various accessory types.
  5. Select the Mesh file to choose which piece of clothing/accessory you are uploading. Look for your IMVU-derived accessory files on your desktop. Look for the folder where you extracted the mostly bitmap or FBX and XML files, and select one of them in the Create section. Press Choose An Asset followed by upload selecting the asset. You can watch the accessory develop in an interactive viewer.
  6. Create an Thumbnail image. The Roblox software has a few rules for the file type and size of thumbnail images. Images can be .png, .jpeg, or .jpg files. The size of a .png can be up to 10 MB, and up to 8 MB as a .jpeg/jpg. You can use several programs such as Gimp, Corel Draw, or even specialized software such as Photoshop to create these images.
  7. You can set the pricing in Robux, and then make the object public or private (with private objects only available to those who you share the link with).

How To Sell Accessories In Roblox?

You cannot sell accessories in Roblox because they are non-transferable. Whether custom made by developers or regular items unlocked by players in the platform

(on Mobile and Windows 10 Roblox studios)

, they cannot be changed into Robux nor Roblox money. The only way for players to obtain accessories like hats or dresses in Roblox is to buy them with Robux on the market. They cease to exist if a user is reluctant or unable to hold them. You can’t even sell them that way as clothing can be. The NFT models do not function in the same way, but Roblox has publicly declined to link the platform with the currency of the NFT.

Join The Roblox Builders Club

Roblox Builder’s Club is an exclusive club of successful Roblox developers that permits its participants to sell items, clothes, and accessories. They gain a better ROI by saving money on acquisitions and upgrades. In General, these members are willing to spend whatever it takes to have the latest clothes and looking accessories and their absence from the market will be noticed and bring your product additional demand.

Create A Group

Once you have uploaded your Roblox accessories to the Roblox platform, you need to create a Roblox group structure to facilitate the sale and exchange of your accessories. Roblox groups can be used for groups of developers who create free models, VIP servers, or games for profit, or create clothing and accessories for their games or for the Roblox avatar store.

Roblox groups are also a way for those with similar interests and goals to connect and collaborate. To create a group on the Roblox platform, click on the `Groups` tab and select `Create Group`. You will be prompted to name your group and set certain default privacy and communication settings. Once created, you will have the ability to design the group’s identity through badges, images, roles, and more.

You can upload accessories to your group and set group permissions to determine who has access to manage and sell the accessories. You can set commission rates you earn from accessories sales, and provide your developers with the development tools they will need. You can set access permissions, invite members, and configure associated games on your page settings.

Set A Price For Your Accessories

    `Item price and upload fee` are the two primary cost structures for uploading accessories. There are eight levels at which Roblox developers can set prices, and some or all of the prices for each tier can be set by the developer. The highest cost for each tier is as follows:
  1. Base Accessory Price: The actual in-game price of the asset. Fifty ROBUX is the minimum cost of a particular accessory. Even if a developer’s unique accessory is selected by costume designers at Roblox, this is the cost that Roblox will charge for it.
  2. Price of Creation: ROBUX paid to the creator when a new player purchases the accessory. If the accessory is obtained from events or codes, this is the amount that Roblox would charge for obtaining the same item rather than receiving it from events.
  3. Public Price of Transfer: The ROBUX paid to a developer when an asset is sent or sold to another player. The Public Price of Transfer is a multiplier of the Base Accessory Price, instead of a fixed user setting.
  4. Private Transfer Price: The ROBUX value that a developer receives when they trade, sell, or take in-user accessories. When a developer sells an accessory directly to another user, it is typically less than the Public Transfer Price of ROBUX. This second reduction price is the Private Transfer Price, which allows for customization in the developer’s user experience.
  5. Fees for Production: ROBUX paid to Roblox for creating the asset, uploading the asset, and commission from sales. When selling goods to engage with customers, VR part stores charge commission fees. Artstation charges you a fee to collaborate with customers on commission projects. There are some services on AirTasker where they put their own share.
  6. upload price: For each accessory that developers upload to Roblox, they must pay a fee. A fee of 10 ROBUX is charged every time a developer uploads a unique accessory or clothing item. This can be circumvented by making adjustments to an existing asset from the Roblox library.
  7. Public Price of Trade: When a developer receives asset earnings generated by another player, Roblox distributes a percentage of ROBUX from the total price set by the asset developer alongside Roblox Corporation. Users will be able to see the Public Price of Trade by going to the details of each accessory asset. So, at the end of the day, by making the asset developer and the company they have a contract with get some good returns.
  8. Private Trade Price: What developers receive when they get the asset earnings generated by another user. This percentage is what developers receive when a product is obtained as a seller’s ROBUX, and developers get a certain percentage of the price paid by the end user to Roblox.

Each cost layer has earnings benefits and costs for developers. There are also benefits and incentives for developers and accessory creators including closing the pay gap, user internal interactions, recognizing their efforts, and increasing the overall growth of developers on Roblox.

Promote Your Accessories

You can’t make accessories in Roblox that are impossible to make in the Roblox game’s true sense, but you can utilize the Group Monetization function to make accessories in Roblox that are difficult or impossible to make without group features. If you want to create a remarkable experience on Roblox, encourage your group members to contribute to group projects to make a reality of extraordinary accessories, such as a portion of an interconnected map with buildings and rooms that are extensions of the group.

The best way to encourage group collaboration is to have a defined purpose, role, and promotional strategy for the group. Use slogans and logos as marketing for the group and accessories on their own, create group merchandise, disable requirement fee for group entry, make your objects group locked. Try to make a variety of group levels accessible to players, starting with basic levels and expanding to higher-paying levels.

Tips And Tricks For Making Accessories In Roblox

A tip for beginners trying to learn how to make Accessories in Roblox is to start with simple blocks to learn basic design mechanics. A tip for advanced users is to use FBX geometry files to ensure high-quality surfaces. Some tricks for making accessories in Roblox are using a mix of sharp geometric corners and smooth surfaces for accessory detail, picking a simple color scheme for the background, acquiring a valid membership in the Roblox group whose application you want to submit, and researching how other accessories are made.

Use High-Quality Images And Textures

You can use high-quality images and textures that take low CPU processing power as this saves them from getting pixelated and maintains their visual appeal. 4x enlargement for a 2K image is recommended. Textures in Roblox are generally expected to be medium-quality and occupy a canvas or mesh that is small when compared with the rest of development environments or games.

Assessment of proper texture sizing is best conducted by attempting to divide the texture into a grid of squares of equal sizes. If they are too large for their area, quality will decrease. If they are too small, pixelation will become exaggerated. Apply regional streaming levels to meshes so that areas less visible have lower quality textures in order to save memory. This does not apply to first-person shooters.

Be Creative And Unique

Creators of roblox accessories should aim to create unique and creative items when designing accessories for roblox. Many different designs are allowed including modern tech, steampunk, fantasy, and even billboards and light furniture that people just look at and enjoy.

One example of using a creative idea for a premium design is featured in Jordanlukt’s mesh from his Ready Player Two Hub contest. The wings on the back are held up by his classic Christmas holiday chair which stands out by being light and bright in combination with 10,000 falling snow nanoparticles. This roblox accessory design is creative and uniquely Jordanlukt’s, signaling that designs that evoke basketball, official events, campaigns, and other ideas posted by roblox users may be underappreciated.

Collaborate With Other Creators

Creating accessories as a team is one of the best ways to maximize everyone’s time and skills and create a more complex and interesting item. This includes a designer to create the concept and look of the item, a coder to create scripts and ensure functionality, and a modeler to create the 3D object. Collaborative work may or may not involve monetization. In the case of monetization, it is important to decide on ownership of the item and how revenue will be distributed. Collaborative work can be accomplished by inviting models and creators to an existing team or joining a team where your unique skills can be employed.
