Wondering how to use the Roblox character creator? If you’ve been building your own worlds to explore on Roblox, you may have reached the point where you want to control the appearance of other players in your game. To create truly immersive roblox characters experiences, you’ll want players to wear costumes that suit your world.
It’s one of the reasons why Roblox Jailbreak games work so well. If you couldn’t distinguish between cops and criminals, there would be no game. That is why this guide is here to tell you how to use the character creator in Roblox.
How to build a Roblox character
Although you can create a character from scratch, it is not easy if you are new to Roblox Studio. You have to put blocks together, resize them and even merge them. This is before you start working with animations. It’s much easier to take an existing character model and customize it to look the way you want, or use your own avatar as a base.
If you want to use an existing character model, you will need to find one in the Models section of Roblox Studio. From here, simply search for ‘Character’ and choose one before dragging it into your world. Doing so will allow you to have a basic model to work from, saving you the hassle of doing all the hard work yourself. There is also a lot to choose from, so you have to find one that you like.
Copy your avatar
Starting with your own Avatar has advantages too, the most pertinent of which is that you know the character works. Sometimes a chosen model can have an odd scale or be poorly animated. Copying your avatar is quite simple. While in Roblox Studio, get into the game by pressing F5, then expand the Workspace in the Explorer on the right. Expand your Avatar and copy all the items it contains by highlighting them. Now go back to creative mode by pressing Shift + F5. Paste the items you copied onto a model piece and you have a copy of your avatar to play with.
Customizing your character
Roblox character customization
Once you’ve selected your character, you can review and customize each part. This can be as simple as changing the color, but if you want to be classy, take a look at the list of other characters in the MODEL section. You can drag and drop parts of their outfits onto your Avatar to make them look more impressive. This is by far the simplest approach to customization.
Using your character
In order for your custom character to be the star of the show, you will have to do a couple of things. First, change the model name to ‘StarterCharacter’. Then just drag and drop them into the Starter Player folder. Once this is done, you are ready. Your players will now appear as whatever you created.
