“Roblox” is an online world-building game that gives players complete control over their environments, imbuing players with the ability to build skyscrapers, construct landscapes, program events or anything else imaginable. Quite possibly the single most important tool in the game designer’s arsenal is the model, which is the basic building block of all “Roblox” objects. Understanding how to use models will enable players to build anything in the “Roblox” world.

Open “Roblox Studio."

Create a structure by dragging bricks from the “Bricks” tab into the game world.

Arrange multiple bricks in a pattern, such as in the shape of a house, person or letters.

Highlight all of the blocks by dragging your mouse across to the screen to create a box that encompasses all of the bricks.

Click “Group” at the top of the screen. This action combines all of the bricks together into a single model. By grouping, the bricks will cease to act as individual components and begin to act as a single entity.

Access the model by expanding the “Workspace” folder in the upper right-hand corner of the screen.

Expand the “Model” folder.

Access the model’s code by clicking “Script.”

Search the “Roblox” online database for script templates, or read through the “Roblox” tutorials on how to script models. There are numerous possibilities that you could program into your model, so the best way to start is to search the “Roblox” database for actions that you want the model to perform, then copy the code and paste it into the model’s script.

Code your model by adding or altering the code that appears under the “Script” tab in “Roblox Studio."
