Welcome to the Town of Robloxia™ (WttToR) is a famous roleplay game by 1dev2. The game takes place in a fictional city known as the Town of Robloxia. In the game, players can find a job, buy a house, and roleplay with other players. The game got famous in early 2011, but ever since 1dev2's deletion and the place being uncopylocked, the game's popularity has decreased dramatically. The game once held the title as the most visited game on Roblox, until being surpassed by Base Wars: The Land. Welcome to the Town of Robloxia is currently very far behind the title of the most played game in Roblox. The game has accumulated over 36 million place visits. The game has also inspired other roleplaying games, most famously Welcome to the Neighborhood of Robloxia by Q_Q. After 1dev2 was terminated, it became apparent he previously created the account 1dev3 in 2009. On this account, he stored the game Robloxity, and is considered the successor to Welcome to the Town of Robloxia.

The game faced a slow decline ever since the termination of 1dev2's account and was having trouble reaching at least 50 users daily. The original version on 1dev2's account is now under review and is no longer playable. 


The Rise and Fall

Originally built in January 2010, the game is based in a small town called Town of Robloxia. It has a police station, a fire station, a medical clinic, and other industrial and commercial private companies. Such companies include a tower, a fire station, a gas station, a factory, a mall, a small airport that is only for VIP, a school, and a news HQ.

On June 14, 2012, the game has changed to the starter map because Jaredvaldez4 stole WttToR and put it in one of his game slots. This version of the game hit the front page. On June 29, 2012, the place was changed from a starter map back into the original game, and it was made uncopylocked, leading to the game being copied and stolen by many users, such as Jaredvaldez4 and JuliusColesV2. It is unknown who did this, but many users say a site staff member set the game back to normal.

In 2017 the game was put under review.

Comeback

After its discontinuation closing to nearly a decade ago, 'Welcome to the Town of Robloxia' was re-released by 1dev2’s alt account, 1dev3[1]. June 4th, 2019 was the official date that 'Welcome to the Town of Robloxia' was opened to the public by 1dev3; he has made plans to update it when he can.

1dev3 also brought back Robloxity (A similar styled, city), which will also be updated.

Target as it appears in one version of the game.

As Roblox evolved, Robloxia did too. It all started with a simple game, 'Welcome to The Town of Robloxia' created by 1dev2. Fortunately, the creator refrained from copylocking the game. Many users have copied the game and added updates to bring back the memories but in the modern style. Updates have been added such as; more cars, more buildings, more jobs, better house, longer roads, etc. Majority of these copied games are called, "Get a Job, Buy a House, Be Rich!", "Adopt and Raise a Cute Baby". However, all these games contain the same core map style.

  • In January 2014, JuliusColesV2 created a place called, "[Adjective] Town of Robloxia!" which hit the front page in the Summer of 2014. The place was exactly like WttToR but contained several free models added by Julius.
    ​Additionally, he had a copy on his old Julius5005 account. The JuliusColesV2 version also has about 2000 more upvotes and 8000 more downvotes, which means recently more players are visiting JuliusColesV2's than the original
     
  • The game was also copied by JaredValdez; soon after it closed and can no longer be visited.
     
  • There are two copies to the game other than Janlari's game, which is called "Welcome to the Town of Robloxia" and "Have a family in the town of robloxia" respectively. The first one was a bland copy for others to enjoy because of the discontinuation of 1dev2's game. But the second one, similar to Janlari's Roblox Town, was also a game with additions, but not as major as Janlari's. It had an extra car shop, two extra jobs and renaming plain buildings, like converting RESTAURANT into MCDONALDS.
     
  • TXrangers222 made a game called "Different Town of Robloxia". Unlike the original, it didn't have a job choosing GUI. It has 9 extra buildings, and 1 extra model near the school is the playground. The school has an extra school bus and the factory truck was moved near the Target model. Similar to JaredValdez, all additions from the original are just free models swinging off the previous success.) 
    This edition is still played and typically has at least 30 unique players on it and has accumulated over 1 million visits.
    The game can be found here: Different Town of Robloxia 
    (Development for this edition came a close in July 2014)
     
  • In 2008, Janlari made a game called Roblox Town. It was a plain baseplate until this came out, and he copied the entire game with a few additions, which were super popular and liked by many people, and it became more popular than the original game. Janlari's account was terminated for unknown reasons.
    The known additions were:
    • Extra Jobs (Such as Teenager, Racer, Farmer)
    • Addition of Cars, especially Racing ones.
    • Renaming plain buildings, such as ROBLOX MART to WALMART, and RESTAURANT to KFC.
    • Expanding the map by adding extra houses and more community buildings
    • Adding a hair changing, face changing and shirt changing shop opposite to the new jumbo houses
    • RP Name changing.
      (It's unknown when development came to a close.)​
       
  • As of 2018 stardon is currently working on a revamp to the game using new Roblox features such as the new terrain system, textures, and dynamic lighting. It also addresses issues inherent with the original version such as GUIs not showing up on mobile properly.
    (Development for this edition came to a close in April 2018)
     
  • remake of the game by Andrew7643 was made. Unlike JuliusColesV2 version, this version does not use free models.
    (Development for this edition came a close in May 2019)
    ​​​​​​
  • Two Roblox users named TailsFan2491 and XxGhostkillerxX1193 have made another variation of 'Welcome To The Town of Robloxia' that has modernized graphics, a new GUI, fixed bugs, and more features. Super Town of Robloxia 
    (Development for this edition is still active)
     
  •  In April 2020, ZOMBIEPO started their own rendition of WttToR, as of yet no official name has been chosen; using the original place as a template they are cycling through replacing every model with their own updated edition. Quote: "I intend to maintain the core nostalgia."
    The place can be found here, additionally, a Trello can be found here

Trivia

This section is a trivia section. Please relocate any relevant information into other sections of the article.

  • The original version of WTTTOR is currently under review.
    • As of December 1, 2019, WTTTOR has been re-published by 1dev2 on his 1dev3 account. 
  • This place has been stolen many times. In 2011, 1dev2 came forward with proof that he was the original creator. On David.Baszucki's profile, there is a previous copy of WttToR (originally the start of the stealing). When opening the place in Solo mode, a VIP Script can be found in the VIP Car. In the VIP Script, it is written '1dev2'.
    • It was stolen so many times, that most players don't know the origin. And it is renamed in Have a Family, Adopt and Raise a..., etc.
  • Welcome to the Town of Robloxia has the fastest place visits growth in Roblox history. There was a long period of slow growth (around 400,000 and 500,000 player visits), but in January 2010, the game was full of people, and on March 13, 2011, it received 1,000,000 total visits. One month later in April, it had grown to 2,000,000 place visits. It finally received 3,000,000 visits around late May 2011. 
  • WttToR has not been updated for a while, so, there have been quite a few bugs including that a player cannot buy a house due to no 'Buy House' button. The player can easily spot this as the garage door will always be open. 1dev2's last update to the place before he was banned was bringing the VIP back. His account was then deleted due to the 2012 April Fools Incident.
    • One other glitch is when the player leaves the game or sells the house, the mailbox still says the players' name. If another player buys it, then their name will be mixed up with that player's name, although they can still sell their house, unlock their house's doors and open its garage.
  • Although not every player participates in this, WttToR was a notorious hotspot for online daters and roleplayers.
  • The game is uncopylocked.
  • Along with Reason 2 Die by PlaceRebuilder, this is one of the only Roblox games to have been given a good review by the Raging Roblox Reviewer series.
  • In the earlier versions of the game, guns used to deal 5 damage, later down the line this was revised to only 'Police' & 'Criminals'; in the final edition, this feature was disabled entirely.
  • The Roblox Mart is a representation of Walmart and houses several goods that players can buy with the currency they earn from jobs..
  • When the player resets themselves, their car breaks and they need to get a new car.
  • Another game was made by 1dev2 called "Welcome to the City of Robloxia". It was pretty much the same game with the same vehicle and building sprites, but the differences were that this was in a coastal island city and the roads were long with many signals and parking lots, and houses were replaced with apartments.
    • This game can be found again in 1dev3's profile. People still play this game.
  • Sometime in 2017, the game went under review and is currently unavailable to play.
  • There are two copies of the game other than Janlari's game, which are called "Welcome to the Town of Robloxia", and "Have a family in the town of robloxia", respectively. The first one was a bland copy for others to enjoy because of the discontinuation of 1dev2's game, but the second one, similar to Janlari's Roblox Town, was also a game with additions, but not as major as Janlari's. It had an extra car shop, two extra jobs and renaming plain buildings, like converting RESTAURANT into MCDONALDS.
    • There is a strange thing that there has been a lot of hacking on the role lately. Some exploiters were doing things that weren't expected. In one time period, the first game was hacked by an unknown person and the map was turned totally purple and blue. The sky was totally brown, saying that "YOUR COMPUTER HAS A HARDWARE PROBLEM. FIX IT OR CONTACT THE HARDWARE STORE FOR MORE DETAILS". It has currently been fixed but is in watch for more hackers.
      • Something similar happened to the second game, but the hack was different from the previous one, considering that when the hacking was going on, the game was covered by a black screen which prevented the player from seeing the map. After the hacking was finished, the game was fully peach and brown, fully covered with sand. The sky was also brown. It looked like a sandstorm had touched the town. This hacking scared many people because the whole brown atmosphere gave a feeling of a super scare. There are many predictions that hackings are going to take place regularly on those games.
  • If the player tries playing the previous Town of Robloxia's games or trying to play it in Roblox Studio, none of the GUIs work unless the player fixes the game.StarterGui.ResetGui.Example.Script script with a LocalScript that functions like the original. Also, money no longer functions in the game.
    • Additionally, if the player goes to a script in Roblox Studio called "BanScript", they can see a list of players banned from the game as seen below, as well as 1dev2 and Playrobot, who were possibly the admins of the game.
    • A good chunk of those banned players are alt accounts of the infamous "WhelenVortexR" which was a player that looked to bit-for-bit rebuild the map against 1dev2's interest, which is why he had multiple accounts of his banned from the game.
