- What was it like developing Super Nostalgia Zone?
- What challenges did you have to overcome while developing? What was the most challenging?
- Ironically enough, the challenges I ran into revolved around accurately replicating how gimicky and awkward Roblox felt to play back then. Super Nostalgia Zone's mechanics clash heavily with Roblox's more modern polish, and a lot of the time I found myself having to reimplement lots of features and mechanics that either no longer existed on Roblox, or no longer behaved like they used to. The key focus for me was accuracy and attention to detail. I tried to replicate every minor quirk and feature I could observe, striking a balance between authenticity and user experience. Every feature and mechanic in the game has a meticulous amount of detail put into it. From accurately emulating how the old character animations felt, to the explosion and forcefield effects, the user interface, camera, controls, cylinders, humanoids, lens flares and skybox, really everything in the game is something that I put a lot of attention to detail into, and I'm quite satisfied with how everything has turned out.
- The biggest challenge by far was the restoration of Roblox's bevel feature. This is something that I introduced fairly recently, and it required me to do things that I feel confident saying no Roblox developer has ever had to deal with. I wrote an external program that would procedurally generate bevel meshes for me, and these meshes would be turned into MeshParts which I would then batch into .rbxm files that I could load into Roblox Studio. Bricks in the game are swapped out at runtime with these bevel parts, so I had to adjust a lot of existing code in the game to compensate for these new constraints.
- I ended up adding write support to a C# library I had written earlier in the year to accomplish the automation of this task. There were a few other attempts I made prior to arriving at the procedurally generated MeshPart solution (such as utilizing the in-game CSG API and having a custom LOD system written in Lua) but I'll spare you the details as it would take up several more paragraphs for me to explain all the hiccups and issues I ran into getting this all to work. Solving challenges like this is the kind of thing I live for, I love to push boundaries and using newer Roblox technology in ways that were not expected.
- What did you enjoy most while developing Super Nostalgia Zone?
