In the Roblox world, there is the newest avatar customizing feature. This one is the ability to scale the avatar size in your profile, games, and Roblox Studio. It is the newest milestone in the ongoing mission in order to help you personalize your avatar.
If you want to make the avatar become short in Roblox, the first thing that you have to do is to click “Avatar” in the sidebar of the official website of Roblox to go to the Avatar Customizer. It is stated that you have to be R15 to change the scale. Basically, you have to make sure that your Avatar Type is set to R15. Under that part, there is the section titled “Scaling” with the sliding scale for Height and Width. All that you have to do is to move the scale up or down to crate the unique character build for your avatar. Please keep in mind that the avatar can have the height between 95% and 105% of the standard height, and the width between 75% and 100% of the standard width. In the end, the scale that you select will appear in the avatar image, as well as in any game that supports R15 avatars and lets scaling. Do not forget that most packages only work with R6 at the moment, so if you switch to R15 your character will appear blocky. According to the representative of Roblox, they are currently in the process of updating all existing packages to work with R15.
By default, each game that supports the R15 character will allow the players to use the avatar scale that they set on the page of the Avatar. If the certain game only allows R6, it means the characters will always be the default height and width. If you ant to determine if the game allows scaling, first of all, you need to go to the Develop page. Then, press the Games menu. In the next step, you have to open the dropdown menu beside the game and click “Configure Game”. In the Basic Settings tab, you will be able to see two sections named Avatar Type Options and Avatar Scaling Options. In order to allow all the players to use the scale that they have set, please set the Avatar Type Options to R15 and Avatar Scaling Options to Player Choice. After that, the games that allow R15 avatars default to the Players Choice setting.
Another thing that you have to know is the extreme scaling. There are some games that offer even more size customization in the thing called Roblox Studio. Some developers have the access to four new NumberValue objects in the humanoid of R15 characters, including BodyDepthScale, BodyHeighScale, BodyWidthScale, and HeadScale. For your information, changing those values will scale the character by multiplying the original size by the current value for that dimension. Please take a note that the body parts of the humanoid will be scaled in all three dimensions while the HeadScale will scale the head uniformly. The moment you use the scripts in your game, you will be allowed to the Avatar Customizer page’s scale limits.
