  • The valid range for numbers stored in variables and used in mathematical expressions has been increased.

We are happy to offer you the ability to scale players to very small and very large sizes, but it comes with a notable caveat: scaling players to very large sizes and moving them to spaces where they do not fit easily can affect server load and potentially lead to crash. of your instance. There are two ways to mitigate this: First, you can choose one of the Workshop maps. These are designed for experimentation and can be adapted to very large players. Second, you can use the “Disable motion collision with environment” action. This will cause the player to go through walls and ceilings, although the player can still stand on floors if the “Include floors” option is set to False. (Collision with floors does not have the same server load implications.) When in doubt, you can display the Server Load values ​​on the HUD to determine how scaling is affecting the server load.
