Neighborhoods are a feature in Welcome to Bloxburg that allows players to rent a personal game server for R$149 per month, which is counted as 30 days after initial purchase. A player can join another player's neighbourhood through their username or the server ID, with proper permission. Neighborhoods can hold up to fifty players, more than the standard server size of twelve players.
Customization and Settings
Players can customize their Neighborhood through the neighbourhood Settings, which can only be accessed by those who have purchased a neighbourhood. There are various settings that can customize a neighbourhood to the player's liking.
When a player purchases a neighborhood, the default name is "[Player]'s Neighbourhood". The neighbourhood Host can change the name by interacting with the "Change Name" button, which can change the name of the neighbourhood and those who are in it.
Who Can Join
Hosts can manage which groups of players can join their neighbourhood. They have three toggles that can be interacted with:
- "Everyone" (Anyone can visit the host's neighbourhood.)
- "Friends" (Only their Roblox friends can join.)
- "No one" (only the host can join.)
Players who own a neighbourhood can change the server size. These server sizes can change from one to fifty players, and can be changed at any time. But note that there is not additional plots for players, rather when the player count exceeds 12, players would have to spawn without a plot in the city center in order to prevent lag in the game.
Neighbourhood hosts can ban certain players from joining their Neighbourhood if they believe it is right to do. When a banned player tries to join a neighbourhood they're banned in, a message will pop up on their screen saying that their access is denied.
- Note: None of these commands are case-sensitive.
The host of the neighborhood has a few commands they can use.
- /clear Clears all the messages in chat.
- Neighborhoods were most likely implemented into the game due to Roblox's restrictions on private servers, as paid access games are not allowed to sell private servers.
- If the Host decides to create a server with thirteen or more players in it, additional houses will not load, and players will instead spawn in the city center, or the host's plot if they are playing.
- This was done to prevent lag in the game, and to avoid having to find places across the map for additional houses to spawn.
- If a player who has a neighborhood refuses to pay R$149 for another month, their neighborhood will be locked or removed.
- When loading in a neighborhood, the player will be teleported to an alternative game created by Coeptus titled "Bloxburg Neighborhoods."
- This game is the exact same as Welcome to Bloxburg, but modified to support 50 total players and the neighborhoods feature itself.
- In Version 0.10.0, you can change the neighborhood time, weather, and you can change the ground color!
