Workshop SDK: Mover Tools

We’ve got even more things to show off with the Mover Tools this week!


You can now pause all movers so you can adjust the items, then resume the movers. This is an admin button that requires the surface/IO permission to use.

Face Towards

Mover “Face Towards” feature completed. This is a rotation mode all movers have that will make the mover face towards another item.

I/O GOTO Input

It’ll travel to any relative position from where the mover item is placed.

Movers Misc

In anticipation for the Mover Train item: A new Coaster Seat item that comes with a few settings.

You can now export and import spline data, which will be useful if you want to share spline paths with other players or to back them up.


We also have some miscellaneous condo features to show off.

Location Volume

This is a new volume that comes with various permission settings and a way to label locations in your Condo.

Condo I/O Debugger

We made a new IO debugger tool. It’s basic at the moment, but still very useful. You can now simulate Inputs and Outputs directly from the item edit menu. This will help assist you in figuring out the flow of your IO, such as testing if your OnOpen works, or what happens when a relay is called by a button - without the need of setting up buttons.

VCR & BruRay Player

They now work. We also added more admin control over individual media players.

Particle / FX Selector

Will come with a bunch of particle FX. Has Condo IO support for Playing and Stopping FX. IO inputs will be compatible with the existing FX items as well.

Ooh Keen to get my fingers on all the new Condo things :slight_smile:


location volume god bless


particle selector is my new fav thing ever, thank you guys i’ve been hoping for something like that :revolving_hearts: :revolving_hearts: :revolving_hearts:


allow jetpack volumes will be sick!
jumpscare potential with show nametags will be crazy too lmao cant wait

edit: the face towards video embed doesnt work for me, but i can open the youtube video still. that looks crazy. will there be an option to face towards nearest player?

edit2: will face towards/movement in general work for volumes? it would be cool to make spinning damage volumes to simulate spinning traps, or sync it up with a workshop npc to simulate getting spotted/shot/whatever

Yea not loading for me either :upside_down_face:

The potential of condos is just exploding with these awesome new tools, so absolutely insane. Incredible work!


These developments are insane. I am so excited for these new tools, specifically the mover path and location volumes. Great work!

Also are movers synced between users? As in what I see is exactly what other people in the condo see. Also does it work with late joiners too, if a mover was already in progress?


Just want to know if the VCR and Blu-ray player could play local video files? I really hope I can play PS SRW game in the condo while the Transformers G1 animation (that’s not on YouTube) playing on the TV set next to me…

“Face Towards” video should work now, sorry about that.


Yes they are synced with other players and will sync for late joiners.


Impressive! Looking forward to enhance even more our condos with these new IO systems.

Mindblowing. I cant wait.
Is there a rough estimate what amount of items the mover can handle without lagging to much?
