Let's start creating a game in Roblox

What are tabs for?

- My Games - view all the games you have created.
- Recent - see all the recent games you have worked with.
- Archive - view the games that you have sent to the archive.
Confidently click on the New button.
The program will prompt you to choose a template for your future game. They can be both thematic (city, castle, concert, village, pirate island, etc.) and gameplay-based (racing, platformer, capture the flag, arena, etc.).
We'll use the Racing map as an example.
So, we have a racing game template open.
You can rotate the camera by holding down the right mouse button. You can drag any objects by holding down the left mouse button.
On the left, you will see a large window with the subtitle Toolbox. This is where all the physical objects and scripts you can use on your map are stored. In our case, these are cars, buildings, and lighting elements.
Experiment and try to place a couple of cool cars and stylish houses in the location!
And be sure to make sure that you have a Spawn Location on your map. This is where players will appear at the beginning of each match. She looks like this:
