Lag Survival Guide

We all know: Lag is a very big problem on ROBLOX. The admins are working very hard to remove as much lag as possible. But you do know you can do simple steps to reduce lag? Also learn techniques of surviving in a Lag fest.

-The first thing you must know is the control lag. This lag makes your actions occure later than the time you pressed a button.
To start, move to the closest wall, but don’t go to the wall. Stop holding the movement key before touching the wall. If your still moving, just wait a bit and then retry.

-Then comes the Brick/Snap lag, this is THE lag that’s the most common. First, you must know that it gets laggy ONLY if you look at lots of bricks. So, the action that should be done first is to change your camera angle to look down. You will (most of the time) see only the baseplate and yourself. Just note that looking UP is not recommended. Why? Simple! You don’t know WHERE you’re going.

-Making a Reduced-Lag place: first of all, add in the Snap Remover script (Aeacus made it), this will remove all the un-nessesary snaps. The next thing is kinda important. Don’t make a wall with many Small bricks (unless you want to make it destroyable), prefer making it with 5-6 Big bricks. Already, that’s ALOT of brick saving, since you lose like 100 Small bricks! That’s looks kinda small, but believe me, you’re gonna get less lag.

-(The following was suggested by briguy9876) Houses can be really laggy if there is alot of furniture. Stealth Pilot has created an Anti Lag house, and I’ll explain you how.
The first thing you will think is: “I put furniture, and POOF! No lag!”. Well that’s uber-wrong. Start placing the furniture INSIDE the house. Once that’s done, move all the furniture to the empty model inside the house. Test it. You will see a empty house, and -once you enter-, the furniture magically appear. And when you get out, POOF! Gone.

  1. Roblox is stupid in handling lag. Games like Half-Life 2 have MUCH better graphics and require much more processing power. So how come I have less lag on Source games than Roblox?

  2. I thought they just removed snaps, as the name indicates… ?

  3. i think that snap removers stop you from seeing stuff thats not that close to you so i wouldn’t use them

  4. Thank you! I really think this will help, i’m going to try to make a “lodge” thing.

  5. im gonna try this

  6. I know about Stealth Pilot’s anti-lag building, just wasn’t able to find it in the toolbox yet >.<

  7. really awsome i am going to use it!

  8. Stealth Pilot has an anti-lag building in his Models. Add that on.
