Devlog #88 — Checkpoint Courses & Ads in Builder Tools!

2 min readAug 22, 2023

Welcome to Devlog 88! As we approach the 90th consecutive week of publicising our development here at Realm its good to take a moment to reflect on all that’s been achieved and to thank all of you for being here for the journey.

This week we’re taking a closer look at creating custom checkpoint courses, as well as a deep dive into adding Ads to your realm in order to monetise in the near future. This is a big step for builders and for the builder tools in general!

Lets check it out:

Checkpoint Match Component

This week we’re showing off another demo of the checkpoint custom match creation tools in the builder. This awesome feature is developing really nicely and is almost ready for deployment.

As you can see its super intuitive to create an interesting / challenging course for players and start it up using just smart objects! We love how this course using the jumping physics to force the player to experiment with turning corners in mid-air!

The remaining work on this feature involves the matchmaking components themselves and making sure that creators can easily add matchmaking smart objects that link to their specific game / realm or a random selection of their created games. Once this is all done we will be unleashing this for creators to build super fun experiences for players.

Realm Academy: Ads in the Builder

The latest installment from arty is a great one — showing how to place Adside your Realm using Smart Objects!

Ads are slowly being implemented fully into the Realm platform for some territories, and will be expanded dramatically in the coming months. This means that builders will begin earning from their games and worlds — so its definitely an important skill to learn when creating in Realm!

We absolutely love the implementations Arty shows at the end of the video with this awesome sky-world he’s created. Watch the tutorial here:

We hope you found these updates informative and exciting. Thank you for your continued support, and stay tuned for more updates from the Realm team!
