What are beta features?
This feature allows you to try out features before they are officially released. It is provided for the purpose of accelerating development by receiving feedback on the usability before the official release.
Beta worlds have icons to help you identify them.
When you enter the Beta World, you will receive a warning that pre-release functionality is being used. Once you understand the warning, you will be able to enter the room.
As of September 2023, Beta World cannot be used for events.
Worldcraft with Beta Features Allowed
Beta items can be placed in addition to regular craft items in world crafts that allow beta features.
When a world craft that allows beta features is released, it becomes a beta world.
Items that utilize beta features will be marked with a beta icon.
Beta items cannot be placed in worldcraft that do not allow betas. Additionally, beta items cannot be commercialized.
How to enable beta features
Beta content with beta features enabled can be created in the following ways:
