Choosing your regions

Breakroom offers a wide selection of region templates, each designed to make event logistics a breeze. Learn how to choose a landing region, and how to add new and exciting areas for users to explore.

Overview

Breakroom regions are diverse -- you can choose from a range of templates and art styles, depending on your needs. There are conference and exhibition halls, large and small amphitheaters, open-plan office spaces, board rooms, and town halls.

As part of designing your world, you'll need to select a default region where your users can get their virtual feet wet. You can then create diverse work environments and host a variety of events by adding additional regions.

Default regions

Your default region is where users will arrive when they first visit your world. You can make your default region the main gathering point of your world -- such as an exposition hall, or an office space. You could also make your default region something fun and casual, giving users a place where they can experiment with Breakroom's features and customize their avatars.

Choosing your default region

You can select or change your default region at any time through the World Dashboard by following the steps below.

  1. Click on the "World Customization" tab.

  2. Scroll down to the section titled "Default Landing Region."

  3. Click on the region template you want to use.

  4. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click the "Save Changes" button.

Explorable regions

In addition to your default region, you can select one or more regions to host in your world (up to the maximum allowed by your subscription plan). Users can then teleport between your regions by using the search function, Explore window, or teleport pads.

Adding explorable regions

You can add explorable regions to your world using the World Dashboard. Just follow the steps below.

  1. Click on the "World Customization" tab.

  2. Scroll down to the section titled "Featured Regions."

  3. Click the tab that says "1. Enable Your Regions."

  4. Use the drop-down menu to select "All Regions," Template Regions," or "Regions Uploaded by User."

  6. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click the "Save Changes" button.
