Deleting a place is not as simple as hitting an abort button. There are several steps that you need to learn. You also need to be careful not to delete the wrong one that you might want to use later. There is no way to retrieve places that have been completely deleted.

Roblox places are individual rooms that contain blocks, objects, meshes, and everything else in your environment. Their files also contain the scripts, UI, and other important parts of programming a video game.

Games in Roblox can be made up of several places. However, all players always spawn in the same starting place. Creating a new place is the first step to making a new game in Roblox. Games connect multiple places together so you can move from one setting to another.

You can use Roblox Studio to add more places to your game. After you publish your game, all its places will be added to your Places folder. Find this in the Asset Manager window under the View tab in Roblox Studio. You can also add new places by simply right-clicking an empty area of the window and clicking on Add New Place.

Although all players have the same starting place, you can add several starting places for more levels or stages. You can do this by making several places and moving players between them in the Asset Manager. This is outlined as Teleporting Between Places.
