How To Create Sub-Rooms

What are Sub-Rooms?

SubRooms are individual rooms that can operate under a single parent room. They will also share room stats with the parent room.

An example of this would be paintball; Paintball is a room however it has several subrooms, one for each map. 

Subrooms will always inherit their parent room's name so if you are playing a paintball game on the river map, other players will see you playing "^paintball" (the parent room) and not the subroom (River). However the actual room you are in will be "^Paintball.River" (^Parent.Subroom). 

Using subrooms will help to organise your room and allow you to better track the stats of your room. Players who are owners or hosts will also be hosts/owners in any associated subrooms.

How to Create a SubRoom

A subroom is automatically created when creating a custom room. This sub room will be called "home" by default.

You can add a subroom to a different parent room buy selecting "Sub room of" in the sub room settings, this is how you can have several subrooms but a single parent room.

How to access SubRoom settings?

Once you are in your room you can access the settings from your watch menu: This Room -> Setup -> General Setup -> Subroom Settings
