Habbo has long been an online community for roleplayers to act out certain actions and scenarios. Habbo clients around the world have play host to a very large number of organizations that are devoted to roleplaying. There are many based on military forces around the world, such as the US Army. Others are based on gangs and crime organizations(e.g. the Italian Mafia), fantasy and science fiction, such as Star Wars Roleplay. Many Habbo clients around the world have a floor specifically made to cater for organizations devoted to roleplaying. Prior to these roleplay floors, rooms that were specified for role playing were usually placed in one certain floor intended for other types of rooms. There are two types of rooms: Public Rooms are rooms which are available to all members. They often depict scenes such as restaurants, cinemas, and dance clubs. Most Public Rooms contain automated robots which shout pre-recorded messages and can give members drinks and food items. Public rooms are designed by Sulake and are not customisable by users. There are two types of public rooms: widescreen and regular size. Users with a higher screen resolution will see the widescreen rooms, while users with a smaller screen resolution will see smaller size rooms. The other is guest rooms. Guest Rooms are rooms which users can customise to endless lengths with virtual furniture, wallpaper and floor patterns, and which can be purchased with credits. Users can also choose from a range of room templates that determine what shape the room is. Guest rooms can be created by any member and can be locked to allow access only to specific users or password holder.
