Texture Clipping-Endorsed Models Part 9

Hello there boating fans of ROBLOX, WoodReviewer here. Today I am diving back into the world of endorsed models on ROBLOX by taking a look at one model that has annoyed me greatly for a while now: this Cutter by Quenty. This may seem familiar to some people as it was features in my blog post on review of the island adventure template place. In that review, I only focus on the insanely poor wood grain of the boat. Thankfully I fixed it and it now looks amazing.

Texture Clipping-RBXDev Offices Part 4

Hello there flickering devs of ROBLOX, WoodReviewer here, it is time once again to take a look at some RBXDev offices. Of course, this week is texture clipping week, so instead of the usual focus on wood grain, today it is time to look at texture clipping. Now this is not a normal review where I look at some offices, but rather a general one where I look at most and point out issues that I see with some offices and discuss issues with them, or show off how some devs decided to fix issues with texture clipping. Now, for this I am going to be looking at the place in studio, because I have a friend in the RBXDev group that gave me a copy of it.

First off is something that I forgot about. You see, to have texture clipping bricks need to have a texture that can clip. One thing that I forgot is that currently ROBLOX has 2 textures, neon and smooth plastic, that lack normal textures and as a result do no clip as long as the bricks that intersect are the same color. This is used in the main lobby for the floor of the RBX Dev offices. However, if the colors are changed, clipping returns.

More Horses-Horse Valley

Hello lovers of equestrian arts, WoodReviewer here, today I am taking a look at Meadows Ranch Horse Valley by SirMing, because apparently there is a large enough demand for horse simulators that there is more than one. They do differ in one respect though; Horse Valley focuses more on competing against other horses in races and steeplechase events, while Meadows Ranch focuses on riding horses around different environments. As a result, Horse Valley only has one map to explore as opposed to Meadows Ranch’s many maps.
