Woof-Far Lands

Hello ladies and gentlemen, my name is WoodReviewer, and welcome to Far Lands.  Far Lands is made by Far Lands Advisory Board, and is lead by ChadTheCreator. It is a role-play game where you do role-play stuff with other people. Of course, instead of acting like a different person I decided to act like my normal self, and inspected the wood grain.

My journey in Far Lands began in the great walled city of South Dover. I began at this small stall selling things, but mostly complaining to people passing by about how bad the wood grain was on the roof for the stall.

Beach Fun-Cape Cod

Hello non-elite builders of ROBLOXia who have a deep yearning to learn more about wood grain, WoodReviewer here, it is that time again: when I have no idea what place to review but still want to get a blog post out. You all know what that means: Time to spin toe EBR Wheel of Woodshame and find a random place with bad wood grain. Today’s victim is Electiz, with his place Cape Cod. As always with EBR places, it goes not take long to find bad wood grain.

This was right by spawn. As it is easy to see, the posts that hold up the rope that hold up the lantern have bad wood grain. The grain should be vertical. Surprisingly, though, the chairs and table both had correct wood grain.

Duck Towers-Theme Park Tycoon v57

Hello lovers of ducks and giant golden towers, WoodReviewer here. Today it is time for a review that is a few days late but that everyone has been waiting for: Them Park Tycoon 2 Beta by Den_S. More specifically, version 57, since Den_S actually understands why version numbers are important rather than saying a game is in Beta. Now this review is a bit late since this game peaked in popularity a few months ago, and honestly I have no reason why this review was not made a month ago. However today is today, and it is time to review it. Lets start off with my giant tower of uselessness.

Escape-Prison Life 2.0

Hello readers old enough to remember when Prison Break was a relevant TV show, WoodReviewer here, today I am taking a look at the recently revived place, Prison Life by Aesthetical, now in the 2.0 version. This was on my short list of places to review this month, and with 2.0 being released and its massive surge in popularity today, why not do a review now. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Prison Life, it is a game where you live life as a prisoner until you escape, and then gather guns to return to the prison to brutally murder the innocent prison guards for either fun or to help others escape. Seems a bit dark when I say it like that, but most of the prison guards now are guests, so they don’t really have feelings. Especially this one.


Yup; Guest 666

Rotation for RBXDevs-How to Fix Wood Grain

Hello confused devs of ROBLOX, WoodReviewer here. Today I am not here to just talk about how wood grain should go. Today I am only here to talk about how you rotate wood grain to fix it. Yes, I know. You just rotate and resize the bricks. But that seems to be above what some people are able to do. So lets start at the very basics on how you fix wood grain.

No Plugins

This first part is how you can fix wood grain with a completely stock version of ROBLOX studio, no plugins or anything, like I use to do for years before newer building plugins were a thing. The first step is to have some bad wood grain.

Starting Place-Template Places Part 10

Hello starting players of ROBLOX, Supreme Wood Grain Ninja Master Model Overlord WoodReviewer here, today I am taking a look at the basics. More specifically, I am taking a look at the default ROBLOX starting place, Starting Place. For those who are new and may not have any idea what I am talking about, ROBLOX is an online game where you can create games. Some of those games have wood textures in them. I am here to make sure the wood texture is used correctly. Of course, not all players can create games, so ROBLOX pre-built some to give new users a starting point. I am here to ensure that the wood grain in these places is correct.

My Army-Clone Tycoon 2

Hello fellow Dr. Genus impersonators, WoodReviewer here, today I am taking a look at the successor to the famous Clone Factory game, Clone Factory 2 by UltraW. I did a review of original Clone Factory Tycoon a few months ago if you’re interested. But this isn’t about the original; it is about the sequel. Personally, I don’t really like clones. They are dumb and mindless. I much prefer the actual army of minions I have to do my bidding on ROBLOX. Aside from John. He always screws everything up. But my preference to minions aside, one has to agree that clones are truly terrifying.

Harambe-Harambe Tycoon

Hello gorilla lovers of ROBLOX, WoodReviewer here Today I am taking a look at the place formerly known as Harambe Tycoon by Berezaa. This place was once an homage to our former savior, but was shut down after a child fell into its enclosure. For those who are not familiar with Harambe, he was a very famous gorilla who had a long history of helping to improve the world. This included raising millions in charity for various fundraisers, helping to raise the educational started in several states by double digits and, most famously, helping to broker a peace treaty between humans and apes as a result of King Kong’s rampage.

Z Fighting-RBXDev Offices Part 5

Hello lovers of smooth and correct textures, WoodReviewer here. Today is the last day of my look at texture clipping on ROBLOX. Depressing, no? I’m sure some of you are upset that complaining about an actual issue is going away, but based on what people have been showing off on Twitter I am needed again to complain to people about all the improper wood grain that exists. But the wood reviewing starts again tomorrow; today it is time to take a look at some examples of texture clipping inside of the RBXDev office buildings. First off is an example of someone using proper building techniques to get rid of texture clipping.

Terrain and Roads-Texture Clipping Part 3

Hello there terrain builders of ROBLOX, WoodReviewer here, today I am going to be going over several ways to get rid of texture clipping when building terrain and roads, mainly with regards to C-Framed, non-brick terrain. So basically where the terrain is made of rotated bricks. So this is hard to explain, so here is a pond that I am using to demonstrate different techniques on.
