Hello SpaceX Mars colonization volunteers of Roblox, WoodReviewer here, and today I am taking a look at Space Miners by Rainbow Games. Now, I am aware of what all of you are thinking, “WoodReviewer, how much wood is there to review in a game about mining in space?” Well, you may be surprised to know that there was a great deal of wood grain to review here, starting with the basic trees.
Now for those of you who are unaware of how bark should work on tree, the bark should all face the same direction on the entirety of the tree; if it wraps around the trunk it should wrap around the branches, and visa verse. It does not do it here, as you can see it wraps around the trunk of the tree, but on the branches the bark goes along with the branch. Also note how I say bark and not wood grain; trees do not have wood grain on the outside of the tree, therefore anything on the outside is assumed to be bark for the benefit of the game creator. Still, lets give them the benefit of the doubt. It isn’t like they missed any easy things here, like chair legs.
Or table legs.
Or vertical supports on railing spindles.
I mean, I’m pretty sure that we, as a species, are far beyond having improper on such simple vertical supports, especially if we are in a super advanced space race whose economy depends on mining out and clear cutting alien worlds for resources just to get a fancier oven or refrigerator. It would be unfathomable to think such an advanced race wouldn’t know how to make a door frame work.
Or a second door frame.
But, if such an advanced society were to use improper wood grain on a door frame, they should atleast be consistent in how they use improper wood grain and spread it across all the upgrades for the house, and not just the one basic house.
Still, atleast the improper wood grain on the framing was only limited to the door frames, and did not extend to other frames, like window frames.
In multiple house versions.
Or on the framing for a flower bed. That would be silly for all of those frames to have improper wood grain on all of those frames.
If you haven’t gotten it yet, my tone in this article has been sarcastic. The wood grain in Space Miners is terrible, and I don’t know how people sleep at night. Seriously, look at the wood grain on this bed; anything more than a skinny cat would crush it.
I mean, I can get people doing things to put a roof over their house, but why would you want a roof over your head with a roof with wood grain this bad and not worry about the roof falling on their head.
I mean, sure, you can argue that the floor on the second story of the house may stop the roof from actually falling on the person sleeping in the bed, especially when the wooden floors are this bad.
Now, I could go on with another half dozen or so examples of bad wood grain from Space Miners, but I don’t feel like it is needed. Honestly, I don’t see the need to. The wood grain here was bad; very bad, it was so bad that you could almost expect to see it in an EBR showcase or something.
