Hello pink lovers of Roblox, WoodReviewer here for the second part of my review of the 2018 Egg Hunt by Fifteam games. For those picking up where we left off at the end of the last review, if you guessed “do a massive series of reviews for each world” then you either have a basic understanding of how much I hate wood grain or played more than 1 world of the egg hunt and saw that there was truly a massive amount of improper wood grain throughout all of the worlds. How much exactly? Well, you’ll see that soon enough But the fact that this is the second, but not final, review, should give you some indication. Also the fact that this is just the first part of a review on a single review should also give you even more indication. But first, lets start off with some good news: I was unable to see any improper wood grain directly behind me when I spawned.
However, that is where the compliments end for this world. The first area that I went to was the wishing well. Initially I was very surprised that the actual support structure for the well and roof were correct. And approaching it from spawn, the roof shingles appeared to be correct, but then as soon as you look at the sides of the roof shingles it all goes downhill. The grain on the sides should go from the bottom to the top on the shingles, so none of the gaps in between the planks are visible on the sides.
Next up, right besides the well, was this fencing. Initially this fencing reminded me of some of the fencing from the 2017 Holiday Event, but I don’t believe GollyGreg had anything to do with this years egg hunt so I don’t know why his assets would be here if he didn’t work on it. The problem here is the cross members between the posts, the wood grain here was all incorrect. The horizontal beams that should have horizontal wood grain had vertical grain, and the diagonal beams had diagonal wood grain, but it was on the wrong diagonal. Even worse, this appears to be individual parts, not unions, so it is an easy fix with the texture flip plugin.
Next up near the well were these barrels. Now, before I continue there is one thing I need to say: barrels do not obey my normal set of wood grain rules, to the builder can probably be forgiven for not having them be correct. However, if you have ever looked at a reference image for a wooden barrel before you can see how they should go: The grain should go from one end of the barrel to the other, not wrap around said barrel.
Leaving the well area alone, I next went to the farm area like 50 or so studs away from the well area. I mean, you can see it in the background of my shot from the well. Anyway, exact locations aside the door for this barn/fort/vault thing had incorrect wood grain. The door is clearly 4 separate pieces of wood; the outer wooden circle frame, 2 cross sections, and a wooden background. But they are all in 1 union. The issue with this is while one cross member, the horizontal one, has correct wood grain, but that leaves the vertical one with incorrect wood grain. Then the outer frame is just a complete mess, but that is a story for another day where I don’t have to split a single level for a game into 2 different reviews.
Next up on the Fort Barnox was the window frames. Surprisingly enough, here all the cross sections of the window were correct. Somehow. However, the issue came from the vertical supports for the sides of the window frames. This was followed up with a second issue for the window flower bed, with the top face of the planks making up the front and back of the flower beds having wood grain going from the front to back of the planks, not horizontally along the width of the window.
The last issue on this barn thing is the vertical pieces of decorative trim that adorn the front. These pieces of trim all should have vertical wood grain so that the grain goes from the bottom of the wall up towards the roof. However, they instead of horizontal wood grain going from side to side, which is incorrect.
But enough on this barn and well, so far this is already almost as long as most of my regular reviews. The next issue I cam across, again within line of sight from the initial well, was this bridge. This was the first of about a dozen of the same exact bridges I came across in this world. And they all had the same issue: while the wooden blanks went across the width of the bridge, the ends of the planks did not line up with the gaps inbetween the planks. The ends of the planks should be rotated so it looks as if the gaps inbetween the planks continue from the top of the boards, down the sides, and then under the boards. This does not look like that.
Next up, from just across the bridge, was this massive pig-pen. Aside for the fact the pig was so large it could barely fit under the roof anyway, the issue here was that the vertical supports for the roof lacked proper vertical wood grain to actually keep the roof standing. In addition, much like the bridge, the roof for the pig-pen lacked the proper end grain for the planks that make them look like individual planks, and instead make them look like some weird Franken-wood stuff.
Next up, just above the pig-pen, was one of several small wooden bridges used for climbing up the massive tree at the center of the map. The issue for the bridges is the fact the face on the bricks facing the camera has improper wood vertical wood grain, while it should have horizontal wood grain, similar to the top face of the individual planks. Oddly enough, while the pig pen lacked the correct end grain on wooden planks, the parts here that were wooden planks had the correct end grain. Go figure.
Next up for today was the table legs for the large table at the base of the tree. These table legs are some type of unions, so the wood grain is kind of funky here. It appears to not be truly vertical or horizontal, but some type of off angle, like 30 degrees or so from being horizontal. Regardless of what the actual orientation is, it is not vertical, and table legs should almost always have vertical wood grain, so the table legs are improper.
Last up for today is something for people who think I am too petty, the small vertical supports on the rocking chair portions of this fly rocking horse thing. Honestly, that is the best way I can come up with to describe it, but here it is. The proper grain on the supports should go from the curved rocking sections up into the base of the horse, not going the same direction as the curved piece of wood.
And following that is where this review will end for the day. No, not the entire egg hunt review. And no, not even the entire review for Wonderland Grove, just this particular part of the review. And why end it here? Well, simply because if I post the entire review in one post it would be comically large and would lag my website, so I just split up the examples of improper wood grain I have into 2 parts, posting half here and half in the next post. I know, surprisingly logical, but I need to do what I need to do.
