State of the Wood Grain-Twitter

Hello Twitter users of Roblox, WoodReviewer here, and today I am not here to talk about wood grain, but rather the preferred way that people seem to like to have wood grain delivered to them, Twitter. As some of you may be aware, there has recently been some drama on Twitter where several prominent members of the Roblox Twitter community have been permanently suspended, including CloneTrooper1019, PixelatedCandy, and Lilly_S, along with some other users having their accounts temporary suspended, such as AsimoISuckAtWoodGrain3089 and ScriptOn. These suspensions appear to be the result of a user reporting super old and out of context Tweets to Twitter to get users suspended. For some, like CloneTrooper, finding these Tweets were probably fairly easy. Lilly seems much more innocent. Not only is she a Roblox employee, but Roblox deemed his safe enough to have her as a toy that is featured in almost every Walmart and Toys R Us in the US, meaning the bar for a owning a Twitter account is higher than being the bar for a children’s toy. Even more troubling was the fact Asimo was suspended, albeit for only 12 hours. I have personally gone through every single one of Asimo’s Tweets atleast 4 times looking for dirt on him, and all I have to say is please don’t do that. He is an incredibly boring man, and this makes the fact he got hit by this even more amazing.

Hello ghost and ghoul enthusiasts of Roblox, WoodReviewer here, and today I am taking a look at Roblox’s Official 2017 Halloween event game, Hallow’s Eve 2017: A Tale of Lost Souls by Swift Dev and sponsored by the NERF Zombie Strike Dreadbolt. This game continues the decade long tradition that Roblox has established of a varying quality of Halloween games, with some being pretty good, and others being fairly bad. So how is this years game? Well, let me just state that the image folder for this review is the largest, size wise, that I’ve ever done. So with so much bad wood grain to go over, lets jump right into it.

Homer-The Simpsons Showcase

Hello Simpson fans who have refused to watch and episode made past season 12, WoodReviewer here, today I am taking a look at The Simpsons Showcase by LukeyBuild. Like most people that are under 50, I grew up watching The Simpsons on TV and really enjoyed the show. And although the exact drop in quality is debatable,  But you know what isn’t debatable? The quality of wood grain within Roblox games.

Wooden Planks-Why They Still Suck

Hello fellow texture lovers of ROBLOX, WoodReviewer here. Today is a great day for ROBLOX. Atleast for me. Why? Because the wooden plank texture finally got updated on ROBLOX, following some of my advice on why the old texture sucked and how to fix wooden planks.

So what does that mean? Someone is working on textures at ROBLOX.

Why is that important? Because if I find any issues with textures someone will fix them.

Now some of you may be confused, since the new texture update for wooden planks, bricks, and other materials literally went up 5 hours ago at the time I’m writing this, but go on. Play some games. Look at the new textures.

Done? Great. Now lets go over why this texture is better, how it can be improved, and why it got worse.

Trees-How Do They Work

Hello arborists of ROBLOX, WoodReviewer here, and if you are a real arborist then this blog isn’t really for you. But if you aren’t then hello, welcome to today’s post. This post has been requested by many people, including Quenty, who don’t quite get how trees work. Now some of you may be surprised that people don’t understand how trees work, and I have the same reaction to people who don’t understand how wood grain works. But anyway, enough of the small talk, onto the trees.

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.
