WoodReviewer’s 2018 Advent Calendar Day 3

Festive greetings Robloxians, WoodReviewer here for day 3 of my 2018 Advent Calendar. This is the great return of the normal disappointment that is expected from this calendar after the surprisingly high standards put up by the gifts the last two days.

Of course, I’m sure you are wondering what can beat out a wedge in terms of disappointment. But don’t worry, I always fail ate meeting expectations. So what is in today’s gift?

Woodreviewer’s 2018 Advent Calendar Day 2

Hello unenthusiastic gift receivers of Roblox, WoodReviewer here with day 2 of my 2018 Advent Calendar. As we are not into the second day of this mess, I am bought back to when I did my previous advent calendars, such as the fact that doing these things 30 minutes before the blog post goes live is a bad idea and not planning more than one day ahead is also a bad idea. However, there are some good memories that came back, such as how the camera controls in Studio work so that I can take proper pictures of the daily box opening. So here it is, the first properly zoomed closed box of 2018.

WoodReviewer’s 2018 Advent Calendar Day 1

Hello Roblox users with way too much free time on their hands, WoodReviewer here for the first day of disappointment from my 2018 Advent Calendar. For new followers who aren’t exactly sure what the point of this advent calendar is or why I bother with it, don’t worry as I am equally as confused as to why I do this when I could easily just make a Tweet in 5 seconds telling Asimo how much he sucks and get 10 times the RTs as the entire month’s worth of posts on this advent calendar gets. But enough about how this is a massive time waste for everyone involved, onto today’s gift. What can possibly be inside the high quality crates that I made to hold this years gifts?

WoodReviewer’s 2018 Advent Calendar

Do you enjoy gifts in the holiday season?  How about useless, virtual tat that you will most likely never actually use but still want because it makes you feel special on the inside? Or do you just want random examples of wood grain from yours truly?  If you said yes to any above, I have some good news. Today I am pleased to announce the unveiling of the official WoodReviewer 2018 Advent Calender.

Very Scary-Hallow’s Eve: Sinister Swamp

Hello underage candy beggars of Roblox, WoodReviewer here, today taking a look at the lobby for the 2018 Halloween event place hub event thingy, Sinister Swamp by Beeism, TheShipArchitec, FutureWebsiteOwner, awesxome3, and Aotruo.

Seeing as this is just a small hub world for the various other games in the event, I initially did not have much hope for it. Not in terms of having proper wood grain, no, that hope was long gone. But my hope was that this review would be a bit shorter since everytime I do a review featuring Beeism I can see the storage limit I have on this site move a considerable amount, and I was hoping that this review would not be the size of a short novel by the time it was done. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case. It is closer to two short novels.

Because of that, I have decided to do a short abridged review of this game, in which I state the problem with the wood grain and then post all the examples where it occurs, but despite that this will still be a fairly long review. So with that out of the way, lets start with the first issues,


Yes, the most common example of improper wood grain, for all of these examples the piece of wood in question is vertically, or mostly vertically, holding up some mass, but the wood grain isn’t going from the base of the wood to the top, but rather wrapping around the wood. One of the most obvious examples of this is on the supports behind the fake Hollywood western set pieces scattered across the map.

Hardboiled City Part 2-2018 Egg Hunt Part 9

Hello egg hunt experts who stumbled accross this review thinking that it was an actual guide to the egg hunt but are now disappointed that this is just a short novels worth of words rambling about how much the builders of the 2018 Egg Hunt suck at using wood grain properly and are now both equally confused and curious if this is just a massive joke or a cry for help, WoodReviewer here again, again taking a look at the 2018 Egg Hunt, and again taking look at the third world in the game, Hardboiled City. While for most reviews getting to the ninth part of a review should require some serious padding onto the reviews, to the point where to get to 9 parts my review of the 2016 Egg Hunt would require 5 blog posts with one example of improper wood grain per post, and 4 purely text filler posts, this years egg hunt has been more than capable of provide a ton of content highlighting the low-quality of the wood grain.

So, what exciting example of improper wood grain will this post start out with? These chairs. I believe they are either very similar, or of the dame design, as some of the chairs in Eastarbuy Canals. If they aren’t, then they still have the same improper horizontal wood grain on the vertical supports for the back of the chair and the chair legs. And even if they are the same chairs, they are still improper.

Hardboiled City Part 1-Egg Hunt 2018 Part 8

Hello police role-players of Roblox, WoodReviewer here for part 8 of my look at the 2018 Egg Hunt. No link this, as I can see how many times people click on outbound URLs and no one has clicked a single link for the past 3 days despite getting hundreds of views. So go find the egg hunt yourself.

Anyway, today’s featured world in the Egg Hunt is World 3, Hardboiled City. Before I start this review, I want to clarify what Hardboiled City is. Hardboiled city appears to be some type of New York/Chicago-lite place, with tall buildings, dock yards, mobsters, and large hotels. So basically it is a realistic place, not a wacky place like Wonderland grove. The point is it is a realistic place, so it should have realistic wood grain.

The wood grain on this bookshelf is not realistic. The grain should be vertical, going from the bottom of the bookcase to the top. I believe I had similar issues with bookcases in the Library, Merlin’s Swamp, and another world or two. The point being, bookcases are not well done in this years egg hunt. In addition to the bookcase, the small desk in front of me also had several cases of improper wood grain. One was the actual top for the desk, whose wood grain should stretch from one side of the desk to the other, not from the front to the back. In addition, the deck legs were improper. This is also one example of why unions are bad; the union for the chair legs combines both the legs and the lowest horizontal section together, but this means either the horizontal section or the chair legs have improper wood grain. This is also why I dislike auto-wood grain fixing plugins, as they are unable to detect when builders do this with unions.

Stein’s Lab-Egg Hunt 2018 Part 7

Hello bootleg Mouse Trap players of Roblox, WoodReviewer here to take yet another look at the 2018 Egg Hunt by Fifteam. This is my 7th review on the 2018 Egg Hunt, which has so far taken a look at 2 main worlds, the hub world, and now 2 sub worlds. This has been a very long and overly detailed journey, and with the egg hunt ending in 2 days it is sad to think it is over so soon. But worry not; there are still 3 more main worlds, 3 more sub worlds, and 1 more extra world to review. So anywhere between and 10 more posts to come on it. Maybe more. Probably more. Honestly, the though of doing a 14+ part review on one game seems pretty silly to me even now, but oh well, the improper wood grain needs to be called out.

Today I am taking a look at Stein’s Lab, which is a fairly short boss fight but still has several examples of improper wood grain, despite the fact there are only like 3 wooden assets in this entire world. First, lets start off with some good news: This small crate was correct.

Easterbury Canals Part 2-2018 Egg Hunt Part 6

Hello over-zealous candy lovers of Roblox, WoodReviewer here for what has turned into my longest review ever, both blog count, image count, and word count wise. And after this post, I’ve still only reviewed less than half the game. As much as I do enjoy bashing the 2018 Egg Hunt I do believe that this is just a bit excessive.

The bad wood grain, I mean. That is excessive. These blog posts calling out the improper wood grain are 100% necessary and not at all overkill, no matter how much writing them all is killing my non-existent social life. Today I am continuing my look at Easterbury Canals, continuing where I left off last time by looking at more chairs with improper horizontal wood grain on their legs and back supports. Of course, these chairs are different from the previous sets of chairs I’ve looked at in this map so far, but they still have the same issues as the previous chairs. In addition to the chairs having improper wood grain, the support for the table also has improper wood grain, with horizontal grain instead of vertical wood grain.
