Blade3rd’s “Zombie AssaultV3.0Status(Open and testing)” Place Review

May 28, 2008 at 1:53 am | Posted in Place Reviews | 3 Comments

Link to place. Below is the place picture
Zombie AssualtV3.0Status(Open and testing)

Upon entering this place, I wasn’t expecting much. Just another bad place, I thought, but seeing as it was popular I decided to check it out.

I was in for a big surprise.

This place is a novel. Literally, the whole concept is you’re in a story. You are a soldier after the zombies have taken over Robloxia. But you don’t just mindlessly shoot, there’s a story that goes along with it. The scripting is incredibly detailed, the building is great, and the overal system is astonishing. It also has room for expansion, which I hope is added. It’s targeted for a bit of a lower age group, so it’s not as “professional”, but it is still fun for all ages. The storyline is classic.

You start off in an area where, like an online game, it appears to “load”. You walk down the “ally-way” and different percentages appear (all increasing to 100%) “loaded”. Lots of creativity is found in some of those wordings… ūüôā Then you are another area where you can wait for games to be opened. At the current time there is only “game1”, but I suspect that more will be added later. There is a system in place that will wait for everybody to enter the game. It waits roughly 30 seconds, then it tells everyone that “game1” is about to close (a 30 second count down), at which point you cannot enter “game1”. Once in the game, much of you is turned transparent (an interesting effect!) and you get a tour of the area. BodyPosition is used a lot in this game. The nice thing about the tour is that scenes are actually displayed! It’s literally a motion-picture generation, just in the normal Robloxian 3D way. What I mean by that is that there are moving models, scripts to simulate an actual battle zone, etc. It’s very nice! After a fairly long introduction (but not too long), you are finally put down in the “green zone”. Another new feature is that you can “follow the yellow path”, which automatically appears/disappears depending on the stage of the game (very unique!). Zombies are generated at different parts of the interaction. Another great feature is that as time progresses, you are given the chance to get new (better) guns. It is not hard to get them, if you follow the instructions :).

The best feature is one I’ve dreamed of, but never yet implemented. Lag control. You are able to control the quality of the zombies and other things to control lag (so if there’s a lot, reduce it, if there’s none, add features).

I also find it nice that leadership is promoted. It makes it very fun for role playing.

I won’t give away any more of Blade3rd’s masterpiece, so you’ll have to go on in and enjoy it yourself! It’s got a lot of humour.

There are a few things that this place still needs, though. the building could be more detailed (but not by much), perhaps give a bit more space for the camera, and for more things to be added. The scripting still needs a little ‘touch-up’ work, but is effective overall. There isn’t much time for “open objective”, and it’s all preplanned. In other words, no randomness, it’s event A, B, C, and if everyone’s still alive complete D, E, and F. Once you die, you are exited from the gaming area.

MARK BREAKDOWN

Scripting: 10/10. Astonishing detail to scripting. Though it needs some touch ups, at this stage of development I think it’s very good.
Tools: 7/10. The proper tools are there, with little that could be more useful. They have been customized so you can’t hurt your fellow soldiers. Could be in a bit more detail, and have more of them, though.
Building: 7/10. Good building, but could use a bit more detail.
General Enjoyment: 6/10. There needs to be more ‘games’ to choose from, for different styles.¬†Otherwise it was fun, though slow.
Originality: 4/10. A very different place, but many of the concepts used are taken from other ideas.
Creativity: 8/10. Very creative indeed! Many different events take place, using a wide variety of scripting effects that were known to carry them out.
Ease of Use: 4/6. Most of the features were¬†easy to use, but there’s more that could be done, such as getting around easier (more space in paths).
Easy to Learn: 1/1. The little bit to learn was described well.
Deals with Problems: 9/10. Blade3rd (and a scripting partner?) have been doing a lot of work to deal with scripting problems.
Deals with Lag: 10/10. Very nice! The first features for decreasing lag I’ve actually seen! Also, there are rarely too many zombies, but they regen a lot. It works nicely!
Penalty: -0.5. As I said, it still needs work. So this penalty is basically saying “going great, but you need to keep working”, because I didn’t include the fact that there needs to be MORE as much as I could have in the above marking breakdown.

Overall: 7.1/10. This place did very well overall; it just needs more work done on it. I strongly suggest going to this place, if not now at least when more work is done on it.

The survey results!

May 26, 2008 at 8:32 pm | Posted in Roblox Direct News | Leave a comment

Here are the results!

Our grade on a scale of 10 (general calculation): 8.39/10! (Not bad, not bad…)

Favorite things of our site: The interviews, chess123mate’s Place Reviews (You has fans! =D), and the fast news posts… (I loled hard when I saw that.)

Worst thing of our site: Lack of pictures (What can we do with a Wii? O_O), the banner (I’ll used my GIMP skills…), non-working downloads (fixing that soon. X_X), and news copies of the Roblog… (>_>)

Suggestions: A TON of thoses suggestions were all different… >_> I’ll can’t list them all. (I’m L.A.Z.Y., or am I?)

Visits: Most players here visited more than 15 times.

One word to the point of RD: All were positif…

How did you find the site: more than 75% visited thanks to the Roblog. I’m amazed some players ACTUALLY found the site on my Profile…

Of course, the Usernames are useless, I just did it to know if there wasen’t N00bs redoing it over and over again…

I’ll try to do most of theses things (lets go for the 100% Done!), and good bye… for now!

SonicBoy’s Funny Video Contest Entry

May 26, 2008 at 8:16 pm | Posted in Contests | Leave a comment


Hello, this is my entry for the video contest. I simply posted this to grab more attention, and (as of now), it seems most people like it. Of course, I did not do teams (Only noobish requests… X_X). I’m also going to do 3 parades with some funny videos that users made.

So stay tune, we shall put on our first parade, around this week-end… (If I get on the Computer. X_X)

The HQ is opened!

May 25, 2008 at 8:08 am | Posted in Roblox Direct News | 4 Comments

I just opened the HQ. Oh yes, it’s only 80% Done, so you should look at it when it’s complete.

OK, so, the first thing you notice is the “weird” looking building. That’s normal, because if I did it like a Office Building, there would be major lag. Then, close to the HQ, you can see a billboard, clicking it with the mouse will announce you the latest Roblox Direct News, as of today, it’s the HQ’s opening. I also added a teleport tool to go there faster.

Keep in mind this is NOT complete. I also plan sometimes to do films there.

Are92’s “RoWar 6 Mine Coaster” version “new Store and Weapons” Place Review

May 22, 2008 at 8:32 pm | Posted in Place Reviews | Leave a comment

Link Below, Place Picture
RoWar 6 Mine Coaster, new Store and Weapons 

RoWar 6 Mine Coaster is a very original place. It involves a new concept of mine coasters and mining. It is very well built, with upgrades and gold, but it has a few problems.

The weapons only shoot if you’re in a cart, which makes sense and works well. As is proper, if you die, you do get any bought weapons back. The carts can be regened via a click-detector button, and there is a complex system of mine tracks to explore with track-changers.

Unfortunately, the weapons often kill you more than they hurt anyone else. The carts often get derailed or are just slightly off-track (which slows them down). You get gold by going through checkpoints (I believe there are either 7 or 8). If you go through a different checkpoint than you did the last time, you get 1 gold. I believe that it is too easy to get the gold. Simply walk through 2 checkpoints that are close together and you get a lot of gold very easily. Just beware of people with guns. Soon you’ll be rich and can buy all the weapons you like.

MARK BREAKDOWN

Scripting: 9/10. The scripting is great, but there are the bugs and the problems I mentioned above.
Tools: 6/10. There is a reset tool,¬†a run tool (I think, but run tools have been bugged lately so I don’t know for sure; being labelled “Weeeee” it could just be an arms-up tool for the fun of it), and a pistol and other weapons that you can buy. There was also a new tool I haven’t seen before, an arrow tool. However, I currently have no proof if this was custom made or not. However, it looks really good.
Building: 9/10. More could be added, but for this stage, the detail of building and everything else is wonderful.
General Enjoyment: 6/10. Just fix the bugs and make it easier to switch tracks, and it’d be a 9 or 10. Also, shooting someone doesn’t do you any good, yet that seems to be the objective.
Originality: 10/10. There are no other places like it (before it was started).
Creativity: 7/10. Very creative! It could be better, but a lot of variation in the tracks was done and creativity is evident.
Ease of Use: 7/10. It is difficult to get to the store, but I believe it was designed that way. The carts are a bit difficult to use, the weapons often don’t go where you want them to, and the tracks at times are very fast then very slow, making it difficult to aim or do anything.
Easy to Learn: 1/1. All features are standard concepts, except the track-switcher which quickly becomes obvious.
Deals with Problems: 3/10. The scripting takes care of most of the problems, but the scripting was also the problems as well.
Deals with Lag: 5/5. I do not believe there was too much lag there, but I do believe that there could’ve been an enormous amount if Are92 hadn’t worked on it. I believe it was well done.
Penalty: -0.5. There wasn’t too much to DO here. It was another one of those “You’re here to get rich” places. To me, that doesn’t qualify as a purpose.

Overall:¬†6.8/10. Overall, this is best place I’ve reviewed yet! It got its marks from being extremely original and¬†quite creative. However, some problems need to be dealt with and it’d be nice to actually try and have a purpose while you’re there, other than to get rich.

Video Making Tips

May 21, 2008 at 3:17 pm | Posted in Tips, Tricks and Help | 4 Comments

Ever since the Funny Video Contest has been announced, my Inbox started filling up with theses types of messages:

  • give mi tips on movy making plzplz.. 1!
  • Can you help me with editing a video?
  • I can I join ur teamplz?

I decided to write this post showing some of my Video Tips. Keep note that this post will conserne most of all Windows Movie Maker. Grab your cameras!

WAIT! We cannot start a movie without a camera! Here’s a short list of good movie recording programs:

  • Debut. (I use this program)
  • Hypercam2
  • Fraps
  • Gamecam

Of course, you can just type this in Google, and select the first site. There all free, but Fraps has a 30 seconds limit for the non-paying edition, HyperCam2 has bad quality and has an annoying logo with the non-paying edition, and Gamecam is pretty much the same as Fraps. Debut is completely free.

Anyway, we are not talking about the Cameras! We’re talking about the movie!

Sorry Roblox Direct And Viewers

May 18, 2008 at 11:58 pm | Posted in News | 3 Comments

Most of you noticed I haven’t made one review or even one post (till now), it’s because of what’s going on with me. School; most of you know that by the beginning of May or so, you stop working in school. Sixth Grade isn’t like that sadly. You keep working till the end of the school year. And plus I’m getting alot of people asking me to lay Garry’s Mod with them or TF2 (most of you might not know those nor can’t play them because your parents won’t let you play them.) Plus my computer recently stopped working due to trying something. I’m using my mum’s computer. I shall hopefully get in a report on a place or something on the first day of summer. Cheers!¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† ~ Inzuki

Two glitches are no longer performable D:

May 17, 2008 at 3:34 pm | Posted in Quick News | 3 Comments

1. Well Sonicboy posted quite a while ago that if you wear the brown cowboy hat, you suddley are wearing a white one when you’re in a game. This was fun while it lasted but with the new update you’re back to wearing the brown one and you’ll have to cough up 1,400 rrobux for the white one.

2. Alright this glitch wasn’t as cool but if you wore a gygax egg with an Are92 admin¬†T-shirt and black pants with green arms, medium green torso, and some coloured head, on your profile page the gygax egg looks like it is white, welded, and had little holes in it. Well sadley no more. Hopefully though more glitches that we can amuse ourselves with will come along soon. Speaking of which I would like to point out that with the new release you can stand on the crack between two blocks and your character starts moving in one place as if they were climbing a ladder. Well that’s all for now!
