halokiller’s “Build to survive the cold of an iceburg!” Place Review

I go in expecting something fairly interesting, being the 2nd most popular place this week.

I see the dumbest place I’ve ever seen. Except for the other “community building centres” that have the same problems.

There appears to be an admin below the water (which kills you, by the way), and there’s a weapon (???)


Scripting: 0/10. There is scripting, but it doesn’t really make sense. Being killed instantly when you hit the water is not what I call making sense.
Tools: 1/10. It is “build to survive”, but a noob can go in there and destroy the place, and then there’s a weapon (how does that fit in?)
Building: 1/10. Iceburgs are OK, and the logs that you can build with — the shiny ‘ice’ one looks cool. That’s it.
General Enjoyment: 1/10. Noobs rule.
Originality: 1/10. It’s a variation on a well known concept.
Creativity: 2/10. There was a little creativity in the logs. Could’ve done a lot more, though.
Ease of Use: 2/10. Difficult to get around because the building structure of the iceburg is too choppy. The tools are standard.
Easy to Learn: n/a. Nothing to learn.
Deals with Problems: 0/10. Noobs rule. Even if they didn’t, I suspect you could get into what I believe is the “admin room” by building underneath the water. :O
Deals with Lag: n/a. I don’t know if lag becomes an issue, but there’s nothing in there to create lag. The possibility of noobs creating literally thousands of bricks to create lag — I’ll keep that degrading of marks in “Problems” and “General Enjoyment”.

Overall: 1/10. It doesn’t deserve even that, if you ask me. It’s a pointless place. Anyone could do better if they tried (except maybe the possible admin scripts, but I don’t know if they work…).
