Place Review: Pirate Wars

Arrg, prepare thy selves for the world of Pirate Wars! Ah yes, a pirate game, how fun could this get? We'll have to find out for ourselves.
Pirate Wars
     Upon entering this place we are greeted with our own little island. You can be on one of two teams, Blue or Red. I was placed on Red. I quickly find an enemy ship on our island and I say, hey, why not? Well, I soon discover that taking this ship was a bad idea. I travel along the ocean and stumble upon my team's ship, and the unthinkable happens. I get shot by a cannon and killed by my own team! I guess they assumed I was the enemy, but they had no idea that I had hijacked the enemy's ship.

     I was placed back on my spawn to try again. This time, I finally took my own ship. I then found out that even taking my team's ship was a bad idea... I was shot by my own team again! But, this time, I didn't die! >:) So, I continued on in the ocean, along the way shooting my own teammates. Getting revenge of course. I then stumble upon probably the largest ship of the enemy's team yet.

    I get shot by their cannon and shoot them in return, but my cannon didn't do any damage! D: I finally get blasted and my entire ship goes kaboom and I rage-quit and leave the game and thus ending my epic journey of pirates. I wasted 50 gold on this? >:/ I really enjoyed this game. Yes, you have to spend money on ships, whoopee. "It's like a real pirate map with a real treasure chest." -Some cartoon. Name that cartoon and get mentioned in a future post.

Battle Boats! Place Review

Now, on my laptop the game does lag a lot. It's probably the greatness of my graphics Vs. the stupid CPU. But no matter no matter. I can still review it.

When I saw this on the front page, the image was so persuading, here's a secret. I love games that are realistic. And this game surprisingly is very realistic, with a bit of flim-flam from ROBLOX. The game is a reality. It consists of a beautiful minimap, that tells you who the player is when you hover over their name. You also have the nice effect, that when you're under water, a bubble starts to shrink, and when you have no bubble left, you die. That in my opinion is realistic to an extent.

The game is made out of Terrain and ROBLOX water. You also have three teams, and preset boats. As the title implies, you do battle, with BOATS! But you might wanna watch out, these people are vicious, one wrong step and you could result in a most painful death, like Dumbledore's, apart from you'll be falling from a boat and sinking, instead of falling from a 50 billion feet high building (Sarcasm). Use your time wisely, size matters not, but in this game it does. Your best bet is to get a big boat so it doesn't fall apart so easily!!

The scripting on this game, to an extent is good, I like it. It's kind of simple, but it's very manipulative and great! He used many functions on this game, and they all add to the gameplay. Beautiful, beautiful. Smack bang, well done!

Building, as I have mentioned already, the game really just consists of Terrain and water, the boats are nice and details with monster rockets that come out of those pirate cannons. And they work rather well for a server-side script. The graphic on this game is also good, the Minimap looks almost HD and so does the bubble. The photos the creator used were very high quality, and really helped me see the game in the full light it deserved.

Dun, dun, dun, it's that time of the review again... BORING OLD STATS.

Scripting: 10/10
Very manipulative, maybe not the best. But very manipulative and smooth.

Tools: 0/10
This game doesn't really have tools. :P

Development: 10/10
The terrain and the boats with the ROBLOX water and bubble make the game a reality, a very simple reality.

Problems: 10/10
Not that I know of is there any problems.

Difficulty: Intermediate
You better be prepared, because those vicious ninjas on the boats aren't willing to give up.

Front Cover: 7/10
No video, sadly. But it shows gameplay.

Fun Filling: AMAZING!
It's really fun killing users. (Don't report me :P)

Thought: 7/10
Was thought about to an extent. But could be better.

Overall: 8/10
Nice creation, keep it up.

Suggestions:

  • Be able to eat cookies that make you kamikaze.

Tween Position & Size

Before anything, I did post this by my own accord. Because I thought you, the readers would want to hear from me ASAP!

Tweening position:

script.Parent.Frame:TweenPosition(UDim2.new(0.5, 0, 0.5, 0))

This would put the frame in the parent of the script to the position of 5 by 5, also meaning that you would not have to use any long scripts.

Lets take a closer look...

script.Parent.Frame:TweenPosition(UDim2.new(0.5, 0, 0.5, 0))

'script.Parent.Frame' - locating the frame.

:TweenPosition() - the method used to move a gui to a position in a manner smooth and risk-free.

UDim2.new(0.5, 0, 0.5, 0) - defining the position you want the gui to be at by the end of the tweening.

Tweening the position is one of the most easy ways to move a Gui smoothly. Even an idiot could use this method. It helps a lot, you could also choose the manner you wish for it to enter, you could make it bounce with 'script.Parent.Frame:TweenPosition(0.5, 0, 0.5, 0), "Out", "Bounce")'. This would bounce the gui when it reaches it's destination. Although the bounce method doesn't give of a sound unless you have scripted it, it's still a very nice way to have a Gui move itself in.
.
Tweening can also involve size, even sizeandposition, but I think if you know Size and Position, you could easily use "PositionAndSize". Size is the same as position, but instead of saying TweenPosition, the hardest bit is changing TweenPosition to TweenSize.
Both TweenSize and TweenPosition come in handy when making a game, the enums are even better. With Tweening, you can choose how long you with the gui to take before it reaches it's destination, for a smoother tween you could set it as a high number of seconds, whereas if you were using a small time you would reach the destination quicker.

Suggestions

With this method, I personally have a suggestion that they make "TweenPartPosition" and "TweenPartSize" making it easier for us, the users to move bricks to a different position in a better transition than making everything run from a for loop or so.

My Opinion

In my opinion, Gui Tweening is a great addition to ROBLOX, and they should carry on making options like it. Great job!

Review News

Sorry about my delay, I should have one up and running today, I have actually been really busy with programming, I mean, yesterday I learnt a whole programming language in one day. And I was too tired to carry on blogging for that day. So if you are reading this tomorrow then there's probably a review up. :)

Hat Review: Jellyfish

Hey all, Rob498 here, I know it's been a while since I've last
posted, but I'm going to start posting more frequently from now on, so stay tuned!

____

So today I decided to look at a very random hat. The Jellyfish.

Basic Stats:
Created: 8/10/2010
Favourited: 844 times.
Total Sold: 2,164.
Genre: Comedy.
Description: "The most delicious kind of fish ever. I hope mine is strawberry flavoured!"


Mesh: 9/10

I personally think the mesh looks great, the many tentacles give it a lot
of realism, while it's body(?) has a nice sort of mushroom shape to it.

Texture: 7/10

I honestly thought jellyfish were more of a transparent thing more than
a bright, purpley, ball of jelly. But nonetheless, the details on the top
and the colour changes throughout the hat make it looks pretty neat.

Creativity: 10/10

What can I say, this hat is totally bonkers and hilarious. It just
looks plain silly on your character, and makes you look like
the goof of the gang. I think it was a well thought up hat idea.

Price: 9/10

At a dandy 70R$, you can't really go wrong. Unless you're someone
who finds trouble saving up robux and spends them straightaway,
it should definetely be within your price range.

Overall: 8.75/10

I think that this hat is a very cute little novelty item, and at the price it's
at, it won't take a big chunk out of your robux. A very solid item.


Warning: Roblox News are not responsible for any stings, rashes, or
pain received when wearing this hat on your avatars head. Thank you.

Gear Review: Telamonster: The Chaos Edge

Telamonster: The Chaos Edge


Hello Readers! Today I will be reviewing the brand new and awesome sword, Telamonster: The Chaos Edge! I will break this review down into several parts including Mesh, Texture, Controls & Abilities, Money Value, and Enjoyment! 

Mesh: 9/10
This sword's mesh is VERY detailed with precision on the bottom part. It is a huge and awesome sword. On the bottom it is the casual handle, but seems too small for a sword this big. Next up is the most detailed part. At the bottom there are many spikes in a strange pattern. Even though I can't tell what they are forming or anything, I'll call them the "spikes on spikes". You can really tell whoever made the mesh knows how to make meshes, as I picky me couldn't find a single mistake. Next, the blade. It isn't the most amazing blades of all time, but it is ok because of the texture. In short words, this sword is flawless.

Texture: 10/10
Just like the mesh, so many details are on this sword's texture. The bottom spikes and stuff are carefully detailed with a strange drawing. It looks like some ancient sword of doom or something. The blade has a cool fire thing going on. Also the bottom and the blade have a kind of shiny effect too. I say it is just the perfect texture for an awesome word like this.

Control & Abilities: 10/10
The abilities this sword has are AWESOME! First off, it is a flaming sword. There are 4 things you can do with this sword.

  1. Attack with left click.This is the usual default attack. 
  2. Make a fiery lunge by double clicking. This does 10 damage per touch.
  3. Catch a player in awesome red thorns by lunging and pressing Q. The sky will become a sunset and the player will take 27 damage in 3 seconds.
  4. Cut wings off a flying player! During my test, the other player was using these wings. I'm not sure about other wings, but it worked with these. While the other player is flying, aim and press E to send a fireball at them which knocks off their wings and does 50 damage upon falling. During my test however, it did not do the 50 damage to the other player.
As you can see, this is one of the deadliest swords on Roblox.

Money Value: 7/10
The price on this sword is a little too expensive for a price by ROBLOX. It was originally 30,000R$ and now is selling for around 50,000R$. It is quite expensive but if you got it at first, you would get some good profit from this. The sword is really cool though, making it higher in value.

Enjoyment: 10/10
This sword is AWESOME and defiantly fun to use! I took more time then needed during my test just messing around with it. Yes, the other person seemed to have been irritated, but they are my best friend. :) If I had lot's of money, this is a sword I would want to get.

Overall: 9/10
Overall, this sword is the most fun sword you will get. No questions asked. I say you got  a lot of money and are willing to buy a cool sword like this, go ahead. You won't regret it at all. I had lot's of fun testing it and I am sure you will too!

Triple Halloween Madness Hat Reviews #3 Eerie Vs. Darkseed

Hello Readers! Welcome to part 3 of the Tripple Halloween Madness Hat Reviews! I should call it Quadruple Halloween Madness Hat Reviews because this time, were reviewing two ROBLOX classics! It will be a pumpkin vs. pumpkin face off! First, Eerie Pumpkin Head!
Eerie Pumpkin Head

Mesh: 10/10
This mesh scream's pumpkin like no other ROBLOX pumpkin mesh! It is just like a rounded pumpkin shape you would carve for Halloween! The carvings on this pumpkin are pretty awesome! If you want to see them in detail, here is a picture of me wearing another pumpkin with the same mesh.

Texture: 10/10
It isn't a pumpkin. That's whats awesome about this hat. The outside is black (obvious) and the inside is green. (Obvious) This is why this hat is so eerie! You can see though, a little mistake on the stem, as it is not all black. I don't know if it should be but it would make sense. I am not sure if anyone else caught that though. The rest of the pumpkin, well made.

Enjoyment: ?/10
Honestly, I can't even say what it is like to have this hat. So little have it and I have never had it. I would be EXTREMELY happy to own a VERY rare hat like this one. It looks awesome on your character and fits just perfectly over your awesome head. It would be best to color your head green too.

Overall: 10/10
Perfect, expensive hat for Halloween! I don't think you would have this, but you never really know. This pumpkin is for all the green lovers out there! (If you have it that is...)

Darkseed The Fallen

Mesh: 10/10
Same reasons as Eerie Pumpkin Head. It fits the theme perfectly and to me, the mesh is flawless. It also is not just some simple round ball with holes and a stem, it is obvious it was carefully created back in the old days of ROBLOX history!

Texture: 10/10
It's the same as Eerie, but purple. Why is it so much better you ask? Everyone loves purple. It has a nice light shade of pink too. The texture is very simple though, black and some purple. I have noticed on many of these pumpkin's stem, it is slightly messed up. I don't know if this is intentional or not but it is not that noticeable.

Enjoyment: 10/10
It is a much more affordable hat (100,000 tickets/10,000 robux every Halloween) that everyone will love. Only about 800 have it, and it is awesome to have a rare hat like this one. Also, all pumpkins look goof on the character's head, especially if your head is colored the same as the inside. It also has more to it than just the pumpkin like a pendant and a book!

Overall: 10/10
I would LOVE to purchase this this Halloween! The best part is that if it goes on sale this year, the Trade Currency will explode with people trading robux into tickets, so take advantage of that time! It could also go limited, in which it would sell for LOTS. I truly can't wait for this year's Halloween! 

Which is better?

"Chubbs21, the overall's are both 10/10! How can one be better that the other?"
Well, let's ask LMaD to find out which is better!

RainbowFist: "Eerie"
rjcard12: "Eerie pumpkin, what are you thinking!"
SuddenRush12: "Eerie Pumpkin Head"

That's that! Eerie Pumpkin Head wins! Thanks for reading!

Quadruple Review Week: Review #2

     For my second review of this long week, I decided to review "Legend's Arena III: Sage of War." The objective of this game is to kill a bunch of random players with various weapons and with different classes. Yes, I continue to feel as powerful as ever, with all new parts for my PC. I apologize for the delay, I've been busy with homework and more. Let's begin this review, shall we?

Project Sage of War_Image


Thumbnail of "Legend's Arena III: Sage of War" a game by user HylianLegend.

     I took a step inside of this place and was immediately introduced with a GUI with the logo for the game. A really good logo I should add. It then introduces you with a GUI button which let's you click on. It says "Play," obviously you click on it. You then are introduced with another GUI, oh goodie! (I don't like this many guis).
This terrible amazing GUI has all of the classes and their descriptions. To top it all off, it also includes an animated photo of them (as seen above). I decided to choose the swordsman, hoping I would begin to own every user inside of the game, I was completely wrong.

     First off, you have an "Energy" bar on the right hand side of your screen, this indicates how much energy is left inside of you. So, I find a user and start swinging my sword at him, little did I know what would happen next. I swing the sword, and as I'm swinging, the energy bar level goes down. As I run out completely of energy, I lose control of my sword. My sword now has a delay of swinging speed. It's good, because it makes it more realistic. There are also some items on the ground for you to pick up, but not just any items.

     These items are rotating and they are in the air, they are decals. This makes the game feel more like a FPS that is usually on PC and has those floating objects (Team Fortress 2). This game has lured me into it even more. I was getting completely owned, on account that I didn't know the game that well. So, I stopped playing after I died thousands of times.


Scripting: 10/10. For obvious reasons.
Tools: 10/10. All of the necessary tools that are required to own others are provided.
Building: 10/10. The map(s) are great. Nicely done.
Community Enjoyment: 10/10. Many users play this daily and enjoy it very much.
Originality: 8/10. Decently original, I may have seen a place like this once before, however.
Deals with Problems: 10/10. Not problems dealt with.
Reviewer's Experience with Lag: 10/10. No lag experience. Maybe because of my internet speed.
Difficulty: Medium. Not too hard, but can be hard at times. So, I'll do Medium.
Reviewer's Enjoyment: 9/10. The only thing I didn't enjoy was being killed, other than that, great game.
Reviewer's Recommendation: 9/10. You must be a decent sword fighter to own.
Thumbnail's Review: 10/10. Lures the user in. Like it did to me. There are some trailers to this so, new rating? Yes!
Trailer Review (NEW!): 10/10. Nice trailer. (Whenever there isn't a trailer included, I'll put something like 0/10 or something.
Scenery: 10/10. Decent scenery.

Overall: 9.5/10. Great game, I enjoyed it very much. However, the only problem was that you can get owned so fast. The game is empty often.

At the time of this review, this place had 451,609 visits, and 12,786 favorites, it was last updated 3 months ago.

Thanks and have fun.

Roblox Adventure 3: The Rise of Nobeesi Review

Nobeesi, no BC. Get it?
Everyone once and a while someone stumbles on something incredibly amazing. Something wonderfully well-made. Something that you can tell took ages to make. Then you find something like that only it's fun to play too!

Gameplay 10/10
 The basic goal of this game is to collect all 45 tokens through seven worlds. There are six tokens in each world. Four are taken from extremely clever obstacle courses, one is taken from someone who needs a certain item, and the last one is from getting all three blue coins that are hidden in the level. There is also a hidden token in the hub or main area that teleports you to the other worlds along with 3 blue coins you can buy. The last one is achieved by defeating Nobeesi the embodiment of all that is evil in ROBLOX. He commands all the noobs in ROBLOX and also looks kinda creepy.

Effort 10/10
There is tons of effort put into this. All the levels are completely unique and different in their own way. They all have different moods and the worlds get progressively harder and more interesting as you collect tokens. There are also decals spread throughout the worlds that add a lot to the game. The boss fights are also incredibly unique and well scripted. There's just a lot of different things the creator has done to add that little touch that turns a good game into a great game.

Creativity 10/10
I've looked at the creators other two ROBLOX Adventure games and they're both extremely well made and totally worth playing although they're all completely unique in their own way.

Overall 10/10

Suggestions
  • Try and make some of the turning motor parts a bit more smooth 
  • Fix the super sword jump glitch
  • Make Nobeesi's lair pink and rainbowy
  • Also, make Nobeesi a brony.
Tips
  • Remove your hats, and with the sword equipped double click and jump. This will make you jump incredibly high and can be used to skip some parts of the level.
  • Get the most expensive weapon you can as quickly as possible, then save up for the the blue coins
  • Try and get all six tokens in a world before you move on. This will make it easier to keep track of where you need to go.
 If you want your place reviewed simply contact Banjobug on twitter or send me a private message on ROBLOX. The next post could be about your place! I'll be glad to give you ideas on your place and help make it better. Also, if you find a place that is absolutely awful and on the front page send me a PM and I might make a RANT about it!

Also, you should follow me on twitter even if you don't have a RANT or review request! Sometimes I invite my followers to go to places with me to help review them.

BC Loyalty Bonus: Phasing Out


The BC Loyalty Bonus was one of the great extra features the ROBLOX Developers gave to users who paid for premium membership. However, never strictly being an official feature, the Bonus was more of an 'experiment' according to the developers. The Loyalty Bonus was an extra percentage of Robux paid on top of your Builder's Club Stipend of R$15 a day. If you had a BC membership for a long time, like myself, the multiplier for the Loyalty Bonus could be up to 3.0x. This meant I received a grand total of R$45 a day (including my original 15R$ Stipend).

This has a noticeable impact on the amount of items I could purchase. Originally with 15R$ a day I would have to save up for a couple of weeks to purchase an item, but with the extra 30R$ a day, I could buy more hats and gear. This was also aided by the fact that ROBLOX kept the pricing of most hats fairly low - there was no increase in average item prices after the Loyalty Bonus had been released.

However. Because of this increase in daily Robux BC members received, too much Robux was being injected into the economy - similar to quantitative easing. All of a sudden larger numbers of premium members had thousands of R$ stored on their accounts. This did take a while to make a large impact, but after a year of the Loyalty scheme being in place, problems were beginning to rear their heads. For example, items were selling very large amounts of copies and Limited prices began to skyrocket. Now, some Limited item prices were affected by the decreasing supply of copies (deleted copies, users quitting, copies reaching owners who does not wish to sell/ NBC users), but a large percentage was down to the Loyalty Bonus. Everyone had more currency so they could afford spending more on Limited items.

This is where the 'phasing out' of the Loyalty Bonus program comes in. By reducing the amount of extra Robux a player receives, ROBLOX are removing Robux from circulation and thus attempting to bring the economy back to what it was like in 2010.

How is it being phased out? 

The program is only being completely phased out for new Builder's Club members who will not receive a bonus. Current BC members have had their multiplier reset but will still continue to receive a small bonus every day. Every month the bonus will increase by 4% to a maximum of 20% after 5 months.

The notification message from ROBLOX can be seen below:


I am sad to see the Loyalty Bonus program change so drastically, but I do understand the reasoning behind the decision. And as many users stated: ROBLOX did not include it on the BC features list, so it was not an official feature and therefore it is perfectly acceptable that they are removing it for new BC members.

Thanks for reading!

LMaD Interview #1: noahnightflame

This will be a series of interviews I make with a bunch of LMaDers. This first one just so happened to be a very successful LMaDer, noahnightflame. Here is an interview I had with him. The first few questions were just generic ROBLOX interview questions. Towards the 5th question, I started asking LMaD questions. Enjoy!














Q: Why did you join ROBLOX? When?

A: Well back in 2010 i saw someone at my local libary playing. I thought it was a dumb game at first. Then I went on the computer he was at then started playing. Then played ever since. 

Q: What do you like about ROBLOX that other games don't have?

A: Well. It's the variety of what you can do. You can make money, make games, and just play games. Just makes everything fun when you are basically controllng what you do.

Q: What was your favorite game when you first joined?

A: I don't really remeber what was the first game I played. But I enjyed any fighting games.

Q: What is your favorite game now? 

A: Well I do enjoy the classics like underground wars and stuff like that but i enjoy hanging out at merleys trade hangout.

Q: When did you begin fourming at LMaD? 

A: I think I joined later 2010. I first learned about foruming when i was in R.A.T and needed 100 forum post for a promo or something like that.

Q: Why do you forum at LMaD? 

A: I forum on LMaD because we are like a huge family who enjoy to have fun. It's also great for advice in trading and stuff. I just find it fun.

Q: What was your first limited?

Triple Halloween Madness Hat Reviews #2: Purple Perfection!

Purple Perfection

    Hello Readers! As part two of the Tripple Halloween Madness Hat Reviews, today I will be reviewing the Purple Perfection! Some might not say it is a Halloween hat, but it's got the colors so why not?

Mesh: 7/10
Simple. Very Simple. It could have been done better, but I guess it fits. The mesh on the very rim of the bottom slightly messes with the texture, but I think I'm the only one to notice. The rest of the mesh is not that bad.

Texture: 9/10
"Why so high? It's just a basic purple pattern with a green stripe."
Well, this is one of those hats where you can completely change the theme of the hat with a  retexture. The possibilities are almost endless. Make it a regular sun hat, Christmas themed, winter themed, a different Halloween theme, crimson theme, anything! All you retexture artists start making something cool with this!

Money Value: 7/10
This 250R$ hat is ok, not the best wide-rimmed hat but it's not bad on the texture side. I would like to see some artists retexture this into a Christmas one.

Enjoyment: 6/10
This hat isn't the very best hat out there, but it's not the worst. It looks like something you would wear to a fancy Halloween party.

Overall: 7.5/10
Again, this is a very interesting yet simple hat for all the fancy robloxians.

Thanks for reading!

Triple Halloween Madness Hat Reviews #1: Spiral Sorcery

Spiral Spider Sorcery

    Hello readers! Welcome to part one of this three part Halloween Hat Madness Reviews! Today I am reviewing the hat Spiral Spider Sorcery.

Mesh: 10/10
It is exactly what the tripple S name says it is. A spiral. It is an interesting mesh twist to the common witch/wizard hats on ROBLOX. The hat's mesh has rounded edges like it is a basic kind of mesh, not some complex super realistic hat that doesn't fit in on ROBLOX. I really like the little spider at the end of it too.

Texture: 9/10
The texture is basic but fits. An easy nice shade of purple with the regular colors of a belt of hats. It can't get more basic than this.

Money Value: 10/10
We all know when a price is just right, and this is one of those hats. 125R$ is the perfect amount for this awesome witch hat.

Enjoyment: 9/10
If you are looking to get a cool witch hat for your halloween costume, this is it. Here is what twitter thinks:

@IBarrageI says: "Odd, very odd. But not very imaginative. Fairly cheap though, you get what you pay for."

@Phantomazing says: "Looks okay. Not something I'd like to buy, but the spider on the hat's tip looks really cool."

@Gennix11 says: "It looks bosssss, I will buy."

@ RBX_Zakary99 says: "could be better"

and lastly, @arbirator says: "It's pretty awesome"

Overal: 10/10
A great little hat for your costume!
