Place Review #1

May 29, 2009

Sorry for not posting lately, so… time to review Sword Fights of the Heights!

Q. What’s the point of the game?
Jeremjay24: The point is to go all around the map, getting cool weapons. Then you fight at the middle!

Q. What’s the best sword?

Jeremjay24: It depends. Ghostwalker makes you jump high and have low gravity, Ice Dagger pwns people by freezing, and dying shortly, with an amazing 1-hit KO! Firebrand is an average weapon that avoids freezing from the Ice Dagger. Illumina is just a very strong weapon, that shoots out sprinkles out of the sword. There are also medkits that heal you when selected and powerful orbs that do various things.

Q. Are there health boosts?

Jeremjay24: You can use medkits to heal you. God Armor times health by 2x.

Q. Are there free models?

Jeremjay24: Think it this way. It’s the coolest admin, free models? Give me a break. And things are hard to make. It would be funny him using free models.

More coming soon and stay tuned! Sneak peeks for “Tycoon – Live a Live at the Robloxian Neighborhood!”

Updates on Roblox

April 25, 2009

Trusses

newmaterials

2 admins, renderman and madrack, have been working on making a new type of brick. These trusses have little triangles, and the best part is that it’s a brick, not a model with a billion bricks in it. Telamon says the team is trying to make it easier for Robloxians to climb on and make them less dense than normal bricks.

Slate

textures

I think a bunch of you know the somewhat new “Material” dropdown on Roblox Studio. Roblox added wood recently, and now they added slate. The gray colors make it look like slate, green makes it look like textures of grass. You may use red as lava.

Lava

This isn’t a new feature, but if you are a Robloxian with hardly any scripting skills, look at the script of the day. It’s lava. It’s very useful on obstacle cources, but you can use it on other things.

function onTouch(part)
	local humanoid = part.Parent:FindFirstChild("Humanoid")
	if (humanoid ~= nil) then	-- if a humanoid exists, then
		humanoid.Health = 0	-- damage the humanoid
	end
end

script.Parent.Touched:connect(onTouch)

So, for education, I can’t let you just copy and paste. I’m gonna teach you what parts of the script does.

function onTouch(part) [If someone or something touches this brick]
local humanoid = part.Parent:FindFirstChild(“Humanoid”) [find out if it is a "Humanoid"]
if (humanoid ~= nil) then [ if a humanoid exists, then]
humanoid.Health = 0 [drop the health bar down to 0]
end
end

script.Parent.Touched:connect(onTouch)

That was enough learning from today!

Universal Connectors

universalconnectors

The universal connectors are a new type of texture. It has the texture “Studs” and “Inlet” on 1 side. This is most best if you put it in a house, ’cause it has textures commonly found on the ground.

Demo

d14e96c35c0bce34a5b93f2229647519

Telamon created a whole demo of slate and trusses. You can view it here.

New Tools

If you look into the “insert” button in the screen, you see a sidebar. Before, it had bricks of all different colors. Now, you can have a custom made ball (for example) in just a few seconds!
