I was recently scrolling on tiktok until i came across this post, talking about the new halloween update.
They say that the developers were very lazy only adding pumpkins and changing the colour of the grass, but, that is not the worst thing yet. They went on roblox studio and searched up “Pumpkin” and the 3rd result was the one they used. If you look at it, it looks different because they changed the size of it. They also have 2B visits and they are using free models?!?!
And I have also heard in the past that Da Hood used free models before?
What is your opinion on this?
I actually came across this tiktok aswell and it interested me but I didn’t think much of it. At the end of the day we see it all the time, games that use free models or have terrible development continue to soar the top pages (such as PetsimulatorX and Brookhaven).
Also I don’t see why people are making such a big deal out of it. Not every developer/development team cares to do a Halloween update. Even if it is one of the biggest games. At the end of the day. It’s their game. If you dont want to play it don’t play it but you don’t have to accuse them of being lazy for adding models that have been uploaded to the catalog for a reason (to be used by others for free)
This brings me to two other points. Some people dont celebrate Halloween due to their faith.
And personally I’m not too sure what benefit a Halloween update would bring to the game/players. Are people really that desprate to see jack o lanterns being hung from a house in a game ?
Forgive me for my rant lol but I feel like we set expectations of our developers/3D Molders/ Scripters/Artists and even GFX makers too high. At the end of the day there could be thousands upon thousands of reasons why they chose not to add this update.
I think that because the update was for Halloween and it’s only temporary, it’s ok. However, using free models for the main game, maybe they could have put some effort into that, especially as it’s been out for a while now.
However, the toolkit is there; if no one uses it, then it is pointless. It’s a place for developers to share models and scripts.
So as it’s only a temporary update, I don’t mind that they used free models; who knows, maybe they were under time pressure or just too busy to make a big Halloween update that’s only going to stay there for a week or so.
It’s hard to say if free models make you a bad game designer/creator. They never claimed it as their own models & it was never really a full update, as 25 mentioned above you can stop playing the game if you don’t like it.
But sometimes, it’s not quality, BrookHaven was and is one of the biggest games on roblox, if you think about it that, the game is practically built around the catalouge and on top of the toolbox, the only reason people play Brookhaven is to roleplay or meet their friends or do other things that you can do in brookhaven - not because it’s a quality game.
No hate to brookhaven creators.
