Interview with Sherknock!

Today I bring you an interview with Sherknock; an avid ROBLOX forumer with 15,249 posts to his name (as of writing)! A theme discussed throughout is improvements that could be made to the ROBLOX experience. 

Q, When did you join ROBLOX? What were your first thoughts of the game? 
SherknockA. I joined ROBLOX in 2007, on the account Flameman40. I thought ROBLOX was cool for a while then I started to make games.

Q. What was the most enticing aspect of the site when you first joined? Why?
A. Building games, because I had no idea what I was doing. 

Q. What did ROBLOX offer that other MMOs and sandboxes didn't?
A. Awesome hats. And a studio to build with blocks and meshes.

Q. Do you believe all free to play MMOs/sandboxes offer as much free content as ROBLOX does? (in terms of free items, clothing, games and asset creation)
A. No, because ROBLOX is a legit building game. They tell you what you are going to get when you sign up. If you don't like what you have then get some Premium Membership.

Q. What are your views on dynamic lighting? What could it be used for in the future?
A. Dynamic Lighting is one of the best updates since user-created games. It could possibly be used for design. Such as clothing and weapons.

Q. If you were a ROBLOX client engineer for the day, what artistic tools could you add to Studio 3.0 to improve user experience? 
A. Probably a mesh making studio installed into ROBLOX Studio 3.0. Or Anim8or.

Q, If you were a ROBLOX intern, what project would you work on? 
A. I'd work on removing the bad games and spams. And I'd work with the community. People want real things? Hey, let's throw some call of duty into a game. Want classics? Let's re-build Crossroads.

Q. What upcoming features are you most looking forward too? Why?
A. I'm not really uo-to-date with the blog, but I can't wait for the in-game Catalog and all that.

Q. If you were to add features to Studio 3.0, what would they be?
A. Mesh creating. Tutorial on how to build and script. And 3D/2D plugins.

Q. Where do you see ROBLOX in 5 years time? 
A. Being one of the top 5 biggest MMO sites in the world.

Thanks for reading!
