map notes
Sorry about the reupload, but thanks to Giamma for helping me find a hidden gargoyle messing up the completion rank. Hope this fixes it, but I don't know about the lag. Sorry for that.
I also heard you guys like secrets so I put four secret areas in here. Happy spelunking.

Edit: Impressive! All the visual elements are beautiful and new. Also the the level is fun and well designed.

I went into the editor with your map to try and figure out what was causing the lag, and I think it's caused by the giant number of items you made your details with.

I tried removing the trees at the end and it removed all lag, so sadly I guess that's a tradeoff for making your map look absolutely awesome :(

I also tried removing all the snow clouds and leaving the trees, but that didn't seem to affect the lag much.

Also the lag only happens when you pass through a checkpoint, I don't know why though.

Yeah I tried removing the clouds as well but I didn't think the trees would cause lag.

Disable checkpoints under the options remove the lag when you pass through a checkpoint. In my case, remains only a little bit of lag in the 2nd ramp  and at the end. Quite irrelevant.

i found a tunnel through the mountain and fell forever

said Jun 23, 2013
Haha oh my gosh where?!
Edit: I found that part. I think I accidentally made a zipper or something because it was closed off in the 19th layer. Weird.

Disabling Background and Midground under the Options seems to alleviate the lag somewhat.

I'll add to the pile of "it's beautiful." I'd like to see this as its own thing, actually..
But also the cave was really clever, the way you did the crystal shards.
Can someone with a supercomputer handy upload a video of playing through it casually? Not necessarily SS top time or anything. I just want to watch it play smoothly (not putting you down dev, the visuals were worth the performance loss)

I actually have a pretty up to date gaming rig and it still lags at checkpoints sadly . I don't think its a pc problem but just an overload of stuff within the game. :(
Meark
said Jun 23, 2013
Yeah It was fine the first few test runs until things started to glitch and slowed down in that 2nd ramp and the checkpoints and some of the props started to disappear. It was weird.

UPDATE: I just took a bath with an engineer. h.o.t.t.

Yessss. Loved it. Do you make games? This is inspiring me a lot and I think you would make a good designer

No but I've always wanted to make video games when I was younger. Thank you though. :D

Wonderful map, really something special. I don't even mind the lag, the stunning visuals more than make up for it. Lots of great little secrets to find too, the hot springs looked fantastic with the waterfalls in the background. FUCUCHCH. So good. First map I've really tried to get a good score on, made it to number 10 finally!
Meark
said Jun 24, 2013
Thank you. I was contemplating taking the checkpoints out because it really lagged but I thought people would be a bit upset redoing the whole level and I just hoped it didn't lag for everyone. I'm glad you enjoyed the level though. :D

it would be awesome if you made another level in this style, but less-fast paced. i'd love to just go slowly and marvel at the view.
Meark
said Jun 25, 2013
The one I'm currently working on is going to be a bit longer, but I made it a little fast-paced too. Haha maybe I should slow it down.

Yeh a bit laggy, but OMG holyyyyyyyy wow SO BEAUTIFUL. When I saw the crystals I was wowed! The hot spring secret made me LOL.

Luckily I fixed most of the lag to be in the update so the map should be playable.
