map notes
My third map. It's been a while, eh?

Super easy and super short.

I wanted to make a forest level with a huge waterfall that you'd have to run behind until you got to the top. Then I discovered that it's really, really hard to make a forest map pretty when there's a massive blue slab coated in waterfall-emitters covering absolutely everything. So I salvaged the basic layout and went back to the water caves theme, which seems to work quite well. Prettying the map up took many more hours than I thought, but in the end I think it paid off.

Hopefully there aren't any spots where you can fall out of the world or get stuck, but it's easy to miss when you play your own map. Only problem is a slight background/world immersion break on one of the secrets, but it's not worth re-uploading to fix it.

Hope you enjoy it!

Edit - Tagged this map with the mapmaking contest tag because why not.

At first I thought this looked an awful lot like The Caverns.  Then I saw that you made that one as well.

Really good, though.  Loved it.

excellent work, man! Caverns is one of my favorite levels so it stands to reason that this one is awesome, too. i actually really think that this should go in the new DF; almost none of the suggested maps are this beginner-friendly. someone who'd never touched the game in their lives could still have good fun with this map. props.

Thanks! The new update was what drove me to finish this in the first place, so fingers crossed.
