map notes
Had another idea for a map so I hurried to finish. Enjoy. :)
Already recommended this song but It really fits the map well.
There are also 3 secrets so enjoy exploring.

i like your maps:) only played murasaki(one of the first few custom maps i installed!) and awkward recently. never really got far on murasaki because i suck but i plan to go back and SS awkward soon.

Oh pshaw your maps don't look like a sack of poop.

Vox's maps look like a sack of GOLDEN POOP EXTRACTED FROM A PONY MADE OF DIAMONDS

Especially サんかく, oh my gooooooood (こんいちわ!)

:'D thanks, Sivade! i really appreciate the kind words. (hint: murasaki is easier than awkward imo; sankaku is even easier, and refract is the easiest)

psht Meark in comparison they do.

that aside, this level is gorgeous as always. i love the part with the lanterns hanging above the river; so picturesque. amazing.

one gameplay quibble: imo, some of the turkeys are a little bit too close to the ends of the dash ramps. i think you could have widened everything horizontally just a little bit and it would be perfect.

Looking at some runs I think you're right. Didn't think it would be a problem.

this level reminds me of some counter-strike maps like inferno / italy.
but i didnt like the flow of it tbh :-/

Was it the boat part that you didn't like?
Superkid
said Sep 8, 2013
well it starts with the first entity. u hit it and you jump -> you just crash on the bottom and walk. you dash -> you just walk until you can jump on the slope. maybe i suck and cant get the right order to get a groundboost goin. it continues with the book.
pls dont get me wrong this is a great level! i wish i could do stuff like you do! :-)
Meark
said Sep 8, 2013
The part with the book, if you get a good slope dash and then jump and hard down it should be fine. I guess you have to be really precise. x_x
It's okay I like the feedback. I feel like my backgrounds are always what carry my levels instead of the gameplay. :|
Superkid
said Sep 8, 2013
yea i got the book. it's actually pretty cool after a ceiling run. i keep trying to get a smooth run ;-)
Meark
said Sep 8, 2013
I think with the first entity you got too much height and crashed down but you have a really great run!
Superkid
said Sep 8, 2013
i'm pretty sure you can do it atleast 1 second faster. towelie / seight / kuro will find out :-)
but i need to stop, dash levels hurt my small finger pretty bad^^ i'm goin to find the secrets!

i tryed a small jump + air jump. crashing too :-/

said Sep 8, 2013
I'm sure they will with ground dashes. xD I really like dash levels. Strengthens my pinky. hahaha

Another awesome map Meark, good job!

It's really hard to see what tiles are layer 19 :(
Meark
said Sep 8, 2013
The darkest one.
Magnetbrainn
said Sep 8, 2013
Not much of a contrast difference, in my opinion

Only other issue I have with the level (the other is the turkey issue Vox has), it's otherwise amazing! <3
Meark
said Sep 8, 2013
Ah okay, thank you. I guess I should have brightened the mid and background a bit more.

Did you guys find the 3 secrets?
voxanimus
said Sep 8, 2013
found two of them! i found the green-haired girl and the old man who uses Southern American contractions ;)
Meark
said Sep 8, 2013
Hahaha Well you know he's a tourist. xD
Superkid
said Sep 8, 2013
i guess falling out of the map is no secret :P
ok i found gordon, green climber and this guy above the clock :-)
Meark
said Sep 8, 2013
Oh gosh where did you fall out?! D: I thought I covered my bases.
Congrats you found the secrets. (\ ( ' u') /)

Edit: Found it. Oh man didn't think that was reachable.

said Sep 8, 2013
really easy on the left side to fall forever :p
Meark
said Sep 8, 2013
Yeah I didn't really test that part with the old man. hahah
Superkid
said Sep 8, 2013
shouldnt be a big problem though :D

said Sep 8, 2013
you can do it on dustkid too

said Sep 8, 2013
Curse her multiple jumps. xD Oh well.

It's also possible to just BARELY get super (as in the only dust left is one hit on the last gargoyle), but I couldn't abuse it to get on top of the clocktower (if it has a top..?)
Meark
said Sep 8, 2013
Did you talk to the tourist up there?
WBojangles
said Sep 9, 2013
Yeah but I mean ABOVE that. The triangle thingy
Meark
said Sep 9, 2013
Oh. There is a top but nothing is really there. It's just the tip of the spire.

said Sep 8, 2013
those sunshades look awesome btw!

said Sep 8, 2013
Thanks. :)

I don't get it, why did people rate this map so low? Sure there are some visibility problems but it's still a good map...
voxanimus
said Sep 9, 2013
there's been a lot of troll voting going on lately; in the past, it was almost impossible for a map of any measurable quality to get lower than a 4. and this map is certainly of measurable quality.
Meark
said Sep 9, 2013
I've noticed the troll voting. Certainly sucks since there have been good maps lately that don't deserve the score they got. Didn't think people would do that here.

said Sep 9, 2013
i think news of the update has drawn a lot of people to the atlas that don't normally come here

The use of parallax on this map is amazing.
Meark
said Sep 9, 2013
Thank you. :) I really wanted to give it the depth of a city.
