map notes
Late night surprise...well depending on your timezone I guess. Anyway, here's Act 2 of the Industrial Zone.  
This map was inspired by this pic: https://31.media.tumblr.com/c6d80243d7f789f9fcc113545a6e393c/tumblr_myans1Hsmc1sjyxc7o1_500.gif and Scrap Brain Zone and I guess the Chemical Plant Zone again.
I hope you guys enjoy this map.

Thank you. It took a while to make because I couldn't decide on the map's layout.

Ok your preview pic looks EXACTLY like the one for the inspiration. Absolutely incredible Meark!

Maps like this make me think of how much cooler this game could be if they kept adding things into the level editor :O

Thanks Towelie. :D I wish they would put the doors back in. I thought it would be fun to make maps with. I kinda like the challenge that a set amount of props gives. It helps focus my creativity.

No birds? I can only give you 12/10 for this then

I was thinking about adding polygon emitters or something but then I figured it would lag the hell out of this map. I was already worried about there being too many props that could cause lag.

Hahah that would be pretty cool but I don't know programming so I dunno how helpful I would be to the team. xD

Amazing visuals, wish it was longer.

I second this! A +1 minute Meark map is the dream.
Meark
said Feb 4, 2014
I'll try to make a longer map next time, but I'm also a fan of fast dashing maps. It also takes me a while to think of map layouts that aren't boring.

Really awesome also your work with the sound.
Meark
said Feb 4, 2014
Thanks. :D I never really hear that much ambiance in levels but maybe that's because the music is usually loud so I thought to tone it down a bit like in Coast.

Oh my, that is really breathtaking.
Meark
said Feb 4, 2014
I'm glad you think so. It's probably because of the pollution again. haha

And I'm going to keep doing it until I run out of ideas. xD

How do you even make this. My brain hurts. D:
Meark
said Feb 4, 2014
I start with an idea or something I like and try to make a level out of it. I usually get unhappy with how things are going and always change the map up. x_x

Maybe stream making maps as Towelie does? I'm sure people would love to watch that :P
.
said Feb 4, 2014
Yeah! I would love a tutorial or two :)
Meark
said Feb 4, 2014
I dunno how to stream and I don't have any recording devices, but I have thought about making some sort of level editor 101 tutorial. There are some things I'm still figuring out like cameras and stuff. Also I usually take a while to decide on map layouts, but maybe I can try to do one directed towards just map decoration or something.

You can ask Shurykan to give to the smaller details but I just run OBS and select the dustforce program and it streams it to my twitch account. Of course you have to enter your streaming key but that's just cut and paste :)

Wow, the visuals are absolutely breathtaking. Fun map as well.

Never stop mapping, Meark.
Meark
said Feb 4, 2014
Thank you. :D As long as I have ideas and you guys enjoy them I don't think I will stop mapping. :)

Dang, this is so cool!  I'll be an outlier here and offer a bit of criticism, though :)

I think interest point nodes in your camera path and dynamics in zoom (even just a subtle increase or decrease on certain sections) would go a long way in highlighting the awesome visuals.  Pick out some visual foreground highpoints with relatively confined flow (for instance, the tower section with the two cogs) and place an interest point there and have the camera change zoom slightly.  This let's your eyes take in the scenery, as well as prevents the camera from moving backwards when your path loops back around over itself (which I find a bit jarring).

All your maps have had spectacular set piece visuals, use the camera to really highlight them and make them that much better!
Meark
said Feb 8, 2014
Thank you for the criticism, it is much appreciated. I haven't really figured how cameras work and everything so I found your advice to be very helpful. :D

This has always been one of my favorite maps, and seeing it 1-bombed has broken my heart.
