map notes
"Who cares about putting it back together?"

   A long time ago, I made a map that really needed multiple copies of the tutorial triggers to forcefully manage a player's supers and prevent them from basically having a fully charged super all the time.  We had found a way to move tutorial triggers into new maps, but it was impossible to duplicate them.  I did the only implementation of the map I could: forcing supers with enemies out of attack reach.  I could not have predicted that the eventual Dustforce DX update would add the very triggers I so desperately needed...  Honestly, I should've fixed this map the day DX released, but I finally got around to it.  The original map has been deleted.

List of changes:
-DX Triggers always give the player a super in the sculpture rooms, and prevent the player from gaining super meter anywhere else
-Camera is more zoomed in (now 1200 for the entire map, and 1300 for the sculpture rooms)
-Camera is centered on the route, removed overabundance of camera nodes
-Fog trigger provides greater contrast with the background diamonds
-Corrected to left facing checkpoints where applicable
-Added checkpoint before the final fall in case you miss something on the way down
-Adjusted dust throughout map to make it much harder to lose your combo
-Minor alterations to many rooms, improving consistency across map
-Reduced difficulty to reasonable levels (proper ledges after each checkpoint, more space in some rooms, and removal of some spikes)
-The final fall is even prettier than it was before!
-The map is still exceedingly long.  Some people really like long maps and told me not to change it.

Who can figure out the overall theme of the rooms, and the specific theme of each room?  The colors are a hint.

I caught the elemental nature of the design right away from the first one.

Red: Fire
Orange: Earth
Yellow: Lightning
Green: Plant
Blue: Ice
Purple: Air

Super triggers in sculpture rooms do not work for some reason.

Unless it only gives you super when you enter the room...

Yes, only when you enter the room.  Towelie, you may be interested to know that the developers added 3 triggers related to supers (called specials ingame):  One allows meter gain, one disallows meter gain, and one sets the meter to max.  There is no actual trigger that disables using a super, nor is there a trigger to forcefully set it back to zero.  I have to get the player under the no-meter-gain effect before they super the dustblocks or they get another free super.  It seems like there's one type of super trigger conspicuously absent from the editor, but the devs always structured their maps where this was all they needed.

I really liked this map when it was released and its way prettier and less irritating now.

cameras are wonky for me. i think this might be issues with DX vs non-DX, though. watch replay.

I very much wanted to know how this map would run in non DX.  I made sure the tags reflected the need for DX.  Thanks.
