map notes
"It's awfully cold outside. Please, come in, make yourself at home..."

A wintery level for the mapmaking contest. Thanks to Ratingus for his feedback, and props to anyone who can find the secret fountain.

The map is great, it's basically all perfect. Level design, any%, setting, decorations... I'm surprised there aren't comments.
The only thing is that I found the fog trigger a bit too white, especially on the layer 19.

But maybe it's just my monitor. Even with "Vanilla Filling" I hadn't always optimal visibility but when I watched that map ,with a tablet, on a twitch stream... it was fine.

I really like the map.  It managed to still be fun and unique throughout, but fit within the bounds of the map making competition's guidelines.  The one part I don't like is the air control over horizontal spikes.  The fall there is very sudden, and that type of obstacle feels very out of place with the rest of the map.  It just doesn't look like it fits either.

I used similar sections in my last map, but it fits in there because that is already an air control style super difficult virtual map.

Great map, had a really nice route and the decorations were very pretty.

I mostly liked it, but I had a few 'usability' issues:

I found it hard to see the dust - okay when looking at it, but just not obvious where it is.  Same thing with some walls - I just ran into them expecting to go through.  I don't mind if you blame this on my colour-blindness...

I think the camera could move a bit further forwards in some cases - for example, the part after the dust on the ceiling above spikes where you jump up to a wall and gargoyle, I just jumped off the ledge on the right.
