map notes
This is my first attempt at making a map, so sorry for the uglinnes and the lack of fancy camera work.  I took inspiration from some of my favorite custom levels, such as Upward Movment, Unbound, Love Descending, Dont Try To Hard, Aerial Assault and others.

Dustman and Dustgirl are recommended.

I'm open to all constructive critisicm, so feel free to comment on what I could've done better, any tips, etc..

Hope you enjoy!

Great, absolutely great first map. Liked it a lot and everything feels really natural =). Only thing I had done different is the dustblock things at the start, you can't go fullspeed groundboosting on them I feel, but really it isn't an actual issue. Cool bro!

Thanks!
I found the dustblock thing after I published the map, guess I didnt play test it enough.

Pretty good for a first map, i found it a bit annoying to not have spikes on the sides and underneath of the hexagonal tile sets however because you could easily spread dust onto bad spots on them. Just a thing to think about since spikes would almost be 100% nonlethal on those spots anyways 3/5

I changed my rating, for a first map this is for sure a 5/5, i'll be a bit harder on your next maps though :P

A thing to keep in mind is that you should have all the objects at the level end be attached to the end trigger. I don't think most people noticed because they probably saved their super.

Would have been better if you didn't take cues from Upward Movement. it's a good map :P

I think the only part I took from Upward Movment is the box filled with spikes you go in and around. Any pther similarities were total coincidence.
I wish I could be more creative, but making maps is hard.

Less death zones please :( any% was pretty boring when each time I found a potential shortcut was stopped only by some death zones

I didn't even think about that. I filled the map with deathzones becasue I hate mising a jump or something and having to fall 3 seconds before I die. I'll be more gentle with them next time.
