    • Map Name: Positive
    • Creator: @Andyyy / Andyuu
    Currently, we have a map that already exists called positive and with the tradition of many Blockwars maps being remade, I've remade this one. I honestly felt that, while positive is already a fun map, it really lacks a lot of interesting areas, with only a square room for the flag and some weird stairs. So I've made it more interesting while looking much cooler.

    Starting from top down, you can see that I've changed the middle bit so that the stairs are gone and it's very small. I've done this as many games with lots of archers can quickly become campy with more shooting at each other than real pushes. While it is easy to knock people off here, player built structures can make up for this so blocks can be used to make an effective bridge to rush.

    2019-07-26_13.47.43.png
    Here's the first view from lower down. You can see I've decided to include pillars in the lower area, this is because this is the fastest route to the flag so needed something that can be used to defend with more easily.

    2019-07-26_13.47.59.png Then further into the building, the flag is placed directly in the middle. There's plenty of open space to pvp in with smooth contrasts between curved and straight sections.

    Next, going into one of the side rooms, this can be used to hide or sneak round to attack easily, with access to the back stairs that wrap around over to the other side.

    Here, we have this little wall that can be used to hide or sneak around, where above this the stairs are. It's on the blue side to show both sides are the same.
    2019-07-26_14.25.36.png The green blocks here signify where the powerups will spawn.
    2019-07-26_13.56.01.png Here's another view from the stairs. From the holes here, you can quickly jump down to attack or more often, defend the flag.

    2019-07-26_14.28.21.png The spawn room has had a look upgrade. Looking much more sci-fi in a way. I'm not sure but it's nice. On the sea lantern inside, this is where players will spawn, as they used to before.

    2019-07-26_14.35.15.png Here's our villager friend neatly tucked in the corner, looking trendy as always.

    I originally made this based off the pillars but it basically turned into positive so that's what it is now. Tell me what you think :D

    If there's anything you don't like about it, please tell me so I can look into changing it!!

    I see your back at it with another great map! I personally love it but I don’t see what makes it “positive” while I love the old map this would be a fine addition to Blockwars regardless. It’s a yes from me!

    I said this when you showed me the map for the first time, and I’ll say it again! This remake is awesome.
    It would really make positive more of a challenge for players, because right now it’s one of the easiest maps to win in. The pillars definitely are a great addition.
    I’m glad you removed the stairs because those are always problematic.
    And overall the aesthetic of the map is much more pleasing!

    The remake looks awesome! I hope it gets implemented one day! You definitely took time to improve this map, looks way better than before in my opinion.

    The map that already exists is like that. I don't want to completely change it as that's just a new map instead. I personally really like the squares and I think having every map the same is silly. For example, many maps use the red and blue terracotta as the main building block already and I don't want my maps to rehash the same colour scheme constantly.

    Blockwars core is featured at the moment. It's nothing like CTF but it's something lol.

    This comment :eek:k_hand:

    People don't seem too 'positive' about this change :thinking:
    To me it looks fine, I dunno, I feel like 50% of the people didn't understand this was a remake

    There has been a lot of fishy voting results on multiple block wars map submissions. (People making dumb or not logical reasons to vote no or purposely voting no) Mind taking a further look into it?

    That surely can't be the main reason.

    Should I resubmit this map ( without any changes unless there's anything anyone suggest I change ) with a comparison to the current positive and see how that goes? Changing it too much would stray it too far from the original and I feel like many people voted it down because of the inherent nature of the map which doesn't seem fair.

    Only resubmit if you make changes. Otherwise, it's pointless.

    Yeh that's what I'm thinking but I don't think it had it's chance. I think It's more than good enough ( have you seen Blockwars maps lol e.g. snowy ) and it deserves a chance. Luke said he thought it was good but the poor vote pulled it down. So I'm IDK.

    Any changes I make would just be for the sake of making changes so why make any changes at all?
