    Yeah!!
    Some people may not know this, but... I was making this map, but! I got into huge trouble with a command that would be WAY too laggy. So I watched videos, and redesigned it! Viewers! How'd you like a slice o' THIS?

    2016-10-02_15.49.46.png 2016-10-02_15.49.58.png 2016-10-02_15.52.14.png 2016-10-02_15.51.47.png

    Q&A time!!!!

    1. Why is there sand there? There's no way to get back up from there!

    Exactly! It's quicksand! ........Implemented for the enjoyment of quicksand fans???
    I thought it'd boost the Wow factor...?

    With a reduced-lag command block, falling from the stage lands you in quicksand! Because of that, it takes longer to respawn because you're not supposed to be that stupid.

    Blehehehehehehe!

    2. Ummm... How do you get to the flag?
    You either go around your team's hole, and go up stairs, go into the hole's stairs and traverse the course, or go to the middle and get over the walls!
    Knock back is lethal on this course, so archer could work well, you need to have a sniper tower just in case!!

    3. Do you consider this a hybrid of other courses?

    Since it's finished, I reflect it's a hybrid of Retro 99, Double-Helix, Aces, and... I can't think of any more.

    4. Do you think people will be competitive on this course?
    I placed lots of space for people to build, so this will turn into a war, I hope!


    This is a void map, still!!
    Just because there's sand, doesn't mean you won't die from it!
    I'm smart with this hybrid idea, huh???

    It seems very small in my opinion, and lacks a bit of detail. Looks decent though! :)

    Like I said, knock-back's lethal. Plus, it's going to be fun watching people suffocate!
    When Youtubers record this stage, I'll SCREAAAMMMM!!!!

    PS. I feel this is as big as Retro 99.

    Meh, it lacks shape to be honest, and the choice of materials is not that good (normal glass? 1.10 blocks?)
    I can kinda, I repeat kinda see how this could have a good gameplay, but it's just so... lacking, of everything pretty much, that makes a map "decent" It doesn't have any detail mostly, shapes are often just cubes, glass looks horrible (try and use colored glass)
    Hope this helps.

    Ummm... I chose normal glass because I don't want to have people not be able to see their teammates... and I wanted to have a "neutral" arena. That's what the middle is for.

    Also, you're an 1.8 fanboy, aren't you? Kill-aura is absolutely terrible in 1.8, not to mention it doesn't have as many suiting blocks and scripting as this map needs.

    TBH you can see more clearly through colored black/white glass
    And no, I'm not a 1.8 fanboy, I hate 1.8. I love 1.9, IMHO it's superior but what does this have to do with the map? Suiting blocks? Scripting?

    It's a 1.10 server, genius.
    I need a single command block to operate the sand, and that's through a 1.10 specific command!
    So... why NOT use 1.10 blocks?

    The server is internally running 1.9. They added 1.10 client compatibility. Chill. What do you need to operate sand for?

    It's BORING to see the players falling into the void...
    I figured, it's my map, I can do whatever the HECK I like with it!
    Don't you agree?

    To be honest, the quicksand is just there because you're supposed to be punished for trying to jump onto "safe ground" (noobproof measures)...
    Besides, you still take fall damage from landing on it (Tested by me).

    Well even if it's safe ground nobody would jump on it, there's no staircase to come up the map... nobody would fall for it...

    I think this map could be a lot better. I just way to small and doesn't look even a bit like the other maps. I don't really like the choices of blocks. Still, I like the creativity and originality of the map. That is a lot better than I could do.

    when I saw the map I thought: omg super cool, but when I looked a little bit longer I saw that it was pretty small, but i love the idea.
    I think you just have to make it a bit bigger.

    To those who say "It's too small!"

    That's the point. "Knock back is supposed to be lethal."
    That's why there's quicksand. "Knock back is supposed to be lethal."

    And that's why there's TONS of space for people to build sniper towers.

    It's at least as big as Retro 99, maybe a bit smaller, maybe a bit bigger.
