Creating A Map (From Scratch)
Solo SkyWars - Desserts → By @Nyawh and @Jadeite

Hi! I’m Nyawh!

During the past year, I’ve been working on my own map with the help of several friends. My motivation? Submitting it to the Map Submissions subforum and getting something created by myself released in CubeCraft (excluding my translations work, ofc c:)!

Sadly, the Map Submissions subforum has disappeared and it doesn’t seem it’ll be reopened to map submissions anytime soon. Therefore, I decided to make a thread about this map, Desserts, to show it off to the community, to thank all the people who helped me during the development and to analyze the pros and cons of each version and what we modified each version.

I really enjoy that when comparing the first and final version of the map, the map has improved a lot, and it’s funny to see the various names I’ve given the map!

Before showing the versions, I’d like to give thanks to the following people:
@Jadeite - Basically she’s another creator of the map - thanks for all your help!
@FireExcalibur10 - Thanks for giving me tips, improving the spoon of the ice creams and for suggesting to me the new layout!
@RemiFan, @dumfries, @ForGiveNoWIn, @EntitySplix - Thanks for helping me with earlier stages of the map!

The map was made using WorldEdit and Essentials in a private server network.

Version 1 - Cookie Cat | 26 - 6 - 2020

The first version of the map. The thing I liked the most were those balls leading to mid.
Though the block selection was very poor, the islands were boring and small (specially the starter ones) and some islands had no purpose.

Version 2 - Ice Cream | 11 - 1 - 2021

This version featured bowls of ice cream as starter islands, which added variation to the colour palette and made them bigger. The balls to mid were “merged” into one long bridge and the starter islands were attached to each other with molten chocolate strings to make the map more rushable. Still, the textures weren’t ideal and it was overall boring.

Version 3 - Ice Cream | 9 - 7 - 2021

Since CubeCraft updated to 1.12.2, we were able to use that version’s blocks! Which allowed us to make very good-looking textures. The middle island was decorated with smaller pillars, featuring fences instead of thick blocks only to make it more of an open, PvP-friendly space whilst still looking detailed. We also removed the sub-mid to mid bridges and the molten chocolate between the starter islands because of the designer’s feedback on the previous version. Sadly we couldn’t submit this version.

Version 4 - Desserts | 18 - 7 - 2021

This is the final version, and I’m really happy with it. The ice creams were made a bit more PvP-friendly, and the ring between sub-mid and mid was totally redesigned to chocolate bars instead of tiny ice cream sandwiches.
Overall this is my favourite version of the map.

A Skywars Island
www.cubecraft.net
As a Solo Skywars sweat, I see this as a good map, but I recommend to move the starter islands a bit more to the middle, it's too far away in my opinion. In Skywars it's about the middle to win most of your games. With making it more short to the middle, you will have less campers with bows or you can kill easily. :)

Also, those little islands are not really needed imo, also in version 1, make it more easier to go to mid. Those fences would not help at all.
