    Hello guys and girls and fellow Cubecrafters, aliens, and alligators!

    I've been looking at a bunch of skywars map in creative lately, and I was wondering, why they were all circular. So... I went to the build server, fixed a map together with some voxel and worldedit + a bunch of amazing blockplacing, and here's the result.

    I just want to get some feedback on the map itself, and what you Skywars Fighters think about the spiral concept.

    Thank you
    - Formelet

    As no fall damage is taken it would be easy to jump from island to island.

    They would indeed - but they might be able to make some more stealthy attacks. They could go defensive, and maybe survive like that. It adds some extra strategic aspects to the game.

    I like it alot, the only thing is what you mentioned earlier whereas the top islands would have an advantage of dropping down & killing the bottom players right away. I think that could be fixed if we added fall damage, so that they would have to build a bit to get to each island. If the distance is a problem, we could just move the islands slightly closer together. The islands look fabulous btw Form :) Another idea to even the top island & bottom islands out, is you could put more resources on the bottom islands, ex: More trees, more ore, one extra/secret chest, etc.

    Thank you Cali. ;) - Top islands are closer too, than bottom islands (I think) - adds a disadvantage between the top islands.
    Also I made the center island "tall" so everyone should have most equal distance to it.

    I think I'd call it Swagalicious Floating Islands.
    Spiral Islands could be a more serious name though. ;)

    i say it should be "spiral"
    but maybe natural spiral would work, or maybe we have 2 sections for skywars like we do for spleef and bow spleef! on efor round maps and one for spiral maps.

    That's a good idea, but there's not much room on the Skywars boards.. Maybe we could expand the wall ? @rubik_cube_man @halothe23

    People make 2 more maps and we vote out of all three for which one goes in? This way we know what all the people want. This map would be in.
