For a long 2 months we made this map. In this map, we tried to put together the best maps. We chose maps from personal preferences, but many of us immediately ruled out. These are maps that are shorter than 1 minute (bhop_eazy_csgo and bhop_blue_abstract exception), maps that have a series of maps (series lego exception), collab maps. We would like to add a few more maps, but we reached the limit for the brushes. (There was not much space left to add a part of the map) Also we could not contact many authors, we hope that they will not be upset.
I'm not sure if you tried to contact me, because i dont have any pms from you and i cant recall anyone asking me about this.
I do like the idea, but it feels like a map more for yourself than the iconic maps as a whole, and i understand that you put in preferences but i personally think you shouldn't of. If you would of thrown out your preferences and only put in the icons of bhop then i would've seen it in a better light.
The map feels like you made it for yourself, but with other peoples maps in hand. Which is why it would of been better if you just made an entirely new map.
Anyways, if you use other peoples stages again try harder to contact them, im not very hard to reach so i dont see how you missed me. I dont really mind, i just would of preferred to know about it.
I had an idea a couple years ago to do something similar anually called bhop_collection_20xx that would round up the best levels from all maps made that year. Never got around to starting it, but this is a good reminder of that. That's pretty much the only good part of this particular map, the idea. I'd say to spend more time on it, although I'm not sure how much better you could make it if it took multiple months for this.
"Also we could not contact many authors", i'm sorry snuper i like you as a mapper but come on... i could have said that about a year ago when i was making adventure_2, but why didn't you just search up there names in google?. or ask tonymontana? =\. imo the map isn't bad and looked fun to play but next time you should actually try to get permission for some of those other authors..
I really like the idea of this map. But, I didn't' make bhop_eazy_csgo. I made the original map bhop_eazy for css. I don't know if the the bhop_eazy_csgo is just a convert of the original map I made, but the textures are not even align to the blocks. Not sure if thats just the issue in your map or from the csgo version. The original bhop_eazy has the textures perfectly aligned. Also I rarely permit any rip of the custom textures i make or maps to be remade. And would never aprove something thats not even as the original. But since you took the bhop_eazy_csgo which is basically not my work, I can't take credit or make any reports :) But I would apreciate if you remove the "map by 31K4L" at the end of the map, if it's already not removed. Unless you correct the texturing.
I understand the idea but instead of spending 2 months on ctrl+c -> ctrl+v, those 2 months could have been spent on making a new map that could contribute to the community in a way better way.
After playing the map I was in shock. It was worse than I expected, you´ve used stages that arent the most iconic. And as Chronos said while we tried it out, "It feels like they were afraid of making this too hard by taking the hard stages", and I agree. And for example the TP to fps-max stage 39 is poorly made. Textures not aligned as 31K4L mentioned. I would suggest you actually testing your maps before release. It´s pretty much garbage at this point.
Altho I think this is just leeching of other people's work, you did seem to have done all credits right. Furthermore I think you should not have included the map parts of the authors that did not respond to you. That being said it seems like you did really try to ask for permissions. I have not seen the map ingame so I will not give it a rating.
And all this being said, I think it'll be really nice to see a run of this map. I hope you didn't add too much playerclips.
