So I got my connection back for a while. Whoopie. Who knows how long it'll last.
Seriously, I need to get a job.
But anyway, while I was offline I had plenty of time to map stuff. 11 songs, to be precise. I'm going to try to provide a small comment for each one:
3OH!3 - R.I.P. [Hard]
I've always liked this song, since the day Streets of Gold came out I think. The map was long overdue, since I had always thought of mapping it. 3OH!3 songs are just so mappable.
I wanted to try something different for difficulty settings this time, so I put a high OD, semi-slow AR and regular drain.
ASIAN KUNG-FU GENERATION - Re:Re: [Hard]
Yes, I can't believe I actually did another take to this song. Well, the peppymap isn't the best map ever, but it's become kind of a classic now, at least to me. Oh well, I don't particularly dislike how I mapped it! There's obviously some inspiration from the classic beatmap, but it isn't much.
CHEMISTRY meets m-flo - Now or Never [Insane]
Yes! This map was also long overdue, since it became another song I idolized back in the day... well, I still enjoy it. DxS, love me! Love me and all the non-overlapping streams I included in this! The other map sucks and you know it. :<
Also, yes, I totally should have cut the mp3 but I ended up not doing it for who knows what reason.
Susumu Hirasawa - High Minded Castle [Hard]
This song is oddly catchy. Well, it's Susumu so what do you expect! I tried to give this song a good jumpy flow, and I like playing it, even though I think it's because of the song.
I haxcut the mp3, by the way. Even though I'd like to play 5 minutes of this song it's too much to map it, it'd probably get a bit repetitive.
Susumu Hirasawa - On Line Malaysia [Hard]
Finish hitsounds galore! Yes, they might be a little bit overused but removing them just doesn't feel right anymore. I like the song more when it's played with the hitsounds now~ the beat of the original song sounds weak, and the finishes add what it really needed.
Susumu Hirasawa - Ride The Blue Limbo [Hard]
This is a somewhat slow song, so I can't do much with it. I tried to keep a steady, regular flow with this one, so it goes with the song; the difficulty turned out a bit easy though. :(
Susumu Hirasawa - SEH LE MAO [Hard]
I wonder what language Susumu Hirasawa uses on this song. It's not japanese, is it? It sounds kinda weird. But anyway, yes! Jumps, sliders and whatnot. I think this map really catches the flow of the song.
Two Door Cinema Club - Eat That Up, It's Good for You [Hard]
So yes, apparently I am doing the complete album for this as a project. These songs are just so mappable, even more than 3OH!3 songs.
I didn't borrow any mp3 or timing for this one, I did it completely offline. :D
Two Door Cinema Club - I Can Talk [Insane]
So, if a song's vocal aren't very fast or 'active', but you want to map to them, what do you do? Use jumps! I'm sorry to say, but I was a little bit disappointed with the ranked map of this song; even though it's not of bad quality, I disliked how it didn't follow the lyrics at all. I had to do this version. I borrowed the timing and the mp3 from the other mapset, but not the background. I hope that doesn't count as stealing!
Two Door Cinema Club - Something Good Can Work [Insane]
Non-overlapping streams, here we go. I specially like how this map plays in CtB, very jumpy and challenging~
Two Door Cinema Club - You're Not Stubborn [Hard]
This started as a guest difficulty for Kiddo's map, but his mapset was full and he got it ranked before I uploaded it, so I cried. Now it's complete!
That should be it for new beatmaps, however, I updated the other 2 maps I had uploaded:
Hyadain feat. Disukun Seizin - Riamitte Konna Mon Dakke [Hard]
The map didn't look much like a Hard, it looked more like an Insane with those jumps! I reduced some of them though not all, as to not destroy the patterns completely.
Two Door Cinema Club - Undercover Martyn [Insane]
Nothing big here, just added tags and rearranged some beats here and there. It should still play the same way~
I've become addicted to my own maps recently, specially Undercover Martyn - look, I got an S after around 500+ tries! Too bad that was before the update. God help me :(
