THIS SONG <33333333333333333

Please tell me you're seriously mapping this ok. If yes and you're going to make it to rankage, I'll make Normal GD.

I am seriously going to try to get this ranked (I haven't managed to get any of my other maps ranked so this will hopefully be my first). I would love it if you could make a normal diff for this!! Do you think I should make an insane diff or just have easy, normal, and hard?
BTW, you did an AMAZING job on Gold!! I love it so much!

(:

I think you don't need an Insane here, Hard is enough.
I'll try to make the GD later, maybe (;

Okay cool. I started making the insane so I might post part of it and let other people decide if they would like me to finish it.

Before we continue farther:

Offset -25 (75) 100 feels too late
SV 1.8/2.0 on Hard (I'm going to use 1.6 on my Normal)
DS 1.0 on Hard, you should not set DS lower than 0.8 and higher than 1.2 or the movement flow will be broken (unmatched the SV speed)

Offset - I can fix this
My SV changes throughout the song. It starts off with a slower velocity and speeds up as the song reaches higher intensity. Is the 1.8/2.0 SV for the beginning of the song or for a different part.
Because the SV changes throughout the song, I changed the DS to keep the blanketed notes effect through the entire song. If the DS increases too much the blankets are not possible. Thoughts on this?

Ahh... I see about SV changes.
But about the blankets, I see you're utilizing low DS for blankets. Hmm.. I don't recommend this. I'd better use correct and smooth DS instead of low DS even with blankets. You know, when mapping the important thing is flow first, visual second, hitsounds third. DS affects flow more than you think.

Edit: 1000 posts oyeah!

Okay, I will see what I can do about the DS on hard and insane. And congrats on 1000 posts!

Quick question, would it be okay to have the DS on hard change as long as it doesn't go below 0.7 or above 1.2? For example, one part of the song would be 0.8 and another would be 1.1.

Umm, I don't think so. SV may be vary across the song but DS shouldn't, because just what I've stated earlier, DS affects flow greatly and various DS is not recommendable, combined or not combined with SV.

For such discussion like this we should continue on in-game chat, to avoid unecessary posts on this beatmap thread

Hi
Mod from my queue

[General]
Volume set to 60%-80%
Nice mapflow and rhythm. I just have nothing to mod.
The flashing SB is pretty distracting, use less flash effect. Add lyric if you like

[Normal]
00:07:653 (3,4) - Adjust:
01:42:548 (3) - Move to 01:42:390 and add a note at 01:42:706
01:43:653 (6) - NC

[Hard]
00:44:285 (10) - NC

[Insane]
Resnap all the notes. some of them are not on the lines.
No hitsounds.. That's not good
Usually you can use 2,4 clap(add clap on the red line) and add finish on the start or end of each section.

I added hitsounds for you, see if you like:

Just some suggestions and my thoughts.

Normal

00:07:653 (3) - NC (it's quite identical to 00:17:759 (1), which is a new combo)


Hard

00:10:180 (8) - new combo
00:12:706 (1) - remove NC
00:15:232 (5) - NC
00:17:759 (1) - remove NC
00:20:285 (4) - NC
01:21:232 - maybe add a note here?


Insane

The sliders that start on the blue line sound slightly weird, they are usually on the white, and for your song, usually when the clap (Just stating what I felt when playing the map) Just at the Kiai time at 00:55:653. The 2nd Kiai time feels smoother and more comfortable.

I changed the first kiai section slightly to make it smoother and similar to the second kiai section.
Thanks so much for your input!

Hello! I hope this can be of use to you :D

Normal
01:37:969 - Maybe change this circle to a slider?

Hard
00:16:811 - Circle?
01:28:811 - ^

Insane
00:32:285 - This slider's end is not snapped.
00:58:811 - Circle?
01:05:443 - This slider's end is not snapped.
01:05:705 - Inherited Point is not snapped, intentional?
01:50:443 - This slider's end is not snapped.
01:51:178 - Same as 01:05:705, intentional?

This map seems pretty dang clean, Kudosu to you! Good Luck!

Hard
00:16:811 - Circle? There is not a clear beat here so I am going to leave it as just a slider.
01:28:811 - ^ I'm also going to leave this how it is. At beat 5 and 6 there are distinct drum beats while a 01:28:811 there is just a snare noise.

Insane
00:32:285 - This slider's end is not snapped. Good catch. Fixed.
00:58:811 - Circle? I'm going to leave this one as it is for now. I don't find anything wrong with it but if it comes up again I will change it.
01:05:443 - This slider's end is not snapped. Good catch. Fixed
01:05:705 - Inherited Point is not snapped, intentional?This is intentional so that the next beat will start a kiai time and shoot stars while not turning the previous kiai time off too soon.
01:50:443 - This slider's end is not snapped. Good catch. Fixed
01:51:178 - Same as 01:05:705, intentional? Same as above.

Thank you so much for your input! It helps a lot!

Hi from my queue :)
Sorry that it took so long, but school, y'know? =D
Nevermind though, let's go~

[Normal]

What kind of DS did you use? 1.1 or 1? It says 1, but.. when i test it it's kinda 1.3, i'm confused. Because it's pretty important to use DS in Normal!

00:06:390 (2) - Why don't you put this circle as same as 00:08:917 (2) - ?
00:44:285 (4) - This can be confusing, since it's normal, i don't suggest this - i dunno if it's unrankable though.
01:23:917 (6) - NC maybe?
01:28:496 (5,7) - I don't like how they touch each other. I suggest make a nicer bow at Slider 5.
01:34:022 (5) - NC

Note: Whoa, this diff is really great made, i really liked the combination of sliders/circles you used - but in my opinion too confusing for a normal. I suggest using less stacking (It's up to you, only a suggestion). Also, i would recommend adding some hitsounds, such as whistles, i think they would fit well~

[Hard]

00:37:969 (5) - I recommend NC here, since 1) it fits the background msuic 2) the combo doesn't get that high.
00:43:811 (8) - It's up to you, but i would add a circle here. ~
01:23:443 (9) - NC
01:43:653 (9) - NC
01:54:706 (6) - I would use 3 circles here, instead of a slider
01:55:338 (9) - and a normal slider here.

Note: I'm sorry, but I'm not really able to find something very bad here! So i only wrote some new combos, i'm sorry about that q.q~

[Insane]

00:05:759 (2,3,4) - Make this look like a nicer bow.
00:37:022 (4,5,6) - ^
00:44:285 (5) - This slider looks a bit odd to me.
In this first part, I liked hwo you placed the beat .. but i recommend to make a bit more repeating, beacuse for me it seems a bit random ^^;
00:51:864 (4) - Make this 1 tick longer (that it ends on the blue one)
00:56:601 (4) - 1 tick shorter

00:58:180 (1) - Let me recommend a beat from here on:

00:58:180 (1) - A slider until here 00:58:338 -
00:58:496 - nothing
00:58:653 - Slider until 00:58:811 -
00:58:969 - nothing
00:59:127 (3) - circle
00:59:285 (4) - circle
00:59:443 (5) - circle
00:59:601 - circle
00:59:759 - nothing
00:59:917 - circle
01:00:075 - circle
01:00:232 - nothing

another beat suggestion: (Circle 1 starts at 01:03:390 (1) - )
http://puu.sh/26GNR
10 ends at 01:05:127 (10) -

You could follow this rythm, it's up to you :3

01:27:232 (5) - 1 tick shorter
01:27:706 (6) - add a circle

Btw: You can use the same rythm as in the other kiai time for the second one.

Well.. that's it!
If you wanna change the rythm in your insane, and you're stuck because you don't get it, feel free to pm me in game, or write me a message :D

Good luck~
I love the skin btw!

[Normal]

What kind of DS did you use? 1.1 or 1? It says 1, but.. when i test it it's kinda 1.3, i'm confused. Because it's pretty important to use DS in Normal! In this diff I changed the DS at different points of the song (whenever I change SV) so the notes would be the same distance throughout the song. I felt that on this diff I could pull off changing the DS where on the others it affected the flow too much.

00:06:390 (2) - Why don't you put this circle as same as 00:08:917 (2) - ? Changed.
00:44:285 (4) - This can be confusing, since it's normal, i don't suggest this - i dunno if it's unrankable though. If this had been easy I would not have changed the SV. But since it is normal I thought that it would be nice. Also look at the first DS comment.
01:23:917 (6) - NC maybe? I think this new combo would be good.
01:28:496 (5,7) - I don't like how they touch each other. I suggest make a nicer bow at Slider 5. How would this be? http://osu.ppy.sh/ss/625294
01:34:022 (5) - NC Made new combo.

Note: Whoa, this diff is really great made, i really liked the combination of sliders/circles you used - but in my opinion too confusing for a normal. I suggest using less stacking (It's up to you, only a suggestion). Also, i would recommend adding some hitsounds, such as whistles, i think they would fit well~ I have some claps and a few finishes in here. They just happen to fall on beats where there are already some claps. I try not to use whistles in songs this smooth and peaceful because it disrupts the mood of the song. This is my favorite difficulty for this song so I think I am going to leave it mostly how it is.

[Hard]

00:37:969 (5) - I recommend NC here, since 1) it fits the background msuic 2) the combo doesn't get that high. Added the NC.
00:43:811 (8) - It's up to you, but i would add a circle here. ~ I am going to leave this how it is because there is not a definate beat here.
01:23:443 (9) - NC Added the NC.
01:43:653 (9) - NC Added the NC.
01:54:706 (6) - I would use 3 circles here, instead of a slider I never thought of that. Good find.
01:55:338 (9) - and a normal slider here. I guess that the repeater messes with the flow of the song. Fixed.

Note: I'm sorry, but I'm not really able to find something very bad here! So i only wrote some new combos, i'm sorry about that q.q~ No problem. If you can't find anything bad than I am very happy! :)

[Insane]

00:05:759 (2,3,4) - Make this look like a nicer bow. I did a complete makeover of the beginning of this diff. From 00:00:000 to 00:29:759.
00:37:022 (4,5,6) - ^ Fixed.
00:44:285 (5) - This slider looks a bit odd to me. Just wondering why this one looks odd. It is just a very wide arc.
In this first part, I liked hwo you placed the beat .. but i recommend to make a bit more repeating, beacuse for me it seems a bit random ^^;
00:51:864 (4) - Make this 1 tick longer (that it ends on the blue one) I'm not going to change this because at the point 00:52:180 there is a piano note which creates a good slider cutoff point.
00:56:601 (4) - 1 tick shorter I've tried it both ways and I'm not sure which one I like better. I will think about it a while before I decide.

00:58:180 (1) - Let me recommend a beat from here on: I tried this and I feel that it misses too many of the louder beats and uses more of the softer beats. I think I will leave this how it is.

00:58:180 (1) - A slider until here 00:58:338 -
00:58:496 - nothing
00:58:653 - Slider until 00:58:811 -
00:58:969 - nothing
00:59:127 (3) - circle
00:59:285 (4) - circle
00:59:443 (5) - circle
00:59:601 - circle
00:59:759 - nothing
00:59:917 - circle
01:00:075 - circle
01:00:232 - nothing


another beat suggestion: (Circle 1 starts at 01:03:390 (1) - )
http://puu.sh/26GNR
10 ends at 01:05:127 (10) - This rhythm I tried to make similar to the other kiai time because I liked it a lot.

You could follow this rythm, it's up to you :3

01:27:232 (5) - 1 tick shorter What if I did something like this? http://osu.ppy.sh/ss/626513
01:27:706 (6) - add a circle

Btw: You can use the same rythm as in the other kiai time for the second one.

Well.. that's it! Great mod! I really appretiate your help.
If you wanna change the rythm in your insane, and you're stuck because you don't get it, feel free to pm me in game, or write me a message :D

Good luck~
I love the skin btw! Thanks! I'm still not sure if I like the 50 or the X being grey but I don't know what color to use. I also wish that I could make the 300 be the same color at the beat behind it.
Again, thanks so very much for your help!
