^I don't know what you're talking about.

I highly doubt peppy would ever have the time to add this anyways (even if it is a good idea).

It sure would be nice though... Instead of waiting on someone, that may not even want to work on the collab., to map their part and send it to you and then having to add their timing points and hit objects to the .osu... That's not even including if their part is either garbage or unrankable.. :roll:

I really like this idea and it would make collaborating more efficient. If this is not well supported maybe a compromise can be made?

Cool!, but its not a minor change so dont spect it soon, there are too many things to coordinate and test for this to happen.
Support!

I like this idea a lot. And IMO it's not a duplicate since the idea (collab mapping) is unrelated to those in the old threads.

I'll make a deal: If someone creates a series of video tutorials on mapping in osu! – something I've hoped would have been done by now without even having to ask – I will put everything to one side and make something like this happen. This is not a new idea, and it is something I have been keen to implement, but there is a lot involved in making it work correctly.

Hell, I might even settle for new video tutorials on installing and loading new maps into osu! or anything really. I's so sad to see so few quality tutorial videos :(.

Sounds like a good deal. osu! really needs some video tutorials on mapping :(

I would love to help create those videos, but unfortunately, I have no idea about those cool awesome extravagant amazing fancy mapping techniques.
hell yeah. I don't map. My first map got graveyarded, and I submitted a new one lately, which is bound to be graveyarded again xD

Same here, I'm still a noob when it comes to mapping so I wouldn't be of much use... It looks like we'll have to get help from a pro if we want to get those videos made. :?

Quickly, to the thinking chamber!! \o/

I've been learning quite a bit about mapping from the bit I've been doing, as well as talking with others who have ranked maps. I also have genuine knowledge on making good tutorials (clear voice, no stuttering, planned out & everything), so I could give it a shot.

EDIT: Question for those among you who are mappers - why HASN'T a tutorial series been done yet? I can't imagine every single person on here who has even a bit to know about mapping, and noone has thought to do as such yet.. unless some among you have thought about it, but didn't do it for a specific reason.

I think a large part of it would be a language thing, many many mappers are foreign and don't have good enough english to do a proper english tutorial

Other than that it comes down to :effort: and lack of knowledge on how to put one together.

I have seen video tutorials around, and I thought there was one posted in the FAQ, but none of them are that great or extensive

If we have any amount of foreign speakers who also speak english and are willing to contribute to a project like this, we could create a single tutorial video with a set-in-stone script and have versions in different languages. It'd need to be really solid, though.

This isn't a place to discuss making video tutorials, this is a place to discuss the current request, there are a few threads regarding tutorials if you look for them, it'd be best to just ask mappers or learn mapping yourself and then make them, and once they're done post them in a thread in the beatmapping general questions.

can't there be more proper mapping techniques in the wiki?? I could make a real noob timing help video since I'm only good at timing maps xD
I timed like 20 songs but never placed any circle on them xD

We have to resolve the task at hand before progress can be made on this feature request :|

hmm the collaborative mapping, i hope it supports either submitted and non-submitted ones similar like spectating; (hoping someone would make the tutorial, i remember Cyril or Suzully had made it lol, only one)

You can discuss this all you want, but as per usual, I will not take any specifics into account until I have implemented a feature to my liking. Just so you know before going wild with your imagination.

I would, but it would be better if a BAT made the video tutorials since they are the better mappers. I vote charles445 to make a comprehensive video list. Whoever does it, it would most certainly be worth it. That's why I would offer, but my voice is shrill and annoying when I record.

We need to decide on one person, because several people doing it at once may not be the best way to consolidate our efforts. Who would be the best person to do this, so peppy and the future mappers wont get lead wrongly. And also we should move it to, you know what peppy. You don't have a tutorials board. General questions is similar to one, but it's not the same. No wonder you don't have a set of them yet, there's not a perfect place for one to be made.

I guess for now we could move the discussion on that to 56 unless someone has a better area to discuss a video tutorial initiative.

In the meantime I will feature request a Tutorials board.

Edit: Or we can discuss here... I guess... It doesn't matter to me as long as Sakura doesn't get on my case.

/me jumps out of thinking chamber

okay so guys, let's start planning those videos! *with high spirits* :3
Since it will be a series, here's how I think the flow should go (these will be really short videos since people like me hate long endless boring tuts) :
I. INTRODUCTION
A. Choosing A Song To Map
B. Getting Familiar With The Editor (osu!std only)
II. GETTING STARTED
A. Setting Up A Song Difficulty
B. Timing Your Map Properly
C. Adding Timing Sections And Kiai Time
D. Placing Notes, Sliders, And Spinners
E. Using The Editor Features: Distance Snap, Grid Snap, etc.
F. Customizing The Hitsounds (Preset Ones)
III. BASICS OF MAPPING
A. Mapping Techniques: Most Common Note Patterns
B. Map Editor Features: Flip and Rotate
C. Mapping Techniques: Advanced Note Patterns
D. Polishing Your Map
IV. DESIGNING YOUR MAP
A. Adding A Background Image And Color
B. Adding A Video
C. Optimizing Your Video
D. Introduction To Storyboarding
E. Basics Of Storyboarding
V. ADVANCED MAPPING
A. Using Different Time Signatures
B. Using Advanced Beat Snaps
C. Adding Custom Hitsounds
D. <insert Charles445 threads here>
VI. ADVANCED CUSTOMIZATION AND DESIGN
A. Most Common Storyboarding Techniques
B. Adding Custom Skin Elements
C. Advanced Customization Techniques
VII. GAME MODE SPECIFIC MAPS
A. Mapping Taiko Difficulties
B. Mapping CTB Difficulties
C. Mapping mania Difficulties
VIII. PUBLISH YOUR BEATMAP
A. Submitting Your Map
B. Keeping Your Map Up-To-Date
C. Getting Your Map Ranked

so more or less we should be able to produce 25+ short videos, including in-depth sb discussions and basic game mode specific mapping. We need someone to make the awesome videos, someone to record their sexy voices, and a lot of people adding up info for each video. ^_^

Edit: I went browsing some Charles445 threads, and it made me want to put a super advanced mapping techniques section xD

Yes, I know there are some topics up there that will be useless. It needs repolishing. :)
