This is the thread for the CtB community map project.

What is the Community Map Project?

This is not just any collaboration, but a very large one. It isn't just limited to a few people, it's to be helped with the entire community of Catch The Beat, as well as any other mapper wishing to give Catch the Beat mapping a try. This is a good way to help people stick their toe into the pool of mapping for Catch the Beat. In addition, commoners like myself, Deif, Drafura, Krah, and others will be able to help you out with your mapping and mod it as well. This will also help get a large amount of styles into one map, making it a fun and colourful game for any player.

How do you map in CtB?

Mapping in Catch the Beat is rather simple. You can map like a normal standard map, except only the left and right movement will actually matter. (x axis, to be technical) Spinners become banana rain, and sliders become streams of smaller fruits you need to slowly move across.
There are, however, some quirks you need to avoid:
- Impossible sliders, the sliders that becomes hyperdashes on the ticks and ends of it, resulting in too fast of a slider velocity.
- Spinners that end 1/2 a beat before the next fruit.
- Overloading the map with hyperdashes or multiple repeated hyperdashes.
These are considered bad CtB mapping practice, so keep it in mind!

You can also check out ztrot's CtB Mapping Basics video in osu!academy here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dyDMyB9D420

How can I help?
We have picked a song to map, and have it all timed, so we are all ready to map it.
You should read the Catch the Beat ranking criteria: https://osu.ppy.sh/wiki/Catch_the_Beat_Ranking_Criteria
This will help you get a good base information on what will and will not work in Catch the Beat.
Now that you're all set, feel free to pick some time slots! If you're new to mapping in Catch the Beat, you can try and focus on the easier difficulties like Cup and Salad, and if you're feeling more experienced you can try Platter, Rain, or Overdose.

How do I claim a time frame, work on it, then submit it to you?
1. Select the time frames you want to map and post the time frames you want on the forum along with the difficulty you are editing.
2. Go to my map, and edit the difficulty your assigned time frames are for. The timing points and SV changes should be all set up and ready.
3. Look in the timeline at the bottom of the screen and search for your allotted time slot(s).
4. Save the map when you're done.
5. Go to File > Open Song Folder http://puu.sh/8LmCp/5d73e86b3c.png
6. Upload the .osu of the difficulty you edited and post it on the forum.
7. Done! :D

Once again, the rules:

1. Under any circumstances, do NOT change the slider velocity. That is preset for a good reason. If you want it to be slower, you can angle the slider from being horizontal to more vertical. If you REALLY AND ABSOLUTELY need a SV change, contact me personally. If you change the SV on your own end and bring the part to me it will look weird and wonky when I put it my copy of the map.
2. If you want to add/remove timing points please talk to me.
3. You may change the song settings on your own end personally. Keep in mind these changes will not be in the final work.
4. You may claim sections. But when you do, you may claim up to only three, and you cannot claim more until you complete the spots you wanted to complete and pass them to me. This is to help ensure people who wants a part DO get a part.

If you want to claim a time slot, post in this thread. DO NOT post time slot claims in the map thread. The map thread will be reserved for modding ONLY, when it's ready to be modded.

If you feel like you want to go above and beyond, you may create a guest difficulty for the song on your own time, but keep in mind it will go through the modding process too like everything else, and it will be your responsibility to upkeep it.

Good idea, support!

go go I love nano desu, amazing flow and very easy to map 180 bpm

Probably I can help this project. Support!

So how can I help?

Pretty old but i want to get this one ranked. :D I just need 1~2 more diff and this is wip for me

I like the idea, I might join :)

My first post after months :D

think I can be helpful here as well since I mapped some CtB difficulties already which also got ranked! I will suggest something later maybe

Please send your votes. I put a poll up for you.
toybot
this looks really interesting, especially since I kind of want to dab into CTB mapping :O I will most likely join
Deif
Holdin' On has to be removed from that poll due to DMCA violations like any other Skrillex related song, and hence it won't ever be a rankable mapset.

And no offense, but it looked more like a "make me a guest diff" thread instead of a solid project. Why don't you guys look for a fresh idea from YT/NND/etc with easy beats to map and upload the map by yourself, Kitokofox? You're hosting the project after all, and you can distribute the parts for the people who are willing to help, whether it's by giving out full diffs (X makes the Platter, Y makes the Salad) or just simple sections of the diffs (X makes from 0:00:000 to 0:30:000). I could assist you with timing help and tips if you want.

Just my 2 cents.
toybot
Rather than just a single song, how about perhaps an entire album, like how some projects are going by?
ZiRoX
I nominate this song: https://osu.ppy.sh/s/87876

Kitokofox
ZiRoX. I think we're going to move on, and try nominating fresh songs found online. However, someone did find a really old song that has a CtB that nobody knows about, we could take the timing from that song too. In fact, given I didn't know about it says something at least.

Regardless, Go find some songs out there you don't see in osu! yet. I will take onto Drafura's suggestion. If we can find some pretty nice songs that aren't currently in osu! or in a leftover state on the website that the mapper probably will never finish/has parted from this game for good.
alienflybot
I nominate this:
https://osu.ppy.sh/s/160955

The song is not seen in Osu! and I think it is pretty easy to map this kind of songs

I thought this whole thing was made for giving out tips on how to make your map better, not necessarily rank it.

Though if you say pending copyrighted maps shouldn't be allowed, they already are since peppy didn't delete them from the server.

Good luck anyways.
