uh i hope im modding the right map (u have 4 in pending soo idk)
00:06:578 (5) - personally, i don't like putting anchor points with calmer sections of the song :X
00:26:354 (1) - nice
00:42:374 (3) - personally i feel like this slider fits better without the straight edges to fit the smooth music here something like this

dont use my example tho cuz it sux xd. but just a general idea
00:53:055 (6,7,8) - uhmm make the circle spacing a bit bigger closer to slider spacing. i think it plays better in general that way.
00:58:081 (4,5,6) - ^etc.
01:18:484 (1,2,3,4) - for this jump pattern, u should try to make 01:18:641 (2,3) - a significantly larger jump than the other parts since i assume that is the part you would want to be highlighting q:
01:37:961 (6,7) - needs some more spacing, due to the nature of how dropoff flow works, the gap here feels smaller than what it is, making the pause rather weird to play.
01:51:390 (4,7,10) - maybe nc these to emphasize the 3/4 beat piano playing that u are trying to map here.
01:54:610 (11) - nc would help make 01:54:767 (12) - more readable
01:55:395 - skipping the piano here is kinda awkward, why have the 1/1 gap when u built up all the momentum :(
02:02:778 (4,5,6,7,8) - asthetic wise maybe u can blanket the end of 02:02:463 (3) - this slider with the stream?
02:08:432 (8) - instead of putting a circle u can probably map out 02:08:510 - 02:08:589 - 02:08:668 - with 1/4 sliders or something to emphasize the end of the section more (02:08:746 (1) - )
02:10:003 (1,2,3,1,2,3,1,2,3,1,2,3) - im not sure if im missing it or something but i hear the music here in groups of 2 or 4, not 3 ><
02:12:516 (1,2,3,1,2,3,1,2,3,1,2,3) - ^
03:54:295 (1,2,3,1,2,3,1,2,3,1,2,3) - ^ etc
so.. u know what to do if u want to fix this.
02:18:798 (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12) - with how the music is here, u can probably ctrl g these rhythms 02:18:798 (1,2,3) - this way the higher emphasis slider heads would be on the white tick. and how triplets usually work is that their emphasis is focused on the last note of the triplet. so u want that to land on the white tick instead.
03:12:516 (13) - some more asthetic tricks. u could try to make it so that the slider end is blanketed by 03:12:123 (8,9,10,11,12) -

04:59:321 (1) - ^
03:35:368 (3) - uh.. this could be an issue? since the head of the slider is like litterally covering the repeat and from RC one of the rules was 'if a hitburst covers a slider repeat, its unrankable'. idk if this is exactly considered that, but i would increase sv for this slider.
03:48:955 (14) - i would seperate this to 2 sliders, putting the drums on a repeat is kinda anticlimatic
04:45:028 (4) - could nc here if u'd like


that end up being longer than i thought lol

hurry up and apply kibby's mod
4D
General: use ar 9.5. a four dimensions diff with ar 9? this aint FD4D man. also suits the velocity of the song


00:42:374 (3) - come on man you can do better than that!
00:47:086 (3,4,5,6,7,8) - and similar parts. as from what youve seen from my hard diffs, i always keep the distance large enough for a follow line to be visible so they dont look so clustered/cluttered. try doing the same.
00:55:882 (5,6,7,8) - try doing this. it helps with emphasis http://puu.sh/n7hLS/7ead2c7156.jpg
01:08:904 (2,3) - overmap
01:14:558 (10,11,12) - try doing this http://puu.sh/n7hRI/181b1e723f.jpg coz you got that back and forth motion with the last two sliders. making a stack triple kinda kills the fun.
01:13:301 (6) - you forgot to NC i bet
01:14:715 (1) - also here if you didnt know
01:14:715 (12) - and here
01:19:270 (6,7,8,9,10,11) - pls make the same DS :c i dont see a reason as to why this isnt consistent
01:21:940 (8,9,10,11,1) - this stream feels too slow if you listen to the song. space em out! http://puu.sh/n7i3V/e8b4215f2e.jpg i did that. also 01:21:469 (6,1) - theres an overlap you couldve avoided so fix that as well.
01:34:820 (9) - NC coz downbeat
01:36:076 (6) - NC coz new music part
01:39:374 (5) - at the speed of where your cursor is moving, i suggest to space this out more http://puu.sh/n7i8W/c863d3b964.jpg
01:44:872 (9) - NC
01:46:442 (4,7,10) - NC for that sweet emphasis coz oh my god
01:50:526 (2,3,4,5) - try mapping to the piano instead. theyre more powerful
01:51:154 (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12) - try dividing these streams into sets of 4, like this http://puu.sh/n7iij/6623e471e0.jpg. fix any spacing issues that may arise. for that entire part, this is how i remade it http://puu.sh/n7im7/188fb1d67a.jpg
01:54:767 (12) - this note seems kinda hard to read coz its covered by that last stream. the attention of the player wouldnt be on the stream but rather somewhere else such as forward. supporting my idea for this, try moving this here http://puu.sh/n7iqf/d79c8c52a2.jpg flows alot better as well!
02:06:233 (1) - you did a 1/1 gap for 02:04:976 (1) - coz there was no beat to represent, so using a repeat slider would kinda be overmap lol. just put a hitcircle since thats the only thing that makes sense anyway.
02:09:060 (2) - 1/8 slider pls
02:10:003 (1,2,3,1,2,3,1,2,3,1,2,3) - these are in beats of 4
02:12:516 (1,2,3,1,2,3,1,2,3,1,2,3) - ^
02:15:343 (2,3,4,1,2) - lmao these are random. why not do the same things as you did on the last part? remember; beats of 4.
02:21:626 (2,3,4,5) - lol whats with you and groups of 3 o-o use this rhythm http://puu.sh/n7iNV/d755128570.jpg
02:22:804 (3) - make this into a kickslider so that the next note has emphasis http://puu.sh/n7k7e/f5034b4681.jpg and http://puu.sh/n7k7E/85a7969b63.jpg <-- shit examples
02:25:709 (1) - NC
02:28:380 (8) - use a faster slider lol your streams are moving at sanic speed and then this slider is snail
==there are alot of NC problems in this map so ill point them out in another notice box==
02:36:233 (1) - ctrl g'iing this is literally 200% better than what you have currently.
02:43:144 (7) - ctrl g this and place it here 183:288 coz this note has emphasis.
02:46:914 - totally mappable beat you couldnt mapped
02:57:594 (1) - this position is super uncomfortable to play lol.. try placing it here http://puu.sh/n7ja4/be8d38dd11.jpg stack it with 02:56:338 (1) -
02:59:008 (1) - consider ctrl g'ing this
02:59:479 (2) - ^ apply this mod if you apply the above one, coz these work hand in hand for flow.
03:14:086 (1) - i would expect aLOT more spacing than this coz of the loudness of this part. try doing this http://puu.sh/n7jkL/d72b868735.jpg
03:20:054 (1) - AIRMAN AIRMAN
03:33:876 (3,4,5,6) - consider using a repeat slider for this coz the sound supporting this stream isnt that strong. (not strong enough for a full stream at least)
03:35:368 (3) - place in here 03:35:447 - also arrange the notes so they look like this. apparently your positioning rn is illegal. http://puu.sh/n7krU/31ac62ede9.jpg
03:35:761 (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,1) - and similar parts: it might be just me but this stream seems too fast for this part of the song lol. i mean the song is super quiet and calm and suddenly speed stream.
03:53:352 (2) - 1/16 slider pls
03:54:295 (1,2,3,1,2,3,1,2,3,1,2,3,1,2,3,4,1,2,3,1,2,3,1,2,3,1,2,3,1,2,3,4,1,2,1,2,1) - remember. these are 4 hit patters, not 3.
04:40:630 (1,2,1,2,1,2) - NC them in groups of 3, not 2. http://puu.sh/n7jAw/9b1ee353bd.jpg
04:59:949 (1) - idk why but placing this note in 512:193 feels so much better
its not over yet. NC
01:10:788 (4) - NC
01:13:301 (6) - NC
01:14:558 (1) - continue combo

01:20:840 (4) - NC
01:23:353 (4) - NC
01:25:867 (6) - im gonna stop typing NC coz it should be pretty obvious at this point here are the rules. if i highlight a NC'd note, it means continue combo, vice versa.

General: use ar 9.5. a four dimensions diff with ar 9? this aint FD4D man. also suits the velocity of the song i've been getting a lot of opinions about suitable ar. I orginally had it as 9.5 but was recommended 9. So I'm going to try out 9.3 for now ahahah


00:42:374 (3) - come on man you can do better than that! changed with kibble's mod
00:47:086 (3,4,5,6,7,8) - and similar parts. as from what youve seen from my hard diffs, i always keep the distance large enough for a follow line to be visible so they dont look so clustered/cluttered. try doing the same. ok, i like it
00:55:882 (5,6,7,8) - try doing this. it helps with emphasis http://puu.sh/n7hLS/7ead2c7156.jpg done
01:08:904 (2,3) - overmap why did i even
01:14:558 (10,11,12) - try doing this http://puu.sh/n7hRI/181b1e723f.jpg coz you got that back and forth motion with the last two sliders. making a stack triple kinda kills the fun. interesting, i'm a little bit iffy on the flow but I think it's better given the previous patterning as you said
01:13:301 (6) - you forgot to NC i bet i need to figure out the nc stuff
01:14:715 (1) - also here if you didnt know
01:14:715 (12) - and here
01:19:270 (6,7,8,9,10,11) - pls make the same DS :c i dont see a reason as to why this isnt consistent they look consistent to me; they were all snapped with 0.8x. There's like a variation of 0.04x here and there lol
01:21:940 (8,9,10,11,1) - this stream feels too slow if you listen to the song. space em out! http://puu.sh/n7i3V/e8b4215f2e.jpg i did that. using the same ds as I did throughout the first kiai, 0.8x
also 01:21:469 (6,1) - theres an overlap you couldve avoided so fix that as well. yes
01:34:820 (9) - NC coz downbeat don't agree here because (9) is part of both the piano riff and the pattern

01:54:767 (12) - this note seems kinda hard to read coz its covered by that last stream. the attention of the player wouldnt be on the stream but rather somewhere else such as forward. supporting my idea for this, try moving this here http://puu.sh/n7iqf/d79c8c52a2.jpg flows alot better as well! kibble mentioned this and i took your suggestion
02:06:233 (1) - you did a 1/1 gap for 02:04:976 (1) - coz there was no beat to represent, so using a repeat slider would kinda be overmap lol. just put a hitcircle since thats the only thing that makes sense anyway. there is a beat on the repeat, it's in the drum line.
02:09:060 (2) - 1/8 slider pls yeah, and manually stacked because of kibble's concern
02:10:003 (1,2,3,1,2,3,1,2,3,1,2,3) - these are in beats of 4 as in kibble's mod, i don't agree
02:12:516 (1,2,3,1,2,3,1,2,3,1,2,3) - ^ ^
02:15:343 (2,3,4,1,2) - lmao these are random. why not do the same things as you did on the last part? remember; beats of 4. i want to give the player a small break, but will definitely get more opinions
02:21:626 (2,3,4,5) - lol whats with you and groups of 3 o-o use this rhythm http://puu.sh/n7iNV/d755128570.jpg it's in the music man! ;w;
02:22:804 (3) - make this into a kickslider so that the next note has emphasis http://puu.sh/n7k7e/f5034b4681.jpg and http://puu.sh/n7k7E/85a7969b63.jpg <-- shit examples yes, remapped

03:35:761 (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,1) - and similar parts: it might be just me but this stream seems too fast for this part of the song lol. i mean the song is super quiet and calm and suddenly speed stream. i think it's fine, but we'll see how this changes with more mods
03:53:352 (2) - 1/16 slider pls i cant even deal with u
