Mapping is really fun.

Ranking however... is a different story.

I try to map as much as I can but I always end up getting stuck so I can never finish anything.
posted
The only thing that prevent me for mapping (because I'm no professional)is mainly:
1. Manual BPM setting (so tedious, is there any alternative I wonder...)
2. Abbreviation and other things that I didn't understand(SV, 1/2, 1/3 I don't understand)
3. There's so many things to do, but can't really tell the actual phase of it (like step-by-step or something)
4. Unwritten rule about certain things (maintaining the flow, set a fitting AR, CS, and OD for each difficulty [FAQ is not related], and other)

Is there anything that can help me solve this problem, then I'll map right away

do you even map bruh?

Well atfer school mapping is my 2nd life. I map whenever i have i some freetime and feel like it. Why do i map?
Because there are so so so many good songs out there which deserve a Map, and since there are so many japanese songs already im mainly focusing on House, DnB, Hardstyle etc.
Mapping can be really fulfilling as well, whenever you start a new map youre like "How the hell am i supposed to map that" then you map it like 2 times and just now how to map it. Its an awesome feeling. And the feeling to contribute something to the game itself is really amazing, and thats where all the fun comes from, as a mapper youre actually keeping the game alive. Mapping is love, mapping is life.

I never plan to map or interact with that terrible community.

Tried to map back then. But because of the difficulty in fixing things, timing, etc, I gave up mapping. If i had the talent in mapping and if I'm just persevere I would have made lots of beatmaps. Edited:[Didn't even published my beatmaps cuz the community may pass by and give out critics, which I'm not good to handle.]
P.S. I think you need kudosu to advertise your maps or something like that and many in the beatmap threads don't accept newbie modders so you can't earn much. ? >.< I think[?]

The mapping community is an ever-evolving mixture of people who know what they're talking about, don't know what they're talking about, who know the mathematical basis of all modern music, those who don't know what a stanza is, people who map for attention, people who map for creative expression, people who map because they crave accomplishment.

Music, and thus to a necessary lesser extent, mapping, has been since its conception a race between creativity and formulation: A never-ending, self-fulfilling ouroboros of interactivity and mutual competition more relevant to the human psyche than any sort of spiritual or material experience.

And we're all just along for the ride.


Oh, and there are people who make penis sliders. They're the real heroes.

It's hardly a community, when basicly if you're new you're alone, since little people will be willing to spend their time to teach you, if you have experience you don't really need the community to rank your maps

I tried many times to map but I can't create any maps which can follow the rythm of the song. Sooo, it's really annoying for me to map, it needs too many practice and time.

I was constantly thinking of mapping but it got me back. By the way, which songs are good to map in nature?

Anything with clear, consistent beats so that you can time them without too many problems and that you actually have something to place notes on. Also songs with variety so that it won't get too repetitive and boring, which is one of the reasons why DnB songs are often cut in osu unless it's a marathon.
