Round 45 : Star Formations


Nominated by Xgor. Basically, a pattern of hitcircles (the last one can be a slider) placed in a way such that the the followpoints formed by them form a star. It is not limited to 5/6 pointed stars.

Map(s) that use this technique
DJ Mars - Lemon Tree mapped by MetalMario201
Trans-Siberian Orchestra - Wizards In Winter mapped by Echo
IOSYS - Poinsettia mapped by Aakiha

I like this pattern. It's just great when it's not randomly placed.

Both of those examples are 1 worthy due to their horrible innacuracy, but these are, when perfect, incredibly sexy

Ellie Goulding - Every Time you Go



I couldn't find any ranked examples that aren't mine - I guess I'm just mega nazi. They are easier to make now we have scale by though, so I expect more to come

Yeah, 5 sides of star formation should be equal in length.
Anyway I like it.

i love these. i think shinxyn uses jumps similar to this but im not sure if that constitutes a star pattern. in any case, i love these patterns, insta-5
posted
a pain to click when they are placed like a circle, in other cases they are mostly fine
posted
Same. I prefer them when the followpoints themselves form a star

And that's what this technique is? If it just goes round in a circle it's a flower combo

Not obvious enough names I guess.

You're lucky the AR was too high for me to notice before!
