Alright this is funno reply are still considered to change or alternated until i found the way
I really appreciate the fact that you denied literally everything
Ok, this post is going to refute some of the justifications for your patterns, but I'm going to put a focus on specific things. Namely, I am going to ignore any point where my sole argument is that its boring. This includes the intense wub seciton thing at 01:53:095 - , however, I still think my SV statement and suggestion are valid.
Alright and lastly before I start the actual rebuttal, there is one thing I want to explain right now.
I am a modder for this chart, not the mapper. Me pointing out concerns I have with the chart do not neccesitate me giving you suggestions for certain sections, it is fully your responsibility to find a solution when your map is approached with issues.
Anyways, lets start the rebuttal
00:01:997 - you ignored this sound and 00:09:909 - while paying attention to the sound at 00:04:964 - and 00:08:591 - (inconsistent within itself, this is extremely minor though) what sound? if there's anything i can hear of is only an echo of the first piano sound. that is almost barely noticeable. The fact that even none of the modder here even mentioned that, this is already explaining that those two point are worthless to be mapped. do note i'm only focusing to the prominent, hearable piano
First off, saying that no modders before me caught this, therefore I shouldn't have to change this, is invalid, given that the whole point of having multiple modders is so that people can catch things that other people didn't. Second off, there are sounds that are clearly audible that, yes, do correlate to what youre calling an "echo" of the first piano note. However, it is important to note that you actually do map notes to sounds that have the exact same volume and intensity, say comparing the sound at 00:01:997 - and the sound at 00:04:964 - . They are the same volume, same intensity, same purpose, but one has a note and one doesn't. This is clearly an inconsistency issue. Whether or not it can be written off as just a small mistake is out of my jurisdiction but is still something I should bring up regardless. // okay maybe i could heard that in the first point. but not at - 00:09:909 - however. The sounds occured there isnt piano, its rather like a small clap that getting overshadowed by the piano before
00:11:228 - Not a double while literally two notes later theres a double on the same sound. - 00:05:294 (5294|3) - look here. same with this
Ok? Then that is also a problem? This has no defense for why you do this, only exposing yourself for having this sort of inconsistency. // guess you missing the point. double is only used when the piano have a notably loud sound and at least a distance of 1/1 beats with another note before and after it.
00:19:057 (19057|1) - Why is this mapped? To make it flow better? Cuz theres no sound there hihat (not the hitsound. its actually exist)
No it doesn't. And if you actually think it doesn I would implore you to listen to it slowed down and compare what you hear to the stuff you mapped right before it. // i did, and my point still stand. i've been listening to this part, hundreds of time and i cannot ignore such obvious things afloat like nothing. idk how you couldnt heard the hihat here. i heard it pretty clearly myself
00:19:469 (19469|1,19469|0,19469|3) - no discernable difference between this and 00:19:799 (19799|2,19799|0,19799|3) - despite being noticeably different sounds how can you tell its "noticeably" different?
I really shouldn't have to explain why this is noticeably different. The second sound you mapped a hand to is louder than the one before, thus deserving of different layering effects, which you didn't do //uh arent they already different? 1st is |124| and the 2nd is |134|. the only thing is the same is the LN that covers the primary 1/2 long snare drum. both are the same kind. same kind of instrument = same placement sounds reasonable to me
00:23:013 (23013|0) - Same as before ^. kinda funny actually, you only mentioned the specific part despite almost all the similar synths have relatively same volume
When did we start talking about synth? Also when did we start talking about volume with this stuff? This mod was reffering to the 19:057 mod when it said same, which had nothing to do with synth and everything to do with percussion, an ignorance that I will give the same rebuttal to. // you're not. but i'm talking about my statement at - 00:19:057 (19057|1) - in which you implies "i heard nothing" while actually all the things occured here is the exact, same hihat like the others have (I wasnt meant to mention synths oops).
00:23:425 (23425|1,23425|0,23425|3) - see above in relation to 00:23:755 (23755|2,23755|1,23755|3) - ^^ //...yeah same
00:25:486 - So you decided to not map this note despite doing it before? if you meant this - 00:21:530 (21530|1) - , its intentional because i did the structure quite different, and so the player could handle these properly. What makes you think the player would have any trouble with the second set if they were able to handle the first set just fine? And also stating that you "changed" the structure of this section despite it not changing in the music enough to justify only supports the lack of quality and consistency // i could get away with this i think
Not mentioning any more consistency issues for that section. Please look over this. Also those LNs feel awkward to me being used in that way. This method of using long notes will eventually lead me to another point I'll be bringing up later which mostly has to do with you arbitrarily switching between mapping using lns and mapping without using lns. Going to still fully support my suggestion here
00:31:420 (31420|2,31502|1,31585|3) - I don't see a point in deviating from the already established trill thing you were doing, which legitimately made sense and was somewhat interesting there's 3 triple (or "hands" if you more comfortable with that term) in-between these transition. okay maybe i still could do the trill but it will be unecessarily heavy with 3 stacks happend in two columns at the same time So I understand what you mean here, Idk I guess it just doesn't really feel right? I'll say that this is something that could stay given the circumstances, though I don't necessarily like the lack of clarity between the three hands given that all three of them are different from each other in terms of sound, though that much might be difficult to avoid here
00:32:986 (32986|2,32986|1,32986|3,33151|3,33151|2,33151|0) - Why did you make these two different hands. Why not make them both  hands. They are literally the same exact sound and have no reason being different. 2nd hands act as an opening to the next section. particularly that works too but i feel the concept is better be like this
Eh, I personally disagree with purposely avoiding a more representative pattern in order to lead players into a section despite the transition being relatively easy with respect to the rest of the chart // huh? isnt mapping is about how you represent each sound with pattern towards the song? if that could do, why doing it in a very mainstream way
00:40:898 (40898|2,40898|1,40898|3,41227|1,41227|3,41227|2) - Not really an inconsistency mod but why are these not extended to be full 1/2 lns. There is no sound here that doesn't end on the 1/2 note tick cymbals sounds slightly longer here. you can notice it more clearly at 25% but generally you should be easily heard it when playing
You misunderstood this I think, what I meant is that the sound is longer than what you have mapped. Though this is pretty minor so w/e // ah, but i'm still pretty sure those cymbals only exist for 1/2
00:45:760 (45760|1) - This is a ghost note 100% sure this is a piano Ok no. The last piano sound for this is on 00:45:678 - , and you can definitely tell by listening to the gap between the last piano and the drum hit that begins the next measure //Its not. sigh* how cant you heard such obvious piano here? the piano is obviously still continuing. its just.... weird when i play this without that note because of how obvious it is. not to mention there's also a slightly pitch change for the piano there
Ok I'm, going to take a break from this inconsistency stuff for a second.
Are you actually serious?????
What even is this?
1) There is no discernable difference between the heavier percussion sounds and the main melody (which seems to be something you entirely focused on for everything before this section)
2) This is actually the most boring and simple choice you could have made for this section, and may actually be the most boring part of the map
3) It initially implies that 3-note jump jacks will be the focus of the section and then deviates from that.
4) 3-note jacks are actually what make the most sense here
5) This section is way dumbed down presumably because jAcKs ArE HaRd
6) The SVs are actually worthless and seems like they were used solely because you realized this section was boring and wanted to "spice it up"
This literally follows all but one of my general complaints about the map.
........and then what? looks like you didnt have anything against these in general since you dont even provide solution (and probably i wont even accept because i can imagine how cluttered it will be if i do adding another note to make it hands for the claps)
This part is extraordinarily important that you fix. It is not good. It is also not my job to give you suggestions for how to fix it. However, I will give you a suggestion on top of Gekido-'s that has already been shared since you seem to be incapable of it on your own. // uh you're a modder. its essential to provide solution for every single point you think it could be better. especially in a qualified because every mapper will always think "my pattern works the best" since your ways of saying it is highly subjective with no backing up rather than rant. gather more ideas and then combined so both parties agree. isnt that what you modding for? (or you just literally hate everything in this set)
How about something like this? Ditching the jumps will allow you to make this section more representative of the section of music, incorporate the 3-note jacks like I said would likely fit the best here, and would also let you differentiate between the quiter and louder drum kicks. Not to mention that Gekido-'s also allowed for this while keeping essentially the same note density as yours. Also to note that in mine you *might* (a LOT of emphasis on this might) even be able to put an extra note before each jump and hand to even make my suggestion keep the same density as yours.[/color] // i'll be using gekido's for this time.
Back to general mods/inconsistency stuff
00:57:711 (57711|3,58205|0,58700|2) - hold on you can't be serious. This is literally not an audible sound. So you made it so the hitsounds were the only thing that these notes were mapped to. That is ridiculous. Its almost like you wanted to attempt a hitsound job like imperishable night but only for 3 notes. Why??? are you really serious lol. i cant even say anything, (and hey, 2 QAT already coming here and not even both of them mentioned this is being inaudible or anything of sort.) this is 100% hearable i assure you. and thats about it. Go over youtube then head over the video of this song in Lanota, the official chart also map this part. and so does this one.
Alright lets talk about a couple things. The first is that you literally cannot use the justification that Lanota maps those notes, because we are talking about two completely separate games, the rules of each game's mapping do not correspond to the other. Secondly, listening to it again I do hear the notes. HOWEVER, this does not excuse the fact that 1) the hitsounds make the sound seem like they are more obvious than they are, which isn't necessarily a problem but does make it so that people with hitsounds are forced to play in a different way than people who don't use hitsounds, which is awkward in a map that is not 100% keysounded and 2) it is almost impossible for me to hear the sound on normal volume. I don't know if that's just my hearing but its annoying to have notes correspond to sounds that I literally can't hear. Not to mention that they aren't even represented differently as the get louder, maybe something that could be done by changing the lengths of the LNs? //i'm implying if they do, then they are also aware that this "ghost notes" actually has sounds. they are just a little bit overshadowed by the 1/6 stream from the section before but i simply cannot ignore what is obvious in my ear. i'm also playing this without an fx volume and i'm still clearly heard it. at least when you are using headphones or something like that.
01:08:260 (68260|3,68260|2,68260|0,68754|0,68754|1,69249|1,69249|2) - Both notes being held at a given time change pitch for each one and have eqaully emphatic percussion hits attached, so there isn't much of a reason to connect the LNs like this as opposed to making them all separate LN hand things there isnt much but one: 2 LNs are to cover a relatively loud-long-noises happen here. tbf only using one LN kinda lost its feel to me Thats not what I suggested. I suggested making it so the LNs aren't connected, and what I mean by that is this: // i feel like that will kinda removed the LN gimmick i've been doing, although not relatively in a dense appearance (that happens in most of LN themed chart) but its somehow could be an approach towards the LN shields gimmick too in the 2nd half of the song later
01:16:172 (76172|3,76172|0,76667|2,76667|1,77161|2,77161|0) - Noticeable weaker synth and percussion, mapped exactly the same only pitch are changing. nothing sounds weaker or stronger. they are equal I would still disagree but w/e not the biggest deal
01:33:809 (93809|1) - This ln should start at 01:33:645 - its noticeably louder there (and probably a bit arbitrary if i do that since everything here is 1/2) I think I had a small debate about something like this in my ranked GD, where someone said that a synth sound started later because the peak of the sound started later than I had it. However, I would say that when it comes to synth, the peak is not as important to follow, since the nature of the sound means the peak will often not be where the sound instinctively starts
Ok I'm gonna go back to right here, where this section starts.
I don't know if mapping every 1/2 note is necessary. There are much more noticeable sounds that you seem to ignore (since you seem to be going for the melody + claps + kicks), namely the bass hit or whatever you want to call it. Plus there really isn't much of a discernable sound on every 1/2 beat that justifies this kind of mapping.
01:39:908 - HERE However, there is an extremely noticeable and loud percussion sound happening every 1/4 beat. This section should be noticeably different in terms of density/structure/patterning so that a transition through the obviously increasing intensity of the song can be seen and felt by players I strongly disagree with "loud percussion happening every 1/4 beat". apparently the 1/4 is only happening every time 1/2 beat is done, but thats just synth. the percussion will be probably at - 01:43:123 - and - 01:44:441 - here only. but i dont really want since it'lll break the overall concept i want to build here. like, the concept is goes on 1/2 from - 01:39:908 -, then goes 1/4 with the jtrill, then 1/8 with the Jstream
This one I'm confused about. How could you possibly disagree that the percussion that hits on every 1/4 note isn't noticeably louder starting at 01:39:908 - . It is so obvious that the sound is louder now. I fully stand by my statement, where there should at least be some difference in intensity between this section and the section right before it due to the quick change in percussion volume
02:02:326 - So some of these LNs don't really fit with the sound of the synth. Specifically, 02:02:491 (122491|3,122573|1,122738|3,122820|1,122985|2) - These 5 seem to be mapped to literally nothing heard at 100%, the buzz synth(?) pitch change for a moment and those LNs is to cover that The buzz synth by itself shouldn't add 5 extraneous lns before it. The LN for the buzz sound is totally fine, but the LN stream leading into it is massively overdone.
02:08:919 (128919|3) - Shouldn't this LN be twice as long i think that will be too cluttered since i'm also mapping kick 1/2 after Ok to be fair here it shouldn't be twice as long, only up to the red tick but either way, I'd still say its too short
02:11:557 - See, to me here, the synth really only deserves 1 LN representing it, whereas you could probably make the second one extended to help represent the background woosh thing. 02:12:051 - Like here, you have the woosh also mapped I would presume, though two of the LNs should be extended to represent this more clearly. probably, but i dont see anything thats "too wrong" in my current pattern mfw.
02:13:864 (133864|0,133947|0,134029|2,134112|2) - Why are these minijacks? They don't deviate at all from the 4 notes right before it from my perspective Jtrill doesnt seem to fit with the song situation. each jacks also mimicking the pitch and why am i making it jacks is to mimick the percussion. trill could works too but i think jacks is more fitting I didn't really say anything about jumptrills or anything, imo it would have just been better to see them as single streams rather than minijacks // that is.... kinda straightforward? the noise pitch (not the drum pitch) is divided into two here. if i do straight roll... idk that doesnt really suit my vision
02:15:183 - Shouldn't be a double
02:16:172 - Shouldn't be a double
02:19:963 (139963|1,139963|0,140128|0,140128|1) - Shouldn't be doubles?
02:20:458 (140458|3,140458|2,140623|2,140623|3) - Same?
Same for the patterns right after it too why? they are all obvious, loud drums I'll give you that. Didn't catch it the first time, was initially thinking that the ones i mentioned were just the same sound as the singles but youre right here
02:23:919 (143919|0,144002|1,144084|2,144167|0,144167|3,144249|1,144331|2,144414|3) - What was the logic behind this pattern? There is nothing supporting it, in fact, the synth only sounds on every 1/2 beat, not every 1/4th beat, so some of the LNs before it are also representing essentially nothing gradual pitch change. there's a slightly pitch change every 1/4 there. I would highly disagree. I would exclaim that, even if there was a minor pitch change every 1/4 beat, it is definitely not significant enough to warrant a completely separate LN
02:28:452 (148452|1) - Oh is this you trying to map the synth too??? This might just be you accidentally putting a ghost note in but if you want to seem like you are mapping the synth layer it with the percussion that you wanted it to map too at the lease instead of only placing notes that correspond to the synth when literally nothing else is there. if anyhting, thats not synths. its melody. all the synths is already mapped and could be recognized in where i put that loud hihat noises in HS I think youre missing the fact that the melody IS the synths, or at least the noticeable ones. Saying that youre not mapping the synths but you are mapping the melody is by itself a false statement because the melody is the synth. Either way its still a notable inconsistency // what i was try to saying is that i map them both but w/e might change later
02:25:650 (145650|2) - Speaking of ghost notes I'm heading back a few seconds because this is definitely one regardless of whether you were trying to map the synth or not. This goes for every time there is one of those jump to hand things ^ Like I said, melody is the synth, and plus, there is literally no sound happening there, not even the synth
02:44:689 - Ok if anything I'm almost certain these should be 1/3 LNs the wubs? .....thats not straight 1/3, nor that the wubs has a distinct start place to be heard. so i'm goes with simplifying to 1/4 secondary synths for the sake of gameplay This one is more subjective I suppose but I still hear them as much slower than 1/4 wubs
02:45:842 - Wait what. WHY. Stop trying to make your maps more varied for the sake of having variation. It's LITERALLY THE SAME SOUND. There is no justifiable reason for why you would randomly change the entire structure of the kiai halfway through, other than the fact that the drums (and possibly also the synth) most notably get louder in the second half. Why would you put more emphasis on a completely new sound in the map despite the emphasis relative to the other sound (ie the drums emphasis in comparison to the synth) stays the same? If anything the map should just get denser in general while following the same concept you had developed just prior to it. This is the most effective way to handle something like this, as opposed to changing the entire concept. Not to mention that this second half of the kiai doesn't even stay consistent with mapping the synth sounds to LNs so I don't even know what to say (eg 02:48:974 (168974|3,169057|0,169139|3,169221|0,169304|3,169304|1) - none of these notes having any LN relevancy)
so apparently you saying that i should make the 2nd kiai the same as 1st but denser? you literally just complaining about being "boring" yet suggesting more boring stuff.
No one stop you to try a new concept for every. section. alone.
First off, yes I am absolutely trying to tell you to make the second half the same as the first half but denser or with some notable increase in intensity. Second off, doing this does the exact opposite of what you think I meant by boring. Making the second half more intense to match with the increased intensity of the song keeps players on their toes and makes sure they aren't sitting in the same stuff despite song development. You could argue that your LNs do this, but my statement from the actual mod that it goes against a vast majority of what you have set up in the rest of the map // to start with, there is nothing wrong to estabilish a new set of ideas near the end of a song. say its because this part is a climax part. 2nd, this LN is fairly easy to manage, or at least, its not that hard compared with what i've been doing with the majority. its not like this part is filled with heavy shields and stuff as it is will totally turn the concept 180 degree from the first kiai. 3rd, as dense as it sounds, the distinct noise that could be hearded remain the same. the dense of the chorus part between kiais noticeable in 100% but the distinct noise stays. so if you actually talking about making this more dense, do i have to cover kicks by triple and claps with quads? or relatively adding more notes on 1/4? in theory it could but its becoming overemphasized too much. (i missed some i think so lets see how it goes later)
03:01:667 - Not sure why there are 1/4 notes placed between all the jumps tbh, since there isn't a noticeable sound there synths Ok sure there are synths but im almost certain they arent on the in-between beats
03:04:963 - Not a hand????? too cramped. with all the 1/4 happening Eh, I don't necessarily agree but w/e // its also done so i could transitioning the trill without havin an unecessary minijacks
03:06:117 (186117|2) - This note definitely shouldn't exist pointless awkward break. there's also synths. and its LNs to keep consistency 1) It is not a "pointless" awkward break if nothing in the music is supporting the note currently there. 2) The synths tone changes dont defend this in the same way they didnt before
03:05:787 - Also not sure why you made these all LN shields. Kind of deviates from anything else you do in the map, so it just feels random no response? // its feels like the song could have that? so why not. sequential long noises is obviously heard
Staying consistent imo isn't just a quality of a map keeping the same sounds mapped in the same way throughout a map or section, but also making logical decisions as to where you can deviate from ideas that you've already set up, something I brought up a multitude of times through my mod. Introducing ideas that don't make sense with respect to how you have been developing the map through the song show a lack of consistent additions and layering.i will holding this for like 2 weeks to fix necessary thing before i'm asking for a renomination to them (although idk if they still interested).
I'm agree with consistency. but, you really should hear how the song develops. This isnt your everyday generic anime/pop songs where they could have 3 choruses with similar orientation. leaving with no choice to stay consistent with layering, but they could do something to make the patterning more various and has an obvious separation in-between section to reflect each other.
I dont really get what you mean by "logical" as this map is clearly what you saying and what i've been doing ever since the start. each section has a different instrument orientation, thus the ideas of different patterning and sometimes different layering
Take the ending chorus, for example, where Rivals applies an idea that makes some amount of logical sense with respect to the rest of the map (albeit a little bit weak in terms of difficulty comparatively but that isn't necessarily a huge problem), but then through the second half, adds in a completely new layer (that being of long notes), despite the only change in the song being related to the volume of that section. I would consider this a random introduction of a new idea despite no similar introductions of ideas in the song, though maybe that's just an overreaction on my part.
This song, outside the 2 chorus, there is no place that have a similar instrument orientation throughout. so the consistency patterning you've been saying here are a little too much to ask as the song literally have different concepts each section. thus, the idea differs on each section. The first half of the song consists of relatively easy-to-follow rythmic, with exception on 1/3 section which is quite hard. The 2nd half after the burst, it goes relatively hard compared with the first half where you faced an SV section that test up your reading (and acc), then a syncopated drum section, ended with burst and relatively simple LN shields. into the chorus i made it to follow melod+synth as well with the percussion. the 2nd then goes almost the same with additional LN to cover primary melody as to test the agility (idk how to worded it clearly)
Its all to justifies the difficulty of being (almost) 5* because of the burst. we literally hear complaints about some maps that is mostly easy but its almost 6* just because the spike, in comparison it doesnt fair with the majority of difficulty and cause a rage for being "PP giveaway"
Not yet updated for now
