Figured I'd update this because something.

Quick Links:



----------------------------------------------

General Info:


  • I have been playing n on and off since 2005, and actively highscoring/speedrunning since 2007. I joined NUMA in mid 2008, although that would've been sooner had it not been for a glitch with email validations at the time.

  • I am primarily a speedrunner, but I will make the occasional highscore too. All of my runs posted here are created in real time. I never have nor will post a demo created in fbf or underclock mode. (This does not mean I won't ever use them, just that I won't post a run in which I do)

  • I have no idea when I beat n... I think it was sometime in 2009..? I also haven't really bothered to beat all of the NReality columns (110's), but I'll probably get around to that someday...

  • I am usually willing to playtest a map, and am pretty good at finding possible cheats or unintended routes. If you want me to check if your map is cheatable, feel free to ask.


----------------------------------------------

Series:


  • Metanet-esque [nmaps.net] — A set of maps made to represent those found in the main game, both in gameplay and aesthetics.

  • Simple-Challenge-esque [nmaps.net] — A set of short and often difficult maps designed to not only test your skills like a normal simple challenge, but also to teach you new tricks you can use for highscoring and speedrunning.

  • At-Night [nmaps.net] — A set of race maps, all of which were finished at the time in the title. This series has been inactive for some time, but I may pick it up again.

  • Enemy-combination-experiments [nmaps.net] — A set of maps featuring unpopular and/or uncommon combinations of enemies in order to help determine whether or not those enemies can be used well together in a map.

  • notaseriousmap [nmaps.net] — A set of maps I made just for the hell of it -- they may or may not be terrible.

Currently Running Contests:

None

Reccomended Mappers: (In alphabetical order)

Note: The following are all people who I personally find to not only have/had a unique and solid grasp of mapping, but have also been an excellent source of inspiration. It is very difficult to get on this list, so don't feel too bad if you're not on it.


  • astheoeansblue (atob) [nmaps.net] — Inactive for some time now, but had a keen understanding of the balance of aesthetic and playable qualities necessary to create a great map. Be sure to read his map theory [nmaps.net].

  • Barabajagal [nmaps.net] — Although his maps may not be as aesthetically complex as some of the other mappers' here, they possess a high degree of gameplay barely rivaled by any other.

  • Cooby [nmaps.net] — One of the members of the Mirage [nmaps.net] collab team. Although he is not very active, his maps often featured interesting concepts while delivering quality aesthetics. Creator of my personal favorite map, Procrastination [nmaps.net].

  • PALEMOON [nmaps.net] — Back! His maps often present a high quality, unique kind of gameplay accompanied by a quirky aesthetic style.

  • Pheidippides (pheidi) [nmaps.net] — Much like atob, has a keen understanding of the importance of balancing gameplay and aesthetics.

  • tktktk [nmaps.net] — One of the few whose maps possess a level of gameplay that truly rivals Barabajagal's. Occasionally highscores as well.
