Map Data

Description This map is a lot of things.

It's my 287th map, regardless of whether the counter says it's my 250th, which it's not. I've been on a quick search (completing my deleted archive) and there's definitely 287 maps (not counting resub originals or that one I made to show someone else what to do with their level)

It's a balls-to-the-walls rocket dodger, just like my old maps.

It's inspired by Lord_Day, hopefully this map compares well to his.

It's the debut of the second chapter of my series, The Arborist's Edition. Thought it would make a short and punchy opening level.

How many pieces of gold can be taken away from a pile before it no longer remains a heap? How many appearances have to be stripped away before something no longer exists?

I liked this map it was very fun and hard! :) Hey GTM Wanna make a collab? I really am in the mood to! ;)

Cool map,

and could you rate my map this time, I could use a rate. xD
how you came to become human
i don't know


You just made this map uneditable for the map pack. Oh well, there's not much I'd like to change anyways.
Nice map. 4\5.
I want to preserve it so that I can make changes when the second txt is released, whcih won't be a while I assure you. All subsequent TAE maps will have ratings disabled, so the complete version will be available on NUMA without resubs.

holy cow

i can delete all these comments!

but of course i wont. that would be an abuse of power.

hey GTM

you know that comment at the botom of the page where you say "you're one to talk T_T"

it says i can delete that o.O

No there arent?

Seriously, I love this kind of atmosphere. Anything less would be bland.


rofl@eganic. i didn't even check your name, but read your posts thinking you were atob, and i laughed quite a bit when i realized. anyway, i like the gold, but there are too many rockets.

yea i liked it

fun rocket dodging, i dont think you needed to get rid of the corner golds :/



That wouldn't be cool or consistent with the nice little theme I've got going on.
so the ninja just...falls to his death

you can't sue jesus

ganteka bans eganic
ganteka sues eganic
ganteka waves goodbye to eganic

Nice map, love the gold. Taking out the 3 gold piles was good ideas imo
Solid, like the fall
and/or stealing avatars against the rules?

if i get banned and this was real life, i could sue :D
ganteka is great
ganteka is good
love ganteka
and he shall love you
Anyways, back to the map? Or is it superseded now?

For below reasons
