Hi. Not complaining. Just asking, with all the members on this site, why do we not have a dirge of new maps/games coming out more frequently. Personally, I know I am challenged when contemplating a new design, that will be "fresh & new", but surely not all the members are as indecisive as me? What has happened to the creative juices?

I used to make more maps, but when nobody gives it thumbs up or thumbs down, it's discouraging.

I play all the new maps, but rarely thumb up. Please keep making new great maps.

I would love to have more discussion on how to improve the maps.
I rarely create new versions as there is nearly never any feedback...

Yeah, I just launched a couple of my old maps and already got one thumbs down with no comment as to how it could be improved.

I'm really busy at work right now, so I just don't have the time to put out new maps. I have a ton of "never posted" new maps that aren't finished, creep wise. When I post a new map, generally, I have custom generated the creep spawns and have played through most of it a few times. All that takes time. For the most part, right now, I repost liked maps, until I'm free enough to post a new one.

Ok, I will try and start commenting in the comments section on all the maps.

Old topic, same problems. It would be great to hear other players opinion about new maps. Also not so many players votes yes or no. Even if you don't play becouse of to high entry fee, please let mapmakers know about that. I enjoy making maps, and i hope you enjoy playing!

as i had not enough energy and time to finish testing the musltyplayer rating formula, i felt a little guilt. but maybe i'm back to designing some maps. i hope i'll come up with some fresh challenges for us soon

In my case, I'm always trying to make a design that hasn't been there before. But lately I came to the point where I think that a cool design along with basic creeps isn't enough anymore, and so I'm trying to make it more difficult with twists like limited powerups, limited space or the necessity of very fast juggling. The ideas for new maps often come from things I see in my real life (Sierpinki carpet) or on the internet (Nyan Cat) and sometimes even music (Dark Woods Circus). But always the balancing and getting statisfied with the map is what really takes a long time.

Here are the maps that I'm referring to, along with some others that I'm working on:
