    Rejected Mushroom Forest

    Hey guys, This is mostly a repeat of what was said above, but in its current state the map isn’t ready to be put into testing. Again, a key issue is that the majority of this map's aesthetic is being carried by work that isn’t your own. Taking inspiration from Eremilion’s builds is fine, but it...

    Rejected Mushroom Forest

    Hey guys, Prior to official map judging I wanted to pass on these thoughts about the map. It’s a pretty unique theme, a good twist on the usual nature/forest maps and utilizes many newer blocks. That said, my immediate concern is that one of the main features of the map, the custom mushrooms...

    Rejected map?

    Thanks for the submission Rick, but we'll be rejecting this map. The extreme amount of entities makes it very laggy, and the map itself is essentially just a 5-wide tube. An SnD map should adhere to the guidelines found here: https://athiosmc.com/threads/map-submission-guidelines.16/

    Rejected Overgrown Path

    Hey NotReallySure, Thanks for the submission, unfortunately we won’t be accepting this map. The majority of this map is very small and straightforward, without many interesting gameplay elements. The alternate cave route is cramped, making it less ideal for pushing forward. Your latest updates...

    Boom Town

    Hey tababysuper and Laddoss, We will not be currently accepting this map, however I think that with some changes this could be one of the best maps on the server. Here are the reasons we won’t be accepting the map: The bases are cramped. Even though they are more open then they initially...

    The Bleeder

    Athios Soup

    I will add a small wooden box that may or may not contain a spider. The box itself is unremarkable, except that it may (or may not) contain a spider. If pressed, all I will divulge is that this box could possibly yet also possibly not contain a spider. The wood of the box is made of maple (and...

    Rejected Mount Doom

    Hey SirDodgy! This is a really cool looking map but gameplay-wise we have some concerns, so we’ll be rejecting this map for now. The approach to the base, both above and below routes, is extremely narrow and straight. Archers and explosives would certainly dominate here. The base itself is...

    Rejected Outlaw's Mayhem

    Hey Spicy, thanks for the map sub. Unfortunately we’ll be rejecting this map, but hopefully this feedback helps. Aesthetically, the map isn’t very appealing. Buildings are very simple in shape, and most of the surfaces are smooth and made of just one block type. The pathway mix you’ve chosen...

    Athios Maps (oh wow more data ooooo)

    I love me some data collection. To help with visualization, here's a chart: Key (See Triggs' descriptions above) RED - Arena BLUE - Route oriented YELLOW - Base oriented PURPLE - Tiered This chart also includes the new maps being added with today's update. A few interesting takeaways...

    Accepted Bonsai

    Congrats, we’ll be moving this map into testing! That said, a few things we noticed: 2 tall vegetation at bomb room (bad for PvP) Dark spots near pandas Lots of random leaf blocks. Meant to be bushes? Hard to tell. Stone blocking path out of authors room We’ve fixed the 2-tall veg issue, but...

    Accepted Voyager

    This map has entered the testing phase, well done! Not much else to say. As said in the other post, we’ll be watching how it’s received by the community, but make sure to take your own notes as well. If you have any updates or changes on the map, you’re free to message them to us directly.

    Rejected Trench Warfare

    While this map looks pretty decent aesthetically (very cool tanks!), the gameplay on this map is very similar to the gameplay we have on various other maps. Additionally, the trenches/tunnels are very cramped and unpleasant to fight in. At the present moment, this is just not the type of map we...
