Since coming back to Minecraft a few months ago, one of the things I've noticed is how much of a cesspool the mapping section has become compared to back in 2012 when I stopped visiting this site originally. There were plenty of bad maps back then of course, but so many maps these days just do the exact same things over and over and over again, and while the good maps have gotten VERY impressive thanks to command blocks and new redstone techniques developed over the years, the bad maps seem to have gotten worse. What are the custom map tropes you want to see stop already?
For me, I want to see people stop lazily and desperately throwing mazes into their maps to pad them out as a result of a lack of creativity. Mazes aren't fun. There is no skill involved, no interesting mechanics, nothing. They're lazy, boring, and ridiculously obnoxious. Same goes with mini, out of place, parkour courses. Parkour maps are fine, but they've been done so much that it's just irritating when little parkour sections are thrown into maps just because.
And of course, the FNAF maps need to stop altogether. There are way too many of them and honestly, if I wanted to play FNAF, which I don't because it's not even a good game (in my opinion), I'd just play FNAF, not some cheap knockoff in Minecraft.
What about you guys? (And I'm not trying to be mean or anything, it just sucks to see SO MANY map makers not even attempt to create something original or interesting when Minecraft gives you near limitless possibilities.)
So I was working on this really cool resource pack a while ago, but bad progress nonwithstanding, I think I found something much better... I'm probably gonna release a couple of maps soon as unrelated well.Until we meet again...
