[1]
- To the best of my knowledge, the following map fits all requirements to be approved: YES
- The following map contains no unfair hidden features: YES
- The following map contains nothing against the PB2 Code of Conduct: YES
- I have read and understand fully the Required Reading for posting a Map Approval Request: YES
- I have read and understand fully the Map Approval Rules: YES

[2]
- Map Name: Rainfall
- Map ID: lpzimm-fall
- Link to Map Page: https://www.plazmaburst2.com/?s=9&a=&m= ... &id=992031
- Link to Map Demo: https://www.plazmaburst2.com/?s=2&map=lpzimm-fall

- Give a brief description of the map: Once I saw someone falling down but they shot someone while they were falling and it looked cool so I made this map.
- Why you think the map deserves to be approved: This map has unique gameplay - the soft-fall center and the long jumps you can make are fun.
- Any other comments: Vars are synced. Players have a lot of control over the elevators. The elevator control + var syncing might mess with the var syncing a bit I would need to play test that aspect more. I'm considering adding timer delays to the elevator buttons, but they can't be too long.

Before you say "needs more cover": PLEASE playtest the map in multiplayer. The map plays fine in that aspect.

1st playtest

Yes the map as you say lacks cover
but the main problem are the top and the bottom
Spoiler: Show More


I would suggest to make this dirt bg be grey or make it have more brown saturation.

The team that is in the elevator side can reach the top faster make the elevator have slower speed.

Some crit from the chat:
Stryde: Right side relies on elevator that could be in the top state when they want to use it
> In COOP, elevator starts in bottom state. In DM, side symmetry doesn't matter.

lpzimm-fall (2nd playtest)
- Right side of map needs another path to get up to top of map
- Elevator should be synced (if it isn't)
- More cover is required in top part of map, lower part of map (including water) - see first playtest for line of sight issues with such a small map where weapons can shoot across whole map

Already is

Added even more cover on top, on the bottom I added a door in the middle, LMK how you guys like it.
