After a bunch of school and work I have resumed work on this mapset. I'm hoping to wrap map 2 up pretty soon and hopefully start on a third map.

Version 1.0 is here! We've got an entire new map, a cool difficulty selection map, and 64k+ is now required to play this.

Nice update, I playedthrough your map, and it's good as the first one.

Note that the enhancer version 0.5 isn't suitable, use latest atm (0.6).

Bugs?
- Slime doesn't hurt me even if I don't wear protective suit.
- Red teleporter pad can hurt me like I'm standing on a red lava. Probably only the output part of it.

The knowledge that you can't bump your own thread fills me with determination.

I am still working on this believe it or not. I have mostly finished the detail pass of the second map and am working on adding secrets and extra polish where I see fit. I'm still not 100% on a few parts and haven't decided if its worth it to remake critical parts of the map or not.

After this is done I have an idea for what I want to do for the final map. I need to make a bunch of textures for it so it'll be a while before any screenshots happen.

*squints at timestamps for this thread* I guess its time for some screenshots after over a year.

I have added a lot of tweaks to the second map and a few to the first map as well. Ideally I would have 2 more maps, a regular map and a boss map, but it depends on what all I am able to pump out while I'm in the mood for mapping. I really want to get this to a place where I can release another update of this and 64k+ before I vanish for another year lol

Update: 1.1 is up now. No new maps this time, but there have been significant improvements and expansions to the second map and the first map has been expanded a bit as well. Unless any major bugs crop up these maps are in a final status. I am attempting to focus on making more maps at this point.
