    What is Carnival?
    Carnival is a full scale recreation of a carnival fun fair.
    With convivial carousels and boisterous beguilements,
    this fun fair has it all!


    ┣━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━┫


    Features:

    1 Carousel and waiting area
    1 Teacup ride and waiting area
    1 ferris wheel
    1 Petting zoo with 6 stables
    1 Racecar track with 3 bleachers
    1 Rollercoaster with waiting line
    1 Hamburger restaurant
    4 Food stands with varying equipment
    4 Sitting Areas with seats+tables
    1 Lion exhibit
    1 cotton candy stand
    1 ticket stand
    1 parking lot with 10 cars
    2 bathrooms


    ┣━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━┫

    Notes:
    A full sweep of the map takes around 4 minutes for one hider.
    There are no block piles, (by popular demand). :)
    The size and shape of this map is very similar to Pripyat.
    All surrounding areas are barriered off.
    This map is very usable if you want to try to make your own spot.
    Seeker area is in the tunnel to the parking garage.

    ┗━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━┛


    I was having trouble deciding what to do outside of the map.

    PLEASE leave any suggestions you have, they will
    be very helpful in making the map better for everyone.
    Thanks!

    It looks like a great map, but I don't think adding diamond as a playable block is a good idea. It's 6000 tokens rather than the regular 2000 because its unplayable by default, unlike the 2000 token blocks such as leaf.
    I don't mean this in a bad way, but the places where you HAVE put down diamonds in the map itself looks forced just so it can be playable.
    On a more positive note, I love the layout of the map and the sizing looks like you really thought it all over c:

    Yeah, I really didn't think about that. You made a good point, but changing that kind of block after using it so vitally throughout the map would be very difficult.

    I can see how that might really suck since you have used it quite a bit, but I'm not sure how owners and developers might see this because that would make diamond being a 'special' block pointless.

    Hey there!

    About a year ago, I was very active when it came to map creation, as I enjoyed making random builds/hubs. However, I haven't built in quite some time, so my feedback might not be as useful as others who actively build.

    Firstly, I do like the idea of using the diamond blocks around the map. Even-though it is meant to be rare, it gives the players who have purchased this block a great opportunity to use it well. Secondly, although I do like the map itself, I feel like more detail/features could be added to the open space pathways/roads. (As shown here) I'm not sure what you could do, if anything, to change this, however, my first impression after seeing it was the feeling that something was missing. Maybe using wooden fences to create little streetlights or small builds to resemble game stalls/food carts. I did see one stall on the map, but in my opinion, maybe adding a couple of other little things around would make it much more enjoyable for players, as they can explore more options for hiding spots.

    Either way, I like the look of the map and I want to wish you the best of luck on your submission.

    Th
    Thank you for the feedback,
    I totally agree with you on adding small little items and details here and there.
    I am planning on making some streetlights, strings of banners, and other small food carts as you described.
    A new photo album will be provided soon.

    Even though only having almost 200k points, I can't really rate it, it's layout is close to pineapple port for me which is what I like. My personal dislike is that it just doesn't get the HnS feeling, but still 9/10.
