    Hello everyone!

    This map is built by traeumendes and doesendes.

    The name of the map is: Mountain Valley.


    What to say about the map: it represents a mountain valley with one big and one small house which offer hiding spots in the inside, a forest and a small cave behind a big waterfall. We also built a road a little higher up with two different cars and a campfire near the road. The map is full of little Easter eggs and allusions. The waterfall is safe so you can't swim up. We tested the map with different blocks and the chance to win is around 50% : 50%.


    We built this map because it could add more variety. There are many gamers who play very often Hide & Seek and thats why they know most of the hiding spots, so it’s more easy for them to win the rounds. But with a new map they get to to know the map first, which takes time, so that the chances to win are equal for all players at the beginning.


    We hope you like the map and that it will be included as Hide & Seek map.


    If there is something that speaks against the inclusion of the map we would appreciate if you could tell us so that we can improve them.


    Yours sincerely traeumendes and doesendes

    Hey! I really like your new map and it looks like it took lots of time! But don't you think there would be quite more hiding spots? I mean, it's the HNS map so players would need to hide somewhere. Anyways, good luck! I hope it will be added in game! ^^

    @Hosticka deliberatley we didn't show all the spots so that there is still the chance to find other spots

    This is a good start for your first Hide and Seek map, but there are a lot of things that need to be changed.

    The first and most glaring issue is what Hosticka said above. From the looks of it, there doesn't seem to be many good hiding spots for the blocks you set forward. The key to having a good map is making sure that it features spots that are located all over the map rather than just inside houses, on top of cars, etc.

    The second issue I see with this map is the size. Most of the maps in hide and seek are around or a little bit smaller than this size. Those maps are often very detailed and have many spots concentrated in a small area. As mentioned in my point above, From the overview pictures and the pictures down on the ground, I can't see good spots or really any spots at all, which is the opposite of what you want in a small map like this.

    Another thing that I think could be improved is the terrain. It seems very simple, and doesn't contrast well with the other blocks and structures around it. The WorldEdit used on the terrain was also very apparent by means of shaping it up and smoothing it down. You either need to be rough with the terrain or hand smooth it, there is usually no in between when making good terrain.

    The final thing I want to point out about the map as a whole is the correlation about the different things around the map. There seems to be only 2 houses, some hot air balloons, a steampunk looking zeppelin, and a... highway? Making sure that the different things around the map work with each other is a big key to making a nice looking map. Instead of just making a bunch of things that look half decent, make a few of the same things that look really good. I really like the houses so I think that you can remove the highway or create some more houses.

    With that in mind, I think that you should still try to improve and strive towards having a cohesive and well made map and keep us updated as you either try to improve or start a new map.

    Good luck :D

    I think it's a very nice map, and the thing you said about gamers knowing all the best hiding spots is 100% true and I 100% agree. But you know, You can maybe add more interesting things onto the map like some the other maps do. Paris is FULL with hiding spots (not all good) in such a small area.

    I like it. It would be a nice map to add, tho I too think it needs just a tad more magic to it if you know what I mean.
    I would love to see this added to the game
