I would very much like to celebrate the wrapping of a new TLMC, it is a lot of work from several people to do each one of these, and no less from all of you guys, whom do the work to craft the best, most appetizing maps each time around, so I would like to thank all of you, and to celebrate our TLMC#17 Finalists!
That said, this thread is dedicated mostly to maps which didn't made it to the judging step.
The public sheet with the corresponding scoring of the maps can be found at:
It will certainly take me a bit to get to every single one of you, so in the meantime it is highly recommended to check out previous Feedback Threads and "Mapping Guidelines" previously made.

As an extra note there is my youtube channel where I have been uploading Mapmaking feedback videos for finalists and non-finalists alike, it is highly recommended for y'all to peruse around. This time around there wasn't a Pre-Judging Feedback Stream, but we did have a video going over Quality Assurance steps and general optimization which I am sure will come very handy to the newer mapmakers. And remember, just because we might have not gone over *your specific map*, it doesn't mean that your map might not share issues which were covered there, so be sure to review it!

Before We Begin
For time reasons, all mappers can ask feedback for 3 maps, id like to give as much feedback as possible, but it is simply not possible for me to cover all maps, in the same manner, avoid asking "what's wrong with map X", instead focus on what areas you suspect could have been problematic
Submit your questions on the following fashion:
- Map Name
- Category the map was submitted to
- Map Overview
- Specific questions about your map
Just like on TLMC#14 and TLMC#15 might be videos this time around, I might actually do them all as videos actually, but it will depend, we will see. And in the same fashion, other judges might also join, or might not, it depends on their own personal timeframes.
