just finished playing both of these maps a few times and i thought to give a few thoughts on them! since they're honestly both really fun and quite unique in terms of visuals or gameplay!

for starlight station, there really isn't anything i have to complain about aside from the textures used being a bit bland and samey, but they are at least consistent with each other, which is good! another thing is the lack of any decoration items around the stage, making it look a little bit unfinished or empty in places, which might be the intention, but either way, i think visual flare can definitely add a lot to the excitement of a stage! the last thing i want to mention is that the shortcuts throughout the stage feel, a lil generic and kinda weak, shortcuts where you just cut through the middle path of a 2 laned road usually aren't the best in making the player feel rewarded and often save extremely little time, the latter point only applies to the first cut tho since the second one has a red spring panel, which helps a lot with making it faster!

overall, this is a very decent and enjoyable stage, i liked going through it a lot!

for aerial battlegrounds: i honestly just really adore that stage, it's so damn good, you did wonderfully with it both visually and design wise! my only real issue is, again, a lack of decoration items, making some parts of the stage feel empty or unfinished, but aside from that, it's very good! (this isn't really an issue to fault the map for, but i did notice that the shortcut at the start can be inconsistent to take when using hard/firm sneakers, which, is obviously something pretty hard to account for, so i don't blame you at all!)

i'm really excited to see what other stages you end up making!

Thank you for the critique and positive remarks, Claudia! Since I recently just started making maps, I wanted to make sure that the maps worked on a functional level before I went on ahead to make it better on a visual level. Starlight Station and Aerial Battlegrounds will both be getting some QoL updates in the later future (and Starlight will be getting some design changes as well for better flow). I'm rather glad that you enjoy my maps and hope you'll continue to look forward to them getting better!
