RE: No more Jump scare maps....it is getting unoriginal.

What you do to get a good jump scare is not have one every 5 seconds.

Make them rare. If they're rare they're more scary and makes the map less of a Jump scare map.

Add other scares too, if jump scares are your only scare, you really are unoriginal.

RE: No more Jump scare maps....it is getting unoriginal.

Jumpscares are one of the whole reasons I play CS's.
I mean,
Most the people that develop custom stories can't create a good story besides like.
THAER ZOMBEES IN THEE BAISMENT!!!

But I tell you this the one's like that they can make jumpscares that make my heart stop working for a second.

But I do love the good story lines too. They creep me out.

Well, the type of custom stories people enjoy differs, and some people, like you, enjoy the ones riddled with jumpscares. And I have no problem with the fact that many like playing them Smile But donĀ“t you agree that the jumpescares that are trending right now are are very overused: flying naked bodies, randomly spawning monsters etc?

Flying naked guys make no sense and only deserve to be in PewDie's levels because he's the only one that gets scared of them

And do you know what would make them not awful? If creators stopped using so many jump scares and also bothered to play test them.

The only time I've seen them fit the story is in the original Amnesia campaign.

^This^. Yes I do agree with all that's being said here, but it is getting a little out of hand.

RE: No more Jump scare maps....it is getting unoriginal.

Why is it that 90% of the threads on this forum are just people complaining about stuff in mods they don't like? Please keep it to yourself, no one cares, that's why after you complain, nothing changes. Jump scares are here, and they are always going to be here, that's all there is to it. I don't mean to sound like a douche, (sorry if I do) but ever since coming to this thread, I've seen SO many threads that are just people complaining.

That because we have high standards, because we are adult people. We don't want to waste our time downloading and playing maps made by kids who can't map. I'm going to start reviewing the maps I play, so that other people don't have to bother downloading stories that are horrible.

Ok, so the way you've replied signifies that you think I'm 5 years old, this is wrong. I'm just as much of an adult as you, and I never said that I enjoy the cheesy jump scare maps that were made badly. I was simply stating that it's annoying that people only use this forum for complaining, when it could be used for something more productive, like giving modders suggestions on how to make your custom story good. Why hasn't anyone made a thread on about giving people pointers on how to get rid of bad textures or things like that? That's all I was saying. I am just as annoyed with these cheesy little jump scare maps that have bad design as the rest of you are, the only difference is, that I don't just whine about it on the forums. If I knew how to make maps, I'd help other people make them better, instead of just crying about it.
