“Too many anime maps? Not enough anime maps?
Take matters into your own hands and learn how to map!”
Last fall, a group of mappers set out to catalog, review, and consolidate all written knowledge on community mapping for Beat Saber custom songs. We found more than 26 written guides and 15 individual tutorial videos – some current, and some woefully out of date – so we embarked on a project to work with the original authors and repackage it all into a wiki format that was organized, consistent, and easier to use.
BSMG Mapping Wiki
The new mapping wiki launched in December 2019 as part of the BSMG Wiki overhaul and, while a wiki is never really done, all of the essentials and then some are up and running.
In #mapping-discussion ask questions, post screencaps or video snippets for feedback, troubleshoot issues, and generally socialize with a chunk of the mapping community. In #testplays, complete some basic information and post your work-in-progress maps for community testing and feedback before you upload to release.
Mapping Knowledge Thanks
More than thirty community members have made contributions to the content in the mapping mapping wiki. Without their efforts dating back to the early days of Beat Saber in 2018 and their permission to mold their content into a new form, none of this would be possible so THANK YOU to each and every one of you for getting us here!
We are also working on some things like live mapping tutorial streams with Q&A and maybe even panels with well known mappers so let us know in the comments or come hang out in #mapping-discussion if that might be of interest! We’re glad to have you aboard!
