I'd like to thank Skypanda, ATOB, AMLT, Kkstrong, and everyone else who helped and inspired me to put this pack together. Really, thanks guys.
I also included my favorite picks from Quantum Matter in an extension, so I'd love to thank Kablizzy and Life247 for both giving me a guiding hand and playtesting, respectively. Entirely appreciated.

Without further unneeded procrastination, I present the epitome of my mapping up to this point... Cosmic Matter.

9 is easily the best level here. Wonderfully episodic, and the atmosphere is great. The others are all ok; composed gameplay but no real character. It may be me, but there are some overtly influenced maps in here as well. But overall it's quite a good pack.

Cosmic Matter 3/5 - S'ok. Didn't have much to it, and some parts were a bit awkward as well. Not bad though.
Revolutionae 4/5 - Simple, great fun.
Upward Spiral 3/5 - Again, not much to it, but still not bad. Chaingun part was the best.
Border Crossing 4/5 - Simple, great fun. :P
Mountain-home Fortress 3.5/5 - Nice tiles and gameplay, just a little lackluster is all.
Pit Trap 3.5/5 - I'm getting a bit of deja vu here. :P Cool map. I like the little underground chambers.
Mechanical Platforms 3/5 - I like the gameplay a bit, but again, some parts are a bit awkward.
Hot Air Balloons 3.5/5 - Running around in this map was fun. :D
Temple 4.1/5 - The chaingun was very well placed in coordination with the gold and thwumps. Very nice!
Pipe Dream 3/5 - The seeker didn't really pose much of a threat, but the rocket was nice.
Swamp 3.5/5 - Very nice tiles. The gameplay wasn't half-bad either.
Aquarius 2.5/5 - Seemed like a filler to me. One of the more generic maps in the pack, unfortunately. :/
Kelp 3/5 - Overall, above average. IT was fun, however like a few others in this pack had it's awkward moments.
Besieged 3.5/5 - Although it's the last map, it isn't the best. However, it was still pretty fun to play in the end. :)

Overall, I did actually like this pack. It had it's bad moments, and it's good moments, as most mappacks do. Still, I liked it, and this pack in my opinion deserves a:

3.5/5. Good job! :)

I much preferred this to the original. I'm glad to see you've come out of your shell a little more with these maps. They still have a few generic roots, but it's actually turning into a great, enjoyable style for me. I look forward to everthing else that'll Matter too. ;)

Solid mappack. As I was AGDing it just now, I kept trying to figure out which influences were shining through, and I couldn't pin one down. I felt some Vehemence, a little atob, and there was definitely one mahi style map.

On the whole, good pack.

Oh God
*Head in hands*
I know what this means.

Orange- N cannot be spoken, or even thought about in my household. If my parents ever found out that I have played N since the cleansing, my life would be ruined. I keep the game in a multi-passworded .rar on a USB flash drive inside a locked boron alloy container that requires two keys to open (I keep one under the 64th hammer in my piano, and the other one in a small section of removable ceiling in the corner of the attic) hidden in a wall compartment lined with aluminium foil to prevent sonar detection behind my 375 kg cupboard, which is bolted to the floor - the only way to reach it is to abseil outside the fourth floor window and use a screwdriver to unfasten the screws holding the secret brick in place on the opposite side of the wall, but the screwdriver must be a specific type like the one I own, since if any other screwdriver comes into contact with the screws, the entire building will explode, as will a seperate charge placed inside the boron alloy container, rendering the USB useless. Even once the container is retrieved, attemping to open it without the arming pin in place (which is kept inside the battery compartment of my Maglite) will cause the water reservoirs lining the container to burst and react with the caesium lining, causing the container to burst into flames - the only way to prevent this is to use the arming pins to shut off the reservoirs with a sliding steel door. The USB itself contains an accelerometer linked to an explosive charge, meaning that if the USB detects its own movement speed as being greater than 5 cm/s, it will explode - any person attempting to steal it would have to move at a uselessly slow speed. Once plugged into a computer, the USB will upload a ghost virus onto it, leaving no traces. Only the right password can deactivate this virus, and if it is left on the computer for more than six hours, it will format all drives.

As you can see, I take my N playing very seriously.

Guiseppi- I'd much rather watch animals get boned in the ass.

Yanni- If it's glad, it's not rape.

Tsukatu- I refuse to use throw-away bags for such a frequent purpose as buying groceries. Instead, I've collected the hair of my two pet dogs and have woven them together into an all-natural, 100% environmentally friendly bag that I bring with me everywhere. And when I buy products that come in glass and plastic containers, I track down the company that packages them and ship back their containers so that they don't take up space in landfills.

Yeah, I use plastic.

Tsukatu- I hear Ebony Online is great, too. Cum save your princess, my lord!

KinGAleX- I did it on the couch a little while ago.

I like it. None of the maps seem extraordinarly good, and none really shine out that much from the rest, but they were all decent and the aesthetics and atmosphere were generally great.

I tried for a figure head; unfortunately it didn't pull through.
