(Era) Random levels that I've made in the past four months

I don't have much to say to be honest. I hope you like the levels & I'll take any feedback. Keep in mind, I've found a few errors that I didn't bother fixing because they aren't really noticeable. Also, if you dislike the levels, I could careless. (Some of these levels are a few months old, but most are recent) Thank you

Wow, these levels are done pretty well. The only criticism I have is screenshots 3,4 and 9.
This is just because of how the levels are laid out and look boring and ugly. For example with the beach level (screenshot 4) that grass hook kind of design should be made more subtle. Where as in the other beach level (screenshot 9) there's not enough interest in the level.

The same kind of goes for screenshot 3. It definitely does not look like a hat shop and that mass of green just makes it look terrible.

Other then that I love the shape of most of your buildings. I really do hope to see most of these get on to era. Good luck!

yeah the beach levels need some work, try something different in the areas where the water meets the sand and the sand meets grass...the way they are now just seem awkward

The second one is the only one I actually liked, and took a second look at.
But still through that you could use a little more creativity in the level itself. Without the images the level should still look good, I don't see that happening with fill tool floors and mundane outlines showing off a lack of creativity or time detailing. (This is the same throughout most of the inside levels)

Keep honing your skills, and adapt your own style. I see a total change in styling between levels. Nothing that would make me think 'Oh, Doc made this!' if I should ever see it used somewhere.

All but the last two levels are too large and open.

Perhaps you guys didn't get the picture- the beaches are suppose to be plain, old beaches. I'll admit they could have more detailing where the water meets the sand, but than again; the beaches were some of the first levels I created with Era's tile set... Notice the first one has the Windows 7 GUI.? I made that a while ago...
Not sure why I'm getting criticism when I asked you not to do it.
In all honestly, I basically put these up here because I don't think I'll be leveling anymore. Although I find it fun creating levels,~, if they're made for no reason, what's the point?

I don't know why you'd want to quit leveling for that reason. Find a server, get hired there (which I doubt you will have no trouble doing with those levels), and stick them on the server.
Those levels are great. I have no criticisms except that some of the grass tiles in one or two of the levels is just one big, bland green patch, but that could be easily fixed.
If you're going to continue leveling, keep up the good work.

I hardly log on anymore because there's nothing for me to do. When I do log on, I either idle on the Start Menu or I idle at unstick me on Era.

Although I like leveling, I'm NOT going to work on any non-Player World servers. I don't like leveling with the pics1.png tile set because I grew up on Era, so I only level with modern tile sets.

There is no point what-so-ever for creating levels that won't get used in game. Yes, it's fun..., but hanging-out with friends playing COD is even more fun. I'll be honest, If I had the chance to work for iEra or Era, I'd take it. I'm not going to try anymore though. If I had to choose between having a life or creating a bunch of levels in a temped to get hire, I would choose having a life.

You asked for feedback in your original post...

I hate uselessly massive inside levels. They don't look good.

I hate how certain people criticize someones work, but they can't do any better. Keep in mind, these levels were to show what I could do. I made them for an application; I wasn't going to make some little tiny level.. btw nice account name
