[2pac Release] Sharpnel Instrumentality Project + Nightflower Complex

2pac found alive 2021

This thread contains two packs that I’ve released over the few weeks: Sharpnel Instrumentality Project and Nightflower Complex. Sharpnel Instrumentality Project is an almost exclusively stamina JS pack, while Nightflower Complex is a bunch of charts I’ve made during the first half of 2021. I hope that there’s something for you to enjoy in either pack.

Sharpnel Instrumentality Project is a 16-chart project that primarily consists of jumpstream stamina charts – MSD difficulty range of 19 to 24. It was initially an 11-chart project, but after some discussion with a couple of people who have organised successful packs of a similar nature, I believe that a 16-chart project would have more staying power and general appeal as a pack.

I initially started this project because I felt that osu!mania and Etterna heavily lacked jumpstream (stamina) charts that had particularly strong structures (from a charting standpoint), and I felt that my jumpstream patterning ability was very lacking relatively, so I wanted to make a pack that would accomplish two things: a project that would hone my charting ability in areas that I’ve ignored for a long time, and a set of charts for a skillset that is very high in demand for a long time but has treated as a joke from a charting structure because of how the charts have been made over the past few years.

Nightflower Complex is a pack of 15 charts that I’ve made from February 2021 to June 2021 (with the exception of Shuu no Hazama/Rainshower, which was made in November 2020), MSD difficulty range of 18 to 25 (though mostly in the 19-23 range). You can expect a mixture of drum and bass, breakcore, metal, and some odd tracks in-between. There is a general theme of the music in this being mostly dark and grungy, but there are some pretty clear exceptions to the rule (e.g. Nanamori).

Like my other packs, most of the charts in this pack are fairly straightforward in rhythmic structure. However, a good portion of them would be categorised more as jumpstream rather than technical, since the bulk of those charts’ difficulties come from jumpstream in some form or another. Some of the charts in the pack are also straight jumpstream. There are, however, still some very technical charts in the pack, like Aqua Regia, Brainfog, or Ideal Ratio. There are no explicitly “dumpy” charts in the pack, so there is no use of the pink CDTitle here.
