Do not fill this in!'''DDA''' stands for '''D'''on't '''D'''o '''A'''nything. '''DDA''' [[maps]] are designed for passive entertainment, rather than playability. In these maps, the movement of the [[ninja]] is controlled not by the player, but by the [[tileset]] and [[objects]] like [[bounceblock]]s, [[launchpad]]s, [[door]]s, and [[thwump]]s. An often used but sometimes frowned upon technique is [[gold delay]]. [[File:42676.png|thumb|Example of a DDA]] The construction of a '''DDA''' usually takes a lot of time. In return for the time spent on making them, good '''DDAs''' have become quite popular, for example: [http://www.nmaps.net/7471 Tattletale] by [[nevermore]], [http://www.nmaps.net/8311 The Improbability Drive] by [[formica]] and [http://www.nmaps.net/221396 Truman Sleeps] by [[Wizard2]] have all been well-received on [[NUMA]]. Some '''DDAs''' such as [http://www.nmaps.net/6991 Thriller] by [[Sendy]] exploit a well-known [[glitch]] (called ''cheating death''), which makes the ninja invulnerable. '''DDAs''' using this glitch must be played in [[debug mode]] to work properly, not in [[Userlevels]]. Some variants of '''DDAs''' are called hold right '''DDAs''' or hold left '''DDAs''', and as the name suggests, instead of doing nothing, you have to just continously hold on to the right or left buttons to make it work. Some really special DDAs are "three-way", which means it can function as '''DDA''', hold-left '''DDA''', or hold-right '''DDA'''. Obviously, this takes a LOT of effort to create. Incredibly, [[Maximo]]'s [http://numa.notdot.net/map/12117 Michelle Five'fer] and [[Clifty]]'s [http://numa.notdot.net/map/106967 On route 666] work in five and six directions, respectively. The true challenge of a '''DDA''' is to make the ninja just miss the various traps and [[enemies]]; creating a hair-raising spectacle. ==KRADDA== '''KRADDA''' stands for ''"Keep-the-rocket-alive DDA"''. They are somewhat more difficult to make than normal '''DDAs''' since the designer must not only devise a way to keep the ninja alive, but also to keep the rocket alive throughout the course of the map. Creating one of these requires a lot of patience, because the rocket can move around in unexpected places, possibly ruining what you had in mind. ===Examples=== * [http://www.nmaps.net/180867 iKara] by [[ska]] * [http://numa.notdot.net/map/7471 Tattletale] by [[nevermore]] * [http://numa.notdot.net/map/7080 Rocket- ed] by [[formica]] ==CTRDDA== '''CTRDDA''' stands for ''"Chase The Rocket DDA"''. These maps are insanely difficult to create, as the ninja must be following the rocket, not the other way around. ===Examples=== *[[romaniac]]'s The Chaser's War series: [http://nmaps.net/80833 II], [http://nmaps.net/96185 III], and [http://nmaps.net/108761 IV]. '''Note: The first Chaser's War was created by Clifty and is not a CTRDDA.''' [http://www.nmaps.net/226214 Repercussion] by [[Mohit_Ghune]] (Also a "hold-right" DDA, so it technically is a HRCTRDDA.) ==Corpse DDA== A '''Corpse DDA''', also known as a ''Death DDA'' or a ''DDABYD'' ''(Because You're Dead)'', is a '''DDA''' where the ninja dies at the very beginning, and goes through the whole map as a lifeless corpse. A variety of objects are used to propel the ninja throughout the map. However, these maps are fairly uncommon on [[NUMA]], due to the lack of popularity. ===Example=== *[http://numa.notdot.net/map/50432 Suicide booth 3001] by [[deathcloud33]] ==FLCDDA== A sub-domain of a corpse dda, Flying Limb Corpse '''DDA'''s are very rare as only 5 have been confirmed to have been made. Your ninja dies in the beginning and one of his limbs will be propelled through the map, sometimes ending at the exit. ===Examples:=== * [http://www.nmaps.net/191389 Exploding Universe] by [[atomizer]] * [http://www.nmaps.net/191420 Shish Kabomb] by [[script]] [[Category:Map type]] Summary: Please note that all contributions to the N are considered to be released under the CC-BY-SA Cancel Editing help (opens in new window) Retrieved from "https://n.fandom.com/wiki/DDA"
