What do you think about maps that looks like PP maps? I think they look boring, all the same, nothing creative. It's just stars (or w/e with single notes), 2 sliders (^); stars etc. And yet, those maps get the most favourites. I'd like your opinion. Does this influence your mapping style?

90% of the so-called "pp maps" out there are bad for pp because they have patterns that make them hard to FC but due to misconceptions or ignorance are seen as free pp just because they increase the star rating.
Starting with the basics, to get pp from the map you want to FC it, and anything hindering your full combo without contributing adequately to the star rating makes it worse of a pp map. "Contributing adequately": not all patterns worth the same star rating are equally easy to play. My main point is that popular "pp maps" have too many of these patterns that could be made much easier without affecting the star rating.
At the lowest level, very acute angled jumps are inherently the most pleasing type to play. The smaller the angle, the better. I'm not exactly sure why but it's probably because with acute angles, the next circle is close to the same location as the previous circle so you don't have to focus on aiming as much on that circle since your hand already has memory of the previous location or something.
An actual pp map like Fycho's Miraizu understands that his fullscreen jumps have to be the way they are (side to side, back and forth) so that they're at their easiest to play. Take a look at the 2nd kiai's jumps: http://puu.sh/kIsQV/1033b0a2f8.png I isolated 3 of the circles to explain: 1 and 3 are almost at the same spot, so I THINK that after hitting 2 you still have memory of 1's location fresh in your mind and don't have to worry about aiming 3 as much.
On the contrary, wide angles whose circles are all far from each other don't give players this little advantage, and they have to aim every note separately, which is fine if the map is within their skill level but doesn't allow them to stretch it a little more to FC something that gets pp.
Star jump patterns - kind of this. If it's a big jump or your concentration is lacking it's very easy to miss the last or second last note. I'm sure that if Miraizu jumps were arranged like Remote Control's it would be much harder to hit everything.
Repeating triangles - it annoys me when people say "give me more triangles for delicious pp xd". Triangle jump patterns that repeat on themselves like this http://puu.sh/kItqg/8586d9c38a.png aren't that hard to play by themselves but in my experience induce mind block EXTREMELY quickly for players that aren't way above the intended skill level to play them—it becomes very easy to plan ahead and miss a note before you hit it because you get too used to the pattern and already know the next note is coming.
Streams in jump maps - streams are harder for any player trying to get pp from a jump map and the amount of star rating they add isn't worth the increase in difficulty (same with the previous types of patterns I mentioned).
I have no opinion on the presence of these patterns in maps not designated for pp, but if someone (for fuck i don't know what reason) was trying to make a pp map, they'd better avoid these or it's shitty
