So, this thread is pretty self-explanatory. Just reveal to the Z-i-V forums what you think the best stepchart & the worst stepchart you've EVER made. I would also like to know WHY you think so. It does not have to be a simfile on Z-i-V. It can be anything you've ever made.

I'll start:

BEST: ANAHONIKUY -Yuki no Hana PuzzLeMix- by moonlit. I just made it last night. It's a hard 9 on the old scale, a 14 on the X-scale. It's only a 14 because the ending, just like the pop'n music EX chart, is a pain in the ass--pad OR keyboard! (That & the opening sequence has stepjumps!)

WORST: Bunmei Kaika by TOMOSUKE. (Yes, he seriously fused Japanesesque & jazz.) I made a chart FILLED with 12th note single arrows followed by jumps on the full beat! (At 213 & 230 BPM, nonetheless!) Before I rated it a 10, I was stupid enough to rate it a 9 on the old scale. It's a 16 on the X-scale.

Excluding my bemanistyle simfiles (which were all bad, and are thankfully unavailable now):

Best - squartatrice (from ZiV War Games 2011): Reasonably difficult Heavy and Edit, and variation in the different charts as opposed to only being easier versions of the same patterns all the time. Also has some usage of mines, rolls, and lifts in the Edit chart. I'd say Desperado (WG2011) and ray of thanatos (SC2011) are the next best.

Worst - sista)nightTrans (from ZiV Summer Contest 2010): Not only does this have weird rhythms (which is expected for this song), but there are excessive spins at times and some other weird placements. This is what made me realize rushing charts can lead to horrible results, and I've thought of fixing this up, but haven't quite gotten to it yet. The worst besides this are probably Light of White Magic (WG2011) and JUMPER (SC2011), but the problems with those were mostly blandness, I believe.

After typing this post, I get the feeling this topic wont end well.
IIDX Rank: SP 九段 (7/8)/ DP 七段 (5/8); 1P Side player
SP 11* Clears: 132/150 (88.00%); 12* Clears: 22/96 (22.92%)
Has access to CS 9th-EMP+PB+US, uses extended KOCs.

I made a hideous chart for R10K many moons ago. Unsynced. With Record Mode. It was never uploaded anywhere.
I have no best chart. (Though once I start on some BMS songs I've been thinking of that should change.)

"PRO is for PRO's"
Best: Dream Layer from Z-i-V war Games

Worst: 120 to 9000, a speedcore song that goes 120-9000 BPM. Sync was bad, and steps were a bunch of nonsense that I rated 18 on the old scale.

Best: Not sure.

Worst: Also not sure.

I wish I had feedback to base it on. Confused
I can't believe it's not [noun]!

"ya did good, kiddo"
Hmm, I'm not sure but I have many bests
The Rotter Tarmination and Bamboo on Bamboo spring to mind, but I heard polygon was good too (as a non gimmick file)

and strangely enough, Ama-tan was not involved with either

Worst: PoPiPo (Ryu Remix) or Destin Histoire. The chart is a troll.

Best: I'm not a good stepchart artist. But I think my best is Unicorn Tail.

I don't have a best chart, have this instead:
hey; I used to make StepMania themes. Maybe you've heard of some of them. I don't work on StepMania stuff anymore, so don't ask me for help. (sorry.)

I also try to keep track of what's happening in the StepMania theming community at StepMania 5 Theme Update. Haven't updated it in a while, though.

Best - Either Floorfiller from War Games or Skyscraper from Summer Contest 2011. They're both very different charts, but I think I executed them very well.

Worst - Take on Me from Summer Contest 2011. Badly executed doublesteps, sixteenths that go to nothing, iffy sync, and a sloppy cut...ugh -_-

Best: dunno.

Worst: anything that I did before 2009, with maybe like two exceptions. If I want to narrow it down, I guess that my 2004 stuff is the worst of it.

"It's a Trap!"
Best - Probably my unreleased Zoo Zone chart that will be getting an upload here soon (once I find the time to get stuff done >_>)

Worst - ANYTHING from before 2009, but I keep a special circle of simfile hell for my Chaoz Fantasy simfile from 6th Grade oO Holding a freeze arrow while the other foot does an 8th stream at 162 BPM is fun, right??

Best - My (also) unreleased Apple Butter simfile. This was the point where I think I finally figured out doubles charts.

Worst - Tanken Note (Street style)... ugh. I didn't like the singles either, but the doubles is just super uninspired and rushed. This is was a chart that just shouldn't have been made. Sad

Best - Dunno, people were saying varied things. But Blinded said it was Chronos. I liked SigSig, Chronos, TRINITY ARROW, Midori no Kaze (lol, this thing is so hard to sync), Ryoushi no Umi no Lindworm, Programmed Sun... and maybe there's one or two others.

(this is like asking, out of all your children, which one do you like most... as said by U1-ASAMi when asked which of his song is his favorite)

Worst - Easily my EARLY Go Beyond!! chart. Oh, and that MAX 300. (period) mash-up I made. If you check those out you'll see.
Information about my simfiles can be seen on my profile page.

"Give me a steady beat."
Worst: Years and years of simfiles that were never finished and ultimately lost.

Best: Yet to come...

Among my new ones:
Best: CHAIN REACTION feat.NO+CHIN. Maybe it would be pretty fun on pad if anyone likes spins.
Worst: SA.YO.NA.RA. SUPER STAR, whose BPM changes are poorly executed, steps are either trying hard to be hard, and a pathetic excuse of a shock arrow chart. This is private for now until I upload a better version.
ELECTRIC MASSIVE DIVER is a close second.

*a slight bump*

I have a few songs/stepcharts that I feel particularly proud of.

Cyber-Cypher S-Heavy 8 (not uploaded yet)
Sword of Valiant S-Heavy 9 (stepchart is a lot like CSFIL (Speed Mix) [stream-wise] but with additional 16th runs.)
Most of my Shakugan no Shana themes
Railgun Shoot ~HardKore Gimmix~ (as the name suggests, it's very gimmicky; added all the speed changes/stops myself) (not uploaded yet)
My Mario Mix Groove Radar Specials
Scarlet Bomb (True Style); (base BPM is 140, so I decided to pull a "Flow (True Style)" and boost it up to 280 BPM). (not uploaded yet)
Atomic Destroyer (from Sonic Triple Trouble) S-Challenge 10 (not uploaded yet)
Triangle D-Standard 5 (It's not very hard but the jumps across both pads are crazy fun!)
Chasing Drive (from Sonic Adventure 2 Battle) S-Standard 7; (it's straight 4th steps at 230BPM with no breaks throughout the entire song.) (not uploaded yet)
Launch Hearts (from Mighty Switch Force) S-Standard 6 (very catchy beat and is mainly 4th streams with occasional 16th hops [yes, on a 6-footer]) (not uploaded yet)

Songs that I rushed & copied/pasted because I got bored of them.

EDIT: Sword of Valiant is now up.

WORST - Anything before 4 July 2011. I didn't really seem to get that step placement counted as much as rhythm, sync and song choice. A close second would be my THE SAFARI -Ryu☆ Remix- sim, which had shock arrows that could rival the stupidity of Horatio's. Thankfully, it vanished into the aether before it could see the light of day. Though, I might try to salvage it later on. Who knows. I liked the song.

BEST - I don't know. I really do like my Bits & Bytes chart, but I wouldn't really say it's my best because it's so experimental. In fact, a lot of the charts that I really like were kind of bizarre--Cinema [Skrillex Remix], Good Intentions (Centravibe Mix), HELP IS ON THE WAY, and HEAT-BIT-HIT-BEAT being some notable ones. I also like my ne me quitte pas and DISCO THE GROUND charts, but I haven't released those yet.
