Forgive me for going into detail once again... just for people who're interested. :)

Have you noticed that the carbon chamber's FLOOR pattern is not the same as the one the TESB? I think the leel designers got a little too clever and shifted the texturing. Look at the staircases. At the bottom of the staircase in JK2, there is a roundish orange pattern. Look at the staircases in TESB. At the bottom, the roundish pattern is NOT directly at the bottom, but is somewhat at the side of the staircases.

They might be different carbon chambers, though, but it still doesn't explain why. I'm sure the design should be the same regardless of which carbon chamber it is.

Second... is it carbonite chamer or carbon chamber? :)

Like I've said, I not sure that being a different chamber will affect the design. It is a sort of design inconsistency. That's not good designing.

Oh, there is another minor difference. This time, it concerns the scaling. The hall where Luke meditates in the Jedi Academy, I assume, is the same hall where the main characters were given medals in Ep4. However, it seem to be quite a lot smaller. And the ceiling is not as tall in JK2 as in EP4. Here's a picture of the room in Ep4. Compare it to the JK2 one (picture not provided...) boyse24.jpgswcf5.jpg Notice in Picture 1 that the columns in the far end is much taller than the one you would see in JK2? And, in Picture 2 (the bottom half of that picture.), the gaps in between each column is big enough for, possibly, two moderately sized people to go through at once. But in JK2, Kyle is wider than the gaps slightly. And the triangular gaps in the side walls dwarfed the people standing there by a huge degree. The JK2 one is not that bit.

Now... I'm sure the X-Wing scaling is different as well in JK2 and in the Classic Trilogy. Classic Trilogy's bigger. A human can easily walk under the wings in the Classic Trilogy. But it seems you can't do that in JK2. Kyle's head, I think, is above the wings. Not sure about this yet, though.

hehe, the scaling is not the best thing in jk2. look at the shadowtrooper's suits before you meet the first one. it's about 3 meters tall! also the stormtroops are much bigger than kyle.

on the carbon chamber: it might not be the same one, but i dont c y they would just change it. maybe they got it wrong and they just gave up and said "oh good enough".

y couldnt they make the hall the same size. that would be so kool. take u a min to cross it.

i like ur threads. nice and meticulous. very detailed.

I agree. Oh, the stormtroopers were deliberately set to be bigger than Kyle. They should be. Otherwise, they would be smaller than Kyle without their armour. As for the shadowtrooper's suits... I don't remember seeing it. Do you have a screenshot of it? I only remember the real shadowtroopers.

Possibly. Or maybe they might be trying to be clever and do a little adjustments. They might be thinking "Hey, this circle should be under the stairs. That must be it. Made a mistake the production crew of Star Wars did." :D

Or maybe it is just saving memory. Making such a big room would tax the resources of the computer. But the size difference between the movie version and the game's is so large! Maybe, like the carbon chamber, this could be a different one? But even if they were different, how can the size of the two halls be so drastically different?

like ur threads. nice and meticulous. very detailed.

Thanks. But, alas, they are usually short-lived. :(

They are short lived because you go and point out the tinyest little things and everyone gets in a fight about it.;) Not your fault really, well, not to much..............

30cm! That's too much! Also, I've just went back to the cairn level and saw those suits. Yeah, they're much bigger than Kyle. I don't understand how Raven can make such size discrepancies. :uhm:

I don't get you. Yes, I point out the tiniest things, but people getting into a fight with that? Err... no. Unless, of course, you're mentioning the unforunately incident of the Eye color thread. ;)
