Sir_Ryan is back! And he brings us his new map; Battle Area #101.
I think this is the third JK2 map I have reviewed in the last few days, and I am very pleased to see some more mapping activity in JK2. Keep it up guys! :D
Now, let’s have a good look at this map. First off, as soon as you start it up you can tell this was designed as a pure FFA map and like other maps recently this brings me right back to the good old days of JK2. The map is in a Bespin style and features numerous areas of interest that would make for an exciting FFA. Firstly, at either end of the map is a bunker like area to the side of which is the entrance to an underground passage which takes you through to the other side. The passage is somewhat maze like and quite cramped which would make it a great area for close quarters battles.
In the middle of the map is a tall platform with access ramps at either side, which would make an excellent snipers nest, as would the walkways that round all around the side of the map set into the walls. There are also a few stacks of crates spread around to provide cover. Overall this is a very open map, and I think it would be great for either a full guns FFA or a saber only FFA.
There are some areas I think could be improved upon though. Mainly I really think that the map is a bit too simple, and could do with some more architectural detail and such. Perhaps some more areas for cover, a more diverse range of textures and some other detailing would be good. Also, since the columns holding up the walkway in the middle are made out of patch cylinders, the textures are very squashed up. To change the texture stretch settings on patches you need to press shift and s to bring up the patch texture window.
Overall I like this map, and I would like to see a v2 with some extra detail and improvements, because I think this map is great for FFA’s and Team FFA’s of any kind.
If you guys like the look of it, then give it a download, and don’t forget to leave some helpful feedback in the comments so the author knows where he can improve the map for next time! :)
