Though JK2 is still going strong, even after 6 years, there aren’t as many maps and mods for JK2 coming out as there used to be, which is why I am pleased to see another new map from Sir_Ryan. Earlier this week I reviewed his Battle Area #72 map and having also had a look at his original Battle Facility map I am glad to see he has made a v2 of that map!
From what I could see whilst testing the map, there have only been a few changes since last time around, but the look of the map has changed quite a bit thanks to the removal of the ‘roof’. Now the map is open to the sky, and the lighting has been improved, so the map feels much more open. The secret underground room from the original version appears to have been removed however.
The layout is the same as the last version as far as I could see, but that’s fine, since the layout was good originally anyway. This would make an excellent map for medium sized FFA’s and TFFA’s because of the cover available in various places and the small bunkers. It would also be good as a saber-training map because of the platforms and walkways.
There are a few things I feel could be improved upon though. For instance, the walls of the map are a bit too flat really, they need some more detailing on them, pillars, pipes and other little things like that make a big difference. :)
I also think, it would be good if the map was made a little bigger, so to accommodate a large FFA or TFFA, with perhaps a few other features, like piles of crates for cover, and a sniping tower or something of the sort.
All in all though a very nice and decent sized map for all your FFA-ing needs! It also has bot support, and new music, which I think fits the theme of the map well.
So if you like the look of it, give it a download! :)
