Jan-Feb 2007 Contest Finalist - Intermediate Skill Level

Description: Have a nice, quiet duel along the beach, or take it to the waves for a deadly surf-off! It's just like that one Batman episode!

Pros:

  • innovative features, such as working waves, and a moving boat
  • unique subject
  • fitting music
  • appropriate scenery
  • plenty of room
  • theme flows well

Cons

  • water behaves more like ice than water
  • less suited for duels than other gametypes
  • construction technique simple, less aesthetic
  • somewhat empty

Note: This map has been given a generalized review to avoid any biasing of the voters.

I GUESS YOU COULD PLAY IT IN JK3 IF YOU WANTED TO, BUT IT'S ALL DARK AND YOU CAN'T SEE AS FAR.
SO REALLY, PLAY IT IN JK2.  BESIDES, JK2 IS 1000000000000000 TIMES BETTER THAN JK3 AND YOU KNOW IT!

Credits and other stuff:

I pretty much made this map with one thing in mind:  dueling on slick surfaces is awesome.  
Every map I've seen has one little slick place to duel on, but it's always too small so you fall off!  
This one is huge lol!

I don't really like duel maps

If you get stuck by doing a dfa, use the blue lunge move to get out.  
That works in JK2 1.02, but I dunno about other versions, so maybe it's not a good idea to dfa lol.

There are sniper rifles in the map for awesome gun duels if you want.

Sorry about the fps being kinda low.  I tried everything, but this is the highest I could get.
If you have a good computer it shouldn't be too bad.

The Jan skin is by Plasmacoolant, and you can get it at http://jediknight2.filefront.com/file/Jan_Roses;18495

I got some textures from pictures I found on Google Image Search.  Credits to whoever those pictures belong to.

Thanks to the Surfaris for the awesome song "Wipe Out"

Thanks to the Beach Boys for being so cool, and for the title and loading message

Thanks to everyone who plays the map :)

Good luck to everyone in the contest

I know the map is kinda big for a duel map, but I hope it will work.
