Maddog's review of the first version of this map:
Obi1007 brings us his map called Coruscant Secrets. While small in size there is very ample space to fight and duel, you just have to navigate your way through all the halls. The author came up with this name for the map because he added a lot of secrets.
Personally I think this map is a little too bright and is missing that little something extra making this an average map. If this is the author’s first map this is a decent attempt, so keep on mapping. There are a few flickering textures on the walls and floors causing bit of a distraction.
Unfortunately, I haven't any more positive to say than Maddog did. :/ If this is a first attempt at mapmaking, then I'd say it was maybe a bit too ambitious of a project. The author tried to fit too many different elements into one map. There's a waterfall, somewhat of a maze of doors that leads to a pad to duel on, a bar and a hangar with a few vehicles of sort and a few rooms that are just empty and simply exist. Some of the secrets didn't make any sense to me. Some were just doors that opened to reveal, nothing.
There's a ton of z-fighting all over the map, especially around doorways. There are a few different themes, mixed together here, but haphazardly and so it doesn't flow. Neither does gameplay, really. I don't recall seeing any weapons, except for Seeker Drones. I hate to say it, but I don't look forward to an update of this map. In my opinion, you should go back to the drawing board and pick one theme, stick with it and maybe make it smaller. Concentrate on the details and getting everything right in one room before moving onto the next. :)
