Following on from his recent release; eXt Battle Twitch here brings us his latest map; eXt JumpBattle.
Following the theme of his previous map, this map is designed to be used as a medium sized FFA or TFFA map. Now, let’s get onto the maps features.
As the name suggests, this map involves…jumping! There are several jump pads around the map, which when walked onto, catapult you through the air onto a platform higher up. Disrupter Rifles have been well placed here, since these platforms make good sniping positions. There is also another larger platform containing a couple of X-wings. Though unfortunately you can’t fly them. This is reached by jumping up onto smaller platforms, which I should imagine would be an interesting place to have a duel.
Speaking of duels, there is a landing pad type area at one end of the map, which has ample space for a good saber duel.
I must say, in the relatively short time since Twitch sent us his last map, he has improved quite a bit! The map has more noticeable architecture (I especially liked the central area, for some reason it reminded me of a tennis court! ;)) and there is more detail there too. The lighting, like last time, has also been done well. The layout is very good for a FFA or TFFA, it’s a good-sized map with several features, like the landing pad type area and the various platforms and sniping positions.
This map also has some new music, which I personally think was a good choice for this map, since it goes well with the theme I think.
I couldn’t find any bugs when I tested this map, so well done there mate! :) A bug free map is always more enjoyable to play on. As for points to be improved upon, what I would suggest is to keep working on the architecture and detailing. Those two things are one of the hardest things to master when mapping I think.
All in all a good FFA / TFFA map for JK2 here. Personally it reminds me of the maps I used to see in JK2’s heyday back soon after it had been released. I dunno what it is, but the map just has that kind of ‘fun feeling’ to it, similar to the ‘Hail the Boognish’ map (which so happens to be one of my all time favourite maps for JK2!) so good work there Twitch!
I look forward to seeing more maps from Twitch in the future.
As for now, if you guys like the look of this map, then give it a download!
