Hi! How's everyone feeling today?
Pleasantries over with, we've got a new take on Bespin!
This version has a snowy theme to it. I don't think I need to explain what exactly that implies, since you all know what Bespin is, and can probably imagine what it would look like covered in snow.
Certain parts have been redone - the old landing pad has been remade in typical UT2004 style. Some buildings have been altered to look more "fitting" with the theme. A radically different, non-Bespin themed skybox has been included. Certain monuments have been rebuilt looking somewhat newer.
The good points come first, as per usual. It's new and unique. Bespin Streets is likely to get some new life breathed into it thanks to this. There are no major theme clashes, although one or two textures are throughly out of place. It looks... 'real'. I actually get the genuine feeling of it being a snowy map. The author's gone on and used sparks of originality on certain parts, while still keeping the decent framerate the original provided. Overall, everything's well-thought out, and the author seems to have checked through the map quite thoroughly, as I can't find much which will detract from it.
There are some bad points. The music. Doesn't work at all, and it's the worst possible choice. You really should have gone to OCRemix, found a Sonic 3 Icecap Zone remix, and used that (making sure to give express and precise credits in the readme, of course - those guys all deserve it ;) ). I found several texture issues where a texture wasn't fitted properly - most notably the ramps. Surface Inspector is your friend. The lighting was plain, but at least there actually was lighting work done to this map. The other weaknesses of the original map are still present, too.
On the whole, it's a nice new variation of Bespin, so give it a try. You'll probably like it.
