Well here we have an interesting map. The author has taken the Nar Shaddaa streets map, added onto it, and then recreated scenes from single player. There are many things to cover in this map, so I'll only cover a few.
I'll go over some of the single player areas first. At first I thought the author might have decompiled the the single player Nar Shaddaa maps and just reworked them. But upon further inspection, I found that they were in fact quite different. Anyways, there are a bunch of single player areas. These include Reelo's office, the bar, and other places. In the bar you can close it up just like it was in the single player campaign, although you fall down a hole and get teleported to Reelo's office. I was dissapointed when I saw that the Mine Monster pit was replaced with a pool table. I loved those little monsters. Oh. One little cool thing about this is that there was a grill in the bar. Well now it's cooking some Ysalamri. And a random leg. I wonder who it belongs to? Anyways, onto Reelo's office, sorry for that tangent. Please note that there are a few hidden buttons for some fun. One of them opens up the floor of the arena ( I don't know what it's called) and drops whoever's on it into a pit. Whoever pushed the button can then push another button and descend to a cage area where the other people are now trapped. And guess what? You can choose to either to release them or kill them. Great, huh? As I said, there are other single player areas, but I'm not going to go over all of them.
Okay, and now to go over some of the add-ons. One of the obvious ones is the fact that there are now airspeeders flying around. Well, they aren't really flying, because they only go in two directions. And the scripting doesn't look great, as the speeders go forward, stop, and go backward. Why can't they just turn? Meh. One plus about the speeders is that you can ride in them. Another one of this add-ons is a set of floating pads on two parts of the map. All they really do is move up and down, but they make it easy to move from level to level. And one of my favorite areas was a new duel area. Whoopie, a duel area. You get to this by jumping into some freaky airflow thing, and it's just cool.
As I said in the forest house map, the colored bsp name is annoying. Sure, it might get someone's attention on the server list, but it's still annoying. Another thing is that the music on this map didn't work. At least, it didn't work for me. And judging from what the song sounds like, I'm glad it doesn't work. Ick. Anyways, another thing that would have made this a better map is if there were no clan tags or references in it.

I would like to add more to it but have already hit the shader limit for the map. There are a couple of inherent bugs in the map but I don't mind so much. There is also a version for jedi academy at pcgamemods but I hope to get that submitted at jk2files as well some time soon. ----------------->>> ***in order to have the map start when typing the map name ----------------->>> you must enter all these characters: ^4=^7LM^4=^7Streets ----------------->>> The bsp name was a suggestion by, Some guy named dave ----------------->>> To my knowledge it is the 3rd map for jk2 or JK3 ----------------->>> that will have colors displayed in the server list.
