FFA Tal Erulanei
I am depressed; the best map I have ever seen is for JK2 I think I'm gonna cry. I mean JA?? Sigh, at least he says that he'll be releasing a JKA version so ¡ll be able to hero worship him in a whole other review. Yay! anyways back to what I was saying. This is perhaps the best map I have ever seen. Quite seriously. This map is by Wedge2211, one of the most famous Jedi Knight mappers in my opinion, rivaled only by perhaps dad*mad in the detail and uniqueness he puts into maps. Creator of City of The Ancient, FFA Mars, and the Orbital Transfer station, Wedge has a history of greatness. This map is one of two new map released by him, and it lives up to his greatness. By the way, in case you havent figured this out yet, Wedge is my favorite mapper of all time and Im his #1 fan so reviewing this is a great honor for me :D Well anyways, now that Ive explained his entire life story¡Konto the map. I think the first thing to say about this map is amazing. I think the thing I would say after that however, would be: curves. I mean more curves then youve EVER seen, in any map. This map is entirely curves. I do not see ANY part of that map that is not curved except maybe the skybox. This map has some of the most beautiful architecture I¡¦ve seen in a while. It consists of 3 structures floating in air over a beautiful water planet skybox, each connected by tunnels with Glass roof parts and not boxy tunnels, perfectly curved tunnels flowing from structure to structure.(take a look at the pictures) Going inside each building (if I may call them that, they¡¦re more floating blobs) there are huge passageways of tunnels connecting into multiple rooms with some amazing shaders and architecture (again take a look at the pictures). In the background there is this mysterious music. This map really completes a whole world. It has every part to make me actually picture myself in the map, wondering around. I think that is one of Wedges best skills, creating these strong maps that seem so amazing and mysterious. This map makes me cry with it beauty and cower with the feeling awe it give me in the pit of my stomach. I would pay thousands upon thousands of dollars to be able to create the art that wedge does.
This map is a must download. Even if there is a version coming out for JKA, dont wait. Get out your copy of JK2 And just look around. You wont want to stop looking. Amazing job Wedge, you once again have made me bitterly jelous of you :D ~DeathBringer
