It isn't often that we get SP levels submitted to JK2Files.com. So it's a nice little break from reviewing skins. :) This SP map was made for JK2 and I had a great time playing it. :D
You have the option of playing the level with a lightsaber or guns. I chose the former. It isn't necessary to read the background story to find out who your character is or where you are - it's obvious you're a prisoner from the beginning. Also, if you're not too dense, you can figure out that the mission here is to escape (and some other stuff). The enemies were fairly easy to kill and the map is laid out well enough to get through. Though I have to say that this map is incredibly dark in some areas. So ... like ... watch your step.
I had fun playing this, though I didn't finish it completely. There are some new textures here and there, some are questionable however. What I mean by that is ... why the hell was there "wallpaper" of Britney and Marilyn? That just baffles me. Oh well. The background music choice was perfect - added to the ambiance, it didn't take center stage. Bottom line: This is a fun little distraction. :)
New Textures: Yes New Music: Yes

Later, you awake to a vile odor and a dusty prison room. You realize you are in the dungeon of a different ancient temple on Yavin IV. Outside your cell, you see a Stormtrooper at one end of the hall and your weapon and light goggles at the other end on a shelf. They don't know that you're awake yet, so no door has been put on the prison room's doorway. You want to escape instead of waiting to see what the Remnant does to you. Of course, if the legends of this temple are true, part of your path out is through the catacombs-the tribe that created this temple guarded their dead with several traps and illusions. Good luck. TIPS-Avoid reading if possible! >The Remnant has installed lighting in several areas. The power generators are exposed to your gunfire, and if one is destroyed, all of the lights and guns it powers will go out. >In the big room with the strange lighting on one side, you must find and destroy six enemies in a row to...well, you'll find out. >Remember to save the game before exploring the catacombs. You never know where you might be killed by the angry dead... :) >There are three secret areas. In one of them, you can acquire most force powers. >Turn out your lights so you can see your computer screen better; this level is dark in some places. Crank up your volume; this level has cool music! >For the best effect in the catacombs, use 1st person view and don't use your light goggles! HELP: Q: Nothing appears in my Mod list. What's wrong? A: You must download the 1.04 patch that Raven released for the game. Q: What does Com_sprintf Overflow in 129 of 128 mean? A: Don't worry about it. The level should still play normally. Q: Which mode should I choose first? A: I recommend Soldier Mode. The level plays best in first person with guns. Not to say it isn't fun with a lightsaber. Q: Why is there all this electrical stuff (doors, lights) in an ancient temple? A: The Remnant has installed it all, and it all runs on power generators. Not all the lights are electric, though... Q: I give. Why is the Remnant here? A: You'll find out in my next level... Q: You loser! Why don't you use GTK Radiant like everyone else? A: You loser! Why do you give a darn? (I will be using G for future levels, though.) Q: Is this your first map? A: Yes. This is my first map that was not practice. Q: Can I email you with comments/questions/concerns/complaints? A: Sure. Please email me comments about this level using my address at the top. I will make more levels based on what I receive. [end of document]
