This single-player map is designed for those of you who want to have a little fun and challenge yourself at the same time, but don't want to have to hear every other player accuse you of laming, or some other such blather. Single-player. Yes, I did say that, but don't get ahead of yourself. This single-player map is not story-driven -- it's just a fun map with some NPCs for you to blast, saber, disintegrate, etc.
Now I have to tell you why you should care about some map with a bunch of NPCs. If the name of the map hadn't clued you in, this is no ordinary shoot 'em up map. The twist? No gravity! The effect is somewhere between swimming and floating, and the dozens of stormtroopers add for an interesting challenge since hair trigger reflexes really aren't going to help you here.
The idea of the map is that you're thrown into a training center, admittedly inspired by part of the book Ender's Game (recommended read, by the way). There are several ways you can go about ridding the galaxy of these stormtroopers, including blasting them with emplaced guns, sniping them from afar, or going on a suicide run and diving right in. Er, suicide run for me. Maybe you're more crafty and will survive. :p
Definitely a cool concept, and it should give players a bit of something new and I'm sure will make for an interesting way to practice survival skills. Just keep in mind that to play this, you'll have to type map zero_g into the console. Enjoy, and blast some stormies for me!
Title: Zero-G Combat Training Author: Krattle E-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org Level Information Brushes: 126 Entities: 454 Music: Yes - Gustav Holst's "Mars: The Bringer of War," from "The Planets;" performed by the Berliner Philharmoniker under the direction of Herbert von Karajan New Textures: No New Models: No Description This is a zero-g combat training facility based on a similar concept from the novel "Ender's Game." The objective is simply to kill all of the Stormtroopers, but have fun doing it. Various ways of completing the objective make the map more fun. You can use emplaced guns, charge right into the fusillade of blaster fire, sit back and snipe from the pillbox-like structures at the edges of the map, or use a combination of all three tactics. Six Rebel soldiers assist you in the fight against the Empire. There is no formal end to the map - just have fun killing all the Stormtroopers. My brother and I originally made this map for Jedi Outcast about 5 years ago. I tried porting it to JA, but unfortunately there were irreperable bugs so I decided to leave it as a map for JO. I've tried to optimize it as much as possible but because there are so many Stormtroopers some lag is inevitable. However, it WILL clear up after you kill a few of them so don't worry. Turning off shadows will speed it up dramatically.
