Sith-J-Cull is probably the most prolific mapper for JA now and he makes great maps. He's done more for Chrono's little JKR (Jedi Knight Racing) "mod" than anyone else. His latest addition for the created game type is Boonta Eve - Tatooine Pod Race.
The map is huge. And it's not just one big circle that you race around for a few minutes and get bored. There are a few different paths you can take and there are a few obstacles you have to watch out for. I didn't expect to find a Wampa on the track and his growl as I passed by scared the crap outta me. There are also some of those little training droid ball things that shoot at you, placed all around the map - and not surprisingly, there are Tusken Raiders that will try to take you out. Sure, the FPS is a little low, but it's not so bad that you won't be able to race. The map looks great - there were some areas with z-fighting, but the areas aren't important and I only saw them when I spectated and flew around, looking at the tops of buildings and stuff.
No bot support, but you don't really need it for a JKR map. The sounds are perfect, taken straight from the movie, I believe. I think the track is fairly accurate, but I haven't seen the movie in a while, so I can't say for sure. Most importantly, I had fun racing in this map. And I can't wait to see more of these Speedway maps from you James. Before long, we may see some strictly JKR servers hosting only your maps! :) Great work!

<28/01/04> ================================================================ Map Name : <boonta_eve_classic_tatooine_pod_race> Author : <Sith-J-Cull> Email Address : <[email protected]> Website URL : <http://sithjcull.mysite.freeserve.com> Map description : <Tatooine Pod Race FFA map (JKR)> SHOOT THE DOORS TO OPEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 I AM GLAD THAT i FINALY HAVE THE FIRST VERSION OF THIS MAP COMPLETE - I WILL START BY SAYING THAT THERE ARE SEVERAL THINGS THAT NEED TO BE SORTED OUT, I WOULD HAVE LIKED A HIGHER FPS ON THE START LINE SECTION, WHICH IS THE PART WHERE THE FPS DROPS TO ITS LOWEST - DUE TO THE SIZE AND SCAPE OF THAT PARTICULAR PART, HOWEVER MOST OF THE COURSE DELIVERS A PLAYABLE FPS RATE SO THATS NOT TOO BAD. AS MANY OF YOU WILL KNOW - THIS IS A MAP THAT HAS BEEN DONE MOSTLY FOR JEDIMOVES.COM - AND INFACT I HAVE SPOKEN TO JAVIER THERE IN DEPTH ABOUT THE MAP - JEDIOMOVES HAVE SUPLIED MY WITH SCREENSHOTS AND SOME PLANS WHICH I HAVE ROUGHLY BASED THE MAP ON SO THANKS TO THEM. THIS IS REALLY A TESTER VERSION FOR A FINAL RELEASE WHICH WILL INCLUDE POD RACER MODELS BY DUNCAN, SO I LOOK FORWARD TO THAT. ANYWAY I HOPE YOU ENJOY THIS, AND HERE ARE SOME STUPID FACT ABOUT THE MAP: ** TO WALK AROUND THE ENTIRE COURSE WITHOUT USING FORCE SPEED TAKES AROUND TEN MINS (THAT JUST SHOWS HOW LARGE THIS IS) ** IT TAKE ABOUT 2 MINS TO GO AROUND THE COURSE ON THE SPEEDERS (USING BOOST NOW AND THEN) ** THE SPEEDERS THAT ARE INCLUDED ARE SPEEDERS THAT I HAVE MODIFIED, I HAVE INCREASED THE SPEED, BOOST, AND ARMOR SO THAT AT LEAST IT IS POSSIBLE TO GET AROUND THE COURSE A COUPLE OF TIMES WITHOUT EXPLODING.
