Now given light of this, a claim written in the read-me, you'll understand why I feel the need to be as detailed as possible in my review:
This map is said to be one of the best maps ever seen on Jedi academy.
I wonder who said that. This map isn't bad, but I certainly wouldn't classify it under the heading of "one of the best." The cave looks like it was scooped out with an ice cream scooper - the ceilings are very smooth, just rounded a bit. The ground is very angular, not particularly looking the way that rock would form in a cavern. There are no light sources that I can see in the main area to produce the light that is present. The texturing is repetitive, and in areas changes with no transition. In short this map has a lot of errors that most experienced mappers would not make, and as such I am disappointed that they claimed it was one of the best Jedi Academy maps ever created. Seems kind of insulting to those authors who really do put out excellent work, and are humble about it.
No bot support has been included, which is kind of a bummer, and no new models or extra goodies. However if you look around you'll find interesting messages like "don't lame" on the walls. Personally I find it to not deliver on what the read-me promised, and when I get false information I'm especially more unlikely to download. False promises are disappointing.
