Whew. I know that this map is late(don't blame me, I just came back =_= ,) but I I think was actually late in the first place, since our database said it was submitted the day after Alvis Ti-- Saturnali-- Christmas.
So, according to our author, this is a representation of a certain town in....somewhere in the world. Naturally, a few creative liberties were exercised, as very few towns in the world have a catapulting ski-jump leaping through a hoop, save for perhaps the village near my tower, but that's more of a catapult into a Gorgon's rectum. So, as would be expected, there's a lot of houses, buildings, plenty of snow, and of course, some fun gadgets to mess around with.
Seeing as the author gave it some reasonable effort and did what he could within his time restrictions, I'll let the rather geometric architecture slide...except for one area, namely the back of this one house marked by the missing back wall! C'mon now, I know there's no reason for us to be back there, but you could have at least put a brush there and covered up your proverbial handiwork. Oy, even as I write this review, I'm finding more lazy mistakes, but I'm just going to let them slide in the spirit of the holidays...for now =_=. Moving on to the missing textures, even though he mentioned them, they probably should have been addressed at the very least. That tree's missing texture is extremely detrimental to the seasonal immersion. =_o along with the train.
I think the absolute best thing about the map was definitely the choice of music, but I guess that's just my personal opinion since it's one of my favorite Alvis Time songs. Oh, wait, I meant Christmas. Yeah, whatever ⌐_⌐
So honestly, looking from his description, I'm gonna have to say he did pretty decently. Granted, nothing seemed to work out as he planned, but it's good to see that he tried his best. Maybe next Christmas you'll have more time to make a better version, huh?
So yeah, it's already 2009, but hell, I COMMAND YOU TO AT LEAST SEE THE FRUITS OF HIS WORK =_=..plox.

*********************************** Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy *********************************** TITLE**: Christmas In Helix AUTHOR**: Double W Jedi E-MAIL**: [email protected] COMMENTS: To anyone who downloads this map, I hop you can find it in your hearts to forgive me. There was going to be alot of great things about this map. But the sad thing is, I was rushed. I started back at the end of November, but was busy with college. When school ended, I had a lot of responsibilities to do for christmas for my family. The thing that I am dissapointed about is the lightning. I had several light enities with different colors for the christmas lights, but radiant would not compile them. I tried using different compiling methods each time, but no lighting would apear. I also had trouble with scripting, everything just goes haywire when I try to use them. I am heartly sorry about this, it's just I didn't have enough time to get it done before christmas, other wise it would be much better. Description: For those of you who have never heard of Helix, it is the town that my sister and my little brother go to school at. My sister plays for the volleyball and basketball team there as well. I made quite of few friends from there as well, and we were all much happy to there instead of the town we moved out of. Since we enjoyed our times there, I wanted to make a FFA map of the town, and then show it to everybody in a video formate as a christmas present to everybody. But since I havn't released any maps for a while, I thought I might share this with everybody, since its chrismtas. Anyways, this is a large scale map of the town Helix. I tried to make it as acurate as possible. I included the high school, gym, tennis court, with a bunch of tauntauns inside the court, and I also included the whole town of Helix . And in the cafeteria there is a stage up front for the drama class plays. You'll see that I included a fire place for Santa Clause to climb down. So if you go up to the fire place, you will teleport up to the roof top. There you will see santa's sleigh and his riendeer. I havn't had much experiace with modeling, and there was nobody around to help with that, so I build the reindeers from scratch. There is also the gym, inside the gym I included a line for Santa,(I couldn't find a Santa Clause Model anywhere, otherwise I would have put him on the chair). Theres a train that just stays there, I wanted to write a script for it to circle the christmas tree, but ran out of time. Outside is the best part. I made a drop zone ride, you know one of those rides that takes up a long ways, then drops down really fast. Also I included a ferris wheel, and a ice scating ring for anybody who wants to scate. Also there is a big ski ride that you can ride through around the school grounds. Lastly for anybody that like skiing, I mad a big ski slide down town where you would have to walk all the way up the stairs, then slide down the slide an fly through a bid ring in the middle and then land down on the next slide. CREDITS: CLU - Nathan: I used some of his textures from his Matrix reloaded map. You'll find his readme with the zip drive. GrimReaper: Thankyou for those great tree models. Anne Murray: Music All the new features in this map include: New Textures New Music New Shaders New Models New Terrain and Bot Routing. Game Types: FFA, TFFA, Duel, Power Duel. Bugs: The ski ride get stuck after you take off, so you have to move or jump forward to get it moving, same with the ferris wheel. There may be a few misbrush alignments. If I had more time, I would of fixed that. There are a few missing textures. The one on the drop zone, I actually did on purpose, because I thought it might actually look like the chairs are moving up a belt. Thats all for the map. Merry Christmas to everybody.
