This map is supposed to represent Coruscant, and deliver a fun CTF match. The readme said so, and I think I'd try the map out just because of that text. I wish the map was as good as the introduction. The city is not like the Coruscant we all know, it is not flashy, with traffic and all. It is also quite blocky, blockier than it should be. Blockier than Coruscant is. And the skybox is just bad. You should add some buildings on it, and maybe make the near buildings a little more busy. The texturing is a little bit bland, too.
The lighting actually wasn't really that bad - most of the lights had their sources, and those that did not were not that easy to spot (for an untrained eye). It also separates the two teams' bases, Red and Blue. Both are identical and are mirrored, just like a normal CTF map.
There is some sort of a song included, that plays in the map. I don't know it, not sure about the rest, and I don't think that it fit in. It, once again, took the Coruscant feel away - it doesn't sound like Star Wars at all.
And the conclusion? The map sure has its potential, but it needs better visual appearance. I can't really try the map out in a CTF match (with 4+ people), but I could think of many more CTF-friendly elements, that would help the map greatly.
New Textures: Yes New Models: No New Music: Yes Bot Support: Yes Game Types: CTF, TFFA
port: Yes (My poor routes...) Date Of Release: Dec 2005 Description: A level set on Coruscant featuring bridges and wide ledges the player must navigate to capture or return their flags. This map is ment to both satisfy competitive play as well as provide sufficiant space for slower saber oriented play. Its large size makes it ideal for battles with teams of 4 or more players. This takes place while the battle rages for Coruscant, during the evenings and their time off, rebels and imperials would fight mock battles for bragging rights. These deadly capture the flag battles gained fame and some of the most well known were fought right here, in the Coruscant Bridge section... =============================================== Installation Information =============================================== Unzip the ctf_coruscant_bridges.pk3 to your gamedata\base directory.
