Well, here's a somewhat new version of that massive map that took near 2 hours for Kouen to review =_=
Right, so most of the map seems virtually the same. This made it damn hard to find anything that was changed and/or new, so here's basically what I could find:
- New Ambient Sounds: There were some screams and a new bridge creaking noise. Trouble is, I do mean "noise." It's looped repetitively to a point, and the screams basically come out of nowhere in a silent map. They really didn't add much atmosphere
- New Arena down at the bottom of the chasmed conference room: A couple new teleporters will take you to a simple chain-held arena where an abyss once was.
- New Skybox in Skull Castle Area: Sort of looks like Halo now, although in some ways it doesn't. (at least to me, seeing I've only played Halo 1)
- Secret to ruining the game: Whilst I'm not sure if this was in the last version or not, I noted a very very very potent secret, which I normally wouldn't reveal, but seeing as it could mean the difference between staying and leaving the server, I'll speak'th it: Basically there's this one button in the map called the "Annihilation of the Universe" button. In essence, when pressed, EVERYONE(including the presser,) dies. What makes it worse is that everyone dies PERMANENTLY, in a matter of speaking. Every time you respawn, you automatically "fall to your death." It sucks horribly if you're in a crowded server and someone finds the button whilst you're having fun.
- The rancor below the throne room is audible now.
- There seems to be a new hatch on the giant tank: albeit I'm not sure how it can be opened from the outside.
- The castle and monolith seem to be linked now, although whether that was in the other version remains to be seen.
Overall, the changes here seem to be very minor to warrant a full 2.0, but ah well. My mind is too weary and battered to think of anything cunning or witty, so commence bandwidth destroying as you will -_-;

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS : place the " DMonolith2.PK3 " file in your JKA (jedi academy) game folder, in the directory GAMEDATA/BASE. should be in the same folder as "assets1.pk3" then start the game, create a new match, and under "duel, ffa or power duel" you should find the map. TECHNICAL : total brushes: 5606, total entities: 1727, lights: 578, misc_model: 79, misc_model_static: 177, trigger_teleport: 68, NPC_vehicle: 14 . DESCRIPTION: is a map for JKA (JK3, or jedi academy, call it as you want) it has some features like flayable mini-tie fighters, a bot and vehicle spawner, many rooms to duel, each one with a particular "touch" and things in it, many places to have FFA, many points where u can duel with a dangerous environment (mainly endless pit around you ;). to be precise u can find: -an "outside" room, the top of a mountain with the monolith on top of it -the monolith "main/throne" room, with a view over the hell pit, and doors leading to every other room of the map. -"warp" room, with a buried giant in it and many roks flying around... -"lava" room, with a table for meetings, and a lot of space for duel. -"arena" room, really simple, with vehicles and bot spawner in it. -a room with 2 flying pyramids in it, good for duel/FFA on dangerous place. -"land raider" room (land raider is that kind of tank, inspired by warhammer 40k, that u can find in the cave under the castle, to open its forcefield, use the button on the left of the throne in the same room) -"hall of fame" room, with many pictures in it (and not only.... ;) -a room with a little forest, a waterfall and a round bed. -"the ring", where u can have ridicolous fight using the push of the ring -a room with a giant statue in the middle of it, in witch you can enter. -the caves, accessible from different points of the map. -the "skull castle" room....with 2 accessible towers, the main throne room with the balconys, with a spiked roof,many catwalks, and even an arena on the middle of the roof. supported gametypes: duel, FFA, powerduel, TFFA. is made by my fantasy, anyway is inspired by warhammer 40k. THE STORY: in a galaxy far far away.... on a planet in the edge of the galaxy, buried inside the top of a mountain was discovered an ancient artifact, coming from another time,and from outside the galaxy. is power can be unimaginable. imperials have secured the place around the escavation site, they have cleared the artifact from rocks, but now they waited for you to enter the monolith... map is quite simple in main concept....exterior, interior main room, secondary rooms. anyway it as many "secret" areas, some easy to find, some hard. on one i want give a suggest: just be sure to be in the center under the heaven light when it illuminate the skull ;) (i don't say "how" go there, but be sure to check: the labirinth caves,the arena with the 4 guardians and the "plan B" room. BUGS : no bugs know. report if you find them! -bots spawned in the arena, and the four guardians on certain configurations seems to crash the game i don't know what to do about this, if you have a solution, contact me! -with JKA patch 1.01,with FORCEMOD III, and FORCEMOD III patch 1.01 all works perfectly. but if you have a lot of other *.PK3 (replacing vehicles,hehehehe) it can happen that some vehicles will not work. COMMENTS : was a continous fight against the editor bugs (GTKradiant 1.5.0) for small map it's easy, but when map grow it start to be very buggy! suggest: FORCEMOD III. is a very good mod, will give you much. THE DOOR TO GET IN THE MONOLITH IS OPENED BY FORCE OR BY SHOOTING AT IT. there is a lot of space for dueling....anyway i find fun have fights in "dangerous places".....for this purpose this map is full of this kind of places, hope you will use them ;) THIS MODIFICATION IS NOT MADE, DISTRIBUTED, OR SUPPORTED BY ACTIVISION, RAVEN, OR LUCASARTS ENTERTAINMENT COMPANY LLC.
