Here is a duel map that resembles more of a work of art than a map. Patrick developed this map for a contest where the use of textures was limited.. some of you may have followed it.
The map is theme based of a lab in both past and present, depending on which section of the map your on. In past section, you are confronted by a lab of sorts in pristine condition. The structure along with the detail work done by the author is amazing. The only issue I could see was.. as the author stated, the fps is poor so if your machine is not the best, you WILL have issues (and even those with high end machines will most likely). The fire doesnt hurt as well.
The area for the present section has been invaded by vines destroying much of the lab. Again, stunning. Even with the contraints of the contest, the author still did a great job of balancing the textures and producing a visually pleasing map. You'll have to DL this to see for yourself. It's rather sad though... the map is so nice and the fps is so bad.

================================================================ Map name : Devolution Map background : A mysterious seed pod is found in space. On a distant, desolate world, strange experiments are undertaken in a secret laboratory. The link between the past and present is shattered, as a strange portal shows the way to certain devastation. Game : Jedi Academy Multi-Player Game Type : Duel Version : 1.0 Date : September 3rd, 2005 Author : Patrick Haslow Email : email@example.com Web : www.otherlander.com Map description : Close quarters lightsaber combat between a secret lab in the past and the present. I intended this map to have a narrative sense to it, as if it were a location where a gripping story was taking place. Hopefully players will see it the same way and enjoy being being immersed in the awful events at the laboratory.
