First thing I noticed once this map had loaded, a beautiful waterfall with the waterfall sound effect - such a simple thing that really caught my attention. Saying that though the choice of music seemed a bit odd, I would have gone for a much more suttle music choice, it would fit in well with that background noise of the waterfall. Speaking of the water, don't fall into it unless you want to find yourself visiting the Grim Reaper fast!
The cliffs have been beautifully sculpted and the lighting smooths them out making them appealing, the buildinds aren't blocky and come across as very fitted to the terrain, the bridge is a real looking bridge that you would expect in the JK universe and the skybox fits perfectly with the color theme of the map.
What can I say, for a dueling map with an edge this is a good map! It has a simplistic style to it which makes it very nicely done. Of course it has its faults, the way the waterfall turns at 90 degrees so sharply at the base, no splashing at the edges but hey, they're minor thing that this map gets away without having

Additional Credits to : Jedi Academy developed by Raven Software and LucasArts. Thanks to : The guys at Raven, especially Ford "Raven" Dye and Justin "Jesterspaz" Negrete for their hard work and invaluable help on the www.map-center.com forums. Ydnar for q3map2 and mapping support. All the guys at Massassi for their input, especially Gonk and Emon. ================================================================ * Map Information * New Sounds : No. All music is from JA. New Skins : No. New Textures : No. New Objects : 2 map_objects from the GtkRadiant JA release not included with original game. Botroutes : Yes. This is a simple Duel and Powerduel map. It's set in a mountain canyon with a river and waterfalls cutting through it. The dueling area is wide open to allow room for great saber action. A fall into the river kills, however, so be prepared for a little push/pull action. This is my first map for either JO or JA. This will eventually become a FFA. I thought I'd release this area as a duel map to alleviate the monotony of all those temple, rift, and imperial base maps. Enjoy. ================================================================ * How To Use This Map * Unzip duel_falls.zip into your GameData/base directory.
