Before the SDK was released for JK2, someone made a map called CloudShark. It was designed for those who wanted to duel, but didn't want to wait in line like you do with the duel game type. So you could have several "duels" going on at one time on an FFA server and people weren't getting in the way of each other and FPS wasn't affected because they were seperate rooms. Once again, we're faced with a new game without the SDK yet, so no mod to allow multiple duels in an FFA server.
So now to fill that niche for JA, we have FFA Paladine. The courtyard thing that is floating in space is where you begin. Walk through any one of those arches and you'll find yourself in one very large FFA area with four tall pillars. Find a teleporter and slip through one and you'll end up on top of one of those pillars. Don't worry about falling off the edge ... you won't. And there's just enough room for a good duel there. If you turn around and walk behind where you first entered the big FFA area, you'll come to some stairs. Up there is a big area for dueling too. And two transporters on either end. They'll both take you to two different duel arenas.
This might be a good addition to an FFA server that really focuses on dueling. I have to say that I was very disappointed with this map when I first took a look at it. I was expecting each arch to lead to a different area. And then when I found that they all led to the same area, I was at least hoping for each transporter to lead to a different kinda area. But they each only lead to the tops of those pillars. Needless to say, I was a bit bored with what was there. But I hadn't read the readme until after I played the map, so I didn't know what was intended. Knowing now what they wanted to do with this map, I'd say they accomplished their goal.

This is a JK:JA FFA map :D 1. Setup instruction for the ffa_paladine map. a) download the ffa_paladine.pk3 file to a directory of your choice b) copy it to the .../GameData/base folder where "..." stands for the root directory of your JK:JA game for example c:/ProgramFiles/Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy/GameData/base c) enjoy it !!! 2. This is a map for ffa and duel purposes without any botroutes just to have something different for now :D 3. Developed by [Paladine]Palin, www.paladine.desk.pl, firstname.lastname@example.org 4. I created the file with the meaning to have something simillar to the well known "Cloudshark" map for JK2:JO and also to provide a simple map for lightsabre challenges. This map was made in a hurry and will not be upgraded. The main concept was to have lots of space and low fps consumption.
