File Description

This small map features an island, surrounded by water, with a small structure and some trees in the middle. The architecture itself -- other than the terrain of the actual island -- is simple and not really anything new or exciting. The terrain of the island is pretty solid and well done, although I personally think it's a bit too small even for a duel. The biggest problem is that the wood texture of the majority of the structure is from JK2 and has not been included, so you'll have to patch that yourself if you have JK2.

My only realistic complaint is with the lighting, which is far too dim when compared with the skybox. This gives the map a very unbalanced, unrealistic feel to it. I would definitely recommend this, along with the missing texture, be fixed. No bot support or anything else like that has been included, so if you're interested kick back on the beach with a margarita and watch the sunset. If you're under-age, just give the margarita to me. :)

This version two of the Island map really fixes the majority of the concerns that were expressed about version one. The lighting has been greatly improved and the missing JK2 wood texture has been replaced. I wouldn't go so far as to say this map is perfect and doesn't need any more updates, though.

My biggest concern is the water versus skybox issue. First, the water is a completely different color than the water in the skybox which is kind of odd. Now I don't know what exactly can be done to make the water not look like it just ends... but I'd say trying to match the color would go a long way toward making it not quite as noticeable. I'm also thinking some grass or something might aesthetically help the ground out a little, y'know what I mean?

One of the cool additions to this version is some boats that weren't in the last one. One of them even circles the island! Spooky, eh? Well, ghost ships are just in time for Halloween. Also watch out for some lightning strikes. The storm doesn't sound too bad... but it's always the quiet ones that kill ya.
