I emptied out my base folder to check if the missing textures were caused my a shader conflict, but that doesn't seem to be the case. That's unfortunate, because besides those couple of missing textures this map looks really nice. The texturing goes together very well, and the author did a good job mixing up similarly styled textures to give the map a uniformly styled but interesting look. In case you were wondering, no, this isn't another KotOR Jedi Enclave map. It does make use of one of the nicer-sounding music selections from KotOR, though, which gives it kind of a KotOR-ish feel, if you're into that kind of thing.
This map seemed relatively small at first glance, but there is a hidden area that significantly increases the size of the map, if you can find a way into it. I didn't bother looking for it because I didn't want to accidentally spoil it, and I'm notoriously bad at finding those things... ;). It should provide plenty of room for a decent-sized FFA, or even a duel, and there's little chance of getting lost. The lighting seems pretty good throughout, and there's one room that's incredibly dark. There's a reason for this, as I realized. It's to trick you into falling off a bridge and killing yourself. Oops, maybe I said too much...
No bot support has been included with this map, which is kind of a shame, but minus the missing textures it seems like a well made and aesthetically pleasing map to play. I hope someone proves I'm an idiot and there really aren't missing textures, or that the author sends us a fix, because I personally like this map and I think y'all should give it a look-see for yourselves!
