"Ok, this map is a fairly large download simply do to the actual size of the playable map. The map itself consists mainly of a "city" type area and a Jedi pyramid... hence the name. Lets start with the city area.
The actual city area I am torn. Aspects of the buildings look very well done such as some of the texturing and the general layout. There are a couple entrances to other areas out there, afew being a small auditorium, a bar of sorts that looks really nice, and an elevator. Now, once you take the elevator to the top, it takes you to an office type room (see pics below). My complaint I guess would be the general lack of detail in the city, along with the abrupt edges of the city that just stop." - From first version's review.
The rest of the review will be different due to the changes the author has made. Now, the general layout of this map remains the same. Upon entering the pyramid, you find yourself in a lobby area once again meeting c3po. From here, there are three different directions you can take. One leads to areas of specialized rooms I think each designed for specific people. Another direction will take you to a form of jedi quarters divided into blue and green sides. The final direction leads you to a hangar type room connected to a medical lab.
The difference's in the two maps, v1 and v2, rest in the areas of both texturing and lighting. While the outside remains unchanged as far as I can tell, the inside of the pyramid has been slightly altered in spots. Some of the rooms in v1 where very bright in reference to colors while in this version, things have been toned down. The quarter's hallways, the council room, and the yellow hallway are prime examples of the changes. The council room is probably the most noticeable and is a great improvment in my opinion.
The same things I noted in v1 remain though as far as negatives. Some z-fighting still can be seen and in some areas there is a general lack of detail. And, there are still some missing textures(example-c3po room in the corners). Having said this, I liked v1 and I prefer the changes that have been made in v2, Nice improvments.
