The Kitchen, La Cocina, Die Küche, Keittiö...whatever you want to call it, it still's one room of darkness.
First thing...White. Wow, is there a lot of white. The entire kitchen's primary furnishings appear to be all white. The lighting is rather poor, as it just makes the entire room seem SEVERELY sterile. That and it sort of offends the eyes. However, those aside, the room looks great. It felt practically like a kitchen, save for a few things:
- Appliances Sizes: I noticed the appliances had some rather strange sizes. The oven, dishwasher, and the washer/dryer set seemed a bit wider than necessary, and the fridge seemed a bit taller than needed. The counters however were at a good usable height.
- Some things are a bit high: Yeah, shouldn't have to get up on a chair to fetch the phone. The overhead oven controls were also rather high, as were some of the cupboards.
- Heads don't go in the microwave: I can't speak on the rancor baby in the toaster oven, but HEADS ARE NOT microwave-friendly. Believe me, I tried it once. They're best cooked in a pot or cauldron, so you can spoon out the hair and what not. However, this isn't home ec, so I'll leave it at that.
Now, practical game playability is a bit hard to see. In a close quarters mod like OJP, maybe it'll work, but there's not enough space for a real duel to really happen in BaseJA/JA+ combat. Why? It's one tiny room. Not much maneuverability. A kata could cover a lot of ground here. Also, the following weapons are available:
- E11 - Bowcaster - Dets, Detpack, Tripmines
There are also health packs, shields, bacta, ammo, and a force field. Honestly, no matter how I think it, it's going to result in VERY short duel sessions. VERY short, indeed.
All in all, however, this is a very nice display of skill. Perhaps the author may be tempted to expand it into a full house with surrounding yard. Now THAT I could see as a playable duel map.

Default: C:Program Files/LucasArts/Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy/GameData/base Uninstall by removing Kitchen.pk3 DESCRIPTION This is a small map of a kitchen. Appropriate for duel. I modeled the kitchen after the one in my house. This map is a homage to Masta Ace's Soda & Soap song. BUGZ There's a red glow in the corner where phone's at. I don't know why. This is not caused by the health pack, It goes away after a while. Let me know about anymore bugs. COMMENTS This originally started as a prefab pack. No music was added to maintain a small file size and focus more on textures. All textures made by me (except the glass/caulk/skybox). They were drawn from scratch, modified stock photos, or taken w/ camera. You may use the textures for your map as long as you give me credit. Nothing is usable. Don't bother pressing your use key.
