Korriban Citadel is one of those maps that attempts to recreate single player levels for multiplayer. I have a confession to make which I may have made at another point in time, in another review, but since I've done so many reviews, I cannot recall whether I admitted this yet or not. I have not finished the single player game for Jedi Academy. *gasp* I know, I know. Feel free to string me up by my toes and tar and feather me - but not until I finish 100 reviews, k? So how much of this map is the author's and how much is Raven's? Gosh, I have no idea. All I know is, I like this map for multiplayer. Except for one thing. If you know me, you'll know what that is. Yup. There's a Rancor. There's a door with a picture of a Rancor on it. And the Rancor totally growled at me before I even got to the door. Scared the living crap out of me. I got up enough courage to open the door, but I pressed my use key one too many times and the door opened, then promptly closed. I decided that everything happens for a reason and I wasn't meant to play with the Rancor. I moved onto a safer area in the map.
Statues of Ragnos are EVERYWHERE in this map. Like, almost a shrine kinda thing. There's a nice little lake of lava below one platform and there are some pieces of stone that can be pushed or pulled. That got a bit frustrating and I died immediately. I took that as a hint to move on and look at other stuff in the map. I love the lighting in this map and there are many places to duel or FFA in this map. There are apparently some secrets here and there, but I found none of them. Frankly, the Rancor scared me off. Nevertheless, this is a map worth your time to download and explore. And would be a good staple for your basic saber-only FFA server.

Uninstall Delete the ffa_kor_citadel.pk3 from your Jedi Academy GameData/Base/ directory. ================================================================ General Comments This is my first ever map and it started out as a project to see if I could teach myself the art of map making. I wanted to create the look and feel of the original SP Korriban levels, especially the final duel area where you fight Tavion/Ragnos. I e-mailed Raven to get their permission and Kenn Hoekstra replied very promptly and said "I don't see any problem with reproducing areas from the single player game for use in multiplayer. I don't believe that causes any copyright problems. Feel free to give it a shot." The map is designed to be used for FFA matches as it contains large duelling areas. There are 3 secret areas - I'll not tell you where they are but there are clues nearby - look for something out of place. Remember that walls can be breakable and some things can be used as well. The secret areas differ in size - they are small, medium and large - and are there to add some fun to the map. ================================================================ Revision History I have fixed some minor errors in the map since Version 1. I haven't changed the basic design of the areas in the map but I have updated most of the areas in the map, adding new structures etc. I have also added a new secret area which is pretty big and there's a few things in there for you to explore and have fun with. ================================================================ Credits Thanks to my friends at both the KoH clan and the NJO clan for inspiring me to make this map. Visit them at http://knightsofhonor.co.uk/ and http://www.nomad-clan.com/ja/ Thanks to those people that have helped me beta test the map and have helped me to improve it. Many thanks to Raven for the original game and for allowing me to recreate the feel of the SP levels Credit must also go to the people whose models I have used in the map, namely Punishment and cling-ons: Daniel "smeg" Vogt Celtic Cross and Crucified Guy: Oak kftelepod: karloff (If you haven't seen any of these models in the map, then you haven't found any of the secret areas !!!) There are a few other models in the map that I don't know the name of the authors - apologies and thanks to them. I have also used Melv "Stukatto" Miller's fountain prefab for SoF2 as the basis for the fountain in the map. =============================================================== Build Software used: GtkRadiant 1.4.0, PakScape, Photoshop 7.0 Build time: 6-8 weeks.
