Here we have a slight update to Toshik's Korriban Sith Academy map. No, it's not the Sith Academy from Knights of the Old Republic, although it may have originally been intended to be. The map features two generalized areas -- inside and outside. The outside portion is a valley, not dissimilar to all the descriptions of the Valley of the Dark Lords that we have out there. It's got valley right there in the name, after all! The terrain is pretty good, although there are many areas that are not smoothed which detracts from a realistic feel.
The entrance to the main complex really struck me as unique. Scripts are used to create a compound door that opens in a very interesting way. In terms of gameplay, this may hinder gameplay as the doors open very slowly. So you trade playability for eye candy -- your call on whether that's for you or not. I found the architecture inside to be somewhat hit or miss. I originally thought that the textures didn't fit with the more modern architectural style, but after a while it grew on me. I do love the layout of the map, and it's big enough to support a decent-sized free for all. The architecture is also varied enough to avoid boredom.
There are some small updates and some minor additions from the first version, but I'll let you read about them in the read-me as they do seem more detail oriented than content oriented. My biggest suggestion would be to work on the lighting. In some areas the lighting just seems fairly unrealistic (ie pitch black in the shadows outside, and the light from the flames seems far too yellow). Otherwise seems like a good map and I think with some more aesthetic updates it could really polish up well.
