This map was originally intended to be a contest submission, but the author apparently became very ill during that time, so while a little bit late, we can still enjoy it now.
Mandalorian fans will like this map, which is meant to be some kind of Mandalorian base on the planet Mandalore. The area where the map sits initially reminded me a little bit of Dxun, for those who have played KotOR2. Perhaps this is where this author gained some of his inspiration. In any case, I'll agree that the map looking very much Mandalorian in style. It includes what I suspect to be a dueling ring, surrounded by spikes, and a simple platform in the middle of a large chasm.
The texturing might be described as hectic, yet still fitting. Many different textures have been used to create the map, but they all seem to go together fairly well. The lighting in this map is also quite good, as far as I can tell, and keeps the skybox's somewhat overcast look from being out of place. The architecture is varied and interesting, although mainly angular. It works, though.
Overall a good duel map, yet it would probably be functional for a sabers FFA as well. A shame it didn't get in in time for the contest. It would have made a good competitor!

DESCRIPTION: This map is of a remote fort in the jungles of the planet Mandalore. The map is a large duel or small FFA map. It includes two main areas, a courtyard and a landing pad. The main area has a Mandalorian banner and mythosaur bones. COMMENTS: This was going to be made for the JK3 files Intermediate map contest, but I couldn't finish it because I was sick. Well when I first heard of the contest I looked at all the areas in which we were judged and decided that a map on the planet Mandalore would be the best. So this map has a few custom textures and various ideas impletmented from a few stuff on Wookiepedia about Mandalorians. Well after a few days sick and a few weeks of not really doing anything, its done.
