File Description

There is something about this map I really like. I think it's the weather. Nivalis is a decidedly snowy map. Not only is it snowy, but it's very much blizzardy. It's very difficult to see where you're going, so I was glad the author provided the screenshots else I might not have been able to find everything, even despite this map's relatively small size.

The map consists of two areas: a small, indoor section, and a much larger outdoor section. The indoor section is secluded from the snow falling outside, but as I mentions it is relatively small, so you will be quite vulnerable. Outside is a different story. The snow reduces visibility, and even despite the glowing lightsaber it's very difficult to see things at a distance. It will be far easier for you to sneak up on your foe. Of course it's easier for them to do the same, as well.

The map contains an interesting choice in music: Vivaldi. In fact, it is the Winter concerto from Vivaldi's Four Seasons. Fitting, it seems, given the swirling snow. There was one thing missing, though: ambient sounds. It was amazing to see so much snow falling, but no wind or other snow-related sounds. It was kind of disappointing, but probably not all that noticible for most people. The author also claims the map is meant for role-play. Whilst I'm sure that's what he had in mind, I personally can't see this map being great for role-play. Not only is 75% of it hard to see, but it's just not very interactive. It still seems like a great map for saber fights, though. Give it a try if you're looking for another good snow map.
