Republic Cruiser Prefab

Description

Prefab rating: * * * ½ (out of four) — 9/10

There are prefabs for Jedi Knight: Academy? They're mostly unheard of ever since Raven decided to sloppily program into what was supposed to be an expansion pack the ability to fly vehicles. But the author of the Trade Federation map, which has not yet been reviewed as of the time of this writing, CommanderKEEN, has requested that I place his Republic Cruiser in the prefabs section. I hope that Maps > Miscellaneous is close enough.

What he created is formally called the Consular-class space cruiser that was made by the Corellian Engineering Corporation. Its usual purpose is just as a Jedi transport to locations of interests. They were colored red to signify neutrality and the fact that they probably carried ambassadors. This one specifically is called the Radiant VII, and it was used to transport Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi to deal with the Naboo conflict in "Star Wars: Episode I—The Phantom Menace," where it was soon destroyed by the Trade Federation.

Well, let me tell you that it looks great in the map. It's shiny, perhaps more so than the real thing, and it got the features right. A prefab isn't much of a file to most casual players, but it's a well-made part of a larger whole. I didn't encounter any problems in opening it in the Radiant mapping program, except that mine always crashes when I try to touch any buttons (my computer doesn't seem to want me to map or model with anything other than Blender).

The author expresses his wishes that you use it in your own map, add detail, or create an interior (and would appreciate credit for doing so). If you're a mapper and you just happen to need this, don't hesitate. The two screenshots at the bottom are from the Trade Federation map, but they should hopefully show it well.

Even though it's really not anything except spectacle, it works, it's accurate, and it looks good. Great job to CommanderKEEN. It's unfortunate that he's restricted by his humble computer, which he hopes to eventually upgrade, and I can see the restrictions: you're capable of doing greater things, but you can't—if the level of detail could be taken to another level, this would be a four star (or 10/10) rave review.
