Sith Cave



this cave is. :(So, I guess by the word Sith and my intro, you probably guessed this is a duel map in a lava cave. First thing I noticed was the hammed up Battle of the Heroes anthem ringing in my head @_@; something a little more dark and foreboding mighta worked better. Then came the actual map itself; it had two "areas" in a manner of speaking, connected through an archway. The bigger area is a large bridge suspended ...either in or over the lava at a very low altitude, don't know what the author preferred to think was going on. The smaller was a small circular battle platform intended for more close quarters dueling, I presume.There's not much to speak on the smaller dueling area from a technical standpoint. Everything seems okay, save for maybe the repetitive texturing. It's the larger area that I was more disappointed in, actually. Rule of thumb, LDC: Don't assume we won't go there. There was very little effort applied in the lava. I understand, you're probably a bit fresh in mapping and it can get tedious, but shortcutting like this will affect your overall work in the long run. The first thing I always test with lava, acid, or water: Does it kill you the way MP/FFA5's lava does? Some people take the effort, others don't. This was sort of below average, because basically only a thin layer of lava stands between you and safety. Yep, below that, you can walk around with impunity, and enjoy the warmth. It gets worse: The waterfalls don't even have the proper triggers to burn you up. It looks like there was an attempt, but I guess the lava monsters packed up and went home, leaving the elderly behind. Should a player force jump to the lavafalls, he can effectively sneak under the map proper and basically lurk under there for a while. Along with that, there's a couple holes in the map under there, and I could even see one above the lavafall.So yeah, I'd say this map has quite a bit of flaws in its current state, but with a little elbow grease, this can be polished off into a respectable duel map. Make the lava more of a threat, fix your levelshots directory(You spelled it leveshots,) and maybe add some music that isn't so....oh, wait, your Lord Darth Corny...well, okay then .-.New Textures: NayNew Music: AyeSecrets to plunder: NayBot Support: Aye- Averus Retruthan
