Skiing: The act of trying to commit suicide by means of throwing yourself over the edge of a mountain.
Anyway, this is a nice little map. The main feature of this map is the giant ski jump, of course. Personally, I would scrap the skiing part and replace it with a human-cannonball sized missile launcher, but that's beside the point.
There are two huts, one at the bottom of the hill, and one at the top. The lower one features a living room with a view, bathrooms, a room for... archaeology? Bleh. And lastly, there's a door to the ski lift. Up on top of the hill, is a somewhat smaller house. This one features a lounge with a fireplace, bar (what is it with maps and bars? It's like women and shoes!), and a case full of small momento-things. In a room to one side is the ski-jump itself, and a connecting door to the lifts. Moving back to the bottom, the gounds feature a frozen lake, the bottom end of the ski slope, and the edge of the whole flat world! :P
And now for my gripes.
1. The thing is on an island in the sky. Baaaad.
2. The ice on the lake isn't textured underneath, so if you break only a small hole and fall in, you can see out from under the ice.
3. The couch in the lower lodge has some holes in it.
4. Not enough interactivity.
5. Needs more mappage to it: More areas, more details, more immersiveness.
On the whole, a nice little map. When in one of the lodges, I get a sense of comfort that is achieved by being in a warm cottage with a view of the cold. Nice work there. :D

*********************************** Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy *********************************** TITLE: Skijumping AUTHOR: Darth Pathos FILENAME: ski.pk3 FILESIZE: 10 mb DATE RELEASED: 9 September 2008 CREDITS: The music in the secret Duel Arena is by Enslaved - Frost INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: Put pk3 in base. If you don't manage to do so, you're not worthy of playing my map. DESCRIPTION: It's a winter landscape set on a mountain, with ski lifts and a frozen lake. There are secrets. BUGS: Few lighting issues. As usual, i concentrated on gameplay, not on a good-looking landscape. COMMENTS: I would have loved to give this map a better atmosphere, but i simply don't have the time i would need ( + my PC is ... slow). I would consider this map as a fun map, because there is an imo quite interesting feature: If you find the secret cave and enter the strange light bubble, you and a random other player from anywhere in the map will be teleported into a secret ice duel arena together. If one of you falls down there, the other one will be teleported to a reward... There also is a CTF mode, which should be quite interesting and fun, too - i suggest you just try it out =) This map has the following hidden places: - duel-entry cave - cave with rocket launcher - sniper room in the upper house ;) Furthermore the lower house features a really comfy sauna, where you can heal yourself (use the water pot thingy) and relax from all the cold winter stuff. I'd be happy about feedback. Keep this community alive, guys! THIS MODIFICATION IS NOT MADE, DISTRIBUTED, OR SUPPORTED BY ACTIVISION, RAVEN, OR LUCASARTS ENTERTAINMENT COMPANY LLC.
