Clan maps. Love them or hate them, they are an essential part of Jedi Academy culture. Personally, I like clan maps, because they offer an opportunity to map in a whole different way that you would for an FFA map or other gametype’s. Infact, a clan map really should have its own gametype! They are also unique to each clan, and offer a variety of features.
Ok, I will stop saying how much I like clan maps now…lest some other mappers that I know decide to send assassins after me!
Anywaaayyyy…lets move swiftly on with the review! ;)
Here we have a small FFA clan map for the SLC clan. It’s basically like a small boxing stadium, with a boxing ring in the middle (which appears to be copiously blood soaked!), a grandstand at one end, and a bar at the other. One stand out feature that I liked about this map was that in the bar, there is a huge mirror. So you can sit there sipping your chosen beverage whilst looking at the FFA or duelling action going on in the ring behind you.
Personally since this map doesn’t contain any other areas, I think it should have been rather a lot bigger. As it stands now, its only big enough for a duel, or a small FFA, but that’s just my opinion.
I like the idea of this map, since it would be good for clan tournaments and such. However there are a few things that could be improved upon.
Firstly, this map doesn’t have any music! Though I suppose that makes a certain amount of sense, since during clan tourneys and the like, the participants usually have their own music playing. There was also one missing texture, on the only door. Another thing, although not particularly important for a clan map, is that this map doesn’t have bot support. So a few minor things to work on there.
All in all though a good style of map for clans, although it does have the SLC logo emblazoned on the walls, so some clans might not want to use it because of that.
Also, just before I finish, I would like to mention that I was most impressed with the level shot. Though simple, it looks really cool, and adds a nice little touch when the map is loading.
So if you like the look of this map, or are part of the SLC clan, why not give this map a download!
