You know, it's about time I made a template review for the beginner map. That way, I could just paste that in, and edit the various lists of errors according to the map in question. Because, it's getting kind of tiring reviewing maps which are basically, boxes. There's only so much you can write about a square box, which had repeating and missing textures.
Alright, maybe that was a bit harsh, but it's true. This map is a box map, which consists of three rooms. The first is huge, and has a repeating texture everywhere, with a giant statue in the middle. The author did clip it, which was good, but he used the clip shader as opposed to 'physics_clip.' That means that although you can't walk through it, you can shoot through it! ;) Oh, and as suggested by the name, the floor is slippy. One big mass of (repetitive) slippery ice. Isn't that great? The music (some rock band modern-type stuff) didn’t fit either.
The other two rooms are perhaps (dare I say it) worse. Actually, that's not altogether true. One of them is worse, one is a smidgen better. The pool room has a box for a pool, with the ugly default raven water in it. There's also a second pool in this room. Because it was once of those missing texture pools (You know, the grey and white squares of death) I didn't realise it was actually....a pool of lava. Yes folks, a pool of lava! In a swimming pool room, next to an Ice rink. *shrug* Oh, and the doors need a 'wait' key to prevent them opening and closing too quickly.
The final room was a little bedroom, with a TV showing an upside down image of a little garden. The TV looked alright, as did the VCR underneath it, but that's about the only thing. Oh wait! No, there is a really positive thing about this map. (I am actually being sincere this time.) It has bot support. Way to go! :D

*********************************** Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy *********************************** TITLE: Slip Arena 2 AUTHOR: freakinweirdo (a.k.a. JIMMY (for when i'm playing on servers)) E-MAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org FILENAME: slip_arena2.pk3 FILESIZE: 5.13 mb DATE RELEASED: March 4, 2006 CREDITS: George Lucas (for starting it all), and Lucas Arts (for making the game). INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: Put in *drive installed on*\Program Files\LucasArts\Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy\GameData\Base DESCRIPTION: This is a map I made in my spare time, but due to me having to completly format my harddrive, it i'm affraid isn't done yet, and will never be done. All i could recover of it was the .pk3 file. Anyway, it is a map with 2 arenas, slip arena 1, and slip arena 2. Slip arena 1 has a caged rancor, a (nearly)invincible jawa spawner, a secret weapon chamber, an ice slide, and a spy television. Slip arena 2 has a pool room, a bedroom, and a gigantic sith statue. BUGS: (Note: Most of the bugs are there because I was unable to fix them due to the fact that windows turned on me.) #1) Jawa spawner spawns multiple jawas with one press. #2) For some reason you always first spawn in slip arena 2, but when you die, it is random which arena you spawn in. #3) The TV in the bedroom has an up-side-down picture. #4) Lava has a missing texture. COMMENTS: #1) Click on the DVD player to watch npcs fight. #2) Get eaten by the rancor. #3) Watch the rancor try to eat the jawas sliding past it (for me it's funny). #4) Watch the bots attempt to navigate the map on the ice. #5) USE THE USE BUTTON TO OPEN DOORS!!! #6) This is my first map #7) Vegetables should be purple #8) I live on Endor, Hoth, and Tatooine #9) My pet is a crossbreed between a rancor, a wampa, and the sarlaac pit #10) My television is older than I am (seriously, it's true) #11) I am 983.33333334 Ft.
