File Description

Curiously I was just playing Knights of the Old Republic earlier this week and got to face Malak. Let me tell you... thermal detonators are a gift from God. KotOR fans should instantly recognize this map as a pretty high quality recreation of the observation deck of the Star Forge, where the final battle between your character and Darth Malak takes place.

This map, though not a 100% perfect recreation, does a very admirable job of recreating the location, complete with Force harvesters, big wires everywhere, and one amazing skybox courtesy of MaceCrusherMadunusus. While this version certainly has a brighter, more yellow feel than the original, most of the proportions and details are there and relatively spot on, creating a wonderful ambiance and a wonderfully accurate overall feel for the whole map. The brush and patchwork are also excellent. It's obvious a lot of blood sweat and tears were put into this map and it goes a lot farther than a lot of similar maps would!

Now for the super fanboys I'll cover some of the inaccuracies and bugs. First of all don't try to devmap this map like I did. It's not designed for free for all and doesn't even have the appropriate spawn points, so it'll crash. Just use it for duel like it was meant to be. Secondly die-hard fans will notice that some details are slightly inaccurate, such as the backs of the harvesters on the raised platforms and some other minor details, and that some details are missing entirely, such as the two locked doors on the lowered dead-end ramps. This doesn't particularly bother me since I didn't know they were there in the first place (heck, if you went down there in KotOR Malak would destroy you!). One last thing I wanted to mention was that I did notice some untextured faces on the bottom of the back of the harvester, which I assume never got uncaulked, so that may deserve some attention. Perhaps if a fix is planned the harvesters could be looked at to be given the appropriate effects as seen in KotOR. ;)

Overall I'd say it's a great map to add to the KotOR collection. It's a memorable location, and now you can have your own epic duels while observing the battle for the Star Forge! Just remember... duel only!
