Here is a little treat for all you KOTOR players. The undoubtedly most despised, part of the game by it's community. Why, I do not know, I personally enjoyed it the most, but to each their own.
Now to the actual map shall we? We start at the main section of Upper Taris, the walkways, let it suffice when I say it looks very good, albeit a bit empty, however it's just an alpha so things are surely subject to change. The walkways seem a bit shorter than they were in the original KOTOR, but maybe the running speed was just slower in that game.
The slightly more interesting section of the map is the medical room. It includes the mighty healing bacta tanks, all of which lack clipping, so if you feel damaged, or just dirty you too, can visit one the way Revan did. It was wonderful seeing Taris in all of its glory, not even the medical hub was understaffed, there are two droids, and a man just waiting to fulfill your greatest medical fantasies. The whole area is pretty faithful to the original, I would have checked down to the number of bacta tanks but my copy of the game seems to have been misplaced.
The texturing of the entire level is done very well, the author even used the bump mapping simulation technique, and it does its job. The textures are very crisp and just pleasant to look at, maybe slightly bland...
I guess the biggest fault of the map is that it's plagued with invisible walls. There is literally no such thing as falling out of the level, save for one glitch I found which lets you scale the sky scrapers, and consequently, fall off.
I found no glitches the author didn't mention, those being some invincible NPCs, bugged doors and water which doesn't always go SPLASH when you try to take a bath. All of which have been promised to be fixed.
