File Description

The author wanted to point out that when he put 'real' in the name of the map, he was referring only to the canonical references to the complete Yavin IV Jedi Academy being the Jedi Academy, as opposed to a Jedi Academy. Apparently no hubris was intended.

Now that we've got past that, this is a map of the Yavin IV Jedi Academy as seen in Jedi Outcast. We've been assured that it's not just a splice of the old JK2 maps, so that's enough for me. Most of this wouldn't be too hard to recreate anyway, it seems, and I'd really say only about half of it is old material. 66%, tops. A lot of the material is new, unseen in JK2, and seems to be based on several locations seen in A New Hope, and a couple locations I think may not have been seen at all. For instance there's the front of the temple which is kind of similar to the front as seen in the new version of A New Hope (with some changes to make it playable -- couldn't add the whole jungle, could we?). There's also a medical wing which I don't think was displayed in any of the films, but it stands to reason with a bunch of Jedi wannabe's running around they'd need some medical facilities. There's also some kind of storage closet, which I got a kick out of because like... what's the point? None, which makes it all the more awesome. :p

I think the Yavin temple free for all (or CTF, or whichever it was) map for JK2 was my favorite during my very brief multi-player stint back in 2003 or whenever it came out. One of the outdoor sections of that map is included here, which is kind of neat. Also, if you ever explored the Yavin temple in JK2's single-player campaign, before speaking to Luke, you may have noticed some students shoving blocks around with the Force. You can do that now too, if you're feeling bored.

Overall it's a huge map, so if you're actually planning on doing a free-for-all bring a lot of your buddies otherwise you might get bored trying to find each other! I'd bring my GPS unit too, just to be on the safe side. Map looks great for role-players too, so it can do double duty. I personally think it's a great replica with a lot of potential for use, so I'd definitely recommend serious players pick it up. I'm sure I forgot to mention a few areas (there're so many that I started forgetting them before I finished testing the map) so definitely go exploring.

Author's Notes
**************

*This Map is NOT decompiled. Its made from stratch. Its been made using screenshots and a lot of trial and error :p.

*Theirs another version of "The Real Jedi Academy" that has been uploaded to JK2Files without my permission by an author named "Revan" whos claiming credit for it. I made that map, not him. It was made as a special version for The Jedi Academy Domain.

*Some people seem to think im trying to cause offense or something by calling the map the REAL jedi academy, but im not. Im just going to copy what Zedar posted on JK2Files because he explained it better than i could :p
"It's called The Real Jedi Academy because it is a replica of the actual Jedi Academy from the game, which is, of course, canon (meaning it's the official thing). The other Academy maps, such as Academy v3, are jedi academy-style maps, but they do not represent the actual Jedi Academy."

*There is some lighting missing in one part of the map but theres nothing i can do about it now, sorry :p
