is, but something about this map just really grabs me. Maybe it is because I like the idea of locations like space stations, where so many different species build there own little enclaves and there are lots of nooks and crannies to hide a way in and so many different layers to explore. I really think this map has captured that spirit.This map strongly reminds me of Omega from Mass Effect 2, and after hearing the music playing in the club, which I am absolutely sure is the same music playing in the Afterlife club on Omega, I am wondering whether that is where the author got his inspiration! As you would expect from such a locale, the map is nice and grubby with rusting metal worn carpets and garishly coloured ads festooning the buildings. There is an apartment complex, a market, a med center and the aforementioned club, with features a stage with strobe lights and red lightning, which is either intended to 'energise' the dancers or electrocute them if they are just terrible dancers. These coloured lights and the electric bolts can be individually turned off from panels on the wall though, as can the music which can be turned off behind the bar, if you are after something more sedate!Cleverly, the spawn points are actually in the 'cloning centers' la Star Wars Galaxies, which means that when you die you respawn in the cloning machines, a very clever alternative to having the spawn points just spread out everywhere, though the downside is that it makes this map unsuitable for an FFA, but then again that is not what it is designed for!With a training 'dojo' and its own stadium, this map is perfectly set up for clan or guild use and I think it is one of the best such maps I have seen for a while!The map does lack some textural and architectural detail in places, and the layout is a little confusing, but these things arent really significant drawbacks. If anything, a slightly confusing layout makes the map feel more organic and chaotic, though I do think some more signs here and there would be useful!All in all a very cool theme and very good execution, though I would love to see a bigger version of the map! ;)Bot Support: YesNew Textures: YesNew Sounds: NoNew Music: YesGame Types: FFA, TFFA~Nozyspy~
