Well, here's an interesting idea. Jedichris5 has attempted to recreate the classic Battlefront 1 map, Bespin: Platforms, using assets from Kamino. Sadly, execution of said attempt was not satisfactory.
So you've got three Command Posts; one for the Empire, one for the Rebels, and one in the middle which is neutral. The layout of the map is mostly the same as Battlefront I Bespin, however, the platforms and objects are sized and shaped differently. Gameplay was lacking; all of the combat was centralized on the area near the neutral Command Posts. There's some flyers, but there are no flight paths for the AI, so they end up simply crashing into the buildings.
The visual aspect of the map was poor as well. Upon spawning, I noticed that I could see where the sky ended, and below that line was just a black abyss of nothingness. Looking down, there were some Geonosis mountains as part of the sky, and the terrain was totally white, which looked terrible. Also, seeing as the Kamino platforms are unchanged from the assets, they do not resemble Bespin at all. One last oddity I'd like to mention is the fact that both the Rebels and Imperials have TIE Fighters. Shouldn't the Rebels have X-Wings and Y-Wings?
In conclusion, this map, while a beta, is still in need of much work in order for one to fully enjoy it. If you are enticed by the screenshots, go ahead and download this. Be sure to read the readme for installation instructions, among other important things, and make sure you leave feedback for the author if you download this file, it's how we can help others improve and grow as modders.
www.youtube.com/jedichris5 PLEEEZE READ ME!!!! Good, now that I have gotten a hold of your cranium's attention, please allow your seeing orafrace to observe the following notes. Because the map is still incomplete... 1. THIS MAP IS UNABLE TO RUN IN CLONE WARS!!!! (don't try it, or the game will crash) 2. This is a Beta Test Version. I highly reccomend you leave a comment or two on FileFront or GameToast to give me some pointers. 3. I'm a novice at this. The map will look and feel better in its final version. I don't know how to fix the sky, fix the AI, ect, so I'm relying on my fellow GameToast and FileFront comrades to help me out. Meantime, give me feedback! ALL CONSTRUCTIVE CRITISISM IS APPRECIATED GREATLY! Install: Move the BV3 folder to C:\Program Files\LucasArts\Star Wars Battlefront II\GameData\addon All glory and honor goes to Jesus Christ; The GOD OF GODS, LORD OF LORDS, and KING OF KINGS
