Here's the final version of DarthDaddy's first map: Capital Down Part 1.
Most of you probably already know what it's like but just in case you didn't check out the first version I'll give a brief description of the map.
The map takes place on a desertous planet with cliffs here and there. It mostly consists of plains. A CIS capital has crashed (hence the name) and the Republic is attacking the enemy forces who survived the wreck. Each side is armed with many vehicles. The stories behind the map can be found in the ReadMe.
According to the ReadMe the author has added some Techno Union Ships, fixed some sounds (some are still missing), and fixed some missing textures. So in other words this is a good update so if you have the original version toss into the recycle bin and download this new one.
One thing I love about this map is that you can play it with your video settings all on high. It makes the map look great. Also just the sight of all the vehicles fighting is pretty cool itself.
My only problem is the map's size. It's just really big, no matter how many units you have on it. Speaking of which it'd be nice if the unit count was increased. This can be easily done by making a simple change to the LUA. But as DarthDaddy says, the player can simply up the unit count and ticket numbers in the Conquest Settings. Either way works I suppose. But just to fix the size problem I'd recommend moving some of the Command Posts closer to the ship. That way there will be more fighting and less traveling.
Overall this is a good start for your first map and a nice improvement over the original one. Keep up the good work!
STARWARS BATTLEFRONT II Map Capital Down 1 (Final Version) Made by Jonathan Witt (a.k.a. "DarthDaddy") The Story: Clone Wars – A CIS capital ship has crashed landed on a desert planet on the Outer Rim. Obiwan and Anakin are leading a detachment to finish the ship off, while Dooku and Grievous are attempting to establish a base at the crash site. Infantry is on the ground, vehicles have been deployed, and fighters are at the ready. The battle is on! Galactic Civil War – The Alliance has discovered the wreckage of an abandoned capital ship from the Clone Wars period. What's left of the ship has been turned into a base, but the Empire has discovered its whereabouts. Infantry is on the ground, vehicles have been deployed, and fighters are at the ready. The battle is on! Installation: Copy the folder "CD1" to your "Star Wars Battlefront II/GameData/AddOn" directory. Gameplay: I highly recommend turning up the AI controlled opponents to 32 and upping the conquest reinforcements to 500, in order to produce the kind of fight these maps were designed for. Acknowledgments: This map still has some sound issues, but provides some intense action regardless. Updates: I have added a couple of Techno Union ships, fixed some of the sound problems, and fixed the texture on the hull of the CIS capital ship.
