This version mainly features the addition of a UT-AT command vehicle and reduced reinforcement count.
Originally added 12-28-2013
The map was not reviewed when it was released, but here's the review of the earlier 1.3 version:
"Jade Moon 1.3" is Jaspo's third? revision of his original map Jade Moon.
Structurally, it remains very similar to its first version, with all the accoutrements that bears. It's still a little too large for my tastes, but there does appear to be a better job done in populating the world. I'm not a fan of big maps as a rule, so bear that in mind.
In any case, this version is a slightly updated change of the past versions. Its most notable change is the addition of two community-made new vehicles to the CW era. There is a full listing of changes below. It mentions that flyer splines were added, but I still often saw flyers crashing - I think a reduction in the amount of flyers would be beneficial. The author made a change to the behavior of marksman units, and while it may have been to his liking, I could have done without it. It was very irritating having the AI with their inerrant accuracy snipe at me from who-knows-where.
The addition of the vehicles is a nice change, but a minor quibble - their weapons are all missing localization.
I stand by a lot of what was mentioned in the first review above, and I think one of the neatest things to see in any future revisions of this map would be an overhaul of the models and textures - they serve their functional purpose well, but they don't look all that pretty. All in all, it's still a decent map. If you've enjoyed past versions, go ahead and give this a download, you'll also like it.
