Hello ladies, gents, and those of you who don't have a clue! Today I bring you a map by EGG_GUTS entitled "Naboo: Great Grass Plains." This map is obviously meant to recreate the famous battle at the end of Star Wars Episode 1. To be perfectly honest, it didn't feel much like the Battle of Naboo to me, but we'll get to that later. I'll start with a general overview of the map.

So, the map is mostly a big grass plain (what do you expect, I mean it is the Great Grass Plains) with some hills and a forest or two. The CIS starts out next to a bunch of MTTs, behind which are some of those lander ships. (Can't remember what they're called) The MTTs aren't drivable, which makes sense since they didn't really move much in the movie. However, they are usable as turrets. Of course, at the bottom of the hill the CIS starts on is the gungan spawn point, protected by the fambaa shield generators. And off to the side is a small forest, where another gungan spawn point lies, again under cover of a fambaa shield generator.

In the way of units, the CIS has the standard B1 battle droid and the droideka. Some AATs are available for your gungan-killing pleasures at the CIS spawn point. But be wary; the AAT carries a limited supplie of rockets. The hero for the CIS is OOM-9, who sports a powerful blaster pistol. (Which is missing sounds) On the gungan side is a wide array of gungans with weapons like the pike and those portable shield weapons they used in Eppisode 1. The hero for the gungan side is Jar-Jar Binks, with some type of grenade launcher as well as boomas.

So why does this not really feel like the real battle of Naboo? Well, when I think of the Battle of Naboo, I usually think of huge armies of droids and gungans clashing in a wide open plain. In this map, the number of units wasn't quite "huge," although that might have been okay, if it wasn't for the fact that the AI units tended to do a lot of sitting around doing nothing. About half of the CIS side sat around their main CP like they were roasting marshmellows over a campfire, and another group of them sat around the forest gungan command post with their AATs and spawn-killed all the gungans. Most of the rest of them went joyriding their STAPs around the gungun shield generator.

Much of the same could be said for the gungans as well. While a group of them fights the CIS who are sitting in the forest, a bunch of them sit around their other spawn points, or sometimes hop on a kaduu and make a break for the CIS base, where they will be slaughtered instantly by the relentless droidekas and battle droids awaiting them.

The choice of foliage didn't seem very Naboo Plains-ish to me; it was too dark and looked very ugly in the middle of the bright green plains. There's another foliage in the BF1 Naboo assets that is the same color as the ground texture for this map; I recommend using this other one as it would improve the aesthetic quality of the map by a lot. Go mess around with the different foliages untill you find a better one.

To sum it up: This certainly isn't the best Naboo map I've ever seen, but it's not the worst either. Give it a download if it sounds good to you, or if you're just a Naboo-fanatic. Oh, and make sure you read the readme for installation instructions and information.

Cheers, -Xavious
