Here's another map from a_speck_of_dust, it's an alternate-universe Rhen Var: Citidel.
This map has a solid Citadel-esque feel. There's plenty of platforms, bridges, and the like all lego'd together. It's pretty well designed and constructed, with a few exceptions (there's two cps right by eachother, one elevated, and it's too easy to just drop grenades, mines, whatever, right down on their heads). There's some great sniping spots, where you can get up high and pick off your numerous enemies.
The level of AIs in this map is kinda ridiculous. It would already be sort of crowed with, say, the normal 32 on each side, but with near 64 (or something), it's packed. Most of the bridges get congested, and you can just pile your weapon of choice on and they'll just keep coming in to their explosive doom like hysterical lemmings.
The entire CIS side was included in the download just to get the 'Toxin Droid', the replacement for the magnaguard. It adds 100 mb to the map uncompressed, so I'd suggest to either cut it or delete all the unused skins and stuff. I did like how a_speck_of_dust took advantage of the fact you can relocalize (rename) everything and not add to the file size, and has made everything have 'better' names.
There's not much more to say about this. If you like the 'Citadel' style of play, this is a great keeper. If you're not a particular fan, there's not much else to keep you interested.
Here is Rhen Var: Monastery. It is my most fun map yet. It's extremely awsome! With its complex system of bridges and variety of battle locations to satisfy any type of player, it never gets boring... ever. This is the standard Rhen Var level for all SWBF gamers. I think all who download will find it to be worth it in every respect. Map completely by a_speck_of_dust.I didn't fancy up the sides like Majin Revan or Yankfan, but I did add the "toxin Droid" and I localized. I personally don't like editing the sides too much because it takes away from the feeling of SWBFII.
