Game_Jedi's "Swoop Racin'..." map is a look at a rarely-used concept in SWBF2 - racing.
It's basically a bunch of mountains making a track through canyons, with no real end in sight. There is a "finish line," but it's not marked as such - I only recognized it because I passed through a one-way barrier back onto an earlier section of the track (and because I used Freecam to follow through the course). It's not a bad idea, but it needs a lot of work. Everything looks pretty much the same, so one turn feels the same as the next feels the same as the next (...ad infinitum). There's no real presence of a marker or anything to let you know how you're doing - I guess you could count in your head, but an ingame timer at the very least would be nice. It's also really easy to cheat (but in a map that doesn't reward you in any way for finishing, how much it's "cheating" is really an interesting question) by just jumping over cliff walls. Adding some collision in to something like this is a necessity.
Basically, to sum, it's an interesting idea, but in its present state it isn't really anything (except for some varied terrain with vehicles). Adding something to make it feel like a race or like some kind of challenge would go a long way towards making this better.
