I don't know why, but I seem to review a lot of first maps here. Anyways, here we have a another first map! What a surprise. This one, called The Forgotten Forest, is based on one of the author's dreams.
The setting is a snowy forest. There's lots of Yavin trees, some Hoth trenches, and a group of Wookiee huts. The author changed the sky and ground texture, which is something a lot of first-timers don't do. The author also changed the Command Post positioning, which is usually a good thing, but in this case, makes the battle too spread out and boring, especially with the reduced unit count.
The only gamemode is Galactic Civil War Assault, which has only the four standard classes (rifle, rocket, sniper, engineer) on each side along with the faction's hero (Boba or Han) as a normal unit rather than a hero. I think a conquest mode would have worked better for this map, and vehicles would have been nice too. Just a tank or speeder for each side, since the map is somewhat large and takes a while to get from one side to another.
I don't have a whole lot more to say about this map. Read the author's description in the readme, and take a look at the screenshots, and give it a download if is sounds good.
The Forgotten Forest: This is my Dream Based map which is also my first map so if my spelling is bad hopefuly you wont think my map is. The idea came to me in a dream. i jsut finished watching harry potter and had to much surger before i fell asleep ^.^ anywho....i had this amazing dream that i was in a lush green forest of trees and the sun was shineing yet...it was snowing...like jsut when you get that first 2 minutes of snow kinda of snowing....so yeah anyways as i was walking i started to notice the reaper things from harry potter....and they were following me so i ran as fast as i could. after a bit i found a little town/camp place with a old man sitting in a chair his face was a blur (like all my dreams) yet i felt like he was my passed away great grandfather i walked up to him and woke up....sucks but yeah i decided to remake what i saw (unfortanly i have to give it a better story line and i have find anyways to make floating reapers follow you around....yet). Story line: (after episode 6) The remaining bits of the empire have hit kashyyyk with nuclear weapons and had mustered up a huge storm of snow! while in the snow a rebal trasport escorted by hansolo has crashed in a forest known to the wookiees as the forgotten forest. imperial shuttles and the falcon are the rebals only hope.also since stuck the engineers decide to study the rocks to find out the damage the imperial nukes will do. Installment:Put the XGL folder in your addon folder, if you do not have one, make one in C:/Program Files/LucasArts/Star Wars Battlefront II/GameData. Bugs i have found: my ai wont spwan fully....i get mabye 5 per team, also ai realy like rocks....runing into them that is. boundry killer thing don't work either.
