Taris Cantina (1.0) - File Description  

Hello all, I'm back again! School's out and so is my iron fist.

So this is a small cantina map based on Taris. I have not played KOTOR to date, so I don't know if this is true to the real thing or not. I can, however, critique the map itself.

I spawned in a long, tall room with a table in the center. There was a door at the end of the hallway leading to a central hub of sorts that connected the four rooms that the map consists of. Each room joins at a 90 degree angle. The rooms are fairly simple overall, but they work. Lighting was nice, coming from many smaller lights distributed around the room or across a large space near the ceiling. There is a droppable floor in one of the rooms, as well as a force field over the bar in case things get out of hand. There is also an awesome R5 droid with a drink tray. Too bad I couldn't blow it up... =p

I thought the center room was the best, overall - great use of curves and trim.

Overall it is a very basic map - there's not exactly a lot of stuff to do, but it's sufficient.

On the downside, I personally find it to be a little too basic. Well, basic isn't the word I'm looking for...perhaps simplistic fits better. The textures are mostly base JA textures, and are oversized so they are a tad grainy. For some of the textures that's all right, but for others it's not too great. Specifically I'm referring to the trim used in the room that I spawned in. The texture on the round tables probably could be changed, too.

The biggest thing that bothered me was actually the oversized everything...the furniture, the tables, the rooms to a small degree...everything is made for giants. I always prefer being able to /amsit2 in a nonsolid chair than /amsit in an oversized chair that engulfs me. wink

The music was really a meh, but really, who even listens to map music any more? It was probably the most non-cliche music that base JA had to offer so it's all right. I also noclipped around and didn't see any secrets. frown

So - somewhat simplistic, big furniture, cantina. Want a new cantina map to RP or just mess around with? Check it out. It's a pretty small download anyway.

P.S. Inyri Forge is a girl.

Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy

TITLE: Taris Cantina
E-MAIL: mats.huwendiek@freenet.de

FILENAME: TarisCantina.pk3
DATE RELEASED: 22 April 2011

CREDITS: Credits go above all to the makers of STAR WARS: KNIGHTS OF THE OLD REPUBLIC, where I've seen this place for the first time and to Inyri Forge for his great KotOR Map Objects (http://jediknight3.filefront.com/file/KotOR_Map_Objects;77747).

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: Just unzip the .pk3 and put it into your Jedi Academy/GameData/Base directory.

DESCRIPTION: Thanks for downloading my map! This is my first finished KotOR-Map made for Jedi Academy. Here we have the Upper City Cantina of the Planet Taris, taking place during the Sith Wars in ca. 4,000 BBY. It's quite a small map, there are four seperate rooms and one room in the middle of the cantina.

BUGS: No known bugs.

COMMENTS: You're of course allowed to use my textures/shaders as long as you credit me. So, I hope you'll like my map and look forward to more KotOR stuff for Jedi Academy! Good luck and have fun.

Map looks alright. Simple but it delivers what it stated in the title. Like always there can be improvements for things but either way good job, keep at it.

"Query: How does one '/amsit2'?
Statement: It does not appear to work when I attempt it in-game!
Statement: I have tried many times, with no success. Explain to me this function, and perhaps I'll reconsider roasting your squishy meat-bag flesh." HK-47

...aaaaanywhoooooo... O_o

Nice map! I'm a Kotor fan, so I'll definitely take a look at it when I get a moment! smile
