I was sorely dissappointed with the look of Korriban in SP. I mean, it's a burial place of the SITH, right? Shouldn't the planet look more sinister and dark, then?

I was hoping Korriban would be a hellish place where massive obsidion temples are suspended over gigantic pools of lava. Kind of like Ganon's castle in the Legend of Zelda; OOT or Mordor. The ground, instead of sand, could be volcanic rock, barren of all plant life, again like Mordor. I read in a book that nightmarish Dark-side creatures roam the planet killing any tresspassers. Would it be too much to ask to have something like that?

And then there's the sky. Personally, I didn't like the clear, blue, healthy looking sky. The sky should've been a dark, dirty gray, with black clouds swirling about. Blood red lightning would crackle down with thunder booming. High winds would sweep the landscape, creating lonely and ominous howling noises. To top it all off, the Sith spirits could talk to you. You're walking along, when suddenly a sinister voice whispers "Leave this place, Jedi," the voice seemingly coming from everywhere. You jump and whirl around...but no one's there.

So how do you envision Korriban? Did you not care for it as well, or is the game version fine for you?

Agreed, but I can't say I cared much when I was playing through the level.

I mean it's like you took a trip to Egypt, lol, but I guess the Sith couldn't find a planet with lava spewing everywhere and an atmosphere that barely sustains life.

Well they at least managed to break a stereotype lol. But if they made it all dark some people might have complained of Raven copying LEC with remaking the sith temple from MotS.
I'm not disappointed with the final level, that and I had too many cultists to worry about to admire the architecture. XD

To be honest, I would have preferred that they remade the Dromuun Kaas level from MotS. I totally agree with Neverhoodian on this. Whenever Korriban is mentioned, I always think of a dark, blasted wilderland in constant turmoil, with shattered peaks stabbing out of the ground like rotten teeth, and thunder-choked heavens spewing acidic rain.

It should have been dark and oppressive. I agree that there should have been some hideous beasts lurking around, ready to take down the unwary.

The level in MotS oozed atmosphere...whereas Korriban seemed like a walk on a pleasure-beach. I didn't feel the weight of all those dead Sith pressing down on me...

I wouldn't mind seeing Korriban retextured...and add some rain, sounds of wind howling, lightning arcing across the heavens...

I agree too, I wonder if they can implement a moving sky box with red swirly hellish clouds? That'd be so nice if they could some how add in lightning to the weather. I loved the sith temple in MotS, it was very dark and gloomy - great atomosphere.

This map (http://www.pcgamemods.com/1348/) originally designed for JK2 is THE perfect depiction of Korriban. It has falling meteors too for, how cool is that!?! :eek:

You Do realize that we are only seeing less than 1% of the entire planet, so can you really judge a whole religion's enviromental culture based on less than 1% of where they were? I mean, Look at the fanfilm Duality (don't even get me started on how some of you think the choreography sucks). They placed in on a part of Korriban that had Mountains and canyons. For all we Know, Darth Bane could have resided in a very volcanic area, like a place similar to Pompeii(sp?). So you really can't judge a place by one area.

I guess but I expected a burial site of a powerfull sith lord to be a lil' more.... eerie.

Uh, Korriban isn't even scary on Knights of the Old Republic (which looks almost exacly the same). They can't change what the planet looks like on a whim.

Someone could make a mod or something, which changed the sand on the map to black and extra scary lawa and poison sand!!!

That wouldn't be hard to do?

Why does a Sith burial place have to look scary? Just because they were evil doesn't mean they have to like ugly surroundings. Even a Sith Lord could still like to look at rainbows while conquering the minds of the fragile masses.

You've got to admire the idealistic naivety of people who assume evil and ugly go hand in hand.

Bah, if I were some evil sith lord I'd like my burial to be scary to scare all the little kids and ewoks away :p

The level itself is fine, but they should make the catacombs a bit dimmer instead of all bright and gold and glorious.

Or maybe turn some of it into a series of caverns with the coffins placed into the walls of the cave.
