Can someone make an Ewok Forest map? The ewok village map now seems unfinished and rushed through ... i really enjoy playing on it but sometimes it just makes me mad that the creator didnt give it much .... effort?

I noticed a LOT of things that could make it better:

1. Ditch the temple ... Ewoks are scrubs and live in the forest, why do they need a temple? plus their to small to build something like that.
2. Taller Trees! of various heights .. so it doesnt look like a tree farm.
3. Spiral stairs going around trees! not around pillars that seem to go miles into the sky.
4. Donut shaped platforms with trees through the middle on various heights of the tree, with rope bridges connecting to each one.
5. Brush/Grass Sorry but playin on a map that looks like the grass off of the Sims isnt that fun ...
6. An actual ewok village ... It seems all the huts are spread apart, how about making them in a tight area on the map, close together so it actually apears to be a village.
7. Water ... maybe a river or lake ... or both? Deep parts and shallow parts ... maybe one of those trap doors under the water leading to a secret room.
8. Lots of trees around the edge of the map so it doesnt look like you'll fall off.
9. The elevators are creative and really fun to duel on ... Any way you can make it look like their being lifted into the trees by ropes and not a giant pillar?
10. MORE SECRET PLACES ... you have to admit, everyone loves them.
11. Make it look like the village hasnt been abandoned and that the only thing the ewoks left behind is some chairs and a table.
12. A swamp setting .... that looks like the swamp in ENTE's PadTemple (nicely done)

Those are just some of the things i can think of that would really make this Great idea into something more.

But the one thing that TRULY would make this map THE BEST MAP in all of JK2 is if there was ewok bots that ran around healing people that are hurt ... then they would run off into the trees somewhere.

All in all, its a great map, great idea .. yet poor effort.

And i challenge all of you so called "l337" mappers to make this map better!

Bring on the ewoks!

:ewok: :D :ewok: :D :ewok: :D :ewok:

Ps: i know you hear this a lot Diesal, but thanks for the mapping tutorial, i would build this map but i cant make a box yet :( Why cant JK2 be like tribes mapping? so much easier .....(wish me luck!)

I think someone should make an Ewok village that's only in the trees--no ground at all. :)

I'm more interesting in a full-blown Kashyyyk forest, unfortunatly no PC in the world could calculate that much graphical detail...

i think all that would be sweet, but before u use those little healer ewoks, have a better ewok skin.
