Starting college is always fun. Knock yourself out, you'll only do it once.

Your architecture looks very impressive, some especially good integration of patch meshes into the map. However, I think this map is crying out for custom textures, or at least less repeating textures.

Argh! This looks so nice, but it only reminds me how much I hate the fact that the jk2sp.exe graphics engine is a little more polished than the one for jk2mp.exe...

Definitely. It's so much more "smooth" in lighting and such.

I believe he is using custom textures throughout the level.

That can be changed. ; )

Tee-hee, TL... the thing that is aggrivating to me is that jk2sp.exe can take a map with a small, doesn't-hurt-my-framerate lightmap and smooth it out to the point of beauty, where jk2mp.exe can't. To get SP looks out of MP, you have to _lightmapscale the whole thing so far that the lightmap actually becomes a hit on your fps. Lame!

that model looks beautiful, but more textures would probably help it look better

Textures are fine. That's not the entire level, you know.

Nar Shaddaa is also very dull. Unlike Raven's silly one in JO with all those stupid colored lights.

Yea I agree. It's supposed to be dark, dirty, and dingy.

What a fantastic looking level, it really catches the essence of Star Wars, which is something I have yet to see in a fan made level.

Thumbs up Impressive. Most impressive.

Cool level, regardless of the lack of dinginess.

I guess Nar Shaddaa should've looked like the interior of Reelos garbage-collection depot, but oh well. I think Raven did a good job on JK2, and I'm looking forward to Jedi Academy.

Keep up the good work, Sine Nomen.
