Created my first map! (JK2)

I have been merely messing around with tutorials and ideas but this map was so fun to play I have decided to release it for the Quake community but ultimatly the JK community.

So yes, it only works on Quake 3 for now but once JK2 is out I will take the basic concept for a mulitplayer saber duel map.

I will post pics tommorow so you can see it.


The basic concept is this:

You saber duel over a lava pit. The floor itself is lava rock, fractured and porous, openining to the lava below. So you have to stay keen not only on your enemy but also where you are stepping. You will be able to force jump out of the lava if you fall in, though you will substain substancial damage in a fraction of a second.

I have been playing this with Quake bots and it is addictive fun (I don't even care for Quake that much just getting used to editing Quake maps in preparation of JK2).

I would like to thank Garindan for inspiring me to make Star Wars maps. Q3 editing is so simple I may for sure make that Star Wars single player game I have been wanting to make for some time.

well, i'm glad all my ranting about how cool my levels are gonna be did some good.

p.s. I'm Garindan


Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

Tonight I am going to touch up on some texturing as the level design itself is complete. I may upload it tonight if I have enough time. If not tonight it will be Friday night as I won't be home at all tommorow.

lol @ Rogue, you will always be Garindan to me! lol

Well, I may not release it until Saturday now.

I figure since the Quake community is gonna be playing this I need to add some jump pads.

I know people are gonna give me crap for making it a single room too but if it weren't those suckers wouldn't fight over the lava pit because they are too scared which was a problem I had with the bots in the original design.

This map is very fun, and I figure with a little tweaking, would be a perfect setting for a saber duel once JK2 comes out.

Thumbs up

That would indeed be a leet place for a duel.

You should make the edges of the platforms more jagged; right now they look like they've been cut. Try making the floor smaller, then cutting it into pieces (the edges of the cracks should match up).
