(.v2 Description) : I finally found a few days in between writing my books (more to come on those soon, I hope - will keep you all posted...) to work on my maps again. For those of you familiar with the little cans of coke hidden in each one for your searching pleasure, I thought it might be fun to move the cans to new locations and re-release the maps so you can search for them again! I may do a Can-Hunt Map-Pack at some point, but I thought I'd release this one all by itself first.
There are actually TWO cans hidden in this map now - one in plain sight and just for a laugh, and the other is difficult to find unless you have your sabre ignited and are prepared to search high and low, as before...
Apart from the cans, I have rigged the walls to explode in a few more places! Other than that, the map is exactly the same as the .v1 release... apart from a tiny texture touch-up in a couple of locations...
AS EVER - I ALWAYS WELCOME SCREENSHOTS FROM PEOPLE WHO BOTHER TO FIND THE CANS...!
(.v1 Description) : This is my interpretation of the interior of the 'Tantive IV' Rebel Blockade Runner, the Corellian Corvette seen at the beginning of A New Hope and also in Revenge Of The Sith. I have tried to include every angle we see on film in both movies and also I have extended past this, to the rest of the ship, to show what it could be like.
But watch out - the Imperials have us in their sights!!
(As pointed out in v1, the ship is intentionally slightly oversize, as I first tried building it in proper proportion and the game's own camera angle means you feel like you're banging your head as you follow the player. So a slightly bigger space means that gameplay is as flawless as can be, I find. I know other mappers have found that too!)
Credits : Thanks to Andrzej Glowinski for prompting me to move the can and re-release the map. It is something I have wanted to do for a very long time, but what with my current writing schedule, I had shelved the idea indefinitely.
PLEASE DO NOT USE ANY PART OF THIS MAP WITHOUT ASKING ME FIRST - I DON'T BITE, I PROMISE...!
