Can not give enough credits to Kessno, who was a great guy helping in the creation of this map. After I'd given up on it, he helped me fix the problems, and even finished it up (fixing errors and doing the final compile) for me. Thanks a ton!
Also hefty credits go out to Bioware, without whom I would have had no inspiration (or music) for this piece. For those of you who have never played Neverwinter Nights, seriously go out and buy it. It's old enough where it's cheap. And don't forget Neverwinter Nights 2 is coming out in a couple months!
Dump this is your gamedata/base directory within your Jedi Academy directory.
For those of you who have played the original Neverwinter Nights campaign, you may recognize the basic layout of this map. It is loosely based on the Peninsula District Prison in the city of Neverwinter, as seen in the excellent game Neverwinter Nights. It's by no means exact, but it's similar enough that I felt secure in naming it after the facility. It features two levels -- the top level contains six cells plus a main area, and the lower level contains many cells and one central room. The lower level has a very low ceiling, but the main room of the upper level has a pretty high ceiling. Just watch out for the many torches -- they hurt!

The word "bug" would be inaccurate. There are a couple of things I'm not 100% satsified with, but since this is my first (and likely last) map, I didn't construct it very efficiently in terms of caulking and such, and as a result it has a very long compile time in comparison to my other dabblings into mapping. For that reason I really don't feel like recompiling it for such rediculously tiny details, the largest being the incomplete lighting on the central brazier in the lower level. You'll see what I mean. Personally, though, I find it to be kind of minor.
While I enjoyed making this map, I've discovered mapping isn't really my thing, and as a result I probably won't be doing much more of it, if any. And no, for those interested this is not *technically* my "first map" -- I know the rules on not submitting those ;).
You may not redistribute this file or any material contained within it any form without my express permission. If permission is given, this read-me must be included. It's not like I bite, so don't be afraid to ask. I'm not going to say 'no' unless your mod is a complete disgrace to the world, and there aren't many of those out there ;)
