The Queen here has nothing to do with Naboo. It's simply some queendom on some lush and wealthy planet, somewhere in the universe. :) It's an "arena-like" duel map for those who suffer from claustrophobia. ;) Almost as big as the old Maje Pit hosted on many servers, there is plenty of room for a serious duel, or a training session. With it's 4 spawn points, it can also serve as a FFA arena, and wall walking is possible on all walls.
Unzip QueensPalace.pk3 under your \GameData\base folder.
One could find the windows a bit unrealistic because there is no apparent glass or forcefield to block them, only an invisible wall. This is not laziness or ignorance. It's simply that the bit of realism i would gain would be made at the expense of a big FPS reduction on slower systems, given the size and number of windows in this big room. Considering the fist purpose of this map, realism came second in my priorities here.
This map, like the first two I released, was designed with the "no force duel" public servers in mind. Althought bigger in file size than the first two, it's still way below the 1M barrier (the pk3 is 519K), to ease the in-game download. It should have a decent FPs on slow machines.
This very simple arena-like map draw most of its beauty from Justin Fisher's stunning skybox.
Raven and Lucas Arts for the game, and the GTKRadiant community for the developping tool. Justin Fisher for the amazing skybox/environment (Textures copyright 1998) seen through the windows.
The broad mapper/modder community for invaluable help and tutorials. The old Darkside gang and my present duel buddies (you know who you are) for your support and encouraging.
