Hi there everyone! I am MaceMadunusus, I started modding roughly 12 years ago on a game called Star Wars: Jedi Knight Jedi Academy. I joined the Movie Battles II team in order to create many new, unique, and interactive locations as well as to update some existing levels. I am currently working on Movie Battles II's spiritual sequel Eridan Crisis.

I have done a partial mini-revamp to Jabba. This includes parts of the map which were originally planned for a JabbaV2. Many areas are also left out, as they are unfinished. So pretty much, I just put the finished changes into the current Jabba, while leaving the others for potential future updates. This is the result.

There are only a few minor visual changes, most of the changes are behind the scenes in the form of brushwork and VIS. (The map is a mess)

So, here are pictures of the visual changes. The first few pictures you will see the big room in main has a lot more cover, and is a lot less open. The second set of pictures shows the area just outside of the door to the rancor pit. Instead of the mini-cantina looking area, it is now more of a cave with flames to light it up.

Here is a list of the CURRENT changes. A few more may happen during testing, you never know.

  • Added more spawns to Rebels. There are now 32 initial spawns to prevent telefrags.
  • Added more spawns to Imperials. There are now 64 initial spawns to prevent telefrags and crashes.
  • Added 60 second delay for initial Rebel spawn change to prevent flanking right off the bat.
  • Added new new pillars to the area in main to add cover and variety.
  • Added a new room outside of rancors pit, that looks more authentic.
  • Fixed a few wallbugs
  • Fixed a few areaportals
  • Fixed the cooking area in kitchen
  • Slightly updated lighting
  • Revamped brushwork in the main area, so that it aligns to the grid, and is easier to modify for later.
  • Revamped VIS stage, less detail brushes, more efficient structurals, and hint brushes

My life has kind of taken a turn for the worst theses past few months. I have been unable to reply, and unable to fix the issue for the time being.

OH, I didn't know you were going through financial trouble. Does this mean that you will not finish things for MB2 like your maps? I know what it's like to go through things that you talk about.

I have passed my maps off to the MB devs, and they are working on getting them finished. It likely wont be up to my quality, but its the best we can do right now. They will be released though.

It isn't really financial trouble at all... its far worse if you actually think about it. I am struggling financially, but there are more important things to worry about like my mental health and stability, not going to jail, etc.

Wasn't Cloud city almost finished? to what percent to do think it is almost completed? I miss you so much though the maps the Mb2 team make is not the same without you. You will always be my favorite mapper. I wish you good luck batting your way in society and I hope you will someday come back to map again.

It was almost finished by the time this all happened. It was roughly 95% finished. Two months ago I handed it off to another developer so that they could see what they could do to finish it off. They have made progress based off the beta feedback threads, but I do not know more than that.

I really hope that I will be back soon, but I cannot guarantee anything.

So will it ever be in developement again? it seems slightly finished except for the hangar. Maybe it could be scrapped, deleting the hangar part, adding bot support, and it would be ready. Also, have you ever sent people WIP's? maybe I could test it :)

The Movie Battles Beta team already tests everything in large scale tests. Usually 24 players.

There is a possibility yes, but it is on the backburner atm
