Awakening of the Rebellion 2 is something completely new compared to version 1.1, as you now get an improved techsystem which is linked to the shipyard system, story events that let you reenact famous situations from the moves, as well as a completely overhauled balancing. Videos, voiceovers, new sounds as well as particle effects let AotR 2 become the most intense StarWars experience you ever had.
A map a day keeps the designer at play! The Yaga Minor map is something special to me, as it is my first map from scratch built for galactic conquest. From paper design, to blockout, and now nearing its completion with a final art sweep this map has been my first real hard adventure into level design. The original intent behind this map is that, much like in-universe Yaga Minor, it is an Imperial fortress world with mainly lush forests and mountains as its primary terrain. With mutliple infantry and water based routes, even the mightiest of Imperial fortresses can fall to a well-executed plan. I think that the map is setting up to be a fantastic new experience for everyone and I hope it will push EaW and AotR's land combat to its highest potential.
For those of you that have been following this mod closely, you will know that this is the map featured on my Youtube channel in my series Building a Level from Scratch. I plan to do one or two more videos detailing the journey behind this level.
Enjoy the sneak peak, and as always, comments and suggestions are always encouraged and appreciated!
