Leviathan Duel BASE JKA release
I know its been a really long time, but I finally released Leviathan Bridge Duel after leaving it in a finished state to finish the trailer. I figured that now I would just release it as a promo video later on for the map.
I also released the Movie Battles II version for base JKA as well... Revans Flagship is included in the download as a BONUS map.
Here is the review on JK3files by Nozyspy. Thanks for the good review!

think it one of the greatest Star Wars games ever made, so I am always
happy when a mapper has decided to use his talents to bring a location
from KotOR into our very own Jedi Academy. And what Mace brings us
here, is not one, but two maps!
Both are very similar, however, there is a big difference in what they
portray. One is the bridge of the Leviathan where you face Saul Karath,
and the other is the bridge of Darth Revan’s flagship, where Bastila
and her gang face Revan. The main difference here is the skybox, which
in both cases looks fantastic. The skybox from Revan’s flagship is my
personal favourite, Mace has done a fantastic job recreating exactly
the same kind of look that you actually see in the cut-scenes in KotOR,
including Darth Malak’s ship floating menacingly nearby.
Now lets move onto the main body of the map. These maps are available
ingame for FFA, Duel and Power Duel. The maps are an excellent size for
a good duel, since there is plenty of space for running and jumping,
and also a couple of bottomless pits.
They are also comfortably sized for a small to medium sized FFA.
As for the architecture…well all I can say is they are as close as I
think it is possible to get to a KotOR level here in JKA. They have all
the features you remember, the distinctive lights on and around the
floor (the big blue Star Forge symbol being my favourite) and
everything is to the correct scale. A nice little touch here is
breakable windows. If you choose to break them, you then get sucked out
into space! After a few moments a force field then pops up to prevent
anyone else taking an unscheduled space walk! A very interesting
feature I am sure people will use to good effect in their duels and FFA
One feature I also especially liked was the bump mapping-esqe effect on the pipes along the ceiling, a very nice touch there!
The only thing I really think could be changed with these maps… is to
add in the rest of the ship! I think that would be fantastic to explore
the whole thing. These maps are great for a duel or a small to medium
FFA, but we need more, more secrets, more places to explore!
All in all then an excellent couple of maps here. A must have for fans of Knights of the Old Republic.
So if you guys like the look of these maps, then give em’ a download, you wont be disappointed!
