Renders of several assets for the new maps Jundland Wastes, Dathomir Prison Break, and the Battle of Hoth

Posted by on

Hello again loyal troopers, the time has come for another update flush with the new content you've been waiting for...

Thanks Again

First off, we'd like to say one last bit of thanks for the many of you who voted for us in the 2008 Mod of the Year Awards. Without your votes and continued support, there's no way we would be where we are today. Continuing on since the end of 2008, we've been hard at work fixing bugs (most notoriously the infamous modified content error), implementing new content, improving old content, and working on new maps for your playing enjoyment.

And now, without further ado, let us get to the content....

Last time, I promise...

Our first update takes us back to the barren, seemingly lifeless deserts of Tatooine. FSDev| Krenyo has been hard at work modeling and texturing his own statics for a new map set in the Jundland Wastes. Many of you may be familiar with FSDev| Krenyo's work already. His FS debut map, Null Sensor Station, was a hit on the servers, and Jundland Wastes definitely has the potential to become a new favorite. A bit of a "tourist map", Jundland Wastes will feature several famous Star Wars locales previously unscathed by the blasters of First Strike.

Next Stop Dathomir

Some of you may remember this map from before 1.4. Unfortunately man-power and time restrictions led us to cut Dathomir from the 1.4 lineup, but it's being brought back to life for our next release. Set on the prison world of Dathomir, this map offers a completely different atmosphere than anything seen in First Strike to-date. The newest addition to the map is an entirely new prison complex modeled by FSDev| Krenyo.

We've Spotted Imperial Walkers

Last but not least, we return once more to the planet of the ice. The Battle of Hoth is by far the biggest project on the plate of every developer here at First Strike, and work continues apace. While the largest portion of the work left for Hoth will go on solely in the background, we do have a new and improved (now with more lore-accuracy!) ATAT texture to show off, made by FSDev| Yoshiboy. And of course, how could Echo Base ever be complete without a fully realized version of the Millennium Falcon residing in Hangar 7 (texture still WIP).

...in space no one can hear you board.

Re-watch the film, I thought the same at first but it's not, we made sure Krenyo built it all to scale with the model used in the movie.
