|Attack of the Clowns (1.0) - File Description
| Tech: 7 |
Item Placement: 4
Overall Rating: 6.2
Nylad's "Attack of the Clowns" (is that Episode II?) is another first map, one which is not - I would presume - much more than a testbed or showcase for his clown sides.
The map itself (as you can imagine by its lack of mention of location even in the title) is a fairly unremarkable map. It's not too large, which is good, but it's a little "blah." It's not perfectly put-together (the tunnel in one spot could use a bit more work to look good), but I don't really think the thrust of this was the map itself.
The sides are, on the one hand, the stock Imperial sides, and on the other, a bunch of clowns. This tends towards the sort of ridiculousness that I am usually pretty dismissive of, but fortunately the author didn't just make some goofy-looking textures and then add in all sorts of unoriginal overpowered weapons. To be fair, they are overpowered a little by comparison, but they fortunately stray from the unoriginality that's usually prevalent on the sillier end of the spectrum.
Some not-overly-complicated-but still-creative odf work was done to give these Rebel clowns a number of varied weapons (which I will not hasten to list all of as the author has provided a list and descriptions in the readme). These include some silly weapons like pie-throwing, but also some funny (although ultimately irrelevant to the AI, not counting humans) uses of bacta packs as landmines.
Not overly complicated, but worth a download to check out. Give it a try.

Attack of the Clowns
Made by Nylad
Attack of the clowns is a non-canonical just-for-fun map. The clowns fight the empire with a variety of weapons fitting for clowns including mines that look exactly like health packs and of course pies. Explosive ones.
Clown Pistol (Pistol that can be charged for more damage.)
Fake Bacta Pack (Mines that look like health packs.)
AF-9 Charging rifle (Sniper Rifle that charges to fire explosive rounds.)
Stouker Concussion Rifle (As seen in Dark Forces. Automatically tracks enemies.)
Health and Ammo
Clown Special Ops
Cluster Mortars (Grenade launcher that fires multiple grenades at a time.)
Remote Explosives (Just a detpack with a different model.)
When this unit dies, it places a timebomb.
Clown Stunt Man
Balancing rod (Darthmaul's lightsaber without the ability to deflect.)
Flame Suit (Emitters on the stunt man's clothing start nearby enemies on fire.)
Sticky Bombs (pretty self-explanatory.)
Pies (where would clowns be without pies? they are also explosive.)
-If you try to cross a bridge using a vehicle, the vehicle will fall through as though it had no collision. I don't know why this happens, but it certainly is incentive to keep the vehicles off the bridge.
-Open this Self-Extracting 7-Zip archive and extract it to your GameData/Addon folder.
Many thanks to:

|I thought I was the only one with the "Bacta Tanks as Mines idea" |
At least the "Health Droid as an Auto-Turret" still hasn't been used...

|Thanks for the fair review Mav! I appreciate it. I must agree that the terrain wasn't that exciting. you should have seen this map when I started it, though. It was about twice as large and the ground was blotched with multiple colors. I'm very glad I got rid of that; It was pretty garish. |
@ #3 Haha that is a good idea.
