Here's an update to Kafah Minor from a_speck_of_dust.
A snowy forest map? It's a unique setting, and a lot of attention has been paid to it. Everyone's seen the harsh desert, the lush forest, the barren asteroid, but something as simple as putting snow in a forest makes it really stand out. Every tree has been individually placed (a nightmarish chore, to say the least), and they're all at about the right density, giving the feel of the semi-sp***** woodland.
It all comes off very nicely, textures are good, falling snow, etc.
Now, for the battle itself. There's a lot of units. I'd say a bit too many, myself, for the size of this map. They all tunnel towards the center base, and after one team takes it, it's virtually impossible to get that cp away, due to the hordes of units that continually spawn. Not that the enemy hordes don't try. The beam turrets mow down the attackers, and unless the player takes it upon themself to sneak around to one of the less-spawned-from cps, the battle stalls out there. Not to say it isn't fun in the chaos that takes place, I'd just like a bit more places for the chaos, or some result from it.
Overall, it's a very pretty map, crunching through the snow is fun, and the fighting doesn't really fail anywhere, I'd just like some more spots of contention.

-effects like snow and new explosions added
-sounds for at-st's and speeder bikes
-retextured objects such as the tree leaves (now covered in snow)
-battledroid unit added to CIS side.
-much more stunning lighting
-magnaguard is now the "toxin droid" (same weapons, but now in battledroid form -and
unlimited debuff poisoning)
-Republic Hero changed to Mace Windu
-Empire Hero changed to the Emperor
-weapons and troops named more accurately

|It's an old map. The review is old (it's by Rikino, as posted), the file is old, nothing is new here. The only reason it is reposted is because the link on the other one died, and having it redone as a file this way ensures that the download link won't expire. |

|This is easily one of my favorite maps. It's almost as if in some alternate universe the Empire took over Endor and started building control towers and bases there, and come winter time the Rebels decided now was the time to launch a massive assault. |
The battle is fun chaos. Troops are everywhere, the explosion effects are awesome, and we've got speeders zipping and walkers...uh, walking. Yet it's not one of those maps where you run 20 feet only to kill maybe one enemy troop and then get capped yourself. Rather, this map has a perfect blend of open areas, tree cover, and structures to hide behind for strategy. All in a very pretty setting in the snow covered woods.
I've played, kept, and / or deleted probably 150 maps by now and there are good maps as well as maps that are in the "Ooh, THAT one!" category. This one's in that category- one of my permanent keepers. Easy 10.

|heh can't believe I still remember this one. It was already an old map when I started out playing with mods. The chaotic battles of a_speck_of_dust and yankfan will always stay in my ADDON folder, I'd love to see a new map by them, but I doubt that's ever going to happen |
