Tusken Raid - Star Wars theme CE map

Post by nervebooger »

Name: Tusken Raid
Size: Large
Author: Slap Happy (a.k.a. NerveBooger)


A desert canyon somewhere on Tatooine with a Star Wars theme. Tusken Raider (Sand People) villages populate the grand canyon-like landscape baked dry by two suns - no place for a Jedi to be without a trusted lightsaber.

Built for up to 16 players, all gametypes supported, and well balanced with great Star Wars-like sounds:

King of the Hill: Will test your Jedi and force skills with a lightsaber, complete with Force Lunge (primary fire) and Force Push (secondary fire) to be followed up with a killing melee. The open arena will provide maximum fun. There's no aiming reticle, so use the force. Force Lunge will give you a kill opportunity, force push will save your life from an eager sith. 2 jetpacks are nearby if you feel you want to be a bounty hunter. There are no grenades to bail you out, so fight, fly or die. Team Crazy King is recommended, default is a blast.

Race: A Z-95 Starfighter, Gian V-19 Speeder or the ARC Interceptor will test your flight skills as you scream through the canyon at fast speeds. The vehicles won't fail you. (If you are special, bring a helmet). Recommended gametype setup: Free for All, 10 laps (see below for gametype setup, default not recommended)

Odd Ball: Set in a Tusken village, having the skull doesn't mean you will win. Make sure you pickup the right one, or Achmed will scream "I Kill you!" when you melee, or right before the terrorist IED levels your opponent 10 seconds later. (reduced damage so not to be noob-abused). Jango Blasters and Lightsabers will prove if you have the skill it takes to be a master.

CTF: Grab either the Galactic Empire Flag (blue) or the Rebel Alliance Flag (red) and take flight in a fast flying vehicle. All vehicles, especially the AAT and AT-ET are capable of taking you down and will defend your base adequately, but not completely. The Jango Blaster will defend you against any vehicle and is the AAT's enemy. Default CTF is a blast!

Slayer: The Jango Blaster, M24 Gaffi Rifle and 4 sniper towers and countless vantage points will keep you on your toes. It's a large map and the weapons have the range to eliminate the toughest sand worm. Default has limited vehicles but add them as you like, sniper slayer or vehicle slayer? The choice is yours . . . to be the Master, or to fall to the dark side.

I felt like young Anakin Skywalker working at the junk-yard - to scrap together enough goods from many authors - to make an enjoyable Star Wars atmosphere, parts here, combined with parts there.

very fun map but lacks scenery. It's just too plain. Other than that though its super fun to play with friends.
