New Jedi Academy FFA Level: The Arena Of Ankor - Brian @ 3:16 PM
File: The Arena Of Ankor
Author: zendainc
Screenshots: Screenshot 1, Screenshot 2
Description: This is really just a small map for ffa or maybe duel, first submission so don't judge me too much on it. Hopefully this will be the first in a series of Ankor maps as there is a storyline behind them. There are a few fun features like "safe-zones"/sealable areas, a few booby traps and a weapons room.

New Jedi Knight Multiplayer Level: Aquaparke - Brian @ 3:51 PM
File: Aquaparke
Author: Zojombize
Screenshots: Screenshot 1, Screenshot 2
Description: A mid sized JK multiplayer level set in a concrete park with several waterfalls flowing through. The design philosophy of this level is based around an expansive multi-tired enclave that is adjacent to a fatal drop and surrounded by several smaller passages and rooms. In order to encourage variety, the weapon placement puts emphasis on combining weaker weapons (like the storm trooper rifle) with the power boost and is designed to challenge and inconvenience those who seek out more powerful weapons (like the concussion rifle). This level is best suited to 2-6 players and requires 3d acceleration.

New Jedi Knight CTF Level: Blastside - Brian @ 1:37 PM
File: Blastside
Author: Blood Asp
Screenshots: Screenshot 1, Screenshot 2
Description: Blastside is a medium-sized, multi-tiered CTF map featuring all-new CTF gameplay cogs. This map will give JK CTF a fresh, new twist: players can now drop the enemy flag, but cannot fire while holding it. Picking up the flag now makes the carrier vulnerable, which enhances cooperation and reliance upon other team members. Be sure to look at the New Features section of the readme for instructions on how to drop/retrieve the flag.
