So many years ago, during early development of the Stargate tres level series by myself and Slugger (+others), I whipped up a medium-area-sized Mayan level with a fairly robust layout of Mayan ruins from Trespasser, though incomplete in foliage coverage and other aspects. It remains one of my favorite levels.

In the time since then I have occasionally went out to make new random Mayan levels, using "MayanCity" and placing a random number after. Some of those are now lost to time. Now, this past week I saw Solo: A Star Wars Story and thought it was amazing. Felt so inspired that I watched Rogue One again and set out to build a relatively fast project Star Wars mod using machf's legendary "Dagobah" X-Wing and playing area meant to be set on the Yavin 4 moon from Episode 4. As a kid I was read a story which detailed the unusual, dark, and fascinating relics left behind by the Sith-descendents of that moon who had built the temples (the actual stone temple of Tikal is featured in the original Star Wars movie), including ancient primitive droid technology. Soooo I'm plugging all of this into "MayanCity11". 8) Stay tuned !

Very cool, and I'm SO excited to see another Star Wars-themed level in the making. I've already checked out Mayan City - it has some cool stuff, but really isn't anywhere near complete enough to be very playable.

Yeah, that sounds about right for the Yavin temples. Although I don't think I ever read of the temples being home to Sith...I seem to recall them being formerly used by an alien race known as the Massassi long before the Alliance moved in. The Great Temple is the one which the Rebel base is located inside of.

By the way...this map is a great excuse to use the CE skybox for some real neat stuff, such as the other moons of Yavin as well as the gas giant Yavin itself being visible in the sky (look at the image you posted below - Yavin dominates the sky), or even the Death Star...

Ah - and I happen to have made a simple E-11 blaster rifle a long while back as a test project. I was able to get it to unreliably fire visible blaster bolts, as well. Wonder if we'll ever see that CAnimal AT-ST I remember hearing talk of a long time ago.

It should be really easy to make one ourselves, since they're pretty simple-looking. Mostly just a fancy handle with a long rod sticking out the top.

That description sounds like the "laser swords" (what lightsabers were called around here) either Coca-Cola or Pepsi had a promo for, which could be obtained for like 5 bottle caps + $5 or so... they were nothing but a flashlight with a white semi-transparent rod attached, and a colored cellophane piece placed between both... back in 1980, I think , at the timeof the release of The Empire Strikes Back .

Of course, my dad confiscated the sword in order to discard the rod and use the flashlight...

That doesn't sound far off from the dummy swords they used as reference for the animators while filming the movie.

Well...if you're already going to Yavin IV and including X-Wings and blasters, I don't see how a lightsaber would be much of a stretch from there...

Make sure to place Yavin up in the sky, too.

I may have some other useful assets lying around...
