This is my very first map, and I have no mapping experiences from before, so if you happen to be an evil reviewer from map-review or something, go easy on me!
The map is like an asteroid with lot's of different themes on it (Formula 1, Indiana Jones, real life etc.).
NOTE: Yeah, I read that stuff about "maintaining a consistent style throughout the map" but whatever, I like being a little different
It's kinda huge, and there are a few ships on it (I know, "JA is not a flying game", but don't fly if you don't like it...)
It supports FFA, TFFA (and JKR).
In the beginning it was supposed to be a clan map, but now when I'm done I've realised there are only 3 "clany" areas (which are all pretty well hidden) and one or two clan banners.
And I think I might have hit the world record in "secret area count", but I'm not sure...

Story: A long long time ago, on an asteroid far far away the evil Darth Ugnaught sat in his throne room and thought.
He wanted to prove the dark side was stronger than the light.
He saw only one solution. He invited his Jedi brother, Master Ugnaught.
Master Ugnaught accepted the invitation, because he wanted to prove the light side was most powerful.
They dueled. And dueled. And dueled. But no one seemed to win! After 6 days and 6 nights the brothers fell asleep.
When they woke up they both where furious! Someone simply had to win! They built a new duel room. But no one won there either.
They built more duel rooms, but no one won. After some months the asteroid was full of duel rooms and stuff.
Darth Ugnaught said to his brother: We must find some way to see who’s the greatest! Master Ugnaught agreed.
Suddenly a great idea popped up in their minds; they should race about it!
If you want the rest of the story you've gotta play the map!
