    Not the mod itself, but what do you think of some of the maps that had been made for Jailbreak? For example, I love Rob's remake of the Iron Gauntlet (CliffyB map), where the prisoners are executed by Kralls! Cool stuff.

    DavidM's Nifam wasn't great, but the windows logo death was pretty leet.
    And that one with the THX sound was a neat idea aswell.

    I was quite impressed with McLane's Basmma and Snowdog's Rune. I thought the execution methods were cool - in Basmma, the blasting volume destroying you, and in Rune, the concept of "divine light, consume thy enemies!" Sweetness. Their themes looked really good.

    Jailbreak has some of the most stylish maps out there.

    Now if Sexmachine would only learn to submit them one at a time or have the authors submit them... instead of floods of 10+ maps.

    Talaƫron for starters. Fun map to play, and a ehm.. somewhat creepy feel in the map. It's great :)

    Freya][-III (the smaller version) very nice map, and also a lot of fun to play. Nice style of execution in this level :D Same goes for talaƫron.

    Ofmiceandmen. For some reason I really like this one. Though... it's a bit easy sometimes too defend I guess...
    Depends.

    There are more though...-_-

    JB-Grudge, Mutiny and Maffia (godfather halls) aren't bad either.

    Jailbreak have some killer maps no doubt. Often there are some small things that just spoil the map though, like the blue coronas comming from orage lanters in freya-whateverversionitwas and the music in talaeron could have been a bit more subtle to make it a more erry map etc. etc.

    How about some of the execution methods - such as the light consuming the enemies in Rune, or the high-volume death in Basmma, or the Kralls in the Iron Gauntlet, or even the mini-Brutes in Orbital? Pretty cool ones I just mentioned there.

    the thx one in basmma was leet :tup:
    the kralls were much better in errr. can't remember what it was called, was an old jailbreak map from a really old version, it had lava in the middle and the jail had some nice areas where you could try to escape from the krall (It annoys me when I see a boring cube as a jail, I like to have something to do like climb around on bits of trim and stuff :p )

    Oh well about the coronas in Freya.. they don't really spoil the gameplay so...
    I could show you a screenshot from a level where someone set the corona so incredibly bright, you'd start wondering: is this guy insane?
    let me dig it up :D

    Krall punishment in gauntlet is good :D
    Eeeh.. JB-Babylon has Slith.. I HATE slith. I really HATE them. =-/

    Me too. I don't like the manta idea all that much in JB-Durante.

    ... hehee - I feel for you MassChAoS and I have some good news for you: The JB filesection of Nalicity is complete (so far) and thus this 'may' not happen again (but you'll never know) ;)

    Cool thread btw. - I like all kinds of executions where players get sliced or smashed e.g. DarkTowers, Crusher, TrainYard and so on ...

    It doesn't have Krall but Prison Sliths---but I believe you're talking about JB-Phasma. Is that it?

    Which monsters make the best executioners, do you guys think?

    To me, I think Kralls are the best at that.

    Well I've only seen the kralls and the sliths but I think the sliths were slightly more scary :tup:

    I really love the rocket-spitting Gasbags from JB-Community :)

    To me, Unreal beasts are really creepy, and in DM, CTF or DOM maps, they're unexpected, and they take me by surprise. I can expect them in JB maps. And yeah, the sliths are pretty creepy. I think it's funny that the JB version of Orbital has such tiny (yet deadly) Brutes.

    Well I've found the pic...
    imagine playing this level -_-
    Not photoshopped. Light comes from the opposite side of the level ("pretty far away")
