The story behind these levels is that you are smuggled on board the Deathstar at the time when the Millennium Falcon was brought aboard in Episode 4, you are a spy sent from Alderan to infiltrate the Imperial "flag ship" but what you didn't know was this "flag ship" is in fact the deathstar, you are inside a container which is unloaded from a shuttle and from here you must find your way around the station and to gather as much inelegance as you can.
It is on board this station that the plans for the Deathstar 2 are found!, these plans are smuggled off of the station and used in Episode 6.
This level starts in a landing bay similar to the one seen in Return of the Jedi, and some other parts of the level resemble imperial architecture seen in the films, you may notice the blast doors, they took a bit of time to get right, including the frames.
The landing bay is influenced by the hangar used in The Return Of The Jedi that the Emperor arrives in, i added a launch rack for Tie Interceptors too.
The turbo lift cluster as seen in Episode 4 agian a little artistc license has been used here as we need to keep the player interested in what there seeing.
Possibly the worst part of building the levels was the fact that i had to build lots of corridors in order to be true to the films, but i have altered a few of them so they are more interesting to walk thru.
I try to vary the levels as much as i can but the DeathStar is quite a boring place visually, as from the films we only saw.001% of what's actually inside of it , but that's gives me plenty of room to add as much of the Star Wars universe as i can, now all six have been made i can have references to all of them in my designs.
The invisible hand was quite impressive in Episode 3 and i am going to blend some of the designs form that ship into the Deathstar, as it took 20 years to build, and many different races took part in manufacturing individual sections of the station so its possible that they will have attributes that can identify the race that built it.
The only races i will not be including in the design of the DeathStar are the Geonosians and the race from Utapau they are organic influenced and not really suited to the theme of the DeathStar, but virtually all of the others like the Kaminoans, the Techno Union, the Banking Clan, the Trade Federation and the Republic i hope to include references to.
