As the title says, this is a complete reproduction of the first level (Training) of the parkour/free runing game Mirror's Edge. If you don't know the game, check the trailer here or the training level here. I'll name the series "The Pick's Edge", being this the first mission: the training mission. More to be described below.
I KNOW ITS A LAME NAME, but "Miner's Edge" and "Minecraft Mirror's Edge"was taken already! lol
This is only a EXPERIMENT. My goal is to make a massive all-new map series with Mirror's Edge style, lots of parkouring  and even a history line.

ATTENTION!!! This map requires Smart Moving Mod!
You can get it here. See more in "about the mod" session.

Table of Contents


About

1.1.The Map
This map was made to represent the first mission on Mirror's Edge, the Training  
grounds (also known as "New Training Grounds"). It is a faithful reproduction  
of the first mission, with the objective of complete fidelity. I tried to make  
the closest as possible to the real game, but nothing is perfect.
My real goal is to make a series of map using Smart Moving and this Texture  
Pack. This is only a trial. If you guys like it, I might do even some more.

1.2.The Texture Pack
Made by me specially for this map. It means that it could get funny-looking if you use it in normal Minecraft.
If you want me to make a texture pack that could be used in the day-by-day on Minecraft, let me know!
It was designed to look exactly like Mirror's Edge style, so I REALLY advice you to use this pack in order to make the game more realistic or at least more Mirror's Edge like.
If you are looking for a Mirror's Edge texture pack that can be used in the normal Minecraft please visit the Mirror's Edge Texture Pack texture pack wich really works with normal minecraft.
The wooden door used in this texture pack (the classic Red Door of Mirror's Edge) was made by HungerSTGF. All I did was to get it and shade it a bit on editor. If you are wondering about license, know that I did got his permission to use his texture pack's door, so there won't be any problems from there. The texture pack is inserted in the .zip with the map.

1.3.The Mod
It's called Smart Moving, made by Divisor. The mod IS required to run the game and for complete parkouring. I haven't tried the map without the mod, but I'm almost 100% certain it won't work. But don't worry, this mod is easy to install and not only for free running, you can use it to climb up some mountains on Normal Minecraft. You can get the mod on this link:

Smart Moving Mod


If you don't have any mods installed, I recommend the Standalone version, the easiest to install, but (as the name says) doesn't quite function with other mods. Of course that is NOT the only version of the mod! If you have other mods installed, use the ModLoader version. Anyways, I'm not explaining all the mod, since you can see all of it in the owner's thread. Continuing on...

1.4.What's New???

  • (10/11/2011)v1.1 - Implemented SmartMov.4.3

    Now works with Smart Moviment v4.3;
    Redwool rail replaced with iron bars;
    Fixed default controls displayed on help signs;

  • (9/11/2011)v1.0 - Official Release;


Installing

First extract all the files out of the .zip and into any other folder.

2.1.The Map

1) Open up "commands" bar (Start Bar > Commands) and type in %appdata% (with the percents). Press enter and there should pop up the .minecraft folder. There you go! You're done!
2) Open up "saves" folder.
3) Open up the folder where you put the files.
4) Drag the "Pick's Edge - New Training Grounds" folder (not files) into the saves folder.
That's it!

2.2.The Texture Pack

1) Open up your .minecraft folder.
2) Open up your files folder (where you put the files in).
3) Drag the .zip file named "JMECTexturePack" into the "texturepacks" folder on .minecraft.


Downloads

Since the texture pack was made to the map and it's not advised to use it on normal minecraft, I'm putting a single link to a pack with the texture and the map. Again, if you want me to do a single TexturePack for in-game, let me know!

Use this link if you want to support my work:
Support Download (Adf.ly)
Or use the direct download link:
Direct Download (Dropbox)
I realized I was putting direct download on adf.ly and Dropbox download on "direct download". That was COMPLETELY unintentional. I'm sorry. That has been fixed!

If you liked this map or the looks of it please hit that green +1 button other there. Gets my reputation up and helps me spread my works!

CREDITS

Last but not least, I would like to credit some people during my development:

Divisor, who made the awesome mod "Smart Moving", for letting me use his mod.

HungerSTGF, who made the texture pack Mirror's Edge Texture Pack, for letting me use his wooden door.

Budperson who makes lots and lots of skins for Minecraft, for his Faith awesome skin (you can get it here)


After playing this map, please come back to this thread and report what did you think about the map. I can take on critics, so don't hold yourself if you didn't liked the map. If you have any ideas that could implement the map or that you would like to see in the upcoming "The Pick's Edge" map.
If you have any problems in installing, downloading or even playing, post'em here that I'll help you out!
Hope you all liked it!

Hmm.  I loved the map, but I think the mod's a bit slow for mirrors edge.  Might I suggest the freerun mod?  It's much faster paced, and has Barrel rolls!  I tried this map using it, and got to the end, so it shouldn't require much (if any) remodelling.

I'll try that out. I'll get to know the mod, and maybe I'll even do a FreeRunning Version for the Freerun mod. Then if the mod is still alright, I'll do a poll about what you guys preffer: SmartMov or FreeRun Mod, because I still intend to do the Mirror's Edge Parkour Series.

This wasnt supposed to be hard. My goal was to reproduct the first mission on Mirror's Edge. If I ever do the Pick's Edge Series, I'm adding some brand new puzzles and a load more or new challenging maps.

For those who are keeping up with this thread:
I'm pretty close to summer vacations, so I should in a few months or even weeks start making the real Pick's Edge Series. Sorry for the hold up, but I was stuck with a lot of exams and student things. :D for those who waited so long, I promise I'll get something really neat. My mind is BURSTING with ideas!

Smart moving is one of the best mods ever, However it always needed a Map and a Texturepack! Thanks a lot for taking your time and developing this!

AMAZING MAP!!!  1,000,000 DIAMONDS!!!  However, I do have one suggestion.  In mirror's edge, in one part you slide down a big rope into a pad.  In your map, you climb across the tops of iron bars and then drop into water.  With this mod,

http://www.minecraft...sp-zipline-mod/

You can make ropes that are affected by gravity and you can ride down using a certain tool.  I suggest that you implement this into your map (replace the climbing iron bars with sliding down this) so that way, it'd give players a better experience with that part of the map.  (I know you did the best you could with Vanilla Smart Moving, but let's face it, that's the one part of the map that's impossible XD)

I know. I belong to the type of developers that always test their inventions before releasing to public use. I must say, that part is really challenging. I might look into that mod and see if it's applicable. Thanks for your tip and your admiration! :)

I can see it being fun to play through this parkour type a map. Me and my friend laughed at each other when we failed at the rail part where you we're supposed to try and slide it down like in mirrors edge. :P
Ever considered using matmos? You could add some ambience so we wouldn't have to listen to our own music.

I agree with the zipline mod, It would also help for some sort of tight rope.

Right now I'm modding and when I release my mod I might get back at texturing or map designin. Who knows :D. Just happy all of you enjoyed!

Here is the link for Faith's skin. i'll post it on main post later, for now have this:

http://www.worldofmi...-skin-completed

About the High Texture I might doing that but I'm so much better with low details so I don't know how the 32x32 is gonna turn out.
