Review by Forge on 24th May 2009

A medium sized space station styled map. Duke starts out lightly armed and for a short while must confront small clusters of aliens with nothing more than a pistol. Gaining tactical advantage is fairly difficult because like most maps of this style it's made up of mainly corridors and small rooms so there's really nowhere to go and nowhere to hide. Although the map suffers from being severely linear, as you move through you'll notice that it has some depth from the architectural structures that can be seen through the view ports giving relief to that restricting and cramped atmosphere. While the detailing is average it's not a bad looking map. The good lighting and shading combination detracts from the redundant texturing you'd expect to find in a high tech map, giving it that "abandoned" ambiance. The objective is to escape the station via pod, but it's not as easy as it sounds. The aliens are lumped in clusters at key junctures; the weapon selection and amount of available ammunition makes these battles in the restricting corridors pretty difficult. To make the situation even harder there's barely any health to keep Duke alive afterward. Even though the map suffers linearity the layout is creative making the navigation somewhat enjoyable, just keep an eye on your health and bullet count.

Description           : This map is my 'oh my god I forgot how to use Build' map.
			I've been slowly regaining my Build skills, and so rather 
			than touching one of my old maps to try and finish them,
			I decided to make a small map to practice. 

			FOS Station is a space station, and might be the first in
			a series if I stop being lazy.

			Mikko Sandt, for helping a great deal with shading and

			The AMC community for putting up with my absenses, especially during
			the CPB7 construction.

Important Notes        : This map may be reproduced in its original format
			 (And by 'original format' I mean 'the unmodified
			 zipfile') in any media that now exists (the Internet, 
			 DVDs, carrier pidgeon, etched stone tablets) or will 
			 exist in the future (Infonet, IPv6 Internet, UberLazarDisk,
			 StarFleet Databanks) as long as all files are unmodified, 
			 credit is given to the original author (Supertanker), 
			 and there is no charge or fee beyond reasonable distribution
			 fees (The cost of a CD-R, bandwidth, packaging, or distribution media). 
			 Commercial use of this level (Say, in a total conversion that is 
			 'commercial' and costs well more than the cost of the distribution media)
			 is prohibited. After all, I put all the sweat into this level, not you,
			 and I am certainly not getting paid for it or for distributing it.

			 Although I'd prefer you didn't, you may use this level as a
			 base for a new level (As long as it is released under the same 
			 terms as dictated above), so long as credit is clearly given to 
			 the original author (Supertanker) for designing the base map.
