Review by Kim Robinson on 2nd August 2007

The sequel to Polaris Outpost (though possibly not the one already featured here), this one is by a different author in an equally cosmic, high-tech environment. There's not much of a story behind it - more of a 'get in there and get your feet dirty' kind of level, but if that's what you're after then you're sure to be pleased with this. Level design is simplistic, though everything fits together well - like its 'predecessor' there's a two-way train and plenty of things to blow up, but stripped down it's nothing more than a key-run. Take a gander anyway.

Misc. Author Info     : I really enjoy making Duke Maps and listening to
                        all that wonderful techno/indusrial stuff (KMFDM,
                        NIN, Front Line Assembly, TKK, ATR, ect...)
Other Levels          : Gothmare
                        (some sucky ones not worth mentoining[I wish I
                        could spell])

Description           : Well, after Duke took out all the aliens all the 
                        places he carelessly nuked had to rebuilt. This is
                        the re-built polaris outpost called Polaris Outpost
                        2. Original, huh. Any you run around, kill things, 
                        say "Heh, heh, heh! What a mess!" and win. 

Additional Credits To : 3D Realms for the wonderful game, all of my 
                        play-testers, and ESECIALLY Wolf for helping me 
                        out a LOT in the fixing of glitches and skill

Notes                 : This map DOES have skill levels and I HIGHLY
                        encourage you to use them. If it's too easy on
                        the normal one, then try the next up! If you don't
                        know how to play the different skill levels, then 
                        look under "Important Notes" at the end of this
                        template. Also, when you come to the first accsec-
                        ible vents, they are not a u-turn. There is a drop
                        in the middle of them that is easily walked over if
                        you aren't going slowly. You have to go down the 
                        vent to get to the rest of the level.

Construction Time      : About a month. I stopped for a while, then went 
                         back to again. That's whay it took so long. Oh 
                         yes, if your curious, the map was officialy 
                         finished in my opinion on 2-22-98. Just in case
                         you wanted to know how old it was.
Known Bugs             : Ok, Here we go:
                          1.) The forcefields on the windows change pall-
                              ette after using the first teleporter, I  
                              couldn't use inv. forcefields because I was
                              running into too many problems.
                          2.) The transport on the right flashes or diss-
                              appears for a second when you walk on it, but
                              it doesn't hurt you anyting, so don't worry
                              about it.
                         If anyone finds more, mail me. If anyone might me
                         be able to fix any of the above, mail me.

* Where to get this MAP file *

File location          : Wherever you can find it. You can get my others 
                         by mailing me and I'll send them to you.

!Spoilers!             : This is the Spoiler section in case you are stuck
                         in the level. 
                         1.) If you can't find the yellow key card, it is
                             in the hull of the large ship outside.
                         2.) If you can't find the switch for the last
                             silver door, it's at the top of the dock-
                             ing bay by the red windows.
                         3.) Here is an easy way to take out the reactor
                             without getting hurt. After you pick up the
                             first RPG just shoot at the reactor from the 
                             way you came in. You know, after you went 
                             down the lift and down the hall and you see
                             the reactor. Just shoot at the window. Most of
                             the time it works, but sometimes it doesn't.


*Important Information*

Installation           : Just like any other duke user map. To use the 
                         skill levels, type this at the dos prompt:

                          # being the skill level, 1-4

Important Notes        : Ooga!Booga! >:-8 This level will be fairly tough
                         if you don't find all the secrets or don't take 
                         advantage of the fountain. Use the fountain! It
                         really helps.
