A rather nice weather research station at the North Pole, lots of ice, snow, isolated buildings and protozoid slimers to keep you entertained. The level layout is very well thought out, although it does seems a little short - puzzles are very good and gameplay excellent! Use your ammo sparingly.

Author Info : I`m 15 years old, live in Norway and i`m a map maker for the Starshiptroopers TC Other Levels : Leaving L.A for Duke 3d v1.5 Compound infiltration for the Platoon TC Moonbase Mayhem for Duke3d v1.4/1.5 Description : The EDF had been receiving some radio transmissions from a weather research station at the north pole. The scientists that worked there had been reporting to EDF about strange sounds at night and that some of their sled-dogs had been killed. EDF decided to send in Duke to investigate a few days after the transmissions had stopped. Now, Duke was sitting in the chopper, waiting until they got to the station. " Okay, this is how we are going to do this. " the pilot said to Duke " We`ll land about 2 miles south of the station, and from there on you`re on your own. You`ll be extracted in a mini-sub, which is located at sector H4 in your map. " " Okay, but what if..... " That was all that Duke had time to say, before the chopper started to shake. " What the hell is happening ? " " We got a computer malfunction. I think it`s because of the extreme temperature here. We`re loosing altitude. Strap on your parachute. You got to jump. " A few seconds before he hit the ground, he saw where the chopper crashed. It flew over a brick-wall and crashed on the other side. Duke knew he had to get to the crashsite and salvage the weapons before he could start kick some alien ass. Hints and tips : You have to turn on the power in the station so that you can use the doors. Proceed with caution. If not, you`ll probably end up dead. The pipebombs are not supposed to be used at enemies. Be careful where you use them. It`s VERY important that you don`t waste your ammo. When you get a shotgun, don`t use it to take out eggs or standard troopers. Save it for pigcops and such.
