IMPORTANT: This map requires DukePlus

Proof that old Duke mappers don't die, or even fade away. They just go on hiatus until they re-discover that build bug. A short, action packed industrial map where Duke must reach his ride by infiltrating a base and then the landing dock portion of a sky vessel. Well laid out and designed; finding your way around is easy, but getting through the curtains of alien defenders provides a good challenge. The author is a master of "less is better", and proves that you don't need overdone eye candy to create an immersible atmosphere. The use of Dukeplus is also on the conservative side and it's minimal usage fits right into the flow of this fast paced map. Expect lots of battles with plenty ammunition and health to help you on your way; and when the smoke clears and you're standing in piles of alien guts, you'll be left wanting more.

                        *** IMPORTANT: Read the notes below for essential  
                            gameplay information! ***                     
                        The tide of war has turned against us. We are on the  
                        defensive. The alien aggressors have conquered or  
                        infiltrated many of our facilities. Yesterday, an 
                        island near Tunesia fell to the enemy. This island 
                        houses a large teleportation device, which is vital  
                        for the coordination of our European and African 
                        But that's not all. An alien strike force have hijacked 
                        one of our troop carriers, the Athena. They have rigged 
                        the board computer for an automated course to one of    
                        our skyhook stations which is in geosynchronous orbit 
                        above the Sahara. We don't know if the enemy plans a 
                        suicide run or a genuine attack, but whatever they have
                        in store, it can't be good.
                        Your mission will be twofold:
                          1. Infiltrate the teleportation base and secure the 
                             control room. 
                          2. Activate the teleporter. We managed to sneak a 
                             virus into the maniframe which will automatically 
                             set the coordinates for the teleporter once the 
                             scanners of the base pick you up, so all you have 
                             to do is to push the button. 
                          3. Board the skiff on the teleportation field to 
                             reach the Athena. Normally we would send a full 
                             infiltration team, but all our troops are engaged 
                             elsewhere and without range, so teleporting you 
                             directly to the carrier is the only way to stop 
                             the vessel before it reaches its destination.
                          4. Destroy the carrier by setting an explosive 
                             charge in the reactor room. There should be a 
                             Skycar in the cargo bay, so use this as a means of 
                             We don't know what the aliens are up to are what 
                             they already did the ship, so we can't risk to 
                             take in the ship in one of our installations. It 
                             wouldn't be the first time that they try something 
                             funny, so sacrificing the Athena is a necessary 

                         Godspeed, soldier!

                        This map is dedicated to the PS3 game Killzone 2, which
                        gave me the original inspiration to build a hovering
                        skiff in Build...which eventually grew into this

Important Notes        : READ THIS TO FULLY ENJOY THE MAP:
                         - Keep in mind that before you board the skiff that, 
                           once you are aboard, you will immediately teleport 
                           to the Athena. Prepare for sudden enemy contact! 

                         - When you reach the reactor room of the Athena,
                           a glowing red marker on the floor will show
                           you where to position the bomb. All you have to
                           is to step on the marker, and the charges will be
                           automatically set.
