[RELEASE] Der Ist Mars  "extending the mars theme in DN3D"

#1

I can't remember many Mars maps, so here's one.
Duke has crash landed somewhere on Mars and found himself nearby a small alien colony.
Those alien bastards! Seek and destroy!

is level 2 the one with the blown up building?

I can't tell the difference because of all the incredible detail, construction, and design. It's overwhelming.

Can you explain the title?
"Der Ist Mars" doesn't make any sense to me. Probably some pun that goes over my head...

Well, to me it sounds like "Dearest Mars" (since the original German phrase should be pronounced just identically, afaik) plus this phrase should mean "This is Mars" (once again, afaik). Not much of a pun, but still sth. Also:
Spoiler


Unless the real thing goes over my head as well...

P.S.: I wonder where the screenshot was taken from though. I don't quite remember such a scene in any Duke 3D map.

There is no pun, the name stands for "This Is Mars" in German.

In that case it must call "Das ist Mars" :P

I don't speak German, so I had a quick look on German wikipedia.
It says "Der Mars ist, von der Sonne aus gezählt, der vierte Planet im Sonnensystem und der äußere Nachbar der Erde. Er zählt zu den erdähnlichen (terrestrischen) Planeten", so I figured it must be "Der Ist Mars".
My mistake if the name is incorrect.

Actually, the correct phrasing, as a native speaker would put it, should be:
"Das ist der Mars", or "Dies ist der Mars".
Names of Planets are like those of rivers or ships, they always go with the article.
The first article "Das" doesn't belong to "Mars", and such doesn't inherit its grammatical gender. It's the same with English "This is Mars", but you can't see it, because articles don't express a gender in English. It really means "This (thing) is (the planet) Mars", German: "Dies (Ding) ist der (Planet) Mars".
I'm German myself, so I it didn't come to my mind the slightly wrong grammer could be a realmistake, but I thought it was a deliberate pun...

I played it and maps are very nice. Not too big, sometimes i can freely say small, with nice puzzles and really enjoyable. Only thing i disliekd a bit were that Lizard Enforcers and Newbeasts were bit overpowered, but afterall it was great mod. I liked the maps Ancient Greek and EGypt them. sorry but i forgot the name. I also liekd Alien themd maps at second half of both Episode 1 and Episode 2. Also did you used Age of Empire music in title screen midi? :D
