This map was started by me a few years ago as a part of series of layouts. (The fact that it has rm in its name and has similar textures to my map rm5 is a coincidence, both were started at around the same time and both grew into techSoc textured maps). Last week I showed my layout and start to texturing to Nieb and the two of us worked on finishing up the details of the theme and layout. The map is set built into part of a mountain with a single entry door jammed. The remaining Ogros are left to fend for themselves amongst the limited ammo and supplies of this sandy base under a blue sky.
With the help of much play testing online, I have found that this map is well suited for teamplay of 6 players, and is also very enjoyable for insta duels. I would recommend keeping the number of players below 6, especially for insta.
Special thanks to all the people I asked for critique from on the cm|CubicMatter server, namely: Galaxie, Boxx, nopnotme, degrave, swatllama, Doko, Suicizer, Doom, Sheik, zoocata, and jangelelcary. I hope that you find that all of your criticisms have been answered sufficiently, but if not please let me know.
I view this map as a sort of upgrade to rm5 and think that it flows very well and is pleasing to play on. Please comment with all kinds of feedback, praise, concerns, or criticisms.
