    A basic (?) KOTH map set on an oil rig in the middle of the ocean. And a hurricane. Also my first map. *dances*

    Dev textures are of course placeholders. Feedback welcome for both gameplay and aesthetics.

    I probably should have noted this somewhere, but you can in fact fall off of the rig and the water will kill you.

    you could rename it Hurricane, but thats probably already taken and very unorignal... You should name it after a hurricane. Like Ike or something.

    You could rename it Offshore?

    Also, map looks nice so far - keep it up! :D

    Maybe use somekind of weather station name, like Florida Automated Weather Network (FAWN)

    If Oil Rig is taken, which I am not sure about as I only know of an Oilfield, I would think about calling the map "Platform" if that is not already taken. Otherwise "Offshore" sounds good.

    Just a tip, oil rigs are usually raised from the sea with big poles., and are quite high up.

    There actually are two giant func_detail columns on the bottom, but the water level's too high to really make them visible in the screenshots. I'll be lowering it for the next release in an attempt to make them more obvious. Along with renaming it. Right now I'm leaning towards Offshore.
