This is a modified Oasis with a cheat script included, which gives Player 1 (host) certain advantages..
From the file comments listing the features:
// Unlimited building LOS - As long as you have 1 building,
// you can see the whole map!
// Archers cost 1 wood & 1 gold
// Villagers cost 1 food
// Siege weapons cost 1 wood and 1 gold
// Myth units use their special attack all the time
// Heroes move about 25% faster
// Archers get around +1 damage and +3 range
// Buildings are 96% resistant to siege weapons -- a
// ram will only do about 2 HP damage a hit!
// Villagers carry +60 food, and kill animals in 1 hit
// Town centers provide +20 Population, either 35 or 40
// total population depending on whether you have
// the fortified town centers tech or not
// Heroes do 200-2000 damage a shot to myth units, depending
// on Hero strength (Greek heroes kill all myth units in
// 1 or 2 shots)
// You get a constant stream of food and gold
// Buildings have 2X the HP
There is also a special DEATHMATCH version, which has the same features, with more! The DEATHMATCH Version makes your intial town center support the full 300 population, so there's no need to build houses or claim more TCs, and your heroes will move as fast as the LAZAR BEARS in the OCANADA cheat, I did that just for fun :)
There's a few other things which I won't reveal about this map ;) Can't give everything away (If you know how.. you can adjust your score downward in game.. so you can lower your score if it's getting too high to avoid suspicion, but I'll leave that up to you to figure out!)
Copy the contents of this zip file into your rm folder, then when selecting a map, the maps will appear as Oasis-N For the normal map, and Oasis-DEATHMATCH for the special Deathmatch version!
I think its a great idea for those who just don't feel like sitting down for 2 hours and playing a normal game. It allows for quick, fun, and satisfying smashy-smashy. I guess its more or less a "quick-play" version for when you just feel like killing something.
Ignore the guys who give low ratings (and can't speak right) and just keep on doing what you're doing. Your ideas are unique; go with them.

Very nice map. Sometimes you just want to sit back, relax and play a game with no worries. If that's what you want, this is how you get it done. Playing this map is even easier than entering cheat codes. It's definitely one for those of us who don't care that some random people online call it "lame" cuz it's a cheat map.
@Candalas - Bro, way to give it a 1 after 6 years of no comments. You totally put this map in it's 'place'. Nicely done, and pointless and disrespectful of people who mod to give it a low rating just because others gave it a high one.
