New Map: cs_mercado

I'd like to start by thanking everyone that helped with beta testing this. It took over 8 beta tests to make it the way I wanted it and a lot of patience from the testers too :D

The map is a supermarket located in Costa Rica where I used to live for a part of my life, hence the poverty ambiance that's in this project. It's a fairly medium sized map, that reminds me a bit to the good ol' cs_assault in CS 1.6. Both teams have fair starts and no team has advantage over the other.

After crawling tesiting user-made maps, I just wasn't satisfied enough with the quality that was involved in them *bangs head on the screen*... Most of the maps totally lacked of concept in them; some were unplayable, not fun, others just plain ugly to even look at.

I may not be the best maper out there, but at least I've contributed to the community with a decent map that I think a lot of people will enjoy. The testers had a great time in it, so did I...

As a final note, I'll be teaming with some highly competent concept ideators on a next upcoming project. The map will be much bigger than this one. But that's another story...
