This was crossposted with the #announcements channel on the Red Faction Community Discord.

Today, the community is announcing the Red Faction Unite 6 community level design project and map pack!

What is RFU?
Red Faction Unite is a collaborative Red Faction (1) community level design project where participants each design a level which adheres to a common theme, then all the levels are released collectively in a map pack. The first 4 incarnations of the project (RFU1 - RFU4) were in 2004 and 2005, and the fifth (RFU5) was in 2020.

Theme?! What's the theme for RFU6?
RFU6 will be aimed at Capture the Flag, and the theme is Stock Red Faction Themes.
More specifically, each map in RFU6 should meet these criteria:
- is designed for the CTF gametype
- features a visual aesthetic that fits coherently within the Red Faction universe

Additional notes:
- While there's no size requirement, levels should include enough items and spawn points to support 8+ players comfortably
- Levels must be constructed for the project, not edited versions of maps that have previously been released, nor edited versions of default Red Faction maps

What's the deadline for levels to be complete? What's the timeline for the RFU6 map pack's release?
The date before which levels must be complete and submitted for inclusion in the pack is midnight (EST) on the night of May 14, 2021.

Awesome! How do I sign up?
To sign up, first be sure you're a member of the Red Faction Community Discord. Next, visit the #announcements channel and follow the instructions to react with the map icon to the RFU6 post in that channel.
There's no deadline for signing up - as long as you sign up and submit your level prior to the May deadline.

Is there anything else I should know?
RF Game Night on May 15 will be dedicated to the RFU6 project. The map pack will be released just before the event, and all maps submitted to RFU6 will be played at the event.
