5-way FFA, heavily based on and inspired by Azure Rampart by zwzsg: playable area (~18.5x18.5) and bases are a bit bigger, complete map area is a lot bigger (24x24) to give more room for aircraft movement.

Metal options:
Flat metal map with option to adjust metal income to your taste with 3 settings (BA 1st level income values listed):
-Azure (as on azure rampart): radius 400, income max 2.4
-Violet (default setting): radius 250, income max 1.8
-Metal (pure metal map fun): radius 10, income 2.0
New option to switch to metal spots:
-Spots (metal spots): radius 90, income 2.2


- Added a geovent in every base
- Added map option to have metal spots instead of flat metal distribution
- Flat metal distribution less bright in metal view
- Slight income increase for "Metal" option (1.9 → 2.0)
- Modified terrain map to keep (all terrain) units from wandering into the void
- Gadget that takes care of units that nevertheless manage to do so (needs spring > 96)
→ they get thrown down and destroyed
- New minimap image
- Added normalmap
- Small changes to terrain, lightning, diffuse texture, specular and splat details
- Fixed small errors in map scripts, deleted unnecessary files

- Visual updates and fixes (diffuse and detail tex)
