* More Information *

v19 !!!1!:
- Fixed a severe bug in layout scaling code, that could result in broken layouts.
- Added angled jumps, wall jumps, and wall jumps where you need to wall jump to reach a platform behind a wall.
- Got rid of something I forgot to document. :P
- As a result of the new maze generation logic, old seed numbers no longer produce the same layouts.
- Secret features++
- Redid the exit switches, and added a map reset switch near the start. There are 2 new cvars: 'rjr_reset_min' and
  'rjr_exit_min' which specify the percentage (0-100) of how many players must hit the switches to reset/exit the map.
  If the cvars are 0 or not set, the default values will be used: '100' and '60' (reset and exit).
- 3 New themes.
- Remade the starting area
- Added a rocketjumping guide to the training area

- Greatly reduced amount of things in the map: from 2142 to 59 things. 
  Triggers, teleport destinations and mapspots, etc. are now spawned on the fly, and only where needed.
- Made it possible to reset to a previous checkpoint, by pressing use next to one.
- Cleaned the code somewhat, but kept the old layouts still working the same for this version.
- Partial scripted inventory reset when entering the map. This allows disabling the inventory reset dmflag, 
  while still possibly keeping some items from the last map. (Items that are removed: PlasmaRifle, GreenCard, Points).

v17: On easier skill levels, some layouts had more checkpoints than the code supported, resulting in broken checkpoints. This shouldn't happen anymore, as I increased the checkpoint limit. Implemented an awesome statistic display designed by EarthQuake, which is at the end of the map.

v16: Some huge layouts could reach the height limit on the map too early and produce rather broken flat tops. Now any map that goes past the height limit, will get scaled down to fit within the limit.

v15: New version for ZDaemon 1.09 beta. 
-The maximum grid size has been doubled; Layouts can now be as big as 32x32 cells.
-The size of each layout is randomized based on the seed. 

-Mode switch is gone, and the mode is based on the seed aswell now.
-The Grid is made of totally square sectors now; Less funny random bumps in this version.

-The theme is also based on the seed now. 
-A new 'RJSpace' theme by EarthQuake!
-There's new lighting code for the layouts, which is randomized a bit, and also based on the seed.

-change in the maze generation jump logic, now a jump might not lead you to a higher block, but a lower one.
-Due to too many changes to list, old seed values no longer produce the same layouts in this version as they did in the previous one.

v14: added a new theme with some plutonia textures. Rocket explosion thrust should now work normally in zdoom/st.

v13: added 'scaled' mode, makes shorter, more flat maps. tweaked around the thing numbers.. might reduce issues online. Added a city theme.

v12: added skill settings that affect exiting & checkpoints.

v11: fixed selecting a random theme. Added skulltag/zdoom support.  

v10: fixed flats on reconnect. Added a hexen2 theme. Placed a limit on repeated directions when carving the maze.

v9: reduced amount of things.. hopefully themes work online now.

v8: major changes in maze generation logic (As a result old seed values no longer work..). Includes diagonal steps/jumps now. A new random theme system has been added, includes a awesome theme by EarthQuake :P

v7: added training area, extra area, and two exit switches.

v6: changed checkpoints to only trigger when they're further than your latest checkpoint. Made exiting the map easier, depending on the skill level. Added armorbonuses.

v5: added checkpoints!

v4: changed some stuff... seems to work ok on lan. hopefully no problems will arise :S

v3: reduced thingcount from 1822 to 543.. hopefully this helps with the texture issue.

v2: fixed texture problem for players that connect later.

v1: this version was never released, but worked fine except for issue that has been fixed in v2.

-extra areas
-more themes
-skill settings

-more different type of jumps

other stuff:
puke 500 x  <- sets the skybox (x = 0-4)
puke 550 x  <- forces a theme (must be set before generating the layout) (x = 1-8)
puke 600 <- toggle debug display when generating the layout.

Theme numbers are:
1 - mish-mash Theme
2 - Funkflux Theme
3 - Hell Theme
4 - Iceberg Theme
5 - Island Ruins Theme
6 - Skyscraper city Theme
7 - Plutonia Theme
8 - RJSpace Theme
9 - ???
10 - ???
11 - ???

Skill levels affect how many checkpoints the map will have.

0 - I'm too young to die - Checkpoints very very often.
1 - Hey, not too rough  - Checkpoints very often.
2 - Hurt me plenty         - Checkpoints rather often.
3 - Ultra-Violence           - Checkpoints less often.
4 - Nightmare!               - Checkpoints a little rarely.

rjr_reset_min <percent> The % of the players that need to hit the reset switch for the map to reset. Default 100.
rjr_exit_min <percent> The % of the players that need to hit the exit switch for the map to exit. Default 60.
note: both switches work pretty much the same, only difference is that the reset switch is located right at the start.

in the control setup, there's a unstuck button, that will teleport you to the beginning, if you get stuck inside another player.
sv_rocket_rate <tics> (default:70) -how many tics it takes to 'regenerate' 1 rocket.
sv_rocket_limit <amount> (default:2) -how many rockets the player will get at most through 'regeneration'
