* Change Log *
- added *new* map entries in single player mode for quickies
- added a new gametype "Clan Arena" (g_gametype 8) with bot support and "arena region"

- improved spawn locations in 3 terrain maps for "Max Overload"
- improved map filter in start server menu with more entries (CPM/OSP, Threewave, Rocket Arena)
- arbitrary skybox can now be shown with r_forceSkybox and r_skyboxImage as long as the level has sky
- fixed a critical bug in round based games where round never ends if player gets fragged after team wins
- added 2 render modes just for fun
NOTE: this is set by r_simpleTextures, -1:prototype mode, -2:blueprint mode
NOTE: some render settings(vertex lighting, fast sky, obb, picmip, texture intesity) are forced in these modes
NOTE: r_lineThickness and r_lineBrightness, to change the properties of border lines
NOTE: in these modes texture color is affected by the color of fastsky
* Plan *
