Update of the client, the maps and the game content


It has been too long since the last update. But that does not mean that we stood idle.

The client got a lot of bug fixes that were reported to Mantis. Also the pathfinding in the client got changed to hopefully do what you expect it to do.

The changes done to the map and the game content as usual has a list:
