Description
Do you love playing arena? Do you love the look and feel of the African Kingdoms expansion? Are you getting a bit tired of the map looking the same every time? Look no further!

--- This is the non-random version of Diversified Arena. Choose between six random map scripts to pick your favorite arena to fight in.

--- FEATURES
- Choose between six biomes: Asian, Desert, Forest, Jungle, Savannah, Winter (Asian and Forest similar to default arena variants)
- Tries to keep most of the ordinary arena feel and gameplay, while increasing diversity in terrain, flora and fauna
- Herdable and huntable animals as well as predators picked from random pool, semi-appropriate to biome

--- CHANGES FROM ORDINARY ARENA MAP (that may affect gameplay)
- Main herd of herdable animals (sheep etc.) generated slightly closer to TC
- Main herd of huntable animals (deer etc.) set to always be 4 (4 or 3 in default arena)
- 80 % chance of a varying amount of hills spawning in arena area

--- BIOME VARIANTS (that may affect gameplay)
- Jungle has turkeys scattered around the arena and a few shallow pools with crocodiles in them. Also has more trees
- Savannah has plenty of deer, ostriches and zebras as a few shallow pools with crocodiles in them
- Asian has shallows with chance of crocodiles in them
Winter has no forage bushes, but one extra boar, two extra deer and more deer in the arena, also has a few ice patches

--- FUTURE IDEAS
- Will attempt to make a team version, but so far it seems to have problems generating the bases for more than two teams.
- If people don't like the hills, I may make a version with no terrain elevation.

--- KNOWN BUGS AND LIMITATIONS
- LUDIKRIS may work, but is not supported
- Bugs present in ordinary arena map script apply to this one as well

--- Based on "Arena for Forgotten Empires" by the FE team
