Massive improvements in optimization
I've decided Topside is ready to be considered a map in Beta, the first map of mine to ever get this far!

-Spawn rooms have been completely rebuilt
-> Spawns are now smaller
-> Spawns are now further left than they are right to imply a main route to spawn
-> Spawns are now higher up than before, hopefully making it obvious that the spawning players can take a direct route up or a longer route down.

-Decoration has begun on the city around the buildings atop which we fight
-> The theme is guided by 1960s brutalist london architecture.
-> A block of flats has been added right of spawn
-> A flat-top pub has been added near the center
-> Future plans include a building sit left of spawn and several more skyscrapers to cover the (currently rather boxy) skybox

-Various new decorations have been added to the courtyard outside of the spawns

-Skybox texture has been updated
Much like A13 but with a few graphical fixes
This update re-arranges some staircases, arches, and other such entities around the main route to spawn.

An issue with a visible trigger brush blocking RED from using one of their spawn exits has also been fixed.

Some graphical and QoL fixes are still necessary but Topside appears to be approaching a Beta state.
