    map changes:
    -redid hill route pretty much completely. building is totally redone to better support its use in fighting robots and the reset route has been replaced with a deathpit (fence is now directly by train tracks and a small section of it is missing)
    -cave route got a makeover so each of the pre-existing platforms overlooking the bomb path is more easily accessible and usable. the reset route is gone and there is now a deathpit. pickups got all moved around as per usual
    -increased map length by 256 units in the split area to give more room for layout to breathe
    -rasied upgrade building by 64 units because i can
    -added platform by upgrade-choke that offers cover/height advantage, also makes bot path tigher
    -moved health/ammo by red convergence building to inside said building
    -removed full health/med ammo by the far end of the convergence
    -actually remembered to nudge the rock this time
    -fixed sentrybusters??

    anticipated map changes:
    -will likely add side route into caves to offer a flank when bots are coming at the cave exit
    -considering moving hatch area down 64 units to bring the height advantages by the convergence down somewhat (making previously mentioned side route into caves easier to implement)

    adv. popfile:
    ALL WAVES:
    -in most cases, changed "waitforallspawned" to "waitforalldead" and adjusted timings accordingly
    -in most cases, adjusted timings so giant+support subwaves generally have support entering before giants
    -some undocumented timing changes because i'm rushing
    -overall payout reduced by 600 (400 from the final wave)
    -verified all totalcount and totalcurrency values for accuracy because some were wrong

    WAVE 2:
