Yepp, been there, done that. I grepped for "map" which gave me a dir 
with some data for the AI. I should've taken a closer look. Sorry 
for that.

I'll get some maps and have another go. I used to get my ta spring 
from where 
there is a debian repository for ta spring, mappacks, etc. Maybe you 
could persuade the author (if he isn't on-list already) to 
contribute? Just a thought.
