Notes: Downloading the map is recommended, the route is quite complex

Known Problems:
Sky Conductor will not work without the patch, because of the AWE water. But there is probably some textures from it already, as a result of my unsuccesful installations. At least the clear sky is not the default sky. The AWE water runs uphill as I don't know how to change the direction.
