* Introducing gang zones with capturing!
There are nearly 100 gang zones spread around the map. In the center of each one, one will find a pickup with controls. These controls are not accessible unless one is in a gang. If one is, they'll be able to capture the territory (if given permission). The controls in the center of the zone includes additional options for occupied gangs such as naming of the zone, protecting it from attack, and giving up occupancy. If a zone is unclaimed (a gang is not occupying it) it may be claimed by one's gang immediately. However, if it is occupied by another gang, a turf war will begin. A turf war lasts five minutes and is won by outnumbering attackers to defenders in the zone. If there are fewer attackers than defenders, the zone is not captured. At most, a gang can control 10 territories. For each hour a gang occupies a turf, there is a payout. The payout amount of generated based on the amount of hours the zone is occupied. Being the initial release, there may be bugs. Please report them and they will be fixed as soon as possible.
* NEW skill map: NRG Parkour, which can be accessed using /nrgparkour. I warn you, it is quite challenging! Credits to @NoType. Please see the related challenge about this.
* Fixed gang member permission to manage businesses not working.
* Fixed gangs not properly gaining revenue from businesses.
* Fixed hit sounds being played when teammates were shot.
* Fixed new gang members not showing in the /gang -> Members dialog. Affected players, please rejoin the gang.
* Another attempted fix of DM counter miscounts. More information: https://sf-se.net/forum/threads/minigames-textdraw.524/
* Add command /vcmd as a shortcut to the /cmds -> Vehicles menu.
* Include team deathmatch into the /dm menu.
* For user friendliness, the help textdraw is now shown at all times.
* Spectators will now see server objects as the spectatee does (disabled, if they do and vice versa).
