I was on for that, even took a few screens which I'll share tomorrow sometime. Centre of the map is now more like all the other corrupted areas, with a rainbow arched over it - at least from what I could tell without getting cluster strawberry floated.

Have been getting tired of the game as of late, but this sounds pretty damn cool. Will definitely be tinkering with it sometime tomorrow provided Smash isn't delivered early.
