Issue description
Tested this addition to OW comprehensively on all levels, makes an excellent addition however some maps would require correcting to accomodate this new setting to multiplayer.

I'm speaking of maps which come with pre-built bases; they can provide you with buildings not available within the actual game mode. To make this work completely well would require too much work and is not worth it.

Maps that require fixing:
  • Bastard pass
  • River of the lost souls
  • Abyss
  • Football

  • Thing that needs done: If a Lab extension is not available in certain selected technology level; Don't build it but leave a basic bridge extension

    Things like factory, or power plant or bunker would not make much difference anyways, its the labs that matter. My advice - don't touch them (eg. having a factory and power plant in basic tech level would not make much difference since most you could make is tanks with machine guns). Leaving them intact would make them a more likely target for the players as well since they could not be rebuilt.
