2/11/16 Update - New map draw and room movement system

This is a 21x21 (bigmap preference) map using a new perlin based system for room icons and biomes.  It draws 4 times as fast as the old maps and looks a little cooler.  Icons subject to change!  In addition, the map drawing code was refactored to omit drawing ansi characters for blind users, or users with ANSI off, eliminating the potential for a map draw to time out.

We also moved to a single room movement system (thanks to a lot of help from the hellmoo admins), meaning we should be able to support much larger universes.  There is still a fair amount to do and we'll post updates as some of the new/overhauled features are completed!
