Oh, the map is totally redesigned (it's more like COIN Patrol but with the default spawn at Rasman Airbase), so there's much less slow-travel except to the actual target town, but I see what you are saying.
I think I can implement access to the arty console without using the item, and give it to a class. Great idea!
