Motivation / Problem

What motivated me to develop this feature was that there was no way to tell apart rainforest land from normal land. I wanted to see how rainforest tiles were generated, but this piece of information was missing in the minimap.


This feature PR marks the small map with tiles that are rainforest land with a paleish green, when the type of small map to display is set to 'Vegetation'. It also adds a legenda named 'Rainforest Land'.

This is how it looks without PR:
rainforest on master

This is how it looks with PR:
rainforest on pr


The color I've picked to represent rainforest might not be the ideal one. There could be a better colour.

"Rainforest Land" to me is redundant - should just be "Rainforest"

That was because it may or may not contain trees.
