Issue description
The test is very helpfull, but seems to be done in a hurry and/or left unfinished. As is, imo there are some problems with it, mainly:
1) It tests for dropship, even if the mapdef does not define any (in testCountSpawnpointsForMapWithAssembly).
2) If the mapdef defines multiplayer, only the multiplayer map is loaded and evaluated. Thus some singleplayer maps will never get testet. For multiplayer it loops through all defined gametypes, but only uses the values from he last orbit (in testCountSpawnpointsForMapWithAssemblyAndAircraftAndUfo).
I tried to improve the code, but my knowledge is very limited, so if somebody could take a look and give some feedback that would be very welcome.
Oc now the test loads every map combination possible, which is a huge number (~1000). I am not absolutly sure about that, but that seems what the original intention was.
Further, I would like to use the numteam values from the aircraft and UFO defs within the test (to replace magic numbers and other stuff). If I could get a hint how this could be achieved (if at all), this would be great. Without this, the test will report a lot of non-existent problems.
