 If this key is present (any value), the flakes which are normally purely decorational now behave like snowflakes. When they collide with terrain, they become a part of the landscape. This significantly changes the gameplay of your theme, so use wisely. If this key is not present, the flakes are purely decorational.

 There may be several spray keys in the file, each one representing one spray object.
 The `name` is the case-sensitive name of the PNG file (without the file name suffix) of the graphics file, and `number` is the rough number of instances of this spray that may be added to the map. The number is the average number of sprays that are normally placed on a random medium-sized island. For larger and smaller landscapes, this number will be automatically scaled up or down. Please note that this number only specifies a rough goal, the actual number of created sprays may vary and you may have to play a bit with this number in order to find a good value.
