Update: Version 1.0.1
Change log:

Balance pass on rad towns to make them less untouchable for respirators (military bases still require hazmat+ and rad medication).  Radiation sources should now be fully intuitive, affected by the density of--as well as the proximity to--radioactive barrels.
Introduced stronger mobs to the military camps near the Pragmium Queen pit to reduce early game access.

Have a few additions in the making inspired by MightyMonte88's work.  Keep posted for updates!

Update: Version 1.0.2
Change log:

Added 2x new rad towns-- Raider scavenger camps.  These camps are more open and aired, free of creatures and light on radiation exposure.  They allow for an introduction to ruins-style raiding and are respirator friendly.
Reduced the amount of creatures in residential rad towns.
Reduced the amount of loot at military outposts near the Pragmium Queen pit.
Further restricted the proximity of building near rad towns.
Minor adjustments to roads.

Resource regeneration is affected server-side.  The map does not change that :)

You can change the rates by altering the scripts on your end, thus making a separate mod.

As for the crates, I wanted there to be lots of them.  The idea is that since most zones are low hostility and accessible from the start, there is little reason to visit rad towns on a normal playthrough considering the tech prerequisites, LP, ammo, armor, and medical item investments as well as the risk of running into other players while being vulnerable due to inherent status effects and medical cooldown.  Having a higher crate count actually makes ruins raiding advantageous to normal farming, but of course the more reward, the greater the risk and investment with the more challenging ruins capable of spawning considerable amounts of mobs and having lengthy and severe radiation exposure. 

Let's not forget that the map is small and intended to host a healthy amount of players to drive competition (and therefore contest) with the larger resource zones.  Resources in some areas may seem exaggerated if you are playing solo/offline.

You can try manually swapping the World.map file inside the savegame file (it's a ZIP archive). But we've never tried it so use at your risk.
We will consider adding support for map replacement in the upcoming A29 Update.

Hello,
I am not sure if this is where I would write this but I have come across something interesting.  My base has a Prag. tower that spawns beside it. When I gather the tower the blast takes out half my base..... I have never had that happen before. i am playing on the limited server my base position is 848   506.

@Khaos, the pragmium spire will never spawn so close to any player base that it will damage it during an explosion.
Could it be the case that you've built a base close to a pragmium spire and just didn't notice that until late? The game does allow that currently though we never heard about this problem from players on the official servers.

Regards!

it was not there when I built the base. It apperars on higher ground just outside my base and a beetle sits just outside my wall trying to get at my through it.
I was able to destroy the tower once and that is when my base was damaged. Mind you I did only have wooden walls.  I have a screen shot of the tower appearing in the spot again. I just do not know how to post it.

The number of beetles and crystals around the spire is not how it should be in the vanilla version of the game. I guess there are mods installed on the server. There could be other changes made that lead to this problem.
Original source code for the check to prevent spawning pragmium too close to player bases is here https://github.com/AtomicTorchStudio/CryoFall/blob/4a652eb58121d9ff37711e2ee7323c6cae94d09c/Core.cpk/Scripts/Zones/Scripts/Resources/SpawnResourcePragmium.cs#L53 I'm certain it works fine as we never heard about this issue on the official servers.

Regards!
