In two of the supplied scenarios, the 'maxplayers' setting is equal to the
pre-2.3.x limit of 30 players:
* europe-200x100-v2.sav, with 37 pre-set start positions
* hagworld-120x60-v1.2.sav, with no pre-set start positions
Now that we can have up to 126 players, perhaps these should be reviewed.
(I'm assuming that the existing scenarios with maxplayers<30 have been
carefully considered for playability, even when they have more pre-set start
positions than maxplayers.)

The huge Europe scenario (with a bit of hacking) comes out at >30000
"goodies" per player for 37 players, where create_start_positions() considers
<1500 "goodies" per player to be unacceptable; so it seems reasonable to
increase maxplayers to match the number of start positions.

hagworld, on the other hand, comes out at <5700 "goodies" per player with 30
players, so is probably best left as-is.
