This release brings new UI features, further sea balance tweaks, and a lot of bugfixes.

Balance

Some sea units have had their roles further defined, Sonar ranges were increased, and a few units became more reliable:

Raven: cannot target planes anymore.

Duck:

* Torpedo Range 120 -> 150

Skeeter:

* Turn rate 698 -> 740
* Sonar 300 -> 350

Conch:

* Sonar 250 -> 400

Hunter: hits more reliably.

* Projectile speed 160 -> 400
* Increased projectile turn rate

Urchin: should be better at actual protection due to increased sonar.

* Cost 100 -> 120
* Sonar 320 -> 550 

Scallop:

* Sonar 280 -> 300
* Torpedo turnrate 3000 -> 3600 

Snake: should fire more reliably; oneshots other facs' raiders.

* Health 600 -> 375
* Turnrate 440 -> 600  
* Range 310 -> 290
* Fire arc 45' -> 180' 
* Damage 250 + 500 slow -> 350 + 700 slow
* Reloadtime 3.8 -> 7.5
* Torpedo turnrate 12000 -> 20000

Crusader: refined its role as artillery.

* Movement velocity 1.9 -> 1.7
* Range 900 -> 1000
* Projectile speed 300 -> 270

Enforcer: better at anti-unit bombardment.

* Turn rate 190 -> 210
* Range 660 -> 690
* Reload time 6 -> 5.5

Warlord:

* Cost 4000 -> 3800
* Movement velocity 2.7 -> 2.2 

Miscellaneous gameplay

* crashing planes/gunships leave full wreckage instead of debris 
* idle self-repair standarized: most standard units except Banshee, Glaive, Scythe and Kodachi now take 60s to start regenerating at 5 HP/s 
* Djinn's Lamp placement channeling obeys status effects
* Puppy leaves no wreckage 
* nuclear missiles no longer collide with features (eg. wreckage or trees)
* sea units' tactical AI improved

Trainer Comms

There are new Trainer commanders available for selection, meant to help newbies get familiar with custom commanders. They're available for everyone in addition to their own custom commanders in the new selection menu.

UI

Economy Panel

The new Economy Panel is now available. It is an alternative to the classic resource bars that puts focus on the resource flow. Make sure to try it out!

* Facpanel has drag'n'drop like integral
* added pause/unpause messages to ProConsole chat 
* incomplete Protectors' coverage is shown with a washed out teal circle instead of a white one
