Line of Sight[edit]

* Reduced air LOS range by 33% to match LOS range.
* Any unit which fires in air LOS will be revealed (structures for 5s, units for 2.5s).

In effect, enemies are revealed in they fire within a units sight radius but were not previously visible because terrain was in the way.

The consequences are that:

* This works around the LOS calculation issue which causes tall units to be invisible to the enemy even though they can see and fire. They are still not visible until they fire but now it is possible to fight back.
* Shields and particles (such as Sumo footsteps) are no longer visible earlier than the unit itself.
* Air units are are harder to detect. Previously they could be seen 50% earlier than ground units (this was one of the purposes of air LOS). Radar and other vision is now more important for fighters and AA.
