Major changes
- Sci-fi punks stuff:

· Now Cyberpunk and Atompunk have their own culture wonder, like Steampunk, Clockpunk, Dieselpunk or Biopunk
· Added 5 Cyberpunk buildings: Cyber Insect Lab, Insect Manipulation Lab (requires Biopunk too), Dream Simulation Center, Dream Artist, Dream Propaganda
· Added 10 Atompunk buildings: Fast Breeder Reactor, Clean Nuclear Reactor, Hi-Tech Nuclear Reactor, Medium Class Skypad Apartments, Pushbutton Automat, Videophone Network, Small Reactor Factory, High Energy Lab, Nuclear Power Complex (gives free Good (Nuclear) building), Venture Industries
· New Steampunk unit: Cloud Destroyer

- Expansion of later eras, mainly Transhuman: an expanded and reworked Modern and Transhuman tech tree, and lots of new buildings and resources to transform your empire (see details below)
- Merged Super Forts mod component:

· Added new possibilities to forts (and any improvement that acts as a city): now they can generate culture and expand your borders, can be bombarded, can upgrade without being worked (fortifying units over those), can provide the bonus under they are constructed, and the visibility they provide can be changed. And besides, the AI understands all those concepts. More info in the Super Forts thread
· Currently the three C2C fort types generate 2/turn, have 2 visibility range, can be bombarded, and need military presence to upgrade (but there isn't a defined upgrade chain yet)
· In C2C, any improvement can generate culture and have a ZOC, even when doesn't act as a city

- Added "Graphics paging" option: a method of dynamic (and auto-adaptable) processing of improvement and other over-plot stuff graphics that allows to save about 30% of RAM memory usage (with bigger maps, more RAM saving), so removes MAF errors and the need of use viewports in most cases, but at cost of a small delay when switching between map zones. This system can be activated in BUG Options screen
- Combat Mod changes:

· Added nearly all tags in use on promotions to be potentially used for UnitCombats
· Implemented a few initial uses of the CombatClass tags:
* Law Enforcement units gain a +50% combat modifier vs Criminal Units
* Mounted units gain a +25% combat modifier vs Throwing Units
* Civilian units suffer a -25% combat modifier vs Combatants

· Updated the UnitCombat and Unit help hovers to include information on the UnitCombat tags
· Added multiple pages accessed by hotkeys to the base unit hover information breakdown. This isolates our long lists of unit information into 4 different categories you can see by holding down hotkeys (Ctrl, Shift, Alt and none) and hovering over the unit in the city build lists
· Added the ability of taunt, attack cities only, ignore no-entry defense level and ignore Zone of Control to units, with their different tags for units, promotions and unit groups (not used yet, see more details in linked post)
· Activated iAssetMultiplierPercent and iPowerMultiplierPercent tags for promotions and unit groups
· The HP is now a parameter that can be defined for every unit individually, and can be modified by promotions and unit groups
