Balance changes.

- Cyber general: Ground Droids require 2 places in Chinook now. It prevents Chinook from having 8 flying drones around.
- Cyber general: Infantry can not build drones in the beginning, but receives this ability later, after new upgrade at 3rd rank. Thus, players can have Chinook with 4 flying drones for $4800 at 1st rank and Chinook with 8 flying drones for $6400 at 3rd rank.

- Menu button sounds changed.


- Lighting was fixed on "Homeland Alliance" map. Craters will not be blue anymore.
- "Turtledom" map removed.
- Added 3 new maps: "Lot-D", "Advantages" and "Hill Fortress". I wanted to add Tri-Pong too, but it needs to be more accurate and more detailed.
