Removed starting engineers, added starting teleport effect (like SupCom1).
Tweaked all unit colour pallets:
-UEF now always has a dark-blue-steel colour as their main colour, and their chosen team colour is their logos and stripes
-Cybran now always has a dark-red-steel colour as their main colour, and their chosen team colour is their logos and stripes
-Aeon's chosen team colour translates into a luminescent version of itself for their main colour, and a khaki-green/grey as their logos and stripes
Swapped UEF Land Range Upgrade with Veterency and set it's RP value much higher.
Swapped Aeon Land Range Upgrade with radar range and set it's RP value much higher.
Various Tweaks to Research Menu Descriptions and routes.
Fixed/Added over 25 hotkeys (please let me know if I missed anymore).
Raised fighter/fighter-bomber air-to-air damage 25%.
Major jackhammer revisions:
-now costs 20 RP
-now costs 1250m/4750e
-reduced rate of fire from every 5 seconds to every 7.5 seconds
-reduced damage per shell from 375 to 300
-added delays and energy cost (2500) to both unpacking and repacking weapon
-slowed turret's turning speed to make it harder to hit and run (as gun must turn 180 degrees if deplyed while running, taking ~7 seconds)
-swapped hunker bonus to be more armored with gun put away
-can now target air (needs testing)
-base health to 10000 (hunker takes 60% of damage so its over 20k when not in firing mode)
Air gantries now need to have a unit researched to be able to build them again (land gantries still do not).
All sheilds have been rebalanced so that it is no longer to your advantage to have them go down. From a practical standpoint this usually meant boosting their regen while lowering their restart time. This has equated gameplay wise to them being harder to take down initially, but easier to destory the previously shielded unit because it has more time until it restarts.
All ground based AA now has a minimum firing arc, meaning they can not target units that are low to the horizon. *Known issue with this is that sometimes AA will stay locked on to something it can not target, and must be retargeted to a valid target*.
TML is now free and automatically added to Aeon factories.
AA and intel station are now free and automatically added to Cybran factories.Speed reducing mega armor from 80% speed reduction and 50% damage absorb to 50% speed reduction and 66% damage absorb.
Sacrafice Heal fixed on some buildings, all healing is now 1/4 of the bulding's HP get turned into HP for added to every surrounding unit.
Reduced rate of fire but increased damage on small ground based AA unit upgrades (harvog, uef mml and tank missles).
Reduced UEF Fortified Light Artillerty rate of fire 20% (wish associated DPS loss).Tweak some routes in some upgrade trees.
Tweaked build time and RP cost of all experimental units/gantries/long range artillery/overcharges to push back end game ~5 mins and make T2 more viable.
Added Quantum Artillery Overdrive *Known issue: will reset main weapon's fire time and screw up the firing clock until your next shot fires*.
Cicada health from 20k to 12.5k.
Fixed cybran PD not firing in some cases (expecially when overdriven).
Raised UEF land factory shields to be in line with other factions.
Reduced health of eagle eye bomber 1100 to 1000.
Added Cybran ACU brain buff bonus (does not stack with proto-brain gunship bonus).
Cybran ACU Powershunt Upgrade now produces power when it is not firing its main weapon, regardless of movement or TML/AA firing status.
Lowered mass cost of uef research convertor.
Subs will now surface upon birth.
Aeon Mass extractors now have healing nanite cloud, does not stack with factories when they are upgrades (need to add visual).
Aeon ACU now has quantum energy sponge upgrade.
Cybran mass extractors are now mini-'Recycler' units.
Fixed loyalists to now auto-heal/reclaim when put on partol or attack move (need to fix visual for healing).
Lowered Rogue Nanite's view distance.
Tweaked UEF ACU nuke's targeting to not shoot landed air units (needs testing for any other mis-firings).
Healing nanite clouds now affect all units except ACU and experimentals (before only healed basic mobile land).
Cybran ACU Knockback ability now adds 35% range, costs more RP/energy.
Aeon ACU range upgrade +2rp.
Added Chrome Health Upgrade to Aeon Air.
Added Secondary and Tertiary range rings to many units.

Megalith can no longer shoot thru it's own body with it's side lasers, and now has a 30 degree blindspot with said lasers behind it.
Reduced Gunship health from 500 to 150 to account for the new ground based AA model.
Added 1 RP to cost of every faction's gunship, and 2 RP to the cost of every factions Basic Transport.
Recycler base cost from 500 to 330 (in game cost from 450 to 300 due to 10% cost reduction as prereqs).
Adjusted cost and efficiency of Aeon Land Tank Torpedoe Upgrade.
Increased build power of escape pod to make commander appear as though he is having a new body teleported back into battle by headquarters (acu takes ~4secs to build), however a scorch mark is produced that is viewable thru the fog of war as a counter to the new build power.
Added Cloaking ability to Shotjas - sometimes will not break targeting that already has them acquired, but will prevent further targeting.
Added 'Launch Artillery Shell Forward' ability to Aeon MML - will fire an Area Damage over Time artillery shell in the direction that the MML is facing ('custom' projectile; darkenoids bombs with artillery trail, scorch bomb effect on impact).
Added upgradable EMP ability to Cybran's Brackman mobile artillery.
Added Aeon ACU Capture Range upgrade - will match capture range to weapon range.
Fixed Cybran Frigate's depth charge projectiles to target properly, arc-fire and also have 'custom' look to it (sorry if the gun barrel models looks ugly doing it, looking for a modeller!).
