Sep 22, 2016: Changed virtual particle on unit damage model.  Definitely affects emergent on omni collisions.
Sep 22, 2016: Added a new game mode, COLLECT_ITEMS.  Mission victory only requires collection of  tech and caches, not destruction of all enemies.
Sep 22, 2016: Remasterd story missions 6+ to require amp gem colletion.
Sep 22, 2016: Added checkbox to ampgems in editor to toggle required collection status. Amp Gem Factory created amp gems do not require collection for mission victory
Sep 22, 2016: Prevent multiple game event messages from a destroyed energy mine.
Sep 22, 2016: Ha... preemptively fixed the map exchange ID problem on the quick load and on end of mission restart. Curse default parameters.
Sep 22, 2016: Fixed another issue where the exchange map ID wasn't passed along and the game would be saved based on mission hash. This one was when loading a save from the panel/grid load menu prior to mission launch.
Sep 22, 2016: Fixed bug where a flip emitter would maintain the lathe for whatever side it started on, after it was flipped.

Sep 20, 2016: Added option when painting plasma to not paint under land (that is the default now).
Sep 20, 2016: Fixed issue in particle when acquiring a ship target. Could pick the wrong ship when there were enemy and player ships on the map.
Sep 19, 2016: Fixed issue on game start where synced steam stats to local stats would not stick until after a mission had been played again.
Sep 19, 2016: Fixed issue when syncing with steam stats where game would get into a loop showing the local CEO progress achievement.

Sep 19, 2016: Prevent text from flashing in ship editor panel when it first comes up.

Sep 18, 2016: Added a cover screen to the ship editor that doesn't allow interaction unless you select a ship or create one first.
Sep 18, 2016: Allow fractional camera orthographic sizes on directx9 (windows builds).
Sep 18, 2016: Don't draw gray hookup lines from enemy ports to green ship movement ghosts.
Sep 18, 2016: Fixed problem that would prevent a ship spawner or doppel spawner from creating a microtank ("relay" was in the dropdown, and would cause an exception when chosen).
Sep 18, 2016: Fixed issue with loading an exchange mission (while in mission) causing the mission ID to revert to GUID. Would cause subsequent saves to go to the wrong directory.
Sep 18, 2016: Don't show invisible indicator sprites for units that are set to not be visible in the thumbnail created during finalization.
Sep 18, 2016: Don't show translucent white boxes around prpl cores in the thumbnail created during finalization.
Sep 18, 2016: Persist unit width and height when either is not the default of 3.
Sep 18, 2016: Make starting window resolution on a fresh install be 1024x768 for any display > 1024 wide and 1024x720 for any display <= 1024.
Sep 18, 2016: Fixed issue with score submission on map with a title that has unicode characters (exchange map 3).

Sep 17, 2016: Unlock the prologue achievement after watching the prologue.
Sep 17, 2016: Flunked grade school math and forgot to compensate for non square image containers when calculating exchange thumbnail width and height. Reviewed simple division, ratios, and corrected problem.

Sep 17, 2016: Renamed ship control panel button from "Build Hull" to "Build".  Now controls, hull, modules, and command module construction.
Sep 17, 2016: Properly clean up the discharge gun on a mine when the mine is destroyed.
Sep 17, 2016: Make the IQ combobox in the ship and doppel editor pane be taller so the 'patrol' option shows without having to scroll.

Sep 16, 2016: Only allow drag selection of ships and omnis.
Sep 16, 2016: Fixed another low level discrepancy between a unit marked as enemy (or not) and marked as isGoal (or not). They are not related in some cases and related in others.
Sep 16, 2016: Make the graphics settings resolutions scroll faster when using the scroll wheel.
Sep 16, 2016: Make the "Details" button on Exchange panels be gray, green, or yellow depending on the play status of the mission.
Sep 16, 2016: Remember the page or the carousel panel in the exchange so it can be returned to when exiting a mission.

Sep 16, 2016: Don't show the exchange map rating widget unless the map has been downloaded and played.
Sep 15, 2016: Lock the orthographic size of the main camera to an even integer.  Solves the graphical line glitch problem about 90% of the way on my linux test system. It is still there at various zooms, but much less in my testing.
Sep 15, 2016: Fixed two typos in the opening conversation of story mission 12.
Sep 15, 2016: Removed press preview note, 1337 note, and green finger.
Sep 15, 2016: If particle is owned by a doppel (part of its body), then the teleport command on a particle does nothing.
Sep 15, 2016: Add an attribute to particles so they can be tagged as doppel owned.
Sep 15, 2016: Changed custom ship files to end in .dat extension rather than .spf1. Anyone with custom ships that wants to keep them will need to rename "ship_*.spf1" files to "ship_*.dat" files in the next build.  Did this for easier steam cloud support.
Sep 15, 2016: Updated minimum ship drag distance from 8 to 16.  Must move mouse further before ship ghost will start pointing to the mouse.
Sep 15, 2016: Removed particle destruction sound when the particle dies because of age or distance.
Sep 15, 2016: Increase build rate of defensive struc by 500%.
Sep 15, 2016: Make the build omni button work on mouse down rather than mouse click.
Sep 15, 2016: Prevent building an energy mine when space is occupied by an omni.
Sep 15, 2016: Don't auto advance the inception carousel after completing and exiting a mission.
Sep 15, 2016: Decreased victory music volume.
Sep 15, 2016: Moved achievement badge to center bottom of screen.
Sep 14, 2016: Make it so rock burner can't burn any land that has a unit on it that occupies the map.
Sep 14, 2016: Make it so the InfectLand call won't do anything if the cell doesn't contain land (fixes mire spawner or anything that tries to make mire in space).
Sep 14, 2016: Make all of the "missioninventory" files so that save with a .dat file extension.  Necessary for the way I have steam cloud setup.
Sep 14, 2016: Make the main game scene load asynchronously, and update the text on the loading screen.  That should complete the async loading of the heavy scenes and decrease the potential for people to think the game has locked.
Sep 14, 2016: Added cpu and os fields to osx and linux configs on steam.  Just recommendations and I put very generic stuff.
Sep 14, 2016: Turned on steam cloud stuff. 
Sep 14, 2016: Change ship build button to use pointer down rather than pointer click events.
Sep 14, 2016: Updated a slew of units to prevent multiple calls to DestroyUnit. Could cause multi-explosions, or multi-gameevents to be logged. Hope this didn't break everything on a massive scale.
Sep 14, 2016: Fixed issue where a ship with a shield would throw exceptions if hit by a stunner (MAX_AMMO went to 0 which caused a division problem when determining the scale of the shield indicator).
Sep 12, 2016: Added an asynchronous loading scene for the main menu. Shows on game start or whenever returning to the main menu. Will try this out to see how it feels.
Sep 12, 2016: When editing a prpl core, highlight the selected script that is having its input vars edited.
Sep 12, 2016: When cloning a prpl core, copy over any set input vars.
Sep 12, 2016: Added a way to set the  range and rate on an energy source created and unit destruction. Rearranged and crammed it into the existing common unit settings control.
Sep 11, 2016: Internally Published beta 16.
Sep 11, 2016: Updated the non-pulse-cannons in story mission 9 to have a lathe damage amount 100x greater than normal. Normal amount is 1/500 per frame. They need 100/500 per frame since their health is 100.  Their health is 100 so that it takes a lot of particles to damage them.
Sep 11, 2016: Added to PRPL, SetUnitLatheDamageAmt.
Sep 11, 2016: Totally reworked ship parking algorithm for maintaining original locations.
Sep 11, 2016: E = E+H, G=H, H =0. Cave will understand....
Sep 11, 2016: In prpl, setunithealth, energy, maxhealth, and maxEnergy are not allowed to be negative. For SetUnitHealth destroy unit with health is 0 if destroyUnitOnZeroHealth is set.
Sep 11, 2016: Change lathes so that they do a fixed amount of damage to a prplcore per frame.  Previously they were destroying them in a fixed TIME, not at a fixed rate.  So the health of the core didn't matter.
Sep 11, 2016: Fixed issue with finalized and mission start screenshots using an old function that wasn't as up to date as the actual screenshot function.
