==========

The new cascading UI system. As evident, the controls/hud now take up *much* less space on screen. Of course, the cost is that not all the buttons can be visible at once. A new hotkey scheme makes switching between panels pretty quick, though, so I think the change is a good one overall. (one bonus is that it opens up a good spot for extra development panels, such as the Console/Log panel shown above)

The new "minimap" system--hold space, and while you're doing so, the minimap displays full-screen. I'd like to later update it to be partially see-through, so you can see the battle in front of you, while also getting an overview of world events from the minimap overlay. (also, the icons for structures and units need to be brighter and/or larger)
