Release v1.4 - BIG Update!

Release v1.4 - BIG Update!

Well, this update grew somewhat! ๐Ÿ˜…
What started with a couple of minor bugfixes, ended up being another monster update!

Some highlights:

โœ… New "End" Credits screen (also accessible from the Title main menu)
โœ… Prioritised AI attack  for buildings + periodic attacks until "discovered"
โœ… Units that retreat to Repair Facility will now "auto-return" to the battlefield after being repaired
โœ… Better FOW shape (no longer square!) and HQ radar now shows better FOW detail
โœ… More improvements to overall performance and some gfx sprites

Enjoy the update & keep the spice flowing! ๐Ÿค“

Thanks a lot for the kind words! ๐Ÿ˜Š
