0.4.6 - Audiovisuals and General Improvements


This build improves the game is several areas.

Menu theme
The menus are no longer quiet! Please enjoy our newest musical piece. :)

Art
We've redone environments and buildings, so that lighting feels more vibrant and tiles look less flat and more like grass. 

Ranged units
It's been too easy to kite with ranged units against melee units. This has been addressed by adding a delay that resets each time a ranged unit initiates an attack. Axeman and Spearman have also been given slightly more hitpoints to help them reach ranged units.

Another annoyance was that projectiles would not always hit moving targets, favouring zigzag movement against ranged units. This has also been addressed. Every projectile fired will now hit its target.

Toggle Villager training
This has been the most requested change since last update. You can now toggle on and off Villager training in the Tribe Centre.

Scout is back
It's now available to train at Resource Camp.

There are quite a lot of other general improvements and bug fixes as well. Check out the full change log below for more!
