elite ships (skaraans) now have two more special powers. One is a shield frequency scrambler, that randomly changes shield bands. The other is just like the normal
teleport, but backwards instead of forwards.
I cleaned up the elite skaraan ship brain code, so (hopefully) it uses the ship's elite abilities better and more appropriately.

made code change so there's ALWAYS a replacement fighter at SOME base

added Properties for monsters to scripting. These adjustable properties are:
speed
health
maxHealth
turnRate
age
size
skaraans launch drones more quickly, from slightly farther away. Other ships with drone launchers are similarly adjusted.
doubled arvonian fighter complements.
changed code that creates friendly stations in solo missions. This should only add more stations.
now, in most solo and coop games, a second, delayed skaraan wave will join the fight.

In artemis.ini, I added back editable torpedo values
damageTorp***, speedTorp***, turnTorp***, minutesToProduceTorp***



I'm looking forward to playing around with monsters...

I am looking forward to the new monster features, too. It should make possible a couple of peacetime mission scripts I've always wanted to write.

Every time I see an update I get giddy! Of course my wallet gets nervous too. With the DMX Editor adding RGB keyboard support, and eventually a 3.x something of Artemis coming on the horizon somewhere, the need for new laptops is looming, and my bank account is sweating! 😋

I love this game, I love the people here!
