NEWS: Radar Map and Targeting

Some updates! Two major elements that our old custom engine had and our new Unity project did not yet was the radar map and the fact that you could actually target your nearest enemy. The latter would highlight the enemy on your radar and reticule, show you important info on the target interface in your cockpit (what are you targeting, how far away is it from you, what is the shield and hull integraty status on it?) and allow your guided missile to track it down, too. So adapting these two features to our Unity project is what I've worked on in the past couple of days. One interesting tidbit: when we were working on our old engine we actually came up - completely by error, naturally - with a really interesting radar map style somewhere between Wing Commander™ and X-Wing™ that shares the positives of both and cuts down on the negatives. It's hard to explain exactly how it words but you'll see it in action soon.
