Friday hotfix for your playing pleasure! We're still hard at work, squashing some new bugs and performance problems. This build includes a lot of fixes under the hood, and also some more obvious ones.
We'll keep on working to stomp out new and known bugs, such as problems getting back into a game after playing a match, and UI lag during big fights.
See you in game, commanders!

AI: Improved AI air platoon "not moving when they should be" detection.

Chronocam: also fixes a bug where time scrubing would alter change your playback settings (play to pause, pause to play).
Engine: Fix for crash when telling an Orbital Factory to pause during a launch.
Galactic War: Big Difficulty pass making Hard/Annihilator more difficult. Adding multiple enemies on systems farther from the start.
Galactic War: Added Hardcore difficulty where all econ rates for enemies are high, always adds an extra commander to non-boss battles.

Gameplay / Art: Metal Planet - more trench and pit pathability improvements (better on smaller planets now).
Graphics: Updating post_fxaa.fs to use FXAA 3.11 with GLSL 1.3 spec and optional gather4 optimizations for hardware that supports it. Seeing improvements of ~4x faster on some hardware for FXAA (going from 2.5ms down to 0.6ms).
Graphics: Another bug fix for SAO, another issue that NVidia drivers were glossing over (until the latest update!) and GLslang didn't catch (because it was a GLSL 4.0 class extension issue). (Update your drivers, always, folks!)

Linux: [main/Linux] Save fullscreen & display settings.
Linux: FMOD Upgrade. This fixes VO on Linux.
Linux: [main/Linux] Use SDL from steam-runtime.

UI: added keybind for acknowledge alert. default is set to 'space'.
