    Galactic War Updates:
    - Tech Discovery Redesign
    --You will now be able to choose one tech from a group of three when you explore a system.
    --You will no longer be given techs that you already have as one of the three choices.
    --You will now only be given techs that you can use--IE no bot buffs without the ability to build bots.
    - Rebalanced chances to discover various techs
    - Improved AI difficulty ramping
    - Improved system difficulty ramping
    - New and improved redesigned boss fights for all factions
    - Galactic War now defaults to a system size of Medium instead of Epic
    - You now have the option to toggle "Hardcore mode" on and off when starting a new war
    --Losing a match in Hardcore Mode will end the active Galactic War, as it did in previous Galactic War iterations.
    --Losing a match outside of Hardcore Mode will allow you to load a save from before moving into the hostile system.
    - Galactic War now has two neutral stars that always spawn next to the starting point
    - The two easier difficulty Galactic Wars now use a different set of possible system templates
    --The easier system templates don't go more than a planet and a moon. They also have more metal.
    -Exiting from the GW star map takes you back to the main menu
    -The in-game menu for a normal GW now contains a surrender option instead of an abandon war button. Hardcore GW will still have the abandon war button.
    -Normal AI Difficulty Tuning
    -GW star system tuning
    -Fix to the Galactic War intro video not playing
    -When the player commander is destroyed, all remaining subcommanders will also be destroyed. This only affects GW.
    -Removed the factory wait time on relentless AI difficulty

    Gameplay changes:

    - Added music cue for the Target Planet scene
    - Units flagged as not collidable with projectiles as wreckage will no longer have the attack cursor come up on the client
    - The control group and idle unit widgets are hidden when you are spectating. Chronocam will also ignore unit alerts while you are spectating.
    - Fix for a case where a unit would stop and lose its nav move
    - Mines can now, once again, be shot by projectiles
    - Resume from here dialog will now pause the game
    - Fix for (selection/control group/idle) type indicators
    - Fix for some units failing to attack during an attack move

    AI Improvements:

    -- This helps support units that are not included in unit_list.json.

    Save game changes
    1) All saved games are now in one place. This includes GW saves.
    2) You no longer go to the GW page to continue an existing GW. That page is only for creating new GWs. Use 'the saved games' page instead.
    3) There is now a resume last saved game button from the main menu. It is basically a continue button.
    4) You can now change your commander in GW while offline.

    -- Show a placeholder "null message" for YouTube videos if we can't retrieve them.
    -- Hide the "show leaderboards" button when you're not signed in (it doesn't work.)
    -- Reduce the size of the leaderboard entries when they don't have a "view replay" button on them.

    When a planet accidentally hits the wrong planet it was suppose to smash the halley trail will stay in-game the whole time.

    Existing in-progress Galactic Wars should be unaffected. All old games are automatically considered 'hardcore' and you will only get one completely random card per system (just like you would have before this patch).

    Assisting seems to be miss behaving e.g.

    Build a laser tower tell an air fab to assist the fab that started building it and your see that the air unit will try repairing the builder even though the unit is at full health and it will get stuck and never assist in the building process

    Hmmmm I can't seem to enter GW. "Go to war" is greyed out?

    Edit: Nvm found the problem. Had to uninstall some GW related mods.

    Eh, I was hoping for a fairly large redesign of galactic war... Something more like the galactic conquest from starwars battlefront 2... Oh well.

    I think I found a lobby bug! When I try to host a game, but I make myself the spectator, the game becomes invisible if there are no players in it. I was trying to host a modded game. Not sure if that makes a difference.

    I played a battle in my current noob GW and I lost (against Normal... don't talk about it), rewound the game to where I dun goofed up and proceeded to destroy Xenosentry... only to return to the war to find that it doesn't think that the battle ever even happened. If it's intentional, it seems a tad silly, so I imagine it's not!

    It is not intentional. I will investigate.
