  -New features:

-Overhauled the rewards dialog offered by Commissioner Veronika to place the 3 buttons along the bottom, equally spaced, with a separate area for each resource offered

-This reward dialog no longer automatically pops up; it waits to be opened in the lower-right like a mission objective, and has a dancing green "present" icon instead of a dancing green envelope

    -Significant UI improvements to the SHIPE colony communicator: new backgrounds, new animated widgets for the current speaker, improved intro animation

-Added a gooey explosion sequence when a Creep spore attaches to a building

-Air-related structures (Intakes and Filters) now improve air quality more significantly after they're placed, making their effect on air quality more noticeable sooner

-Added confirmation dialog when quitting back to the main menu


  -Bug fixes:

-Fixed ambient colonists' greetings, complaints, etc being MUCH too loud due to incorrect sound attenuation settings

    -Fixed issues with loading a game that was saved with buildings that were waiting for decommision/repair/upgrade

-Increased the chance of a lightning strike causing damage to a small colony and decreased the chance of causing damage to a large one

-Shard storm shards now do roughly 50% as much damage overall, AND scale this properly with the difficulty setting or sandbox setting

-"Building lost power" notifications now cause warnings from Veronika 1/3 as quickly

-Low air quality now triggers warnings from Veronika 1/3 as quickly

-Increased the minimum time between air quality warnings by 10 sec

-Expired notifications now disappear after < 1 sec instead of sticking around in greyed-out mode and confusing people who mouse over them
