New Focus Upgrades in Star Traders 4X

In an effort to streamline the play and remove repetitious player tasks in mid-game and late-game Star Traders 4X, we have developed an additional type of upgrade. These upgrades are called Focuses and replace some Festivals in the tech tree.

The Focus is a special Colony Upgrade module that converts CP into bonuses for your Empire. While active, a Focus will consume a single Colony's CP points. The Colony is free to move other upgrades ahead of the Focus, however the bonuses will not be available while the Colony works on other projects.

You cannot Subsidize a Focus
Focus modules take a long time to build, and are well suited for mature worlds with complete economies and populations.

There has been a little bit of confusion about when they can be activated, so here are two images showing active and inactive, based on the Colony having other projects in the build queue.

Focus will be active next turn
Focus will not be active next turn

Heroes of Steel - Line of Sight

All ranged attacks in Heroes of Steel require a line of sight with the target.  Notably, ranged curses and buffs do not, but when it comes to missile attack spells, LoS is a requirement.

When thinking about line of sight in Heroes, you always start with the center of the attacker's tile, and a "ray" is traced to the center of the target's tile.  If this ray intersects with a tile that blocks sight, then you are unable to target the enemy.  In the example screenshot below, you can see the northern ray intersects the straight wall tile one square behind Selen.  

The southern example, now tracing to a skeleton which Kjartan just roasted, crosses over only open space and two corner tiles.  These jutting corner tiles do not block line of sight, which is a critical part of making hallways, intersections and junctions work within Heroes - and I suggest you use that to your advantage.  While the top down perspective is unable to show it, these jutting tiles slope downward and give partial visibility over their tiles.  Therefore, Kjartan could blast the southern skeleton (now gone) but not the northern (we'll leave that to Selen).
