Competitors games engines

Happy New Year everyone!
The 0.28.1 version is, despite its name, a major version.

Rent game engines

You can now make money thanks to your game engines or make them FOSS! (I'll let you find out what impact it has, you'll see how cool it is). And now you can also rent your competitors' game engines! This is the little extra that should make you happy!

Better UI (another one)

The UI has been slightly revised. Indeed with version v0.28.0, the game creation panels had been redone. To make everything consistent with the latest graphic overhaul, the rest of the game has also been revised.

Studios optimization

The v0.28.1 also brings a lot of optimization. Savegames are 50% lighter and loading them is ~25% faster. To this must be added the studios optimization. Large studios tended to be CPU intensive, so after a lot of work, even the largest studios should no longer blow your fans.
