Changelog - Pre-Alpha

//// Initial Public and Backer Demos

- Fixed human spawning issues
- Adjusted ball light. Radius is larger, and the pattern from self-shadowing is accurate. Visibility distance of this effect depends on Shadows setting in options.
- Fixed player weapon rotating with mesh during movement "lean"
- Changed the way quick turning works
- Made knockdown force much more consistent
- Adjusted LOD settings for the weapon and bot meshes
- Added ambient sounds and reverb effects to all courts (no ambient sound on Ionic yet)
- Slightly delayed long shot's trail start time to better match the projectile mesh and not take up the entire screen when firing while moving in certain directions
- Added a psuedo-3D cross hair to better reflect where shots will go as a result of weapon sway penalty

- Recreated mesh again (still far from final, though)
- Adjusted sensory radius and handling (now slightly easier for bots to lose track of the ball)
- Bots stop tracking the ball while knocked down
- Maximum bot movement speed is now dependent on match intensity, and increased slightly overall
- Bots now have a "B" on their mesh instead of a number indicating their role. Role is generally matched to aggressiveness anyway, so this became redundant, and possibly confusing to new players

~ Added a ball locator to the HUD (still needs refinement)
- Player number is now indicated on the scoreboard
- Bot color is now reflected on the scoreboard
