#FTG version 1.2

# New features
Claims become national provinces if owned according to _PROV_CLAIM_TO_NATIONAL_MONTHS_ in the defines
Countries formed by event or revolt, using revolt.txt, only get real cores on the provinces listed as minimum, and get "claims" cores on the ones listed as extra

Added runbackground = yes/no option in settings.txt to allow running while minimized
Added Badboy wars and Civil wars as options
Added fugger cheat for inflation set to 0
Added location column to leaders page in ledger
Units with a leader will now have their size drawn in a different color

Fire, morale, and shock indicators on both maintenance screens now have rollovers with exact values.
The morale rollover in the unit screen now gives the exact value and the maximum.
The rollovers for the owner and controller shields in the province info window now tell how long the province has been owned or controlled by that country.
Added new define: PROV_MIN_DEFECT_MONTHS.
Added someof trigger. Syntax: someof = { number = <number of children which must evaluate true> <child triggers> }
