- Huge Zone Patrol Overhaul! - ADACA Beta 0.14.4

This update primarily features massive improvements and changes to the Zone Patrol mode as well as a fair bit of new content! 

However, there's also been a good amount of bug fixes and polish for the Campaign and new player experience in general.

All and all, its a big one and the change log is not entirely comprehensive; a lot of changes end up getting made and then not properly recorded simply because there's so many and most are very subtle. 

In addition: I'm beginning to be able to nail down a more specific release window, likely July.

And ADACA will also very likely be joining a pretty massive itch.io bundle this June if all goes well. But more on that when I have things confirmed for myself.

Until next time!
