Balance Mod version 1.20 in its final form is finally posted! Versus the last testing release, there have been lots of tweaks and fixes, new formations along with

fleet management and hopefully target selection. Also included will be updates to fleet and task force formations. I should be posting the update next weekend
if I can confirm at least most of the fixes are working as intended. The following update (as v1.21) will focus on AI diplomacy and some image updates (such
as new skyboxes) plus the usual fixes.
