Wind Carrier; Demo 1.2.2

Hello all!

It seems like every time I upload a new build, the changelog is longer and filled with more important changes; and this changelog isn't any different. 

There were a couple of huge, horrible bugs that were caused by our recent shift to level streaming for the NPC civs and I am happy to report that the streaming is now working entirely as intended (as far as I know.) There could still be some odd things with it, but, from my and our play tester's testing, none have been found yet. 

A lot of big fixes happened this month, along with a fair number of new additions. We've begun transitioning some of the older assets to more permanent ones in anticipation of moving to the alpha phase of development. We've also been working on some optimizations and giving functionality to menus and the like that had been lacking previously. 

There is, however, one new bug, which is the lack of grass. I tried for about an hour before I gave up for now. I had to change some settings in the landscape material and then afterword, the grass maps no longer wanted to build. I'll have it fixed by next month (hopefully,) so no worries.

Anywho, onto the changelog!
