RTS: Changes, Working Multiplayer

I have been doing quite a lot of work on my RTS, I now have:

-Fog of war
-Air units, sea units, hovercraft
-Multiplayer is now working (it's using step locking system so should work well on low bandwidth networks)
-More effects, sounds effects, background music with cross fading :)
-Lots of other little changes

I also got a tablet, and did some work making the RTS, and Box Fox work on the large screen, had to do some extra rendering optimizations to make it still run well with the higher screen resolution. The RTS works quite well on the tablet, it's easy to give orders to units, and multi-touch on the tablet is really good.

Here are some screenshots from the tablet, not much action, I might try and get some videos somehow soon:
