Tactical Overlay

During the long weekend, I managed to get a good amount of work in on the Untitled game.  One important change was the addition of targeted abilities (weapons) rather than just point and shoot.  These abilities will have varying firing arcs, so I wanted someway for the player to see them.  As a result we have the Tactical Overlay.

It's a checkbox down on the action bar for now.  As you can see, there are now 3 overlays.  More on the Navigation one later.  My ship is currently equipped with a Mining Laser (targeted weapon) which has a firing arc of 35 degrees.
