GHPC version 20210505.1 patch notes

GHPC has been updated to version 20210505.1!  As always, you can find the public demo here.  Patrons can find the demo using the usual link, which will be shared again in the Patreon post for the update.

Overview

This is a minor patch, mainly focused on bug fixes and optimizations.  It does include some small new features as well, the most useful of which is the new commander override feature.  When the AI commander announces a target, you can traverse the turret toward the target using the space bar.
