* Added a new gold mechanic to the game

"Reliable Gold" - Any bounty you get from hero kills or from the extra "aoe kill gold" bonus (feature from few patches ago) is added to your Reliable Gold pool.

"Unreliable Gold" - It is everything else (creep kills, neutrals, etc).

Dying can only take away gold from your Unreliable Gold pool and not from your Reliable Gold. Buying items uses up your Unreliable Gold first before using your Reliable Gold.

An example: You have 910 total gold (500 Unreliable, 410 Reliable). If you buy Boots of Speed, you'll have 410 total gold left (0 Unreliable, 410 Reliable). However, if you bought Chainmail, you would have 360 Reliable Gold left.

The process is seamless to the user, you won't have to do anything extra to make it work. Your total gold is still displayed in the same place. Your Reliable Gold is displayed in your scoreboard title.

This is a new experimental idea that may be adjusted and tweaked over time depending on feedback and results after it is released. As always, let me know anything you want to see in future versions.

Buyback uses reliable gold first. There are some other plans and ideas for buyback adjustments in the future but I would like to see these changes stabilize first before considering further stuff. There may also be some other changes related to the aoe bounty in the future but I want to take it slow one step at a time and see how this change is reflected in games first.

* Support gold bounty gained for kills is now displayed ontop of each hero (not a change to bounty, but revealing the "extra" area bounty that was added a few patches ago, 16775)
* Minor adjustment (+50) to the extra aoe XP bounty
* Lane creeps vision from 1400/800 to 1100/800
* Day-Night now cycles at 25% faster rate
* The autozoom restore function in -zm is increased to give extra time to temporarily zoom in
* Game now displays a message to your allies if you buy back
* Added a -ub (-Unban) game mode to override the default -cm changed hero restrictions. You use this in combination with cm, -ubcm

Game Modes

* Reworked the -CM Ban and Picks process

Instead of 4 bans and then 5 picks, now it is 3 bans and then 3 picks followed by 2 bans and 2 picks.

Old CM:
Summary: 4 bans then 5 picks.

Ban Phase: Each team bans 4 heroes. 40 Seconds for each step.
Process: 1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1

Pick Phase: Each team then picks 5 heroes. 60 Seconds for each step.
Process: 1-2-2-2-2-1

60 seconds of extra time is provided in each team's time bank.

New CM:
Summary: 3 bans then 3 picks then 2 bans then 2 picks.

Ban Phase #1: Each team bans 3 heroes. 30 seconds for each step
Process: 1-1-1-1-1-1

Pick Phase #1: Each team then picks 3 heroes. 50 seconds for each step.
Process: 1-2-2-1

Ban Phase #2: Each team then bans 2 heroes. 50 seconds for each step
Process: 1-1-1-1

Ban Phase #2: Each team then picks 2 heroes. 50 seconds for each step
Process: 1-1-1-1

90 seconds of extra time is provided in each team's time bank.

About Icarus, The Phoenix

I had mentioned a Phoenix hero was in the works in the past. I've decided to save the hero for DotA 6.69 instead of putting him in this one. I want to work on him more.

ok, about the "Reliable Gold" not sure about the 6.68b, but in 6.68 (very posible that its same in 6.68b) the "Reliable Gold" doesn't work:

An example: You have 910 total gold (500 Unreliable, 410 Reliable). If you buy Boots of Speed, you'll have 410 total gold left (0 Unreliable, 410 Reliable). However, if you bought Chainmail, you would have 360 Reliable Gold left.

NOO.. if you tried to buy Chainmail it will show you the message: Not enough Gold. !!!

I endup with gondar with 3000+"Reliable Gold" and couldnt buy a damn thing, so we lost (pub game).

So fix it in the upcoming map!

Glad the new version got released just in time to test out my new gaming rig (i7-980X, 16GB DDR3-1666, 5970x2). I wonder if it is possible to force anti-aliasing beyond 8x for this game.
