The display layers update

This update adds new tools to show different informations in regions, such as heights, ground fertility, or impassable edges as well as the ability to toggle the display of terrain heights allowing you to see the region on a flat plane.
It replaces the infamous “T” debug placeholder tool.

The display modes are available from a button located near the minimap. 
Another button allows to toggle heights on or off at any time regardless of the currently displayed layer.

Some display layers are also specific to building placement, and are auto-enabled when placing these buildings: a fertility display when placing fields, or walls display when placing palisades.

The fortification display only shows defensive structures, and also allows you to identify fortified enclosed areas (green) and inacessible areas (red): an easy way to check the validity of your fortifications!
Height map display shows elevations in shades of green, as well as impassable tile edges in red, practical to analyse valid paths in the region.
Disabling heights allows you to see the region on a flat plane, with impassable tile edges visible in red, allowing you to easily access areas normally hidden behind the relief.
Fertility layer is auto-enabled when placing fields.
When placing walls, the walls display layers hides everything else but walls. It allows you to see more clearly which tiles are occupied, and which edges the walls are actually blocking or how they connect to cliffs.
