LOGistICAL 2: Update #653

Build #653 on LOGistICAL 2
- Fixed problem with upgrading roads to industries
- Fixed problem when trying to sell a truck
- Stopped L1 modules from loading from the globe until I get them working properly.

Build #650 on LOGistICAL 2
- Added button for upgrading roads with mouseover help on truck dash for L2 modules
- Added button for sending trucks back to depot with mouseover help next to skip, cancel and sell truck
- Restructure of startup globe for L2 games
- Use of high-score table data to populate the globe (numbers may be slightly out until adjustment period is over)
- Auto industry functionality for Suriname (Xmas 2018)
- Set all roads of length 0.01 or less to be made to take 100t trucks, so no upgrading needed.

Build #644 on LOGistICAL 2
- Region titles show as yellow once industry and roads are complete...
... caveat on this fix is that most of the roads are currently residing in the one region within the backend data. This is due to the L1 having each road joining a town and the town providing the region. L2 now has many roads that don't join towns and therefore are not mapped to their region. I do have a database fix for this, but haven't yet coded it into the game.

Build #642 on LOGistICAL 2
- Businesses that unlock a town show up white
- Added 6 new contracts
- Moved the business complete speedup contracts to the global contracts

Build #641 on LOGistICAL 2
- Save a "cancel road upgrade" fixed
- One way roads on 8t and less roads removed when upgraded.

- Added an indicator in the town popup of the maximum sized joining road.
- Added a orange square with resource type for towns locked by broken road.

Build #626 on LOGistICAL 2
- Fixed road upgrades that didn't work due to attribute that wasn't being updated.
- Fixed town that has upgrade road going to it to work once reloaded. More testing during play.

Build #625 on LOGistICAL 2: Belgium

You can now upgrade roads.
Press the "B" key to turn on/off road upgrading (will be a button soon).
Hover over any road less than the highest level motorway. It will show red.
Click on the road to upgrade it.
A message will pop up showing the cost of the road upgrade. Click yes to accept
The road will become broken until you supply the resources to finish the upgrade.
You can upgrade broken roads once they are fixed
You can upgrade the same road multiple times
There is a discount if the road being upgraded joins a larger road than the current one.
The closer the road size to the current the better the discount.
