Summary0019148: Hard to see buildings under fleet
DescriptionIf you have a large fleetball near important buildings (Starship Constructor, planet controller, etc) it is almost impossible to see or click on those buildings. You need to move your fleetball away (which tends to drag the Controller as well, so you actually need to move the fleet, then find the controller then move the controller back).

Some UI improvements need to be done so you can interact with buildings near a fleetball. Here's a picture. If you stare at it long enough you can find the Starship Constructor, but it takes some time.

I'm pretty positive that this is because the bounding radii of so very many of the squad types are incorrectly small, as are turrets. For a number of the structures, we should also give some buffer room around them in their radius just to keep things clear around buildings, too.

This is purely a data thing -- Cinth, this one is for you, and please update the KDL_ prefixed xml files directly. Thanks!

Increased the radius on all fleetships to 80 as a minimum. Increased the turret radii for small turrets to 50 and gravity generators to 120.

Part of the turret issue is in their formations, gravity gens need a more spaced out formation.
