- Added functionality, SHIFT now shows the region links of the region below the cursor (if no Stack is selected).

- Movement path is now color coded

and a lot more small fixes

UI

Marius vs Sulla scenario:

The Roman Civil War (Caesar vs Pompey) scenario:
- Lagid armies will be unlocked if Caesar invades Egypt (will prevent later historical chain of options related to Pompey fleeing to Egypt)
- Pompey dilemna message broadcasted
- Fix to consequences of Pompey strategic choice if not chosen by the player
- Small fix to consequences of the "Pompey goes West" choice: loyatly will now be increased by 25 in Hispania and by 10 in Africa

Septimius Severus scenario
- Small fix to Severus choice consequences if not chosen by the player



Parthian Wars expansion:
- Data (events, options, etc) for all scenarios


NB:
Due to database changes patch 1.03 will not be, in principle, guaranteed compatible with saved games
Also, some changes will not be applied yet to the "old" DLC scenarios (Spartacus and Cantabrian Wars), like the removal of cavalry from legions
