New functions:

set_player_name(PLAYER, NAME) - sets player's name.
create_shape(PN,ME/C3D/C2D/MAPIDX,BLDG_MODEL,ANGLE) -- similar to what you do when laying down plans, but done via scripting, additionally it will return Thing (if you declare a var for it).

Ability to draw sprites in OnFrame() hook.

Accessiable vars/globals:
access to - gsi.Players[PN].Flags
access to - NumPeopleInBalloons ; NumPeopleInBoats ; NumPeopleOfType
access to - worldinfo / playerinfo from ALT+H menu (for recoloring world view icons / alpha and such) ti'll be useful for modding tribe colors.
