Increase game round to 4, reduce interceptor combat range, arsenal bomber, launcher launch 3 "fighter bomber"

Currently the game has 3 round. If a fighter is launched at round 2, it can only fight for 1 round, which is very inefficiet.
4 game round will unlock a new play style "more bay than launcher".
This will make plasmic hull "really" a capable warship.

If we have 4 round, flak will be much more powerful, because it can shot at most 9 fighters. But if you have more bay than launcher, fighter will be much cheaper, negate that. Maybe up some price.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Part 2, reduce interceptor combat range.
Currently interceptor is overpowered. It can kill bombers, block canon round, damage enemy ships. Makes bomber almost useless.
Reduce combat range, means they can only fight at own fleet, can not attack enemy interceptor or ships.
So if you have many interceptors and enemy don't have many bombers, then its just an expensive defense system. Still powerful but not very OP.
Have too many interceptors will make your fleet over protected, not a good design.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Part 3, arsenal bomber
Currently bomber is too weak. Arsenal bomber means:
1 Bomber can fires before interceptor's come. ( long range attack mode )
2 Bomber may need someone to help lock target. Can be "fighter bomber" or setient hull. That means at the start of bomber's attack round, you must have at least 1 "fighter bomber" or setient hull alive on the battle field. If true, bomber will turn into longe range attack mode.
3 Bomber can also fire without others to help lock target. In that case, bomber can not fire before interceptor's come. They may be killed before they can fire.
4 Bomber fire all its ammo in one round. If not killed, then recollected. Not relaunchable.
5 Bomber is protected by "fighter bomber", which means interceptor must kill "fighter bomber" first before it can kill bomber.
6 Bomber can't do air combat.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Part 4, launcher launch 3 "fighter bomber"
If we reduce interceptor's combat range, then "fighter bomber" will be much more needed, because only "fighter bomber" can kill enemy interceptor.
Launcher launch 3 "fighter bomber" can be easier to design.
Bomber need "fighter bomber" to protect. Interceptor can launch 4 per round, if "fighter bomber" can only launch 2 per round then, ship design will need many launchers to provide enough "fighter bomber" to protect bomber, makes "fighter bomber" much more expensive.

Fighters are currently launched in round 1, fight in rounds 2 and 3.
