Whew, pulled off a marathon of programming. This new Race Selection will pop up when you click on "Race" button in new game setup:
Note the description? That's a new UI element that I just added that allows word wrapping and scrolling. It was a bit tricky to figure out, but I managed to accomplish it! There's a bug where you can scroll down past the end of text, I will look into that later. But for now, it all works! I just need to add descriptions for other races.
All of this was done today, now I'm going to bed! :)
