Added Conquest Protection system for Clan Holdings
- Conquest protection can now be applied through the GUI (in the clan city overview)
- Protecting a holding costs Dominion points
- Protecting a holding can be done once per 24 hours, but a clan can protect any number of their holdings at the same time, for an increased Dominion cost.
- Two protections have been added, a "short" 6 hour protection and a "long" 12 hour protection.
- The protection system’s timers "tick" in "real-time" (meaning that they continue to "tick" during server down-time).
The "clan selectable" protections can be set to automatically renew. When this is enabled, the protection will auto-renew as soon as it is available again. So, for example, if a clan selects the "short" 6 hour protection, with auto-renewal, it will begin immediately, and expire 6 hours later (when the holding will be once again available for sieging). When the "once per 24 hour" restriction ends (18 hours after the protection expired), if the clan has the Dominion to pay for the renewal, the holding will automatically enter the 6 hour protection once again. Given the "real-time" nature of the system, this renewal will still happen, even if the servers are offline at the point when the protection is due to renew. The auto-renew setting is independent of the actual protection application, so a protection can be applied to a holding, and at any time (while it is still active) the auto-renew can be toggled on/off.
If a holding is set to auto-renew its protection, but during the "cool-down" (after protection has expired, but before it can be re-applied) another clan declares a siege against the holding, the protection system will disable itself. This means that the auto-renewal will be disabled and will need to be reapplied again after the siege (and any "due to conquest" protection) has ended and protection is available once again.
While a holding is protected from conquest challenges, any other clan that views the protected holding's overview GUI will not see the "conquest initiation" component, but will see a ticking timer that indicates how much time remains in the holding's applied protection (and when it can be sieged once again).
As with all other clan actions, only members with the appropriate permission (or the mayor of the specific holding) are able to alter a holdings’ protection. Permissions apply to both the application of protection, as well as altering the auto-renew setting.
The costs of protection are based on the number of hours that the holding will be protected for.
Currently these costs are 50 (per hour) for hamlets, and 100 (per hour) for cities, so to apply the "long" 12 hour protection to a city will cost a clan 1,200 Dominion.
The cost also goes up based on the number of protected holdings that the clan has, so it will cost 1,200 Dominion to protect the 1st city, but 2,400 for the 2nd, 3,600 for the 3rd etc.
The "holdings being protected" include only those that are actually protected at the time, not the ones that might be in the "cool-down" period after protection has expired.

- The clan must be accepting both new members (in general) and applications from the player’s race, to be displayed when the filter is active.
- The clan member roster now has a “summon clan member” button next to the information button for each clan member, that can be used (like the social window) to summon players
- The portal shard is still required, as is the case with summon via the social window
- All tool-tips in clan windows now have both a “title” and “description” component, to ensure a consistent display of the tool-tips (using the two color format)

- Changed Clan Holding state icons
- Changed holding icons in conquest GUI components to match the new icons for the clan holding states.
- All conquest GUI components (icons and buttons) should now display a tool-tip
Territorial Control Display
The clan overview window now displays a list of all villages that are currently controlled by the clan, below the owned holdings list.
Each village in the list has a “show on map” button to open the world map, centered on the village position.
The icons for each village indicate the current state (count-down, vulnerable or stealing) of the village.
Stealer information will only be visible when viewed by a member of the clan, other (non-clan member) viewers will still see the underlying state.
The clan holding overview window now displays a similar list of villages (above the bound citizens list).
This list is only visible to members of the clan, and displays not only the villages that are currently controlled by the clan, but all villages in the holding’s territory.
The number in the list title describes how many of the possible villages the clan currently controls.
In addition to the village states, the icons also indicate the current ownership state (free, this clan owned or other clan owned) of villages in this list.
In both lists, the tool-tip for the village icons should mirror the tool-tip that is present on the world map, with timers, owner clan etc.
The holding list (in the clan overview window) has also been updated to display various states (owner, type, conquest, vulnerable, protected etc.) using different colored icons.
As with the villages, the tool-tip for the holding icons should mirror the world-map tool-tips, with timers etc.
All lists and icons update dynamically, and instantly, for changes in holding/village ownership or state, both for clan member and non-clan member viewers.
