Main Menu Adjustments IMPLEMENTED

Based from most strategy games that ever existed in the market everywhere, the current main menu is kinda unusual unlike other strategy games. I think the current main menu might have confused some people that were getting started. To familiarize interface to newbies and anyone, I suggest about some adjustment to make the main menu more neat and easily understandable with much more self explanatory titles as well.

These are the suggested changes for first page:

------

Single Player (Instead of "Campaigns")
Multiplayer (Instead of "Multiplayer Game")
Skirmish (Instead of "Random Game")
Shop (Instead of "Upgrades")
Map Editor (Instead of "Design A Map (Beta)")
Settings
Account
Other (Instead of Docs & Settings & Forum)

------ Now, when we click on "Other" (Sorted by importance mostly)...

Help
Map Editor Help (instead of Map Design Help)
Achievements
Friends (Is this possible to move to "Multiplayer" somehow?)
Maintenance And Speed Up (Instead of Maintenance, speedup)
How To Get Gems
Community Forum
Version Log
Send Logcat To Dev

------And, when we click "Single Player"...

Tutorials (Instead of "Tutorial Maps")

Campaigns (Instead of "Storylines")
Scenarios (Instead of "Skirmish Maps")

Maps From AoS/F/WW Fans (Depends on game)
Market Maps (Instead of "From Market")
My Maps (Instead of "Own Maps")

PLEASE NOTE that every button has to be in this exact order and has to have this exact name or the project might get ruined.

Yes, the main menu does need an update, and that looks brilliant. I guess it isn't much work and would be easy to implement. What you suggested overall looks better and good.

It can save some confusion and additionally it will look a little bit cleaner.

If we move random games into singleplayer, since they are usually played by one person with AI. We'll have enough space to put map editor in first page, since every map creator wants to use it on boot.

Though I'm sure majority does. But that's completely your choice.

Upgrades stayed as "Upgrades" instead of "Shop". Is this intentional?

yes, as there were too many references to upgrade and "shop" has a feeling as pay to win game.

In AoF Scenarios are back to "Skirmish Maps". Why?
