Juno change seems odd. It would be more useful to extend its radar / jammer denial capabilities. Maybe have it deny all radar indiscriminately in an area for 30 seconds + paralyze all radars and jammers in an area for 30 seconds?

Some remarks about the widgets:

The icon of ground AA used to be different than other defense. I think that should be reverted back to see where you need to place your ground AA (and also see enemies' one more easily)

About custom formation: if you select mobile AND fix unit, you get a number of point that depend on the total of the unit and not on the number of unit you can actually move: it make sense only the moving unit must be taken into account.
Also it will be nice to draw both the point (or circle) but also to keep a small line (like before): sometimes you lose the continuity of what you draw of there are tremendous amount of stuff on the screen, like a lot of unit.

Also, I still think bantha need a nerf, something like an increase overall cost of 20% or a decrease speed of 20%

The icon of ground AA used to be different than other defense.
The reason this happened before was because there were bugs in the way icons displayed (and those bugs are fixed in 7.76). I agree that it's useful for ground AA to have it's own icon and I'll make one for the next release.
About custom formation...

Hmm... I think the mod can't test easily which units can be moved and which can't. I can certainly exclude immobile stuff but can't check easily if a mobile unit is stuck or unable to reach destination (e.g. if you are asking a tank into water)

The line as well as circles sounds useful to me - it seems like it should be easy to implement but I know the old line drew in slightly the wrong place, so I'll see...
