Settings Menu Rework

* The UI has been changed to match the rest of the game, and the layout has been improved making the settings easier to navigate

* Now converts Yellow Gems to Red

Royal Engineer
* Armor buff to Allies now scales off Magic

Tankbot now deals true damage so he continues to have Armor to steal.
