total damage caused with player's assistance

fire direction indicators became more informative: they display information about amounts of received/blocked damage, enemy vehicle that performed the shot, marker and name of the vehicle, if it is currently spotted. Moreover, added the option that informs players about the amount of received/blocked damage for each particular shot: the wider the fire marker background, the more damage the player's vehicle received/blocked.
