* Renamed BProject/BProjectKernel funcs to keep consistent with new framework mehods
GUI:
* Changed track selection screens to allow both single screen, and double screen, layouts to work alongside each other
Render:
* Fix for far cascade scene query results being too small (early morning/late evening time of day on a few tracks were hitting “SceneGraph AddObjectResult – Not enough Space” resulting in disappearing shadows in the far distance)
* DX11 – Fixed DepthClipEnable default value (just Align with what DX9 does)
