Summary

Since many if not most players won't notice the new snapping feature from rP23330/D2079, here a loading screen tooltip that indicates the feature.

Test Plan

For the screenshot, I thought about using ptolemians since they get free houses and corrals, so it could demonstrate the use case for alignment better.
Also housewalls are common around fields around the CC.
If someone wants to do better you are free to do so.

Shouldn't you inform them what the hotkey is?

Also, structures, not buildings, per https://trac.wildfiregames.com/wiki/EnglishStyleGuide

informing which hotkey isn't really possible, since users can have different hotkeys set

What do you mean? Additional text that it's possible to disable the feature?
