What's New in This Release:
Added the asteroid_field_damage_int to the universe legend, this
specifies an interval in milliseconds on which damage is to be done when flying above the velocity_max of an asteroid field. This also means that existing asteroid_field_damage_rate values may need to be increased.
Added the ignoring of hails and messages from certain objects, the default key mapped to this function is R but you should update your keyboard mapping by going to Options->General->Map Keyboard
Added garbled com messages on SWServ when players send or receive messages in nebulas or asteroid fields.
