Mod-specific FOData.ini

Post ideas and suggestions on new features or improvements here.

The file FOData.ini at %appdata%\Star Trek Armada II Fleet Operations\ currently affects both standard FO and all mods. This generally works fine, but a few things don't work quite right. Toggling interface elements in one mod also toggles them in all others and FO, sometimes without a way to get them back except from the first mod. Also, some mods, such as the Classic Mod, should have team color while others should not but it is currently defined in a shared file and not something that can be set on a per-mod basis.

I propose that for v4, mods be able to generate their own FOData.ini at %appdata%\Star Trek Armada II Fleet Operations\mods\*modname*\. The new file would be copied from the basic FOData.ini with relevant changes (such as TeamColor=True) defined in the mod's info.ini or a new ini document. This would ensure that the mod inherits existing settings, such as resolution, while also getting mod-specific settings.
