Space Abyss Update - 0.1.2

So I finally got to the point that some of the game files were just too huge to work with. Necessity dicated that I spend some time figuring out how to work with my circular dependency issue - and it turned out to be really simple. Standard node.js requires outside of a module's own exports. Go figure🙂


## [0.1.2] - 2020-05-19

### Added
- Mini Drones now drop batteries
- CNS Stimulant can now be made from Kick Beans in the Food Replicator.
- Heat effect sprite
- Object types (including bodies) can now be weak to electric attacks. The machine body is weak to electric attacks.

### Fixed
- Thiol Extractors can now be assembled.
- Some object spawners were bugged.
- Stairs can now be placed at level 0 and above again.

### Changed

- Ore mined in a ship now defaults to dropping somewhere on the ship floor. Players can build storage containers to
auto stack ore.
- Wow I'm stupid. This whole time I've been adding in game files, and then passing them as parameters to subsequent
game files. This has meant that if a function needed to talk to many part of the game, that function would have to be
in one of the last files loaded. Turns out.... I could have just done things a more normal way from the start, and
just require the other files outside of the module exports. More server files will be created as I decouple the massive game.js. This
ended up being a MASSIVE refactoring of code - but I can split up the codebase so much better now.
- Tons of other game code refactoring.
- Re-did effect sprites. Effect sprites now have a specific image, and a more generic type associated with them. Instead of laser sprites, melee sprites,
it's all now effect sprites using the different textures.
