What is DarkMultiPlayer?
DarkMultiPlayer is a multiplayer mod for KSP. It supports subspace-style (and master controlled warp) warping & career mode, with an easy-to-edit server database.

- Fix the rotation interpolator, this is by far the most obvious change, vessels should no longer "twitch".
- Create and use a UDP meshing library - vessel updates from the same subspace are now sent over UDP directly to other clients. This completely removes the server latency out of the vessel update equation.
- Fix vessels not showing up on the map correctly
- Stop HackyInAtmoLoader from saving vessels that are supposed to be destroyed, this caused lots of duplicates for part updates.

Fix some cases where unity methods were hit in threads (Should fix SET_SUBSPACE disconnect)11
Changed the "sendPlayerToLatestSubspace" server option and removed "keepTickingWhileOffline" (as it no longer makes sense).
When set to "false", you will be sent back to the exact time you disconnected.
When set to "true", you will be sent to the latest universe time (default, and old default behaviour).
As "pausing" the latest time while the server is offline / no players are connected, and remaining locked to a subspace while offline made little sense - I've decided to remove the option which should have never existed in the first place, the option should be a lot more intuitive now, before it depended if a player was online, now it doesn't. It'll also keep you paused even if you turn off the server.
Fix kerbal gender assigner (it stops kerbals in vessels from taking a walk on the wild side)
(Hopefully) Fix the SET_SUBSPACE bug
Fix a lockup caused by the KerbalDodger (resolves double assigns, locked up when reassigning a tourist)
Various bugfixes (flags, threading issues, kerbals)
Fixing a bug that has existed since day one of DMP, the server didn't correctly send players to the latest subspace, only the last created one.
