Allows effects to be added to vehicles with xml files!

Recent features

- Load (sort of) custom particleeffects via xml! Check this discussion page on how to do it and for sharing examples!
- Load custom sound effects via xml! Check this discussion page on how to do it and for sharing examples!
- Editor for creating and previewing configs in the Asset Editor! (The button may be hidden behind a EAE panel if you use that as well. Just drag the panel away)
- Mod folders are now searched for VehicleEffectsDefinition.xml

Other features

- Light, sound and particle effects can be added to any vehicle.
- Several new particle and sound effects made for use with vehicles.
- Press Ctrl + Alt + V to reload effects (useful for asset creators)
- Existing effects can be removed from vehicles.

Known issues (asset creators)
- Config does not load when bundling vehicles with assets that are not vehicles or props in a single workshop item:
a vehicle or prop asset file (.crp) MUST be first in the list when ordering all .crp files in the upload alphabetically by filename. If another kind of asset is first the mod WILL NOT be able to find the config files.

Partially based on Network Skins by boformer to get the xml files working.

Check this discussion page for a (partial) list of assets using this mod!
I've updated several of my assets to include a config file to make use of this mod, so check those out as well.

When uploading there is a folder icon somewhere (I think around the preview image somwhere) that you can click, it opens a temporary folder with the .crp file in it. Just copy the xml into that same folder and it will be included in the upload.

Hey how I might upload in workshop my custom train with this effects file inside? I have my custom train in crp file and effects in VehicleEffectsDefinition.xml file. The game allows me upload only crp file. Is there anything I can do with this? :hardhat:

Error while parsing vehicle effect definition file(s). Assets will work but may have effects missing. Contact the author of the asset(s).
List of errors:
1994365516 - Vehicle with name 1994365516 not loaded.
1996616298 - Vehicle with name 1996616298 not loaded.

... Not much info to explain the errors here. Not even a clue from a random number what vehicles it is that are borked.

I'll look into it, I think it should be doable
