Change in the flare-game repo

We made a big change to the flare-game repo today, hopefully to help distributors/packagers in the future.

The repo at no longer contains source code. It only contains the mods (and supporting data sources) for the actual game.

If you’re playing flare-game from the latest sources, you’ll now need to pull from flare-game for data and flare-engine for sources.

We suggest that a similar separation be used when distributing Flare in software repos, starting with the upcoming version 0.19. First the flare-engine repo is the bare-bones engine, and then flare-game which relies on the engine repo. Other games, like Polymorphable, can also be distributed this way (package just the game mods and set flare-engine as a requirement).
