Summary0004602: Snapshots feature ignoring / not notifying about folder size limit

Steps To ReproduceTurn on snapshots, wait for the game to save enough that exceeds the limit in the settings.
TagsNo tags attached.

Looking into the snapshots feature, there's never been any code doing any cleanup or deletion. It just issues a warning to the console if the snapshot size *for the current map* exceeds the given size in MB.

"AutoSaver: The snapshot files in C:\Games\darkmod\maps\snapshots\ total more than 100 MB. You might consider cleaning up."

I won't implement anything like auto-deletion for the moment being (I want to avoid algorithms automatically deleting stuff in the background). But I improved the user notification somewhat:

A warning popup will appear once after exceeding the limit, and will not re-appear unless the size goes below the threshold again in the meantime.

Also, default per-map snapshot size increased to 1 GiB.
