Summary0006336: Support several independent user addon scripts.
DescriptionThanks to 0005179, there is a hardcoded script file which is included in tdm_main.script, and hardcoded global function name which is called on start.

However, several people make addons, and players want to install them by merely putting them into a proper directory.
For this to work, we need to include existing all script files matching a hardcoded template, and execute all global functions matching a hardcoded template.

Implemented in svn revs 10503 and 16844.

The new interface for user addons can be seen in tdm_main.script:

// dragofer: add support for users to add custom addon scripts to their base installation, without relying on tdm_custom_scripts.script which is often already in use by FM authors
// legacy approach 0005179: include one script which can be overrided by players
#include "script/tdm_user_addons.script"
// new approach 0006336: include all scripts with predefined prefix
#include "script/tdm_user_addons_*.script"

void tdm_main() {
    // dragofer: initialises any user addons included
    // legacy approach 0005179: run single function (immediately)
    // new approach 0006336: run all functions with predefined prefix (in new threads)
