[SS] Shoehorn, supercarier

#1
The first iteration of this vessel. The Shoehorn class aircraft carier.

As downloads youll find:
- The Data.txt
- Flounder & Lynx data.txt

I'm using those two player submissions as placeholder units. They should be replaced at some point to be whatever main fighter jet and basic combat heli the SS will be using.

Currently I'm not too happy with the Jet spawner, as it's on top of the deck. Other then that, it does give the launch effect the US ships have.

Combat tests reveal that unless you get a lucky hit on either vehicle spawner, she is a pain to take down, and can take on most 40 strenght AI ships currently ingame. Vehicle spawns are around 2 minutes (1 of each) and should be tweaked for desired balance. Also, there should be a way to limit the amount of aircraft this thing spawns, since it will just keep building.

So it's spawn cycle needs some work, but is functional for testing now.

In order for the vehicle to currently work as a SS ship in designer, the hangar is loaded with resource parts. This needs fixing of some sort, and it does not always work (especially if something gets damaged on spawn)

Practicalities aside, I encourage anyone to take a stab at improving this ships details, especially the vehicle spawning and AI part!

Please note, the Flounder and Lynx are not my designs!

The ship has:

- Almost 30k Blocks
- Spawns with 2 planes and 1 heli
- 7.5mil RP (scewed by supply boxes)
- Almost full walkable interior
- Single steel hull, lots of compartiments
- +- 1.5m/s speed
- Decent turn speed
- Taken way too much of my time

Armaments:
- 4 sponson mounted tripple missile launcher
- 6 spread out LAMS lasers

To add realism, this ship also has a large fuel and ammo storage, to increase vulnerability and because planes need fuel and ammo.
