* SecondsSinceBrownout is no longer synced via the periodic-sync-correction for factions, since that was probably messing with things on the client.
** Additionally, brownout messages will never be shown except for the actual player who is in a brownout.

* QueueChatMessageOrCommand() now properly handles the ChatType.ShowLocallyOnly. This was never fully implemented for multiplayer purposes, it seems.
** This also now only writes to the "MomentaryDisplayLog", and does not clutter up the long-term chat log even in single-player.
** This means that brownout notices, "can't build there" notices, and similar don't go in the way of the chat from the AI or other informational bits.

* Between the above two items, this should be a solution to the excessive brownout notices reported by Puffin, Democracy, Suzera, Ipsum, and perhaps others.
