Added a per-category setting for chat notification audio.





Fixing an issue where parts of the Han Veo would be missing for players who had a customized version of it before last week's patch.



Implemented a potential fix for the issue where it was, at times, possible for a player to see through certain walls and vehicles

Killing yourself with your own vehicle will no longer show a "Killed by <PlayerName>" message on the death screen.
