Invisible sails fix

Since the client version 0.112, there's a weird issue present with ship sails where they appear to be invisible in offshore scenes, as shown on the image below. This is a huge issue in instances like English Channel, in which players need to know the color of the ship sails in order to decide whether they should sink them or not.

After some research, we found out the cause for this problem is a missing dynamic link library called Rigging.dll. It appears the library is dedicated to rendering sail physics. The file should be located in ..\Voyage Century Online\voyage\dll folder. Why is this file excluded from the latest client versions is unknown for the time being.

We dug out the file from an older client version and after some testing, it appears to be working without any problems.

We made a small patch to solve this issue. By installing, the patch will add the missing library to the dedicated folder.
