Hospital Café / Thanks, thoughts, suggestions and some error logs

Fantastic work on CorsixTH, I'm very glad to play Theme Hospital again!

If I could have just one single wish it would be for an option to disable room destruction. Something like adding "Room Destruction YES/NO" in the Settings, default should be YES of course because it was like that in the original game.

The idea is that when NO is selected the machines would still take damge during earthquakes but they would stop at 1 health so the room never gets destroyed.

Earthquakes are fun but whenever a room gets destroyed I have to load the game because it is the only time the game starts crashing. CorsixTH is pretty stable otherwise. At least on the shorter levels.

It's also the only time when it feels like you may have to load due to no fault of your own. If several rooms in the hospital gets destroyed it can basically means game over just because the handymen didn't repair properly or because the quake lasted for so long. So you load the last autosave and click around trying to order panic repairs or you take bank loans to replace the machines in the middle of the earthquake. Not really fun and I think giving people the option to skip room destructions altogether aren't unreasonable.

Alternatively if "Room Destruction" is set to NO you could make the machine simply disappear instead of destroying the whole room. That way the player must still pay the price for a new machine, though it might still feel unfair sometimes so I think simply preventing damage from going below 1 would be the best. The room will still stop working until it is repaired and that downtime is a cost in of its own.

Anyway, thank you very much for making this! Keep up the good work!
