Allow for simple emulation of a piston launcher by allowing a non-zero initial velocity to be set for a given simulation. To be a bit more realistic, allow a time offset for the start of simulation, to allow for the time spent on the piston. It would not be appropriate to try to integrate a piston simulation with OpenRocket, but this simple patch would allow simulation of the remainder of the flight, given either empirical or analytical piston launcher data.
