#140 Multiplayer: player colors and empire names


When joining a multiplayer game, the same colour is selected for each joining player. The same applies to the name of the empire.

New players should automatically get a unused colour and should get an empire name that is not used yet.

    This is partly implemented: players joining multiplayer games are given unique colours, and players' empires' names default to the players' names, which will usually be different, assuming players have unique names.
