Yet another Simulator release

Here’s another small release to quickly fix a few bugs and add some cool things:

   - the copy/paste bug that occured after deleting a bot is gone
    - the temporary files of the game logs will be deleted when you close the simulator (you might want to check your default temporary directory because it’s probably filled up with a bunch of game logs)
    - added some heuristics for Shanty Town
    - improved Courtyard a little by letting it put useless terminal actions back on the deck
    - modified Bishop and Chapel slightly to enable “the Golden Deck” (NGN – The Golden Deck)
    - and finally I added a cute bot that gains 1000 VP in 13 turns (it’s HUMONGOUS)

Nice, ty.

This Golden Deck bot seems to be really strong indeed.

Thanks for the frequent updates!

However, the golden deck bot doesn't really work right. It has a couple problems:
1. On a 5-card deck of [bishop, silver, silver, copper, chapel] it trashes the copper to buy silver instead of chapel to buy gold. I know this is because trashing priority of copper is higher, and I don't know if you think it's not worth making special cases for stuff like this.
2. It completely chokes vs another strategy with bishop. On that same 5-card deck, it trashes the copper on the opponents turn, then trashes the chapel to buy silver and keeps trashing silver to buy silver, getting stuck on the not-so-golden deck of [bishop, silver, silver, silver] forever. I suppose some fix to the trashing on your opponents turn is in order (at least don't trash if your deck has <= 5 cards maybe?)

Yes, I knew about those problems with the Golden Deck, but I decided to not touch the Bishop card implementation anymore in light of the KISS principle. The code for Bishop now fits on one screen and works fine.
If I find a fix that is simple and will not interfere with how the card should be played in normal decks I'll put it in.
