Relay server

Relay server can be created to allow huge numbers of players to spectate the main server without interrupting the players on the main server. You see everything on the main server but the relay server's chat is not sent towards the main server, but main server chat can be seen on relay.

To start a relay server, you have to set <allow_spectator_relays>True</allow_spectator_relays> in main server config file.
