Summary0004122: Add support for generic element attachment

There should be support for attachment of elements that arent standard physical entities.

At this time, attachment is supported by objects,vehicles,peds,markers,blips and radar areas (and partially pickups).

With the increasing amount of MTA elements, it is often desirable to attach such elements as well. These include colshapes, 3D sounds, water etc.

This can be achieved by manually calculating offset positions and forcing the positions manually for these special elements.

TagsNo tags attached.

Attaching water to stuff is problematic. Each corner of a water area must be on an even integer X and Y coordinate. Also the sides of a water quadrant are always axis aligned, no matter how you position the corners (i.e. can't rotate quadratic water).

Just to emphasize the situation with pickups:

1) Elements can be attached fine to pickups
2) Pickups cannot be attached to other elements. This is clearly because pickups use colshapes internally - and colshapes cannot be attached. This has meant pickup->element attachment is blocked.
