This has always been minor annoyance, but if we're goint to have alien ruleset and related tileset in 2.6 that are incompatible with other rulesets/tilesets, we need to improve this somehow.

Now, if I start client with my testing alien tileset (not publicly available due to licensing issues): "./fcgui -t SLalien", and then try to connect to server that runs some toher ruleset than alien, client aborts due to incompatible tileset. The nasty thing is that such a connection is always attempted when I simply "Start New Game" or otherwise try to spawn server from the client. Initially server runs classic ruleset.

For testing the problem without alien tileset: ancients modpack has the same problem: Start client as "./fcgui -t ancients" and try to "Start New Game".
