Added new hollow type: Torch
Added new graphics mode which renders things differently.
Sand gets rendered as spheres
Solid objects, hollow shapes and generator get rendered as cubes
Fire is fire ;)
Gases are rendered as particle clouds
Liquids are rendered as different particle clouds (I'm not happy with the way it looks and behaves, this will change later)
