Utilities

Wolfy's Mod and Utilities manager may end up including a utility for TransData. Though this needs confirmation. H Iris's TransData1.6 Utility though out of date still has reported function with the current version of Transcendence. H Iris has reported that he is working on an updated version of the TransData Utility.
