Fixes Multi-tool mining speed

Permissions and credits
Soon or later, everyone playing NMS eventualy ask himself : "hey, but am I not supposed to mine faster with this update ?"
And we somehow mentaly compare time before and after the update with a suspicious doubt.
But we finaly leave the question aside and continue our journey...

That's what I did too so far until I saw a footage of the latest Exo-Mech update and noticed mining tool upgrade was working for exo-mech !
I finally thought something might be wrong with the regular multi-tool and that I probably know the solution.
And something was indeed wrong : the speed property used for multi-tool upgrades has been deprecated during an early update to be replaced by the damage one as only the damage power is really driving the speed at which the mining tool destroys things.

So long story short : I fixed the multi-tool updates.

In details :
- Advanced Laser is now really 15% faster
- Optical Drill now has a pink/purple beam and according icon like Exocrafts mining updates
- Procedural mining updates now brings the speed bonus announced (though already installed modules aren't updated so you might need to replace them to get the proper speed bonus. If they have a speed property, it's not ok, if they have a damage property, it's fine)

So here it is : a working multitool mining technology to enjoy :)
