v0.2.1 fixed the option not being available for stations

This mod allows the player to apologize for unintended attacks which offers the possibility to defuse unintended combat actions without destroying friendly relations for no reason at all. 

How it works:
- player must have neutral or better relations towards a faction to be able to stop an ongoing fight
- player can contact a now hostile ship over the comm menu (c) and select "Apologize for attack" (ship must have a pilot)
- to comm a station, be in comm range, then open the station information and rightclick the manager name (may just be "???"), to select "comm"
- all hostile ships and stations of the selected ship's faction in the sector are dropping hostile actions towards the player's ships unless reengaged
- permanent faction loss will still happen, but the player is able to stop escalations before the real relation damage is done (when shit starts blowing up)

If u encounter any issues or have ideas for improvement, please let me know. :) 

Known issues: 
- temporary hostile targets won't show the surrender option, but as this only happens for ships you have good faction relations to
 and the bail check happens just the same with every shot you fire, it won't impact your gameplay at all.
- the vanilla ability to comm a hostile station manager may no longer be possible since a somewhat recent update. As a workaround simply apologize to a ship of the same faction in vicinity of the station (yes you can shoot one to get it to dislike you)

Installation: 
Download the file, extract the apologizeforattack folder and move it to your extensions folder.

Deinstallation: 
Simply remove the file, no savegame issues whatsoever.
