- Sliding now keeps you crouched if you used the toggle crouch key.
- The size of the weapon is now kept consistent regardless of cl_ads_fov_scale setting.
- New first person ready animations for the M16, M4A1 and MK18.

- Switched over to the ISteamUGC API for managing Workshop content. This allows for addons of any file size and uploaders are no longer bound by a quota.

- Theater scripts now load several of the sound scripts rather than having it in the game_sounds_manifest.txt, this allows theater mods to easily override most of the in-game audio.

- Added 3rd person model attachment system that can be used to add bonemerged model to a player model. This can also be used to create fallbacks when a gear item is not equipped (“fallback_for_slot”).
- New attachment points have been created on player models to determine where they are placed when holstered.
- Added several input and output events to the ins_rulesproxy entity.
- Added Start Breakable flag to prop_door_rotating. This allows for L4D2/CSGO style destructible doors.
Thanks! Have fun!
