Small auto-conc for HH concs when you dont jump

New HUD security icons for shutdown style maps

Many visuals now line up correctly in widescreen modes (damage indicators, Context menus etc)

'on fire' hud HUD redness reduced a lot
Cvars for turning off targets + gren trails
Demoman grenades hopefully dont bounce of people any more
Readded interpolation for projectiles

SG now tracks properly when built on a slope
Death by burning is no longer a suicide

Caltrops and radar have been removed. Instead they have a buildable jump pad on +attack2. Jumppad is invincible - det it by double right-tapping. You can only carry one, similar to a detpack. They last 60 seconds before auto-detting. Any team can use them.
Players can only use a jump pad once every second, so they dont get multiple triggers.
Max conc speed after using the jumppad
Reduced conc time for Scout down to Medic level

Blue pipe fuse timer dramatically decreased (from 2.5 to 1.1 seconds). Pipetrap explosion radius increased from 125 to 150.
Right click now discards medpacks for teammates to use (thanks mirv). These take 10 cells to use and the medic slowly recharges cells over time. Medpacks last 5 seconds before disappearing so the person you are throwing to has to pick them up soon (you can't leave a supply for your defenders for example)
New HW AC System! : Overheat removed (!), rof changed from 0.06-0.12 to 0.05-0.15. cof changed from 0.10-0.15 to 0.05-0.30.

Polished, bug-fixed version of the community map. Thanks Yann "Sh4x" Richer
Dustbowl now compiles properly, various visual fixes (gaps in ceilings etc)
New scoring system, capping flag results in that teams flag being reset back to cage, other team unaffected and can continue capturing. First to 3 captures wins and everyone resets.
Extended balcony area around cap point for additional SG position
Epicenter ammo bags now give a slight amount of health/armor (thanks gingerlord)
Epicenter 3-cap LUA system added, some various tweaks
Updated ff_hunted lua script - ''Assassins can now have 7 players, including snipers and 1 spy. Bodyguards can now have Soldiers, Demomen, Medics, HWGuys, Pyros, Engineers, and 1 Sniper. The Hunted now has unagi power and only takes damage from sniper rifle, crowbar, tranq, and knife.''
Monkey is now Red vs Blue
Monkey FPS vastly improved
Revamped version of ff_openfire_b2, with better lighting, clipped lights, decent water, better flag-security system, custom teamcoloured security buttons and stuff
Updated ff_waterpolo - ''this map now has gameplay more similar to pigskin, a classic fun map, mainly by making the map bigger, removing the respawn rooms, adding side resupply rooms, adding an invisible wall that gets disabled after a 15 second start timer before each round, and allowing buildables that don't die after goals. Also added soundscapes and locations, replaced side steps with with steep ramps for fun trimping and double jumping. Oh, and also removed goalie invincibility and boundaries, made goalies have no armor and no ability to pick up resupply items, and made goalies faster than scouts.''
Well front door buttons removed, walk up to it = it opens
