Garry's Mod (GMOD) October 2018 Update Crash fixes and minor improvements

#1
October 2018 Update

Crash fixes and minor improvements across the board

The October 2018 Update

This update brings a bunch of smaller changes while we are working on bigger things.
We have made many small improvements to the Lua API as well as the Half-Life campaign compatibility with Garry's Mod, and fixed a bunch of crashes.

There are multiple improvements to Half-Life NPCs, such as fixing Combine Snipers not shooting at players in some cases, a fix for Barnacles not picking up players from vehicles and a fix for a bunch of effects not working in multiplayer in some cases on NPCs like the Combine Gunship's.

We have also added Half-Life: Source turrets to the game, so they will now appear on Half-Life: Source maps.
We also improved the game's disk space usage, so over time less files will be created from things like spawnicons of error models, and Worskhop Addons no longer store both the compressed and uncompressed versions of each addon downloaded from servers you play on.

There's also support for the $treesway shader parameter, which should enable addon creators to make more immersive maps:


You will find full changelist below.
